WRITING BOOKS IS HARD!
It is. It really, really is. Especially with all this other work I do. Everybody thinks they have a book in them. The vast majority of us won't ever actually sit down and do the work... I'm sure I don't need to map out the endless years of honing the skill and talent of the craft of writing; you, my dear Patrons, know better than to think that just because a person can put words in a sentence that they are a writer - someone who can draw a stick figure isn't automatically an artist, right? Then there's all the research, and the actual time-intensive slog of writing and wordcount, editing it down to readable, reasonable content, and even the marketing of each and every book us writers have to do these days. It's intense, truly.

If you like my books though, and want to support me so I can write more of them (ok, so it's hard, did I mention how HARD it is to write a book - but it's also a good thing for me to do, I know this), you can support me as an author by choosing this reward. There's been like *counts* 10 other reward options by now, with some pretty awesome swag, so I guess I don't need to go through everything else you'll get. If you've read through to this point, you're pretty into the whole idea of connecting to Ireland, so you know what your options are here. $500 per month is a lot of money for one person to give each month. But if you've got it spare, there's definitely worse things you could be doing with it. Do you REALLY need an underground aquarium beneath a living room floor made of glass? Do you? What if that shit breaks?!

Supporting me writing my next book, or books, gets you all of the other Patreon Prizes each month, plus you get raved about in the acknowledgments section of each new book, and of course you get a personalised, pre-release, signed copy of all forthcoming print books I write while you're a Patron. And you don't have to worry about falling through your living room floor and drowning in that aquarium. You're welcome. This Reward is limited to 2 Patrons only, or my publishers will have a hissy fit about me giving away books before the official release date.
