Greetings, fellow Earthlings! If you're here, that means you have at least a passing appreciation for what I slave over day and night. First off, just know that I appreciate you even more, just for watching/reading or even casually perusing the things I choose to create.

Believe it or not, I consider myself first and foremost to be a science-fiction novelist, though getting the attention of prospective agents and publishers has proven to be WAY more difficult than I thought, which is saying something since I thought it would be nearly impossible to begin with. What started over a decade ago as a side project that I considered parlaying into a freelance writing career, my blog, has morphed over the years into something greater: a full-throated embrace of my passion for classic sci-fi. You know where that's taken me so far--all the way to YouTube--but much to my annoyance, it hasn't taken me anywhere where I get to see much in the way of revenue.

Which brings us to Patreon, the Internet's tip jar for struggling artists. I would be absolutely thrilled if you'd chuck in a buck or two to help me out, and in return, I promise to keep doing what I'm doing, using this tip money to improve my set-up and ensure that my content only improves over time.

Again, thank you thank you thank you, just for coming here and checking this out. If you choose to donate, THANK YOU even more, and remember: never be ashamed of what you love, as long as you aren't hurting anybody.
Tiers
Nanobots
$1 or more per month

They may look small, but together, they can achieve the impossible. In this tier, you'll earn:


--The ability to vote on what movie I'll tackle next in my videos

--A spot on my thank you list on my website (let me know if you want me to use a name other than your username)*

Robots
$3 or more per month

Bigger and less prone to going berserk or causing a grey goo problem, robots free humans of the need for unpleasant manual labor. In this tier, you'll earn:


--The ability to vote on what movie I'll tackle next in my videos

--A spot on my thank you list on my videos (and a spot on the list on my website; let me know if you want me to use a name other than your username)*

--Access to instant, written reviews of current/recent movies

--Early access to new videos

Androids
$8 or more per month

Made in the image of their creators, androids are self-aware, self-conscious, and capable, if they so choose, of overthrowing their masters and becoming the new dominant force of the galaxy. In this tier, you'll earn:


--The ability to vote on what movie I'll tackle next in my videos

--The ability to force me to include one movie of your choice in the short list of voting options (must be a sci-fi film, at least 30 years old, that I can get a DVD copy of)

--A spot on my thank you list on my videos (and a spot on the list on my website; let me know if you want me to use a name other than your username)*

--Access to instant, written reviews of current/recent movies

--Early access to new videos

--Access to the occasional bonus video

--A free, signed copy of my debut novel, Paradox, and any future novel I may publish*


*NOTICE: Thank you lists and other tangible gifts are redeemed at the start of the new month.

Goals
$12 of $50 per month
I'll increase the release schedule of my videos to three a month instead of one every other week.
