Like my work enough to throw a couple of bucks in my chapeau but have too many other things going on for a larger monthly donation? This tier is for you.

You enjoy what I do enough to throw me a monthly Lincoln. It's enough for the Son of Baconator that helps fuel me. Thank you.

About Jef Rouner

Hi,

This is freelance reporter and horror author Jef Rouner. I wrote a pretty famous piece about the difference between fact and opinion that was internationally viral, lauded by a scientist who was decorated with a presidential medal, and is now taught as part of several college courses.

Or you may know me from my examination of Heath Ledger’s Joker as the hero of The Dark Knight. Or from my many, many, MANY articles about Doctor Who. Or from my feminist writings against dress code shaming, online harassment, representations in media, and so on.

I am also a fiction writer, mostly of horror short stories, some of which I publish weekly on my TikTok as Friday Nightmares. The majority of these appear in my books, Stranger Words and The Rook Circle. Subjects range from vampires to drive-thru churches to the Krampus. Though they tend to be scary, the stories have found a remarkable amount of near-universal praise on Amazon, partially because they deal with the same social justice themes I champion in my blogging.

Finding time to write fiction instead of blogs as well as marketing is the most daunting obstacle I currently have as an author. With monthly donations providing a small cushion it’s something I can more easily pull off.

This is not asking something for free. Each patron will receive free electronic copies of everything I ever publish, no matter how small. In addition, patrons will get sneak peaks at new stories as I finish them. I also post a weekly newsletter through here so supporters can get a look at all the stories I cover as well as new fiction. All my books and stories will be eternally available right here for your use. Hopefully, this will expand to audiobooks as I learn how to use my new equipment.
