Hello!  I'm an author and publisher of science fiction and fantasy.  I have several series in the works, and so far have published four books and an omnibus for The Ravencrest Chronicles, a series of nautical-themed dark flintlock fantasy; Night Shift, the first book of a cyberpunk crime thriller trilogy; and Warriors of Understone, the first book in a heroic fantasy series featuring dwarves! I also am an owner-operator of Kyanite Publishing, working to bring other indie voices out into the world - and am the Editor-in-Chief of The Kyanite Press.


The internet has given us exciting opportunities to be able to create content as artists without going through the traditional avenues of Hollywood, television studios, or book publishers.  Creating content independently comes at a cost without the financial backing of these long-established organizations.  I have been lucky to join with other like-minded individuals to found Kyanite Publishing, but even an author signed with a major publisher still has a lot of personal expenses. Book tours, advertising, office supplies, and groceries!  With a little help, I hope to get the exposure to get my work into the hands of the readers who I know are out there, and who I feel will love what I am creating.


I thought you'd never ask.  I don't expect a handout!  I plan to provide a LOT of exclusive content, so there will be returns for your investment.  Many may feel that patronage of the arts is a reward in itself, but I plan to give you more than that!  I want to make this a collaborative community, as well, where we work together to achieve common goals around the art I am producing.  As I write these books, I want to share the work as it happens and get feedback to make what I write the best it could possibly be.  Take a look at the rewards available.  Every patron will be part of the community, but to make sure that everybody is getting value those who pledge more will have more access to exclusive content and rewards.  



I also thought we should have some fun with this, so I patterned the reward tiers as ranks in an order of knights.  Don't think that one is more important than the other, though!  Each and every member of the community plays a vital role in working together to achieve our goals.

Thank you for joining me on this wonderful journey, and I look forward to talking to you soon!
