Thank you for checking me out on Patreon. I’m sure you have one or two questions about my page such as ...

JUST WHO THE HELL ARE YOU???


That’s a very good question. Unless you’ve come here from my website, or a link  on social media. In which case, I suggest you change your meds.

I’m a writer of hideous and horrible things. The type of fiction your parents warned you about, terrible tales that scandalise sermon writers and bring hot sweats to Sunday school teachers. I’m talking about the type of books that make you feel good in all the worst ways and bad in all the best. Work that's highly imaginative and often thought provoking.

I write novels, graphic novels and comics. As you’ve probably guessed, I’m best known for horror fiction, but I’ve also published science fiction, fantasy, many children’s books and a WWII spy thriller.  

I’ve even won a few awards including a ‘This Is Horror Award’ for my short story collection Dead Air, an ERA award for my series of educational graphic novels Battle Cries and a Fringe First at the Edingburgh Festival.

Plus I blog, run a YouTube channel and host a monthly webcomic on my website.


SO WHY ARE YOU ON PATREON THEN?


Another good question, you do like to put me on the spot don’t you.

There are two reasons really. The first is that I’m tired of whoring myself out.

In order to make any kind of income as a writer, I have to do a lot of hack work. While I’m proud of the commissions, and the work for hire writing I do, it’s not the reason I quit my day job. It’s not the kind of legacy I want to leave behind, and it’s not the work I always dreamed of writing.

However, I also have a wife, two daughters and a very hungry overdraft to feed. That’s why I need your input. 

FAIR ENOUGH, AND THE SECOND REASON IS ...?


Okay, okay, I’m just getting to that. The second reason is that I want to make a deeper connection with everyone who reads my work. Social media allows us to interact, but there’s no central hub where we can build a really solid relationship.

That’s what I want to do on Patreon. I want to build a personal relationship with you. The sort of relationship that will provide us both with encouragement, support and fine reading material, for years to come. All the rewards I’m offering are designed to do just that. Please take a moment to check them out and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear from everyone who stops by this page. Why not drop me a line to let me know what you think of this page, my unspeakable fiction or my startling resemblance to Frodo Baggins.

Thanks for reading this far and please do get in touch.

This will make such a difference to me. It will allow me to cover all my costs for the website, the webcomic and the other admin and promotional costs that come with making a living from writing. It will be a great start to the campaign and you will have helped me get that little bit closer to complete independence.
