About James Wylder


I'm an author, poet, and playwright, best known for my Doctor Who Poetry book An Eloquence of Time and Space and my sci-fi novel 10,000 Dawns. I've also written and hosted a live show called Tales by the Blue Light at the Blue Box Cafe in Elgin, Illinois. I've been featured on the New York Daily News book blog and in the Elkhart Truth newspaper. I've toured my writing in 2 countries, 10 states, and 23 cities.

I write a lot. Many of my friends tell me I "write like I'm running out of time," and it's what I've always wanted to do. Always. I feel incomplete and unfulfilled when I'm not creating new things, and I want to make as much as I can, as good as I can make it. 

This Patreon will support creating new projects, stories, poems, and even podcasts! By backing you'll get exclusive fiction and poetry, plus support the other books I'm working on on the side as well! Every month you'll get new fiction, plus access to every story and poem created by this Patreon.

I tour a lot to sell my books and make money, but trying to live a life and actually make my student loan payments is extremely difficult, especially with how writing income can vary dramatically from month to month. With this Patreon, I hope to be able to spend more time creating new works and writing.

I'm a graduate of Hanover College class of '12, with a degree in English (creative writing minor). I was born in Elkhart, Indiana, where live, though I spent a lot of time living in Indianapolis, Indiana, a city that I love.


Every person who has read or seen my work, told a friend about it, or backed this Patreon has helped bring me to this point. I can't wait to bring you more stories. Let's do this.
$183.79 of $300 per month
If we reach $300 per month, I will have a reliable enough writing income that I can spend more time writing and less time touring. At this level, all backers can expect me to complete another full book every year.
