I love elves!

And dwarves, and dragons, and a whole heap of other great fantasy creatures and races.

I also really like eating.

I've set up this Patreon so I can hopefully spend time writing about elves and dragons, and also get to eat. Mostly because one isn't likely to happen without the other.

I've been writing for over a decade and I've been a hybrid author for a significant chunk of that time, but royalties are inherently unpredictable. They also don't always cover editing fees and cover design costs when I spend 90% of my time writing and creating and only 10% finding new and creative ways to flog books to people who don't yet realise they want to buy them, read them, and then cry because the story is over and they're not ready to come back to this normal world yet.

So this is where Patreon comes in. I'd love to be able to spend more time writing, and less time pushing my books in dubious ways. My family would undoubtedly also appreciate me having a steadier income.

I'll post a chapter of a current fantasy WIP, either the Winter series, or my Guild of the Eternal Flame series once per week.

I also hope to put together the game guides for table top gamers to play along with the Guild of the Eternal Flame as I progress through the series.
