You love dark gothic supernatural twisted psychological horror fiction. 

I love writing it.

About me:

I'm Douglas Clegg, I've written and seen published more than 30 books. My past novels include The Hour Before Dark, Neverland, You Come When I Call You, and Bad Karma. My past short fiction can be found in the collections Lights Out, Night Asylum, The Nightmare Chronicles, and Wild Things. More about me at DouglasClegg.com.

I appreciate your support. In return, I will give you my best.


I'm here to write stories:  short stories, novelettes, novellas (possibly a novel?) but primarily short fiction for you to read in ebook/digital form before anyone else gets hold of them. I will give you my best.  Patreon allows me creative freedom, interactions with you, creating exclusivity for a time for my patrons (again: you), and a great way to do it.

My goal is for one new story per month at the most.

For me to give you my best, that's the pace that will work for me.

Scroll down to read all the cool stuff.



The basic tier of membership:

Be a Night Crawler and pay $3 per story.

The same amount whether it's a short story, novelette, or novella. There are additional tiers now for other extras and exclusives if you're interested. But this is the one that we're both here for. 

You can pay more if you wish, that's up to you. We'll likely adjust community goals downward to reach them more quickly the more you pay but you don't need to do that.


Once we hit the first goal I'll be at my Underwood Champion typewriter, clacking away at the keys and getting your story out to you soon after as a digital download. One day, a bit later, it'll be published more widely in online bookstores. But you get to read it first in advance because you and your interest in these stories are important to me.

Bringing you my best new stories is my primary goal.

Many of you have been reading my novels and stories for years. I write for both myself and you. Let's explore the fiction of the dark, the strange, the eerie.

But there are other tiers of memberships if you wish. You could get your name in the acknowledgments pages of each ebook; or all that plus access an audio file of me reading the recent story to you into my voice recorder (sure it'll be rough, but you can make fun of my voice, too, or hear when I'm all scratchy and sneezy).

More exclusive offers will be added as time goes on at other membership levels.

But the base of "a new story delivered at-most once per month" is for every single member of this community. I am thankful and grateful for you, your love of reading, your love of dark fiction and if I play my cards right, your love of what I write.

Your kind of fiction is my kind of fiction.

If you're here, you may familiar with where my fiction can go.  

As we reach our goals, I'll likely offer various other things that you as a fan of my work might enjoy, novels-in-progress scenes, writing insights and who knows? Even my dream notebook with its weird dreams that help me with creativity.



Thank you for your support of the creation of my fiction.


Tiers
Night Crawlers
$3 or more per story

Night Crawlers are my dream team. 


  • As we hit the goals I'll write a never-before-published short story, novelette or novella (possibly novel, depending on goal-hitting) and you'll get it as a digital download.
  • You'll get the story as an exclusive pre-publication edition before it's published elsewhere.
  • I'm going to add in sneak peeks and extras as we go.
  • Eternal gratitude for this patronus spell you've cast.
Crypt Keepers
$7 or more per story

Crypt Keepers are the guardians of the bones. As such, you'll get all the benefits of Night Crawlers (Tier 1)  PLUS:


  • Your name will go on the acknowledgments page of each ebook single for which you remain a Crypt Keeper. If there are 3,000 of you someday, I will make room in the ebook for your beautiful name.

    This is a huge way to support the fiction I'm working on.  I really appreciate it and am proud to put your name on the acknowledgments page of the story's ebook.


Thank you.

Harrow Haunters
$10 or more per story

Harrow Haunters make the place come alive...


  • You'll get all the benefits of Night Crawlers (Tier 1)  plus the benefits of Crypt Keepers (Tier 2)...PLUS:


  • Access to a rough audio file (meaning: from my voice recorder) of me reading the short story that month.  This means if I have a cold, you get that beautiful stuffed-up sound or if I've had too much caffeine, my fast-speed voice...but it'll be me alone in my office with a voice recorder doing my best, no special effects sounds, no music.


With a restriction: this is only for short stories and novelettes (2,000-12,000 words approximately). 


This will not apply to novellas or novels when and if they become the thing here because...I don't have the vocal cords or skills for that. But good news for you: most of what will come out monthly here will be short stories and novelettes.

You'll get these exclusively here, though they may be sold elsewhere at a later date.

Thank you for your support of my fiction!

Goals
52 of 200 patrons
When we reach 300 patrons, I'll be finishing up that first story for you for release and from here on, you'll get a short story at most once per month of 2,000-5000+ words until we hit the next goal. I will give you my best.
