Hey, Charles here.

I'm an independent writer, and I write mostly on Medium. You're probably here because you read something that I wrote. I also run a monthly newsletter (around 30,000 readers at the moment) where I share books and articles that I find worth reading.

Though I prefer to just write and not worry about anything business-related, this Patreon page is a small compromise. Here, you can provide a small monthly contribution to cover some of the costs of writing, reading, and generally being alive.

As a thank you, some of the support tiers provide rewards. I'm very lazy about these, so please don't expect too much :D Thaks!

Tiers
Inner Circle
$3 or more per month 319 patrons

On this tier, you get:


  • Patron-only commentary. No promises, but I try to provide commentary on the things that I write.


Inner Circle^2
$9 or more per month 41 patrons

Patron-only commentary. No promises, but I try to provide commentary on the things that I write.

  • Each month, I'll mail you a handwritten postcard from wherever in the world I happen to be.
  • You'll also get access to patron-only commentary.
Suspicious Paper Package (Non-Fiction)
$39 or more per month 7 patrons

What you'll get:


  • Each month, I'll mail you one of my favorite non-fiction books, complete with a personal message inside!

Almost Benjamin Franklin
$99 or more per month 3 of 5 patrons

This used to be a tier where I offered phone calls to patrons, but that was discontinued in September 2018.


For now, it's a placeholder tier for people who'd like to show extra support. Please do not sign up here to get me to promote your book, etc. I won't do it.


You'll still get access to the monthly book, postcard, and patron-only commentary.



Goals
$1,378 of $2,000 per month
Bootstrapped!

At $2000 a month, I'll be able to write and record podcasts with less worry over having to generate income on the side.
