Background Information
Hello and welcome to my Patreon page!

My name is Erik Beuck, though when it comes to my fiction writing I often go by Charles.  I've been writing for most of the past nine years, though up until now I've been mostly keeping it to myself.

I am a fourth year PhD student in Political Science currently engaged in the early stages of my dissertation research. I'm from Ohio originally, though I came to Tennessee to pursue graduate school. It is my aim to start as a Professor in a Political Science department following the defense of my dissertation in two years time, though I also continue to have aspirations towards historical and fiction writing as well.

Full Disclosure

I am experimenting with the creation of this Patreon page as a means to attain assistance for my work, but as I will be using funds for multiple things, I think its only fair to be as upfront as possible in everything I am doing, as well as give you, the potential Patron, access to and a voice in my work.  It is not fair for me to only present myself as doing one thing when I am doing multiple.  That being said, here are the main places money will be going:

Conferences
Travel for research
Purchase of research documents/data
Paying off academic loans
Further development of skills for my work

Benefits to Patrons: General
Here is what you'll gain access to as one of my patrons:
1- Access to what I'm doing / working on!
2- Access to general posts about writing / research!
3- Access to posts about world events as they intersect with my research!
4- Access to more (TBD) as I come up with ideas and get feedback from you all!

In addition, below are more specific benefits, based on the type of work.

Benefits to Patrons: Fiction
1- You gain access to all my short stories as I write them!
2- You will get access to any and all chapters from my books as I am working on them!
3-You will get access to completed novels! Some donors will get signed physical copies!

Examples: These are the current fiction projects I've been working on, which I will elaborate on more in future posts.  A fantasy novel entitled the "Bloodied Mastiff," a Russian crime novel with the working title of "Red Bratva," and lastly a WWII alt-history novel wherein the war doesn't end in 1945 but instead enters another phase of the war with the US and the states of Western Europe versus the newly expanded Soviet Union in the ruins of Berlin.

Benefits to Patrons: Nonfiction
1- You will gain access to the works of history as I write them!
2- You will get early access to parts of a book about international law and territorial disputes, that is in part based on my dissertation that I am writing now!
3- You will get access to articles on how to conduct research and the process of writing!

Benefits to Patrons: Research

1- You will get access to all my research publications, and the academic work I conduct throughout my career!
2- You will get access to my writing about undergraduate and graduate student education topics!
3- You will get access to my completed dissertation project once it is complete!

My Research Interests (General): International Relations, Interstate Conflict, Intrastate Conflict, Territorial Disputes, Technology, Transnational and Domestic Terrorism, Asia, the Middle East, and Research Methods.

If you have made it this far, thank you for taking interest in what I am doing! If you do decide to become my Patron I will strive to be worthy of your faith in my work! Stay tuned for more posts in the days and weeks to come!!

Best Wishes,
Erik Beuck
