My name is Jeremy Dyson. For those of you that don't know me already, I write books. I am the author of the Rise of the Dead series, which has several books out already.

As some of you guys may or may not know, writing books has been my goal for twenty years or so. When I published my first book a few years ago, I finally felt like I'd really done something. It didn't even matter to me how well it did, I was just excited to have finished a book that I wrote and hold a copy in my hands.

I wasn't expecting what happened next. People actually read it. They wanted more books.

My plan was not to become an author, even though I loved writing. I just wanted to write one book. But I figured, I'd give it another shot. So I wrote a sequel. This year I just completed the third book and have plans to write at least two, but maybe many more books in this series.

The struggle has always been finding the time. I'm a father of two young girls. There's always bills to pay, stuff to fix, grass to cut, and so much to clean. It's hard to handle everything and still find the time to write as much as I'd like.

In the past, I have struggled to get stories out fast enough. Some readers maybe gave up on ever seeing the next book. It's never for a lack of ideas. I have lots of works in progress, even more ideas, and I write and edit every day now.

No matter how much I tried, there was always so much other STUFF getting in the way. That was why I decided to start a Patreon. I wanted to give my readers the opportunity to help me create a greater number of stories than I could before. Instead of asking when the next book is coming, you can help make it happen sooner.

By becoming a patron, you will have the chance to come along on the journey with me as I create these stories. You will get exclusive to some stories, early access to others, and get to see what is going on in the world of the dead. All the funds raised will go to help free up additional time for me to write more new material. That could mean hiring an editor, proofreader, or cover designer, anything that helps me spend more time writing stories instead of all the other stuff that takes up so much time. When you're committed to self-publishing, it takes a lot of help to reach the readers that will enjoy your stories, so I hope some of my hardcore readers will be a hero and help make it all possible.

It might not have always been my goal, but now it is. I'm hoping to write full-time and have a lot of novels planned in a range of genres from post-apocalyptic sci-fi, to slasher horror, and even some action-style thrillers.

They say you only live once. That might sound generic, but it is true. I've realized I have a lot of stories I want to tell in this lifetime, and I hope to get as many novels as I can out there. So, I hope you will come along on this adventure with me and help make these stories happen.
