My name is Dale Sawanas and I need you.

Never before has this type of offer come about and it is quite original.

I'm an author of science fiction and fantasy novels and short stories for young adults and children.
Here's the problem though: I am trying to break into and create a whole new niche in the creativity forum. I want to start writing fantasy novels that will utilize the ancient legends of our people and create new worlds and characters from that realm. I hope to capture the imagination of the next generation of youth and children of the aboriginal peoples of turtle island.

I am currently unemployed and I have loads of time on my hands to take on this venture but as with many ventures…you need money in order to write and publish your books. So I am prepared to write and do some writing and more writing until I complete the first book of a trilogy. I have a writer inside me who desperately wants to come out and I have plans for an autobiography, perhaps a memoir and a maybe a testimonial. But retelling our legends in my favorite genre is what is currently driving me. My favorite books are: The Wheel Of Time Series by Robert Jordan or Terry Goodkinds The Sword of Truth Series.

I want people to invest in my writing business so that I can be more productive. Here are the things I'd like to accomplish in the foreseeable future:

  • Finish Book One of the Rise of the Windigo trilogy on time;
  • Write a lot more short stories, and possibly put together a short story collection (or two!);
  • Write more side-stories set in the same worlds;
  • Sleep regularly. Eat better. Go biking and hiking and walking more often. Take my dog out on a walk. All of these things will help me write.
While patronage is building, I'll provide monthly content like teasers for you to read. I'll also incrementally add fun perks. Like what? Bonus content per month! Maybe a podcast? More pics of turtle Island characters from the drawing board? We'll see!

All patrons from the $5/month level and up will get access to monthly exclusive content, which you can digitally download and view as I post. At least once per month you will receive one of the following:

  • A side-story set in one of my worlds; 
  • A test or draft chapter (in sequence) from one of my of forthcoming novels;
  • A draft version of a new short story, or a trunked story I'm actively revising.
  • And of course actual signed copies of all art and hardcover books for those who have subscribed to Patreon.

Want to contribute more than $5/month? Cool. I'm adding some stuff that will be exclusive for people who contribute at higher levels -- videos, thank you calls, signed copies, that sort of thing.

I hope that you will join me in my vision of a whole new genre. Let's get started!
