Hello, and welcome to my Patreon page! I am AC Cobble, author of the Benjamin Ashwood series and hopefully many more stories to come.

This page is dedicated to my fans. I built it as a way to increase your connection to my stories and open up opportunities for people to get involved. Through Patreon, I offer exclusive access, pre-publication content, your questions answered, and chances to steer the direction of what I write!

Benjamin Ashwood is inspired by classic, epic fantasy - the stuff I grew up reading and still love. It starts, as they all do, when a young man is forced by unexpected circumstances to leave his small village with mysterious strangers. He embarks on an epic journey that is just the beginning of his story. Along the way, he learns about himself, sees the darkness that threatens his world, and finds out the ruling powers are doing nothing to address the looming danger. Ben tries to rise to the challenge and save the world, but in this story - like life, there are no chosen ones. Success isn't assured, and catastrophe is guaranteed if Ben fails. Will he be able to achieve the necessary skill and gain the right allies to save the world?

Benjamin Ashwood Books 1-4 are available in digital, print, and audio. Book 5 is available in digital and print with audio coming Sept 2018. The final volume in this story arc, Book 6, is slated for Dec 2018. I also have short stories, a boxset, and recently released a German edition of Book 1. Lots of activity. Luckily, you've come to the best place to stay informed ahead of everyone else!

The Benjamin Ashwood books allowed me to quit a job I loved and are now the sole income for my family. That is still weird to type... So far, it's been great. It's also scary. I'm at the mercy of retailers and other partners which I have little control over. By supporting me through Patreon, you help diversify my income from writing. You can give me - and my wife - some peace of mind that we can continue feeding our children through my writing. When that's achieved, I don't have to worry about anything else, and the words flow freely.

So, sign up! Find out what's going on right now with Benjamin Ashwood. Even better, find out what comes next.

If I've sold you on a book, you can find the first one on Amazon HERE.

Happy reading!
