Who am I?

Oh boy, I have to write about myself now?  Um, let's see...  I'm a story addict and have been most of my life.  Now I write urban fantasy novels and short stories.  I write quickly but edit fairly slowly, so I average about 4 books a year, but I plan to start putting out short stories as well.

What is all this supporting?

Well, aside from the usual helping me keep the lights on and feed my family, writing is a surprisingly expensive endeavor.   There's the popular image of the author, hunched over a desk all alone, painstakingly pouring words onto the page.  Well, that is part of it, but not the end of it by any stretch.  Once I have my rough draft done I have to get critiques, edits, a good quality book cover... all of these things can cost quite a bit of money.  In order to bring you my stories, I have to pay my editors and artist for their work.  It's only fair.

What's in it for you?

You mean besides the warm satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the arts?  Well, anyone supporting me above the $3 level gets advance reading material!  You'll get an inside peek at my works-in-progress and get to read unedited chapters of the novel I'm working on, and will, as a result, have advance knowledge of any upcoming releases! At the $5 level you also get a short story every month, and at the $10 level you'll get each of my novels before anyone else gets it, you sneaky pre-launch swag-grabber!  Short stories and novels will be distributed through BookFunnel, so I promise you won't have to rely on me for tech support.  Trust me, you're really glad of that.

You have my undying gratitude, a special mention on my website's patrons page, and access to all the fun photos that I'll post here of my "adventures" in writing, lunatic wrangling, and general tomfoolery.  Mostly though, I'll keep you up to date on novel progress every week.

all of the above, and at least one chapter-in-progress from the  next novel. 
Local cafe cuppa
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
all of the above, a mention in the back of my next book, and early access to my short stories, one a month barring a terrible caffeine shortage!  (must be an active patron at the time the book gets formatted, usually a month before release.)
Fancypants espresso drink
$10 or more per month 1 patron
all of the above, a mention in the back of my next book, and a copy of my novel, a week before release!
Goals
$9 of $200 per month
I will post not one, but TWO chapters a month of my novel-in-progress, or if I'm not that far yet, a sneak peek at my outline-in-process and the first chapter.  Also, patrons at the $5 tier and up will get a copy of the final, fully formatted short story collection!
