Hey, hey, hey-lo there! My name is Ezekiel James Boston and thank you for stopping by my Patreon page to join this epic journey. (Did you say epic?) You bet your sweet bippy, I did.

Granted, on the front end, using epic to describe what I’m going to be putting down is a bit grandiose. No argument there. However, I’m in my head and epic is one of the few words that encapsulates my vision. (Vision? Like, what, a hallucination?) No, not quite. (Madness?) Closer.

Anyhow, that's who I am. Now on to the next W.


What I— (Wait, talk about the madness.) Mm-mm. Like I was saying, what I do is tell stories. While I’m more than comfortable calling myself a writer, I don’t reach for "storyteller" as I believe that exchange requires a live audience. (Madness?) Shh.

If it’s speculative fiction, it’s my jam. From fantasy to science fiction, from slipstream to horror, from interactive to litRPG; it’s all good. In fact, I’ve even authored the occasional romance. And I mean real romance. The kinds that is all about the relationship and ends with a happily ever after. (Romance? You?) Yeah, you heard me. Got a problem with that? ( … ) Good.

While a lot of my fiction has people of color in it, I'm not pushing an agenda. I like to write stories that mirrors our world and there are people—not stereotypes—of all ethnicities and walks of life.


Like many writers, I started young. The first creation I shared outside of family was a short D&D campaign titled Goblin Gems when I was nine. Many years have passed since then. So, don’t worry. My craft has improved. I promise.

Part of creating fiction for a living is making time for the work and using that time to create. Through experiment, I've discovered that mornings work best for me and I am producing.

As much as I want to share right now, I’m currently building a buffer of content that’s going to be available via Patreon. I’m eyeballing June for the official start of short stories and September for novels and audio. The delay is needed for editing purposes.


While the vast majority of what I create will be available through all of the usual retailers, some projects will be exclusive to Patreon supporters and subscribers over at my webpage.

Also, unless under contract, all of my projects will be available here and on my website before going out to wide distribution. And, if a project is under contract, I will try to have giveaways or some other other perk for you all.  While I don't foresee contracted to work, one never knows what the futures holds.

Ultimately, though, if you're here, you deserve first access. Period.


Why Patreon? I have always strived to keep my cost of living as low as possible. Because of my extremely limited time in the past, my only hope for earning on my fiction was to get a book deal; which meant signing over all rights, and praying for success. Now I can focus on writing while connecting with those who enjoy my work. Plus, Patreon has great community tools that enables interactivity.

Why become a patron of mine? For the ride and because no one can tell the stories that I bring to the world. Stories that explore various aspects of the human condition, question morality, and take you on one heck of an adventure.


How will I do this? With focus.

Your patronage means a great deal to me and I am one to always hold up my end. Always.

In closing, thank you again for stopping by. It's going to be a fantastic journey and I hope that you sign on, saddle up, and ride toward the sunset with me.

Truly,
EJ (Zeek)
