I've been a full-time writer since 1979.  For about thirty years I earned a decent living at it.  Of late, though, the publishing business has changed radically, and it's gotten much harder to make money; the average writer's income has dropped significantly.

I may not be an average writer, I'm not a good judge of that, but my income has dropped, too.  I'd like to slow, or ideally reverse, that trend.  I know I have some very supportive fans, so I thought I'd see if I could maybe offer them something in exchange for turning that emotional support into direct financial support.

Over the years I've accumulated a lot of unpublished stuff -- mostly fragments, but a couple of short stories and one short novel.  I also have a lot of work that's been published, but is now very hard to find.  And I've been thinking about maybe writing a few essays.

I'll post some of this stuff for my Patrons.  And the feedback (and financial support) may also help me decide what to concentrate on in finishing and publishing stories elsewhere. 

I'll also try to give patrons first dibs on the stuff that gets published elsewhere.

It's an experiment.  Let's see how it goes.
