Hi! I'm Jacob Shelton and I'm the creator of Minor Phrases. It's a weekly photo based short story thing that's usually funny and sometimes it's been known to illicit other emotions. You can read the stories for free on instagram or the minor phrases  website, whichever suits you. You probably already know that. 

As much as I would love for a sweet angel baby mystery investor to send me free money that's probably not going to happen and it would be weird. I'd rather make things, be they the shorts stories that you know, weird little poems, or short films. I'm hoping this can be a way for you to support art that you enjoy while keeping me from feeling like a creep. 

Your contribution will go toward me buying new photos, paying for hosting, and creating some new projects that I haven't told anyone about because they cost money. I may even use the money to focus on making my stories better, even though you and I both know they're perfect as is.

Wow, thank you. I'll send you an email with those exact words, maybe even monthly! Seriously, thank you. 
One Cup Of LA's Finest Coffee
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
If you weren't aware, I live in a bungalow directly under the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles, a place where everyone does crossfit and things are expensive. 


With your five dollar donation I'll buy myself a cup of coffee so I can write faster and with more jittery hands. You'll gain access to a feed of poems and short stories that I write while drinking the coffee. I'm not sure if this is a promise or a threat.

Now we're talking. With ten whole dollars I can finally live in style. With this tier you'll gain access to some kind of secret feed where I'll share new photos that I purchase, photos I'm writing about, and rough drafts of stories that may or may not appear online. 


This tier will also include short book reviews, and my thoughts on whatever horror movie I just watched.

This gets you all the previous stuff, a copy of the first series of printed minor phrases stories, and any of the following books/physical print things in which my work appears. I'm working on a lot of stuff so you better clear out your book shelf if you're giving at this level.



Seriously, once a month you're getting something in the mail. It could be a personal story (no promises) or one of the many weird things I find on the street. Believe me, I find A LOT of weird things on the street and they're rarely pieces trash. 

Goals
$17 of $100 per month
With $100 a month I could take myself out for a fancy pizza date and buy groceries. I'm 13 by the way.
