I'm the author of ten novels for Tor, most recently Extinction Game and Survival Game. Other books include Stealing LightAngel Stations and Final Days. Generally speaking, I'm known for writing space opera and hard SF, and I've done it fairly successfully for a number of years now. More details about my writing are at my website
...
I've set this Patreon up primarily because people email me and ask if there's going to be a follow-up to Extinction Game and Survival Game. I hate having to tell them that the publisher decided they didn't want another book in the series. Nonetheless, that third book kept niggling at my mind until I decided to do something about it. In August, I wrote a very fast first draft of a novella (40-50,000 words) intended to wrap up the series. Now it needs a thorough edit, including multiple drafts, all of which will take months of work.

The nature of publishing means it'll either have to be self-published, or put out by a small press. However, my need to focus on paying work means I don't have as much time to dedicate to it as I'd like. But if my Patreon reaches its minimum goal, I'll be able to focus on getting it finished much sooner than it might otherwise be. I'll also be able to focus much more on all my other writing projects, and thereby increase the chances of getting them published in the near future. 

In return, I can't promise a huge amount in the way of rewards - apart from things that might appeal to the writers amongst you, that is! However, there's every chance I might add new rewards over the coming months.

You'll get to download an ebook version of Scienceville, a novella first published in Interzone in 2015. You'll also get access to chapters posted as they're written and edited from DOOMSDAY GAME, a sequel to my previous novels EXTINCTION GAME and SURVIVAL GAME, as well as all subsequent edits. 


From time to time, when I have a new release coming out, you'll also have the opportunity to get advance e-copies if you pinky-swear to review them. 

Secret Chamber
$5 or more per month 4 patrons
Access to Patreon-only posts and content you won't get anywhere else: deleted chapters from books, including the Extinction series. I'll be adding more of these over time, as and when the opportunity arises. 


You can also ask me one simple question related to writing and publishing you might have, and I'll try and answer it in a post locked to Patreon users.

All other rewards, plus if you're a writer I'll give you a few words of advice on the opening page of any story you might be working on.
Goals
$56 of $250 per month
Reaching this goal will enable me to put much more of my energy and time into writing and completing a third and final book in the series that began with Extinction Game and, indeed, into writing and completing other books and novellas.
