A single creative mind in a sea of millions, a simple amateur author that has always found escape through the world of fantasy, sci-fi, and games like so many others. Someone that grew up writing, roleplaying, reading, and gaming as my escape from the chaotic grip of life itself. I try to include these ideas in my work, I write for two reasons. One, because to me it's one of the few things in my life I could ever consider a passion, and two, because my hope is to ease the lives and stress of my readers. If my writing can help even one person escape from the harsh reality we all live in, for just a bit to delve into a world of fantasy and wonder, then I am more than pleased.
I have been writing for most of my life as an escape and finally begun taking it seriously, seeking out those that enjoy my works and are willing to help me grow. Most of my works include a focus on short stories that interconnect in a world that I'm slowly developing through every character's story. In the end, I hardly think I'm anything special, but I pride myself on the few weapons that I have. The strongest being my adoration of the variety of cultures out the world has to offer, and how to best interweave them throughout my works. I want to spread these stories, this writing, through the minds of as many as possible, opening them up to new ideas, new cultures, faiths, thought processes.
Starting out as an author is difficult, anyone that's ever had the thought of "starting on a book", or even simply taken a glance at a conversation with an author, published or not, has come to realize that. Creating for a living, in general, is a rocky road for anyone to travel. Despite this, it's been a dream of mine to be a true author for most of my life, ever since I was a child opening my first Tolkien novel or D&D rulebook. Patreon offers the perfect method for amateur authors and creators to do what they love for a living, by being supported by those that they knew enjoys their works, and so I've chosen it in the hopes of it helping me expand my passions to those around me.
My Patreons, to me, represent:
- Anyone that appreciates the time invested into my work and wants to support what I do.
- People that want to see more from me than just a few short stories.
- Readers, listeners, and those that are simply curious that want to help keep the creativity going strong and encourage me to continue chasing my passions.
- Friends, Family, and Fans that care for me and in place of taking me out to dinner once a month, or buying me that coffee, want to instead help support something that is incredibly dear to me.
What do we get in exchange?
Finding a proper way to offer rewards is always difficult for me, as I'm happy to provide much of my content for free and this limits me inherently. I've put in a few rewards that, hopefully, you'll find intriguing but for the most part the only reason I ask for anyone to support me would be, quite frankly, because you enjoy the content that I provide you. If you enjoy my short stories, my rambling posts and thoughts, just what I offer in general and you want to support my works financially that's truly all I can ever ask for.
