Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Doug, better known as D. William Landsborough. I'm an indie author who just released my first book, Archangel, on February 12. In my writing, you can expect to see dark fantasy, horror and maybe a bit of sci-fi once in a while.

This Patreon is going to be home to my short stories, specifically my Nightshade series.

All her life, strange things have followed Claire; monsters, ghosts, things that go bump in the night. Claire is a supernatural herself. Worst of all? No one knows exactly what she is. But Claire isn’t the type to let something like that get in the way.

An ongoing series of urban fantasy short stories, Claire lives in two worlds: the one that you and I see, and the one filled with supernaturals. She is a slayer, a hunter of the worst monsters and a drinking buddy for the best of them. But things aren’t easy when you are trying to balance two lives, especially when not even the monsters trust you.

Set-up like a TV series with seasons, Nightshade will have eight stories per year and a continuous storyline and roster of characters. As patrons, you will get monthly Nightshade stories, as well as an exclusive Patreon-only e-book when the series is over that contains two bonus stories that will never be available anywhere else!

Just $2 per story gets you access to the Nightshade stories as they come out, plus the exclusive e-book at the end of every season with two bonus stories.

If you pledge $5 per story, you get the stories and e-book seven days early and a special thank-you in all Nightshade e-books.

$10 per story gives you the opportunity to beta read future stories, including novels. This means that your feedback will be incorporated into my future writing before anyone else sees it! You will also get free e-books of all of my works, not just Nightshade.

Finally, pledging $20 or more gives you all the perks of the previous tiers, plus a thank-you in all of my novels and novellas, not just Nightshade. It also gets you a signed copy of any future paperback or hardcover releases with a personalized message.

There will be more rewards coming for patrons as we grow and have fun together. These include Google Hangouts, release streams and Q&A sessions, plus whatever else we think of!

If you are still on the fence, you can read the first three stories of Nightshade Season One on my website, absolutely free. Number four, The Keeper, is releasing in March, so get ready for some excitement.

Don't worry if you are just joining, either. Whenever you pledge, you will get all Nightshade stories that you've missed, with no charge.

Lastly, a sincere thank you for coming on this journey with me. It's people like you that let me pursue my dreams every day, and there are no words that can properly express my gratitude for that. Hopefully my stories are a start!

This is awesome! $75 is a great first step to making Nightshade and other short stories part of my dream career. To celebrate, I will release a non-Nightshade short story, just for Patrons.
