A little over two years ago, I left my job with the idea that I would write the next Great American Novel. 

Since then, I've worked dilegently on my book: researching, writing, rewriting. And I've also learned what it means to be a working writer in 2015.  

I want to ultimately create worlds and characters and stories that people can lose themselves in. Places where readers can go to be free, even for a moment, from the worries and stresses of everyday life. But writing books take time. Years even, if you're me. And for first time novelists, you must finish the full manuscript before you are able to shop it to agents and publishers for interest. Which means there are giant chasms of time that a writer must support themselves in order to create the space and energy needed to write and finish the book. For me, this means writing other things, like articles, scripts and blogs in order to support myself, and my dream of being an author (and stay sane).

With your support, I will be able to call myself a full-time writer, even while I'm finishing my first novel. That means, for each piece of material, whether it's an article or story or script, that is published, Patreon will help fund my work. And all the things that go into that, like paying my light bill, buying my pug Maggie dog food, putting gas in my car, and even buying the pens I write with.

I don't expect anything from anyone. Instead, I hope to create great stories that otherwise would not be written. And if you are a patron of the arts, maybe you might find something in my writing worth investing in. Because that is what you would be doing. Investing in my life, and becoming a part of the art that I create. Helping, even a little, will make a huge difference in my day-to-day life. Like HUGE.

Thank you for all your support and I hope to make you proud.

What?? 3 dollars. That's crazy. And because of you I can afford the paper I scribble my thoughts on. You will get previews of my work before they are published. As well a line that I will write just for you, about yourself or whomever you want me to write about (your cat, your husband, your gardener).

I don't even know what to do with $20!! That's insane! And because of your insanity, you will get all of the above rewards. PLUS, I will create a eulogy for you. Like a birthday wish, but better. And it will give you all the feels, and emotions. And you can frame it, and look at it every time you need a reminder of your awesomeness.

Stop!! Not literally, but 50 dollars?!! I'm just so absolutely floored by you as a human being. You have a heart of gold, and for this heart of gold, you get all of the above rewards PLUS I will send you a short story or poem written in the shape of a heart. Beautiful, just like you, to hang on a nail or pin to your refrigerator so every time you pass it you remember what an incredible person you are and what a HUGE heart you have.

Hold on... Hold on... Sorry, I just passed out from the amazingness that is YOU!! What the what...100 dollars?!!! Life changing. Absolutely, without a doubt, you just became my favorite person. And because of this, I will send you a favorite person award, framed and everything. And I will also write you, like an actual letter, on an actual piece of paper, each month to discuss life, and weather, and writing. I will be your legitimate pen pal. And I will also give you early glimpses and exerpts of my books, writings, chapters and things I'm working on that I want feedbak on. And, of course, you will recieve a signed (if you want) advance copy of my novel when it is finished. Hopefully that's enough, but if it isn't we can discuss other things to add to make your life better.
