To the newcomers:
Hi! My name is J.D. Rice, and I'm a flash fiction writer and novelist, writing mostly science fiction and fantasy. My accolades include:
- 30+ published flash fiction stories
- Former professional ghostwriter
- Co-author for the novella series, Of Angels and Olympians (book 2 coming soon!)
Currently, I work as a professional writer in the federal contracting space, which, while fun, cannot compare to my dream of writing fiction full time.
Through this Patreon campaign, I hope to increase my writing output, share my stories with a wider fanbase, and achieve my dream of becoming a career novelist.
What do you get for your support?
Most of my rewards involve early access to my published works, along with additional behind-the-scenes insight into my writing process. Anyone who commits just $5 a month will receive early review copies of all self-published books.
Some rewards also involve collaboration, which means my writing can help get your ideas onto the page! I am an experienced ghostwriter (I did it professionally for two years!) so I have a knack for working well with others.
What do I get from your support?
All the basic things like money for copyediting, cover art, marketing, etc.
But more importantly, your support buys me TIME. I am a working husband and father, so my time for writing is limited. The more Patreon goals I reach, the more time I will be able to justify committing to my writing, the more books I'll be able to write, and the closer I'll be to the ultimate goal of writing fiction full time. I can't do this without you!
"I can't donate now, but how else can I support you?"
Other ways you can support me include:
- Sharing my work online: Thanks to the support of my patrons (see Goal #1), I submit new flash fiction stories for publication on a weekly basis. Reading, liking, and sharing these stories when they are published will help me grow my readership.
- Reviewing my books: As time ticks on, I'll be releasing more and more self-published books on Amazon and other retailers. Reading these books and leaving your honest review will encourage more people to enjoy my books and hopefully be drawn to this very page.
- Following me on Twitter: I will be posting updates on new stories, book releases, special offers, and other tid-bits about my life on a regular basis. You can keep up with all my goings-on by following me @jeremydrice
- Keeping in touch!: I love hearing back from all my readers, not just those who support me through Patreon. Shoot me an email at [email protected] or send me a message on Twitter if you ever have any questions, comments, or just want to shoot the breeze
"Where can I find your work?"
Another excellent question!
