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 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 my Patreon-only posts, where I will ponder stuff, help you be in the loop for what I'm working on (and estimated completion dates), and give you a little glimpse behind the curtain. Fun!

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!

In addition to the "see stuff sooner than everyone else sees it" bonus you get, this level will also include a once-monthly "Q&A" post here on Patreon.

I'll ask for questions. I'll make a list of 10 good ones, and I'll either do a video or written response to those questions! You get to submit questions and see the answers! How cool is that?

Very cool, that's how cool.

Every month I will post up a poll for the topic or style of a short story for the next month.

You want me to write more cyber-crime thrillers? Or perhaps you're all about the space opera? Is your life in dire need of more cyborgs punching things? Your vote will help decide at least one short story for the next month! And then, when it goes up for early publication to that secret website-thingy I mentioned before... you even get to read it before the masses!

Wow. This is an enormous amount of help per month, and I am deeply, deeply grateful. In addition to all the previous stuff I already said you'd get, you will have your name listed in the credits of any and all self-published books! Your name, forever immortalized as a human responsible for helping sci-fi reach a broader audience.

(Let's keep the names clean, please and thank ya!)

You ever think to yourself "Man, I would love to have that great writer's signature on this thing I have... but how do I do that?"

Well, my friend, this is the reward level for you. In addition to everything else, you can ship me something and I will sign it and ship it back (you cover shipping costs to and from). Plus all the other awesome stuff you get from the previous support levels! Including my undying gratitude, which as I believe I mentioned... is awesome.

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.

Sponsors at this level will be given the option to suggest a name for me to insert into a short story (or, hey, maybe a novel) once a year. And I will do my damnest to include whatever name you send me (keep it clean, obviously).
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.
