I'm a writer and publisher. I love telling and sharing great stories.

I write fictional short stories, novels, and nonfiction essays. You can find my writing at VagrantMisunderstandings.com. I publish other authors' work at ShortFictionBreak.com. I've also written and published two books (which you can find here and here).  

To take my work to the next level, I need your help. While I write a lot, I only publish one polished piece a month. These pieces will vary in type. One month I might publish a collection of other authors' short stories, the next I might put out a novel, then the next I might produce an essay. If I had the resources I would devote all my time to this work and I would enlist editors and graphic designers and website gurus to help me. 

If you want to help me put more great stories in the world, I'd be honored if you would consider giving $1 (or however much you'd like) per polished piece I produce. I won't publish more than one polished piece a month. Even if I do, Patreon allows you to put monthly limits on how much you give.

Artists like me have always depended on patrons like you to support our work. Michelangelo had the Medicis, Beethoven had Archduke Rudolph, and Ernest Hemingway had Gertrude Stein. Please consider becoming a patron for my work. Your generosity will make my work possible. Let's create great stories together.

Pledge $10 or more per polished piece.
You will receive:
  • The Patrons Only email. 
  • Published work in the mail. I hate surfing the internet to find things. I want real pages in my hands to read. If you give $7 per polished work, I will mail you what I produce each month. No searching on the internet. No having to read it in your email. Each month you will get in the mail an essay, book, or collection of stories you can hold in your hand.

  • I'll write you into a story. After a short interview, I'll write you into a short story or essay. Think of it as being included in the liner notes of a band's album. You'll be able to point at it to your friends and say, "See, that's me!"
Goals
$63 of $500 per polished piece.
Building websites is an art. I need help. I'd love to pay an expert to help me take ShortFictionBreak.com to the next level. $500 per polished work will allow me to do that.
