Commission Something!

Like my writing? Want me to specifically write something for you? Then pick this tier for me to write you a one-time commissioned work of up to 5k words. It can be whatever you want, original fiction, fanfiction, a story set in the Sagas/Patchwork Alchemist universe, short story, the first chapter of a longer work, etc etc. I'm even willing to offer my expertise if you just want help fleshing out a story idea of your own or beta reading.

Be warned though, there's a limited number of spaces. Also, I maintain the right to ask you to pick something different if I have a problem with your initial idea.

Sooo.... It turns out writers kinda need money to live, huh? How about that.

Okay, joking aside, this page is more or less what it says on the tin, a place for you to help fund my efforts, show support for my writing and, y'know, generally make it so that I don't starve to death on the street. 

In case you're not familiar with my work (which, y'know, probably applies to most people?), my name is Malcolm Pope (although I occasionally go by Rukaio Alter online) and I'm a writer. And a pretty damn good one if I do say so myself. Because, y'know, I wouldn't be opening one of these pages if I didn't think I had at least some talent in the art.

Primarily, I tend to prefer writing genre fiction, especially Fantasy and Comedy. And I'm also fairly fond of writing short stories, although I also do have a few longer works currently in the semi-completed stage. I'm also a pretty big film fanatic and spend a lot of time writing reviews and analyses of films that particularly interest me.

One of the current big works that I'm doing right now, as the banner above might suggest, is the Sagas of Capes and Cowls, a series of short stories and serials melding High Fantasy and Superhero tropes into a story of adventures and intrigue. You can find the first few stories up on Spacebattles or on my own humble website, Ineffectual Comic Relief, where you can also find some of the other short stories I've worked on in the past, along with a collection of reviews and film rankings.

Speaking of, here's a link. 

Another project I'm currently working on is a slightly Steampunk-esque Fantasy novel called 'The Patchwork Alchemist', that is currently exclusive to $5 tier Patrons. If you enjoy magic, steampunk and short-tempered Alchemists, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try.

So yeah, that's basically what I'm about. And hopefully, if this takes off, I'll have room for plenty of more things in the future, from ebooks to vlogs to anything else that people might be interested in reading or that I might be interesting in doing.

So please feel free to pledge and enjoy.
