Hello and welcome! I'm James P. Sumner, a self-published fiction author of Thrillers and Young Adult Urban Fantasy. My work has topped the Amazon charts multiple times, won the 2015 Kindle Scout Program, and picked up two 2017 ATAI awards - for Best Thriller and Best General Fiction.

I've been writing since 2013, and it's been my full-time job since June 2016. To write for a living has been my dream since I was a child. It's hard work. I pull long hours, get no sleep (thanks to a brain that never switches off), and have a Internet search history that would make most government agencies blush!

Being an full-time indie author, there's a lot of pressure to maintain an online presence and to regularly engage with my audience. One of the things I love most about writing is being able to interact with my readers and give them the information and experience they want. It's not easy, because people want different things. I try to avoid sending every update I have via e-mail, because I know not everyone wants that level of detail in exchange for their support. Over the last twelve months or so, I've spread myself very thin trying to keep the various social media accounts and e-mail lists up-to-date.

That's where PATREON comes in.

This is where I host my blog, which I update a couple of times a week, so readers who are interested in that next level of detail can get an extra insight into what it takes to maintain a successful author career. It's also the main place for any important announcements and new release information. All posts are free and are tagged so you can easily find what you're looking for.

And, because it also functions as a sort of crowdfunding site for content creators, it allows me to offer you really cool stuff in exchange for sponsorship, which is awesome for all concerned.

If you want to check out my books, you can buy them directly from me via my online store - LINK. It also has some cool merchandise on there, if you're interested.

My GOALS, which you'll see on the left, break down the cost of running an author business into three stages. That way, if you're kind enough to sponsor my work, you can see exactly what your patronage is put towards - the ultimate goal of a self-sufficient business!

Thanks again for checking me out. I hope you decide to stick around!

Take care,

James
