A lifetime of stories live inside my head. Hey! Why don't you help them get their own apartment?

Hello, I'm Duth Olec (on the internet, anyway). I'm the author of the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos, a series of humorous, adventuresome stories of a scale so grand that it could be used to weigh trucks. My goal is to write novels, write short stories, write weird things, and it would be a whole lot easier if I could live off it so I wouldn't have to spend time doing boring lame things like answer phones to get an income. Wanna help me out?

Besides being focused on humor, my stories all have elements of science fiction and fantasy, because they're in another univerrrse! ... without humaaans! Everything in the stories are from my own mind--the worlds, the cities, the creatures, the events, the characters (more or less...). Some of them also have quite a bit of adventure to them, as well. You can see all the novels I've written so far on my website.

Now, I'm a big fan of free stuff. Who isn't? So my novels are made available in two ways. Your patronage will fuel the first one, which is the early and free postings--every month I will post the next section from my next novel or a short story, basically releasing them as a serial. As I release one chapter a month, patrons can give me money each month. That money will help me pay for, well, life, but it will also help me pay for expenses related to the stories, such as the second way they're available: books.

The chapters and short stories I post online are edited thoroughly by myself and sometimes given to others to look at ahead of time. When I finish stories to be sold as paper books and e-books, though, it goes through a professional editor. And that's not cheap, y'know, so you're helping make these books more amazing! These paper books and e-books won't be free, but all patrons will get a code for free copies of the ebooks.

The Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos is more than just novels and short stories, though--or, at least, it will be if we can make some cool milestones. Right now this includes... well, more novels and short stories, but as things kick into higher gear I'll be able to do some cool stuff like a Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmail Comic where characters from my novels answer e-mails you can send in. I hope to come up with more ideas as time goes on. There's also cool stuff just for patrons, including free copies of books and weekly updates on whatever it is I've been working on that week.

Creating fun things is my favorite thing to do in all of space and time, and if people enjoy it, that makes it all the much better. Even if you don't become a patron, I thank you for dropping by and giving me a look. Unless it's a nasty look. I hope you like the writing I do, though, and there's always more to come. I'll keep writing. I won't let even death stop me there.

Double-digits? We have a start! I thank everyone who gets me to this moment, so I'll make a video thanking every patron where I read some selections from recent works and what the future holds. I might even appear on-camera, and be awkward and bad, but I'll still do my best!
