I've been reading Science-Fiction and Fantasy for my entire literate life. I started with the Forgotten Realms in early elementary school, and never looked back. I published my first book review in 2011 and since then have published reviews of nearly 100 novels, as well as several games, films and other SFF media. The first time I saw review text I had written, on a real book, in a real book store, I cried. 

In my life I've worked in 4 different bookstores, including one I opened and ran myself, and it has been so wonderful to make a career about sharing my enthusiasm for speculative fiction. The only feeling more satisfying than reading a really excellent book is knowing you might be able to help other people find it and enjoy it as well. 

By supporting this Patreon you are helping to offset the cost of books, allowing me to pick up the newest titles in hardcover for more timely and helpful review content. You're also helping cover the costs of freeing up the time to dedicate to sharing my love of this medium with people just like yourself who benefit from recommendations and suggestions. 

To my current and potential future patrons I say thank you. Thank you for contributing to my passion, and for helping me to share that passion with you.

At $15 dollars per review you are making my passion for reading and reviewing speculative fiction closer to cost-neutral. I can buy mass-market paperback novels for the specific purpose of reviews, and patrons can start voting on titles to review. I'm really doing it!
