Anything worth reading shouldn't need a price tag. Because of that, I've decided to offer everything I've written or will write for free. You won't even find ads on my blogs. As one of my readers, you get to decide what my words are worth to you. As a patron, you don't only get to read my work, but because no work is ever truly complete, you also get to be a part of my writing experience. If you're a fledgling writer, you may find you will benefit from seeing the process, in action. Please join me on my trip as I continue to share my words with the world.
