I am William D. Richards, author of Aggadeh Chronicles and a few more stories that are waiting in the wings to be completed and launched. Aggadeh Chronicles is an epic fantasy series that follows Nem Aster's adventures as he travels through the Aggadeh Empire. Is he the one who will save the world? Or destroy it? The first book in the series, Nobody, is available as an ebook on all major platforms. Dragon will be released soon as an ebook, and both titles will be released in print as well.

 I also have a number of hard science fiction titles in the wings. A space opera called Privateer and another entitled The Stars Within My Grasp. I just started work on a new series, The Science of Magic, which takes a more modern look at magic through the eyes of Martin, an unwitting apprentice in the world of magic. TSOM seems to lend itself well to being serialized novellas. This means quick writing and high throughput due to shorter stories. It's episodic nature might also lend itself well to other media adaptations. For an indication of the some of the work to come, I created a page on my website listing the current manuscripts I am developing.

I decided to open a Patreon page because I found that not only was part time work not paying the bills, it was sapping time and energy away from writing the stories my readers want to read. It's time to make a change so I can put more energy into writing instead of worthless endeavor. I have too many stories I want to have written and not enough time to get it all done. 

Each dollar donated increases the time I can devote to bringing all these worlds to life for you to read!

One of the things I enjoy doing is riding motorcycles. Not to induce an adrenaline rush, but because I find it meditative and relaxing. Clearing my mind as I ride is a good way to open the mind to new story ideas. So, enjoy the above video! (The music is "Holding Hands" by Ryan Farish on his Wonderfall album.

You get the ebook as an ARC (Advance Reader Copy) before the official release Be forewarned: at the ARC stage, the editing is not complete. So there could be errors, problems, and the story could drastically change by the release version. It might be fun. It might be awful. Some people enjoy seeing a work in progress.

An autographed soft-cover print version of a book—serial numbered—when it is released. Also, your name added to the list of patrons in the back of the book, if you so wish. 


And, of course, all the above rewards as well.

After six months of angel-level patronage, a custom hand-bound, leather,  serial-numbered edition of each release made within the twelve month patronage period. Note: it takes a few weeks to make these and in no way will any two be exactly alike. Will be delivered a couple of months after the actual release.
Goals
$64 of $1,200 per month
At $1,200 per month, I can quit the part time job and devote myself fully to writing. I'd like to be able to increase my productivity and release two or more novels per year.
