Who? I'm Jon, also known as the author J.L. Zenor. I'm a writer of science fiction and fantasy short stories, and soon to be novels. I also plan on writing Christian fiction in the near future. It is my dream to become a full time professional author.

Check out my stories, Rite of Passage and Guardian, or the anthologies I'm in, Domesticated Velociraptors and Adventures in Zookeeping. If you like what I write consider becoming a supporter.

What?
Patreon is a place where fans of my work can become supporters, helping me work towards those goals. By becoming a supporter you agree to give a donation, kind of like a tip, every time I release a new short story (about 2-4 per year).

Then, as a way to say Thank you, I will give you stuff! Mostly copies of what I'm writing, as well as some other nifty things.

When? Typically it takes me a good three months to write a short story while real life is happening all around me. But as deadlines approach, as I learn how to write and edit more efficiently, and as I see my fans really wanting more of my writing I hope to get that down to one month.

Why? Writing is extremely time consuming and difficult. It isn't about just sitting down and writing whatever ideas come to my head. It takes many hours to plan, many more hours to write, and countless hours to edit revision after revision, to make sure the story will be enjoyable to all of my readers. And real life doesn't give me much time to put towards pursuing my dream when you have bills to pay and a family to feed and writing just doesn't pay much, yet.

By supporting me on Patreon you help give a lot of motivation to take the time to sit down and finish these projects. Normally I have to spend my time doing things that bring in paychecks. If I get even $100 of support on Patreon it means that my time spent secluding myself from my family in the evenings can earn me something and be worthwhile, helping me reach the next step in becoming a best selling author.

Even though the money raised only goes towards writing (paying for an editor, cover artist, ordering books, business cards, conventions, etc), every dollar given means one less dollar I need to take out of my family budget.


Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my Patreon page. If you want to become a supporter, then I can't thank you enough for helping me live my dream. But even if being a supporter isn't for you I thank you for taking the time to check it out.


tl;dr
- Help me live my dream of becoming a full time author by giving a tip every time I release a short story
- If you do, you'll get awesome stuff from me
- The stories will be released every 2-6 months
- For your own protection, you can limit the tip to only once per month
- Thank you for reading my page and considering being a supporter!

Special short story, just for you!

I have a story in my Anam Athru series that I have planned, and when this goal is met, I will write it! This will reveal some interesting history about the dagger that you first read about in Rite of Passage.
