Hi, I'm Greg Fox, and I'm the writer/artist of "Kyle's Bed & Breakfast"... the ongoing comic strip series about a gay B&B, and the lives of the various guys who live there. It's full of romance, drama, laughter, suspense, and some occasional wackiness, (okay, maybe not so "occasional"... more like delightfully frequent wackiness!). In a way, it's kind of the TV-show-in-comic-strip-form that I have always wanted to see, and I feel blessed and tremendously grateful to get to bring the adventures of the B&B boys to the world with each episode. I also did a comic strip called "An Angel's Story" about an angel named Steve, who still continues to show up occasionally in Kyle's B&B episodes.

From the beginning, I've always been very clear that I want the most current Kyle's B&B episodes to be available to everyone for free online at the Kyle's B&B website, and I certainly am not planning to change that. (The B&B is open 24 hours and all are welcome! A warm place in a sometimes cold world).

Making comics was not always a full-time job for me, but it is now. I reached a point where I needed to go full-time to be able to do my comics properly and meet deadlines, (and be able to sleep, too!). And while I love it and I am deeply grateful to be doing this, the income it brings in is not nearly enough to be considered a sustainable income.

That's why I've created this Patreon page... to give readers of my comics work the opportunity to become supporting members, (just like with public television and national public radio!). But, hey... this is a win-win situation here... not only is this a way to help give me a sustainable income, it also will help fund some exciting new comics projects that readers have been asking for! And there are rewards for YOU for becoming a supporting member! At the very beginning $3 a month level, you'll have immediate access to my Patreon Activity Stream, (it's like a private, members-only blog that I'll be posting on regularly, right here on this page, with behind-the-scenes Kyle's B&B art, info, and fun stuff...and you'll also get early access to new Kyle's B&B episodes, before the general public does! As well as participate in reader polls!). At higher levels there are additional rewards, such as signed books, prints, T-shirts, your name in the "thank you" credits in upcoming Kyle's B&B books, and original artwork from me, (see the various pledge levels on the right-hand column to see the specific rewards for each level). There's even an adorable stuffed animal Frosty, the blue-eyed Siberian Husky, as a reward at one of the levels!

Because I've always had an interest in astronomy, space & all things celestial, (just like Kyle, and Njord, in Kyle's B&B!), I've assigned each of the reward levels with a planetary designation. From the $3 per month level, (the "Pluto Level"... yes, on this page, Pluto is still considered a planet!), up to the $400 per month level, (the "Jupiter Level"). If you just scroll down the right side of this page, you'll see the various levels and the rewards at each level.

And if you have more questions about how Patreon works, how payments work, how soon you get rewards, etc, etc... you can click back to the FAQs page at my own website and scroll down on that page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check this out, and for considering becoming a supporting member. I really, really appreciate it!

 When this goal is reached it will enable me to start work on the Kyle's B&B Birthday Book! And just what is the Kyle's B&B Birthday Book ? Well, without giving too much away, it involves the B&B guys... and birthdays.... and possibly birthday suits....and that's all I'm going to say for now, but it will be a lot of fun and something you will enjoy!!! Oh, and also, I will be even more overwhelmed with deep gratitude for your wonderful generosity!
