A Few Words About Your Support:

Hey folks! As you are probably aware, I'm a science fiction writer who likes making exciting sci-fi stories. Because, let's face it, life rarely has enough laser battles, starships screaming through starry skies, or huge robots battling giant monsters.

At least, my life doesn't have nearly enough. If yours does: jealous! And slightly terrified.

So, I've decided to devote my life to writing the kinds of stories that I love reading. Adventure! Romance! Huge fleets of spaceships jumping through the vast nothingness of space to do heroic (or terrible) things!

And you can help! This writing gig is awesome when it comes to hours (whenever I wake up until whenever I fall asleep!), flexibility, and job-satisfaction... but less so when it comes to little things like "paying for food" or "having a roof over my head".

So thanks for checking out how you can help support me make awesome stories!

A Little Bit About Me:

I left behind a career in physics for science fiction because there weren’t enough laser battles or wormholes at my research and development firm. You’ll most likely find me curled up with my favourite Pratchett, rererewatching Firefly, playing boardgames with my nearest and dearest, or making "pew-pew" sounds at Infinity or WarMachine tournaments across the country. I live in Kitchener, Ontario, with my partner Andrea.

Thank you so much! Every dollar really, really helps, and allows me to spend more of my time doing the important stuff (writing!) and less time worrying about the not-important stuff.
This tier-level gives you:

- Access to Patreon-only content

- That warm, fuzzy feeling from helping an artist pursue their dreams

I may even post full short-stories here in advance of posting them on my website! It's like living in the future... you will know things no other human knows for days, maybe weeks! Through science!

It may not seem like much, but this is a huge help in my work to become a full-time author, and I can't stress how much your support means to me.

This tier gives the following benefits:
- Access to Patreon-only content
- Your name added to the list of people I thank at the end of my novels
- That warm, fuzzy feeling from helping an artist pursue their dreams

Let's be honest. How cool is that?
Very cool, that's how cool. Just like you!

- Your name added to the list of people I thank at the end of my novels
- A yearly post about my progress for that year, outlining submissions, successes, and failures, and what I'm planning for the next year

Wow. This is an enormous amount of help per month, and I am deeply, deeply grateful.

This tier gives access to the following amazingness (it's a word, I'm a writer, let's just move along folks):
- Access to Patreon-only content
- Your name added to the list of people I thank at the end of my novels
- A yearly post about my progress for that year, outlining submissions, successes, and failures, and what I'm planning for the next year
- You will be funding one blog post a year, and I'll put your name on it! New content goes out on my website weekly, and now a piece of that will have a direct thank you at the beginning of the post to let you know you're amazing
- That warm, fuzzy feeling from helping an artist pursue their dreams

I wish I could claim I'm running out of ways to describe how incredible you are for being this generous, this supportive, this noble in spirit and action. But, let's be honest, I could do this all day.

Often people ask me, "Marc, what does undying loyalty look like?" And to them I would say "About $25 per month is pretty close."

This tier gives access to all the following things:
- Access - Access to Patreon-only content

- A yearly post about my progress for that year, outlining submissions,  successes, and failures, and what I'm planning for the next year

- That warm, fuzzy feeling from helping an artist pursue their dreams


For the record, I know a really cool paper artist that does amazing things with paper (like, say... custom bookmarks). Just sayin'.
I'm just sayin'.

Thank you!

Okay, this is insane and I am at a loss for words to convey how incredible you are for supporting me this much.

Seriously. You = the best. That's some math we can all get behind.

What more can I say? You embody the word "Patron" at this level. There is a significant chunk of my time and energy that is the direct result of YOU.

And that's amazing. You're amazing. Thank you.
Goals
$28 of $500 per month
A humble, yet attainable goal for a first monthly milestone! This amount means that I can comfortably focus on my work instead of finding where the cheapest coffee, most affordable groceries, and most modestly-priced gas is located in Kitchener.
