For those of you who know me and my work, I just want to say Thank You. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are the reason I have had any success at all, and you help me to pay my bills so I can write more books.
For those of you who don't know me, I've been a writer all my life. It has taken me a long time, but I've reached the level of skill where I get exceptional reviews, and my fans can't wait for more, but I barely have time to write. I just pray for the time and freedom to pursue my art with the years that I have left. I have a nearly-grown son and am married, but my wife is ill and cannot contribute much. Your kind monthly donation can see me to my goal of writing for a living, and in exchange you will get first looks at the incredible sci-fi that I produce! I'll also populate my worlds with a tapestry of characters using your names, towns, and suggestions as time goes by. Please help my dream come true? Thank you for taking the time to look at my story and I hope to get to know you.

You have now risen through the ranks to a position of responsibility, so your additional duties include access to monthly live voice/video hangouts, and you will earn a bonus of one Fae, handmade by Spinner's End Studio, which will accrue on your anniversary. Should you continue for additional years past the first you will earn bonuses of clothing and accessories for your Fae friend. All Fae will also be listed and pictured on our website, in the Fae Hall of Fame. They may make it into a speaking role in a book at some point too.

At this level I should be able to spend more time writing and less time doing odd jobs, so that I can bring you more good books!
