Hi! I'm modern fantasy author Jeff Coleman.

I currently support myself as a full-time web developer. It's not a bad job, but it's hard to sit down and write when you've been programming all day, and for me storytelling is so much more than a passion. I want to create fiction that fosters that sense of otherworldy wonder that's so tragically missing from the world today.

To do this, I need your help.

By contributing to my campaign, you'll make it possible for me to spend more time writing novels, novellas and short stories. I post four unique pieces of flash fiction per month that you can only find here on Patreon. You can pledge as little as a dollar for each, totalling only four dollars per month. You'll get to go behind the scenes with me as I write my books and be a part of the creative process.

If you give at least $2 per flash fiction, you'll get to read early drafts of every novel, novella and short story I write, and will also receive a free digital copy of the final published book in the format of your choice.

I can't do this alone, but together we can make it happen!

$1 or more per Flash Fiction
Thank you! Not only will you gain access to patron-only flash fiction and get announcements about projects before anyone else, I'll also name a character after you in one of my flash fiction pieces, and will publicly acknowledge you in my next blog post for your generosity.

You are awesome! At this level, you'll get: 1) Access to early drafts of every novel, novella and short story I write, 2) A free digital copy of the final published book in the format of your choice, and 3) Your name will go into the acknowledgements every time I publish a new book :)
You choose what I write!
$5 or more per Flash Fiction
Were you hooked on one of my flash fiction pieces and wanted more? If you're awesome enough to support me at $5 per flash fiction, not only will you get everthing from the $1 and $2 reward levels, you'll also get to pick which of my flash fiction pieces you'd like me to turn into a longer short story. You'll also have your name added to the acknowledgements whenever I publish a new book. To claim this reward, you must give at this level for the time that it takes me to complete the story.

Every three months, I'll mail you a hardcover copy of one of my favorite fantasy books!

Reward continues for as long as you give at this level.
You choose what I write for my next novel!
$50 or more per Flash Fiction
Ok, hold on a second. I have to catch my breath. Do you have any idea how incredible you are? At this level of support, not only do you get everything from the $1, $2, and $25 reward levels, you also get to pick which of my flash fiction pieces (from the blog or the patron-only feed) I'll turn into a novel or novella. To receive this reward, you must give at this level for the duration of the time it takes for me to write the book.
I will fly to anywhere in the world to meet you. Seriously.
$500 or more per Flash Fiction
I know you're out there somewhere, The Most Generous Man or Woman in the World. I'm not really expecting this, but if you're cup of generosity overflows to the tune of $500 per flash fiction, I will seriously fly to anywhere in the world to meet you. We'll hang. No joke. That's in addition to EVERY other reward level above!
Goals
79% complete
NOTE: This goal was already reached before I later dipped below $100, and the story was already decided on by my patrons at the time. The story chosen, which I'll be working on as soon as I finish my $5 patron stories, is called The Traveler.

Fund me at $100 per flash fiction and you'll receive what I'm going to call the centennial special! You guys will get to decide through a vote which of my flash fictions you want me to develop into a longer short story (2500–4000 words, or about 10–15 pages.) Not only will you get a free copy in the digital format of your choice, I'll also send each of you a signed printed manuscript in the mail, along with a handwritten letter thanking you for your generous support.
