Josh Fredman is creating The Curious Tale

patrons

$40
per week
The Curious Tale is a collection of stories that explore the nature of power and the wonder of living and dying. Here in the lush world of Relance you will find journeys of persuasion, and acts of wild creation, all told with an aggressive love of language that doesn't make for the easiest reading.

There are so many pressures in life. Artists have always had the special privilege of bringing inspiration and succor to the beleaguered, but we can't do it if we don't make a living of our own. By supporting me in my art, I can spend more time and energy on it, and you can have the satisfaction of being a patron of the arts.

Learn more at CuriousTale.org, where you can find my weekly features, published books, and more. You can also check out my personal Live Journal, The Sinistral.

This introductory support tier costs just $5 a month, and is great for poorer folks (like yours truly) who want to make a meaningful gesture but can't afford more. For the price of a sandwich per month you'll be helping an independent artist to bring stories to the world. And, hey...that's not nothin'. Plus, when I turn around and spend that money on a sandwich for myself, I might just be able to survive till next month! We could get a good thing going here.

It's hard to ask an artist to put a value on their own work, and crowdfunding is still relatively new. Nonetheless, this is my attempt at a recommendation. If you enjoy my work, and you're excited to read more, and if you can spare the money, this is a great tier at which to show your support.

Supporting me at this tier is a serious commitment and a flattering vote of confidence. If you see something special in my work, and have the money to spare, you can single-handedly make a huge difference in my ability to earn a full-time living on The Curious Tale. I hope you'll play a part in building up the nascent fanbase with me, and be in touch with me to give me the artistic feedback I so ardently crave as I hone my early works.

Pledging over $100 a month to me is not an option for just anyone. It's for those who have succeeded in life financially and want to spread the gifts of opportunity to aspiring artists and creators like myself. If you admire my work and share in my passion for it, then this kind of support is a way for you to do the most meaningful good of all: getting my income to the point where I can actually make a living from this, which will allow me to commission other artists to work with me on embellishments like visual art, making The Curious Tale that much better, and spreading opportunity even farther. Also, there's an actual, tangible award in this tier: Support me at this level and I'll do a creative special for you, once a year, on your birthday. We can work out the details.
Goals
$40 of $50 per week
I'll be able to begin saving money to commission art for the Curious Tale website.
