Restructuring - 11-1-18 - Reopening by 12-1-18

If you're here, reading this, you likely already know me through my stories,
like the WILL CASTLETON psychic detective series, or the RIDERS OF THE WEIRD WEST tales.

For $1, you get all of the above, plus A BRAND NEW SHORT STORY and at least one rereleased tale from my vaults per month, one that's unavailable on Kindle. Subscribers to my newsletter get to vote every month on some aspect of the new story - maybe the title, the main character (i.e., Will Castleton, Menger, Riders of the Weird West), the setting, etc.)

Just $2 per month will grant you full access to the ongoing serial Lovecraftian-zombie-post-holocaust epic THE SHADOW DESCENDS! At least one chapter will be posted per month.


For $5, you get a weekly writing advice column, posted like clockwork every Friday. You'll get access to all the past columns plus each week's new post! I taught every sort of writing at the college level for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2018. 

For $10, you get all the above, plus full access to THE STUDIO. This is a special place, full of surprises for my top supporters. It will contain one work in progress - right now it's an an alternate history book full of action and monsters called AMERICAN DREAMERS - plus an ARCHIVE full of member-exclusive stories, ebooks, novellas and collections you won't find on Amazon, videos, exclusive essays, mp3s and other goodies. This is the tier that's literally supporting my writing life, and I guarantee you several perks per month. Those joining in the first month of this Patreon project, will get:

  
                    
NEVER STOP - The first 15,000 words of a forthcoming Will Castleton novel. This one takes place far into the planned timeline for Will and won't be completed for some time yet.

THE HOUSE IN CYRUS HOLLER - Psychic detective and ghost hunter Will Castleton (DEATH SIGHT, THE CASTLETON FILES, RETURN TO ANGEL HILL) faces hulking monsters and interdimensional demons in a haunted holler in the Kentucky backwoods in this action-packed, over-the-top novella which previously appeared in the PIERCING THE DARKNESS anthology. (Otherwise only available on Audible.com)
MENGER BITES THE BIRD - Many readers think burn-scarred small-time thug mastermind Mike Menger is the most compelling character in GRAY LAKE. What happens to him after he drives out of that novel, screaming into the night? That'll eventually be answered in a longer work called MENGER LIVES! But you can get plenty of clues in this exclusive novella! (Otherwise only available on Audible.com)
THE ROAD TO GRAY LAKE - Consider my novel GRAY LAKE the movie and this the bonus DVD - there are deleted scenes, author commentary (essays) on the writing of the book, a soundtrack, and more!
