Technically, you could say I’m self-employed, but really, I work for you, the reader and the patron. Your support helps me maintain the quality of work without having to depend so much on churning out content at too rapid a pace. Because you can do it right, or you can do it fast, but you can rarely do both. More than anything, I want to do right by my readers. Your generous support will help me continue to do that.

Furthermore, your support helps me support other creative folks who help take self-publishing to the next level. Every book I write has to go to an editor, and every book needs a cover. Getting a good cover and solid editing isn't cheap, and your support will help me maintain the high standard of quality you've come to expect in my books so far.

As a writer, I also sell books at conventions. For the first year or so that I’ve been doing this full time, my range for cons has been limited to small to mid-sized events in the Midwest. But recently, I’ve been able to attend a couple of larger events on the East and West coasts. It has given me the opportunity to meet current fans and make new ones, folks I would never have had the pleasure of getting to know otherwise. Your support will also help me extend my reach for conventions, not only geographically, but also in terms of size. With any luck, I’ll be able to come to a convention near you!

Not only will you get a coveted spot on my Patreon Wall Of Fame, I will also follow you on Twitter and Facebook and give you a shout out of thanks for your support. (And if we're friends on Facebook, I'll even write on your wall on your birthday.)

Okay, now we're starting to get into the big money. With this, in addition to all of the above, you will get access to my Patreon paid posts, which will detail the process and progress in each book as it goes.

Man, now I'm going to have to cough up some serious access. Obviously, stalking you on...I mean, following you obsessively on Twitter and Facebook, putting your name on my website AND giving you access to my Patreon posts isn't enough. You have excellent taste and the money to back it up, so I'm going to have to pull out some extra cool stuff. You'll get early access to snippets and chapter posts. As  Wizard level Patreon partners, you will get more with these posts than the general public, like entire chapters, instead of part of one.

So, my humble thanks is obviously poor repayment for this level of support. Fortunately, I have more than that to offer.

At this level, you will receive a signed copy of each book, made out to you personally, with each release. You've earned it.

You're serious about this, aren't you? Time to really up the game. 

At this level, you will receive a PROOF copy, signed by me and made out to you in loving detail before the main copies are approved. (Which means if there are any mistakes I made, you get to see them). In addition, I will add you as a character, by name and description in one book.

Okay, this is where the joking stops.

At this level, you will get everything from the previous levels, PLUS a digital early release ARC and your name in the acknowledgements of every book I put out. But that isn't all.

If you believe in my work THIS hard, then YOU are going to be immortalized as a recurring character in a series.

Okay, NOW you've done it.

See all that up there? Yeah, you still get that. But I will also introduce a major, recurring character, named after you and matching your description, in a series. Hero or villain, your choice, but rest assured, they will be memorable and amazing. Because, well, at this level of patronage, YOU are amazing.
Goals
$9 of $500 per month
If I can reach $500 per month, I will be able to cover the basic costs in self-publishing, mainly editing and covers. Help me support other creatives who keep this growing part of the industry alive and viable!
