From the Dust tells the story of the fall of Jerusalem in 587 BC from the perspective of the biblical prophet Jeremiah and the extra-biblical prophet Nephi. It is created for families that live in a variety of economic circumstances worldwide. Rather than have some kind of "pay wall" that excludes those in less fortunate circumstances, I've instead decided to make the series completely free to read online. You can support the project by becoming a Patron for just a few dollars a month. Patrons get extra perks like early access to concept art and storyboards and lots more depending on your Patron level. I'm still figuring out the mid-level perks but come along for the ride! We'd love to have you.

- Hey folks! I've thought a lot about the mid-range rewards $5-15 but I came to the conclusion that it will be best to set these in stone once there is a community of 100-200 patrons to survey rather than just me arbitrarily handing out stuff you may not actually want. Hopefully it won't take that long to get that many Patrons! Buy in at $2 and you can upgrade later!
