Many thanks! You get my upcoming books and stories in text long before they go public. You'll get something at least once a month, usually more often.
You also get access to many past rewards. Check the latest Reward Summary in the feed. https://www.patreon.com/posts/summary-of-nov-31430172
In addition, you get an RSS feed for podcast episodes I post at this level (audio updates, about once a month).
Silveo sends hugs! This is the main audio level. In addition to the rewards above, you get a weekly audio podcast episode. This will include either an audio update from me or audio books in production before they go live on Audible. com.
In addition to the rewards above, you get extra audio (podcast) episodes, in which I talk frankly about my experiences during this pandemic. In the past, I have also written a monthly short story here. I'm sure I will do so again, but right now, the Plague Journal is all I can manage. I do them as often as I feel I have something to say, so sometimes one extra a week, sometimes two or three or more extra.
My Patreon has been around since 2015, and there are many, many rewards in the feed, including a podcast with both stories and chatter, all kinds of artwork, essays and character studies, and ongoing fiction. If you want to get my stories early, this is the place. If you want backstage information about characters and worlds, this the place. If you want a peek into my personal life, this is also the place.
The Whole Story
In 2008, I started podcasting my stories as serialized audio books. I solo-read the Prophet of Panamindorah trilogy, and you can still listen to it on Podiobooks.com
I became more ambitious with my next series, The Guild of the Cowry Catchers. I produced those 5 books in fullcast audio, with forty voice actors, music and sound effects. I also commissioned illustrations for each podcast episode. My primary artist is Sarah (Rah) Cloutier
Cowry Catchers was labor-intensive, but rewarding. I got to work with talented voice actors and artists, and I built a wonderful group of fans. The project took 5 years and finished in 2014. The whole series was released for free, and you can listen to Cowry Catchers on Podiobooks.com. (Or search for it in iTunes.)
While I was doing all this, the ebook revolution hit. I learned to produce ebooks, paper books, hardback art books, and pro-level audio books for Audible.com.
My audience has been fantastic and encouraging. I have continued to work with my artist on illustrated projects. In May of 2015, we took a stab at a comic. We started with the Silveo short story "Professionals." You can also see some of the many illustrations that Rah has created for my stories in numerous styles on Tumblr and Pinterest.
In 2016, I wrote a new short story every single month for the Patreon donors. I continued to do this through the first half of 2017. Around the middle of the year, I switched gears to write something new - an erotic romance series under the pen name A. H. Lee, starting with Incubus Caged. I continue to release new fiction to the Patreon on at least a monthly basis and sometimes several times a week. I decided to bring back the monthly short stories for 2019.
I also do a weekly podcast on Patreon with an update about my life. Pro quality audio books also get published here before they go up on Audible. In addition, I release occasional free updates in text or audio, so you're welcome to follow even if you can't donate.
