The Home for Wayward Fictions

These days, I'm best known (in a small but loyal fashion) as a novelist.  But I originally started as a short fiction writers.  Mostly in horror, but also SF, fantasy, and even romance and (gasp) mainstream fiction.  

But despite there being a great deal of story-material lurking in the storeroom I laughably call a brain, I'm terrible at writing without a deadline. 

So here it is, your chance to encourage me to create more, and along the way see what happens in the dark corners of my mind when I haven’t had quite enough sleep, and things get strange….

And yes, some of those stories will be part of the larger Cosa Nostradamus universe (Retrievers, PSI, Sylvan Investigations, and previously undisclosed corners).

There will be monthly stories, all along the genre-scape.  NSFW rants (about everything BUT politics). First Look at new covers!  Novel excerpts, discussions of What The Fuck is Writing?, and looks into the Files of Shame (aka abandoned stories).  Experimental flash fiction.  The occasional Q&A sessions.  And of course, the year-end roundup in ebook format of the monthly stories, just in time for you to gift them as holiday presents.... (or keep them for yourself).

Plus, more, as it randomly appears.

And in addition to all that, you'll also be sponsoring my beloved but medically-expensive cats (aka "the ones more internet-famous than I am), since Patreon earnings go toward helping pay for the ever-increasing medical costs for my beloved but diabetic CatofSize (and his asthmatic younger brother the Kitten of Thursday).  Because apparently I'm a sucker for the animals with ongoing medical needs....

Access to the monthly Rant (a NSFW examination of (non-political) topics that made me go "ok no wait back up and WTF?" that month.  Topics will vary widely.)

Plus, the occasional "What the Fuck is Writing?" essay taking on famous writers' quotes about writing.


And! The Occasional Q&A (depending on the # of Qs I get to A in any particular month)
