Stories can take us to places we've never even dreamed. My earliest memories involve being read stories at bedtime and developing a love of telling my own stories before I even started school. In my 30 years I've never stopped wanting to craft worlds for people all around the world to visit. Right here, you can be a part of that journey! With your support here I can hone my craft and you'll get to see exclusive works not available anywhere else until the yearly compilation comes out the following year. You'll get early access and discounts to that as well, along with signed copies at upper levels of support. As our journey goes on, I'll strive to provide fun rewards that both challenge me and make you feel included in all of this! While the rewards vary by tier, to me any amount of support is welcome and generous and I am grateful to you every day as you help me reach my dreams!
Tiers
Thank you!
$3 or more per month 0 patrons

With $3 you can buy...well, I'm not sure what you can buy with $3. What I'm sure of is that you chose to support me with that $3 and you're amazing for doing so! You'll get discounts for any physical/digital releases and you'll have the option to be listed in a section where I'll thank each and every person supporting me here! You'll also get to see short selections from the monthly short story completed in the previous month. And chances are you'll see cat pictures. I take lots of them =)

Weekly Poetry
$5 or more per month 1 patron

Every week I'll post a poem of some sort. For now I'll be focusing on haiku but as things get going I'll branch out. And YOU will have exclusive access to it!


*Includes all lower tiers.

Weekly Poem - Collaboration Edition
$10 or more per month 0 patrons

Stepping it up a little? Fantastic! This tier gets you not only the ability to view the poems, but also to participate. At the end of each month I'll post a poll with a series of words. Everyone in this tier votes and I will turn each of the top 4 into a poem. That means you'll get two poems each week!


 *Includes all lower tiers.

Weekly Poetry - Collector's Edition
$20 or more per month 0 patrons

This tier is going to be fun! Not only do you get the benefits of the lower tiers, but you also get early access to the printed and ebook editions of the year's poetry. In addition, I will offer a special discount for both versions as my thanks for your wonderful support! (See post for full details.)


 *Includes all lower tiers.

Monthly Prose
$25 or more per month 0 patrons

Getting into the big leagues now! In addition to the two weekly poems, you'll have access to a Patreon exclusive short story. I'll be challenging myself and you'll get to see the results each month. Little work-in-progress teasers will be released throughout the month to get you excited for the finished product!

 

*Includes all lower tiers, EXCEPT: 

  • Weekly Poetry - Collector's Edition. 
Monthly Prose - Collaborator's Edition
$35 or more per month 0 patrons

So now you want to collaborate on the short story too? I'm in! You'll get to vote on an overall theme for me to write the month's story on. In addition, you'll get a "twist" vote halfway through the month. This will serve as an additional challenge to me because I won't know what it is until you vote. The suspense!


 *Includes all lower tiers, EXCEPT: 

  • Weekly Poetry - Collector's Edition. 
The Book was Better
$50 or more per month 0 patrons

This is wonderful! Not only are you seeing and contributing you the monthly short story, but now you're getting early access to the printed and ebooks versions of all 12 stories from the year! You'll also get a special discount only available to this level and higher! (See post for full details.)

Going a step even higher than The Big One? I don't know what to say! This tier is going to be really personal. On top of everything else, you will get to be in the monthly short story! You'll receive a form to give me some information and you'll be in the finished version. I think this will be a lot of fun for me and you!

Maximum Altitude!
$200 or more per month 0 of 3 patrons

You're really going all out and I can't thank you enough! This time around you'll get to be in the story as a character of some kind of importance! Perhaps you make a breakthrough discovery, or provide an essential transport, or have in your possession an important object. You'll receive a form to help me develop your character and you'll get to see yourself in the finished version. I hope you're excited because I certainly am!

Goals
$5 of $500 per month
Astonished. Grateful. Humbled.
These are some of the words to describe how I'll feel if we reach this goal. I'll be able to start building up a savings and preparing for future endeavors. You truly have no idea how even this much will be easing some of the weight on my shoulders.
