Tiers
Scenes only, please
$1 or more per creation
Each scene when created and polished.

Maximum of two scenes per month.

Don't sweat it - cap contributions if you need to.

Scenes, plus behind the scenes
$1 or more per creation
Each scene when created and polished, plus extra posts.

Each ~2k words scene has 10-50k words of background material, most of it original. If there is a market for it, I'll post chunks - and let readers help me figure out the best clips.

Maximum of two scenes + two posts per month.

Don't sweat it - cap contributions if you need to.

(Texture for the cover of PURGATORY, not NETHERWORLD.)

Workspace extract
$20 or more per creation
Pick a scene, and I'll email you a pdf of the working files for that scene which will show you how it's constructed.

Lightly edited to remove what I had for lunch, etc.

Possibly useful for writers interested in the process part of writing (Where do you get your ideas from?). 

May contain a bit of swearing - has my honest opinions, written to myself. Typically 10-100 times longer than the scene.

Print version of Pride's Children: NETHERWORLD, autographed
$50 or more per creation
OR LESS

Depending on shipping cost to you, printing cost to me, and taking into account half of your support.

I'll ship it before the print version is available on Amazon (though I don't control worldwide shipping, and can't guarantee when it will ARRIVE), but after your payment has cleared and can't be rescinded.

Charged only once the book is finished, and I have approved Createspace's print version.


Dramatica for novelists
$100 or more per creation
Want to see how I used Dramatica for Book 1, or possibly how it is planned for Book 2? I'll email you the actual (mostly followed) Dramatica Story Expert (DSE) file for the book of your choice.

Don't get this unless you want to see exactly why, say, "Andrew represents the basic motivations of "Logic" -- a rational sense of how things are related."

Lots more detail in every appreciation - but not useful to anyone who doesn't plot novels with Dramatica.

Fifteen minutes of my life via Skype (possibly Facetime)
$300 or more per creation
15 minutes of my time to answer any reasonable questions; I will be rested and coherent. Mutual convenience. Skype, possibly Facetime.

Straight cost to me of the small amount of usable ceative time I have every day of my life.

Misuse will get you blocked. And there may be no writing that day - use wisely.

Month AFTER the payment CLEARS.

I'll be surprised to see many patrons use this tier.
