I am a writer. I am currently working on a creating a large, connected world of strange and awesome stories. I will be releasing my newest novel, The Edge of Never a chapter at a time here to my Patrons. I will also be writing a short story in this world each month that will go exclusively to my patrons. As you know, I also produce The Author Stories Podcast twice a week. The podcast is an enormous amount of work. Having patrons for my writing will allow me to focus time on creating new fiction while also bringing you quality author interviews.
For the first few days of the campaign, if you sign up for any level pledge, you will have access to a digital copy of all of my stories and books to date.

Each of my books so far have been set in the fictional town of Weston, Mississippi. Weston is a strange place where one character said "Weston is one of those places where the veil between this world and the next is a little thinner than most." If you've read Bloom, Mulligan, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Writer's Block, or the host of short stories that I've set in this town, you will realize that there is something larger going on than what you can see on the surface. 

I've had the idea of a connected world that tells a larger story for quite some time, and I chose a small town aesthetic on purpose. By building a place and characters that the reader can get to know and feel that they are a part of, the world becomes something magical, and real at the same time.

By supporting my Patreon campaign, you will get to see first hand how this world is constructed and receive insider information on what's going on. If you're a fan of literature, you'll also get a view to the creative process like no other. 


Here's what some folks have said about some of the other Weston stories I've published already:

"Garner’s folksy prose remind us that we’re surrounded by magic, that Weston is every town, and that there is a bit a Stu in each of us."

"Garner has an easy way about his storytelling, one that draws you in and puts you right alongside the characters. Even when trouble happens for Stu, the author makes sure that the readers feel safe and confident in the process. I love Garner's writing style and with each new story he just keeps getting better and better. I love how Writer's Block ultimately ended as well, capping off a story that essentially ended up telling itself."

"This book exceeded my expectations. It grabbed me from the moment I started reading it and I kept thinking about when I could pick it up and continue until I finished. This book is actually the first book that I have used the highlight feature on my Kindle. I highlighted several passages reading it. I believe this book will be one of those that you will get something different out of it each time that you read it. I cannot recommend this book enough. This book will help change your life and the way you look at things."
