Hello there!

Who am I?

I've always enjoyed writing. A great many years ago, I found myself part of a little community called Creepypasta, before it became the ubiquitous horror trope we all know today. While there, I wrote a story called "Psychosis," which later spread across the Internet, finding its way into numerous video adaptations.

Four years ago, I found a budding horror community called NoSleep, on Reddit. The unique required format of story submissions there intrigued me, and I began contributing. I was surprised to find that some people already knew who I was - because of Psychosis - and I realized I'd found the resettled remnants of the defunct Creepypasta community.

Now, NoSleep is a public default subreddit on Reddit, and has reached over three million subscribers. In that time, I've often pushed the boundaries of the strict format, and I've built an ongoing style that offers a unique blend of terrifying ideas and grounded realities that involve realistic characters. I would describe my work as a fusion of horror and science fiction specifically because I don't believe horror can truly reach our emotional core unless the world surrounding it makes sense. The science and realism makes the rest that much sweeter.

The one thing I promise, above all, is that my stories will never be cliche. I'm an avid horror fan myself; I've read them all, and I want new experiences just like you do.

My dream would be to produce fresh new horror content on a permanent, full-time basis. That's what this Patreon is about - for the price of a cup of coffee, you can help me bring you cutting-edge horror and science fiction.

What will I do with your money?

Currently, I run my own e-publishing company. For many years, I've worked with other authors to edit, format, publish, and market their work. As I began compiling more self-written content, I used those skills to create my own books, exactly like the ones I'd created for other people. This is my proven track record for you - I'm already doing it, it's already my passion, but I want to do it full-time.

I want to bring fresh content and professional books to you on a regular basis, rather than whenever my scant free time allows.

The support given through this Patreon will first go toward shifting my time more fully into writing. Once I have enough time and money to write full-time, the rest will go toward sweet upgrades and paying the fantastically talented people I partner with. For example, I feel that I truly struck gold with the covers from the art talents at Miller Creative Consulting. I think the difference between my self-made covers and their fantastic designs speaks for itself - and they have contributed these covers with their own free time, purely because they believe in what we are doing here. The same is true for a great many writers, artists, and editors I work with.

The Internet is entering a new era - one in which you get to decide what content gets created. This is exactly how that happens. With your support, we can produce ever-better content specifically for you! The ebooks I produce will always continue to be available for free, and print versions will also be available for those who want hard copies in their homes.

Thank you for your support!

Guest appearance in my stories



If you submit a brief bio, I'll base a character in my stories after you. While I can't guarantee your twin won't meet a grisly fate, you'll still be immortalized forever in text form! If you're not text-inclined, I can also nab the details of your character and his or her challenges in a Skype chat.

Goals
$160 of $250 per month
I'll be able to shift my work focus a bit to ensure I publish a regular number of stories each month. Best guess is, at minimum, four stories per month, probably at the same day and time each week.
