Short VersionI'm the author of The Guild of the Cowry Catchers, The Prophet of Panamindorah, Hunters Unlucky, and The Eve and Malachi books. I also write sexier stories under the pen name A. H. Lee, including the Incubus Series.
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 also do a weekly podcast on Patreon with an update about my life and sometimes a live reading of some of my fiction. I typically release one free episode each month, along with some free text posts to keep people in the loop, so you're welcome to follow even if you can't donate.
