Citizen of the Dusk Age - Thank you!

Choose your allies well. When a man places his hand in another man's hand, as in the common ritual of shaking hands or clasping wrists, he does not merely show that he does not have a weapon -- he places his very life in the other's care.
- From Gristen's fourth address to the adepts.


Thank you for your support! Plus, with this tier and above, you'll get access to the patron feed and things like that.

Citizen of the Silver Age

With the rebirth of mortality, came the return of suffering. Yet the Panacaea flowed freely, a gift for all, a sweet soothe for any pain.

Thank you, and thank you again!

Citizen of the Golden Age

The Golden Age was an era of great privilege for mortals, an era when all had the gift of immortality and unrelenting plenty, when by all standards heaven had been brought to the world, but the Antefulmenes desired more, still...

For a contribution of 5$ and up, I will write your username on one of the thumbtacks I use with my organizational corkboards, so your support shall be seen there forever more!

(Disclaimer: I have atrocious writing, the thumbtacks are teeny, so I may have to shorten it. If you like I will just use your initials, to keep you anonymous!)

About

Hi! I'm Malcolm F. Cross, a writer, and you probably know about my writing if you're here. If not, you can check out my webpage here, and on the sidebar on the right there's a list of my publications. The major one is Dog Country, my debut novel.

If you're not familiar with Patreon, here's a video explaining a little about the platform. The short version is, this isn't about me selling you stuff. This is about me finding a way to share what I'm already trying to do with you, and for you to help keep me going.

So. What's the deal?

Boy howdy. Those mental health problems, right? Since I recorded the video above (years ago, now) I’ve had a breakdown, then I managed to get a lot of help from professionals, and now the depression’s under control enough I’m starting to work again. Which means I’m asking for support from fans and friends.

So where does Patreon come in? Primarily, this is just about being nice and supporting me so I can focus on the art of writing, not the business. Right now (Feb 2020) I’m about two months into a space opera with the working title ‘Legacy of a Silver Age’. Maybe you'd like to join in on the adventure of seeing just what I manage to achieve with it?

As for what you get out of it, beyond supporting one of your favourite writers, there are a few small things - take a look at the tiers and rewards, and the various public posts, but be aware that there isn’t anything super reliable going on rewards-wise other than getting to a peek over my shoulder at my writing process every so often, and, of course, my thanks for your support.

(Right now the reward tiers are themed around my current effort, a space opera novel with the working title, Legacy of a Silver Age.)

Remember my novel Dog Country? Want to see it in print? Get us to this point, and this is how it’ll happen. If we get here, you’ll be able to follow along month by month as I hire an editor, look at getting together a new cover, and in general go through the tango of spending money to get the book ready to be re-launched in print, instead of struggling through it on my own like the first time.
