patrons


Greetings! I'm so excited you took a moment to visit my Patreon page. I have so many stories I want to tell and I hope you will become a part of making that happen.

If you don't know much about me yet, my name is Charlie, and I write scifi, fantasy, and secondary world wuxia. My fiction tends to be a bit weird with a focus on characters and worlds I can't find elsewhere. Many of my characters are LGBTQ+, and I strive to tell stories balancing personal stakes and epic adventure. You may be familiar with my scifi books: Liquid Sky, Fates' Harrow, or Shine Like Thunder. Or you may have read my dark urban fantasy: Wand and Weaver: The Chain. I also do a daily podcast- Project: Shadow. What I am working on now is something new, The Ash Dancer.

I call my fans the Riders of the House of the Blue Dragon, because they joined me on this journey. Okay, it's mainly because I love Wuxia, and I love the idea of being part of a Jiang Hu sect. Sputters the Blue Dragon has been in my logo for twenty years, so it seems only proper to name the House after him. Yeah, it's a bit corny but if we can't have a little fun, what is the point of any of this?



Why Patreon?

In short, it all comes down to how far your dollar goes.    
 
Depending on your decision, this is how much of your contribution goes toward supporting the work. 

Every cent here makes it possible for me to focus more on writing and art. Your membership enables me to become a full time fiction writer. It also helps me get to more conventions around the country so I can meet you face to face. Some will also go to procuring more James, but I am not greedy, I always share. My dream has always been to build up a company that not only produces books, but eventually comics, animation, and other media. Together, we can build toward that future.

Patreon allows me to focus on creating things rather then promoting and selling each project. Your monthly membership allows me to focus on creating rather then selling

Choose your reward


You are literally making it possible for me to devote time to create more fiction for you. I want to spend my time making fiction for you. I don't want to work for advertisers, or Amazon, or any other company that doesn't really care about their audience. I want to work for you.

Members receive digital copies of the work they made possible. This work will be exclusive for the members for a period of time, then they will will be sold elsewhere.

How often?


I do not want to limit my work to only one piece a month, so instead of making this a per story campaign, I made it a per month. I am aiming for at least one chapter and short story per month, but hopefully I will produce more. 

Thank you!


I know time and money are precious, but every dollar you put toward this means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in my work and supporting it. You mean the world to me, now and forever.

I don't tend to share a lot on social media, I only share with members of the court, my inner circle of friends.  If you would like to join the court, I will share more about life,  writing, hobbies, and the occasional rant, along with  links to things I love (including books I am reading). 
Writing Workshop
$15 or more per month
In addition to everything at prior levels, you'll get access to a  monthly audio where I answer common writing questions. Primarily, I will focus on questions you submit on the monthly workshop post. I will also focus on some of my ideas, and some of the things I have learned over the years.

Break Even


One of the great things about working online is that it doesn't cost a lot of money to keep a business up and running.  Right now, my monthly budget for hosting, domains, and everything else is $400.  The actual monthly amount varies, but that is how much I put aside a month to pay for everything.  Once we hit this goal, I will be able to keep the lights on with nothing but your support.
