About Chris Lester

Hi! I'm Chris Lester. From 2007 to 2011 I produced The Metamor City Podcast, a Parsec Award-winning audio fiction series that captured the imaginations of tens of thousands of listeners across six continents. People raved about Metamor City for its vividly-imagined world of high magic and high technology, a wide cast of compelling characters, and first-rate production values.

In May 2015 I started a new podcast project, The Raven and the Writing Desk. In this weekly show I share the fiction that I've been working on, either a short story or a piece of a longer work. I also keep you up-to-date on my creative progress, sharing Weekly Writing Reports and responding listener feedback. The show has been running uninterrupted for more than two and a half years now, and you can play a part in keeping it going!

As a patron of my campaign, you'll be helping me stay focused on my art. When writing and podcasting helps me pay the bills, it means I can spend more time on writing and podcasting, instead of picking up overtime at work or taking a second job. Your support also makes it possible for me to make appearances at conventions, where I can meet with fans and introduce new people to my work.

But that's not all! In addition to helping me keep the podcast coming, as a patron you can get special bonus features: copies of my e-books, behind-the-scenes author commentaries, previews of any new cover art and interior illustrations that I commission, even limited-edition autographed copies of the books you helped me create. As you help me bring my stories to market, you'll get access to that finished content before anyone else.

Thank you so much for joining me on this journey. I've got worlds full of stories left to tell -- and with your help, I'll get to keep telling them!

I'll commission a full-color illustration for one of my stories. Patrons will get to see the full illustration; non-patrons will get a smaller preview image.
