Hello, I'm J. I. Rogers - Sci-Fi Author & Artist.
Do you want more? Excellent; I've prepared a monologue!

Well, the biography on my website starts off like this:
"I am a green-eyed, ginger-haired, caffeine addict who is currently working on ‘The Korpes File Series’. When not acting as a conduit for the voices in my head or pursuing something artistic, I'm a poster child for Gen X and the Queen of most boondoggles that lead to eye-strain and tinnitus."
It’s all true.
In my life leading up to this moment, I’ve studied film animation (pre-CGI), earned my papers as a Montessori preschool teacher, and run a hap-hazard but kept-me-in-kibble computer tech business with myself as my sole employee. I've had a family, herded cats, read voraciously, and played many RPGs (both old school and computer). “The Korpes File Series” is my first foray into writing science fiction.

Describe My Writing Style?

In "The Korpes File Series", I blend dystopian elements, hard science fiction themes, and multi-dimensional characters to create a unique mix; I know you've heard that line before, but it's true.  The first two books have been described as an epic story of future humanity reminiscent of the Golden Age of science fiction where authors like Asimov and Clarke covered wide sweeping panoramas of future worlds. Issues of racism, classicism, and medical exploitation weave through the narrative as the main protagonist, Nash X. Korpes, first fights to survive then begins to agitiate for positive change.



Book one, 'The Korpes File', has received multiple 5-star reviews on Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Goodreads, and on a variety of highly-regarded book blogs.
"The Korpes File" was chosen as:

Book two, "The Korpes Agenda", was published in March 2019.

I'd like to give people the opportunity to contribute to my creative process... and send them unique loot for doing so.

I've contemplated becoming a Patreon Creator for over a year, but I held off; I didn't know if I could generate enough content to keep people interested. You'll note that I went with the 'per creation' payment option instead of monthly to allow for my muse's fickle nature.

What do I need the funds for?


I'd like to produce another nine books, an atlas, bestiary, more maps, a series of graphic novels and eventually an animated feature using 'The Korpes File Series' as the source material. These ventures are costly, both financially and in the amount of time they'll take. As a patron, you'll be making it possible for me to take these concepts from drawing table to reality. This brings us to...



Do I have samples?

Yes. There is a tiny selection of my digital and traditional art below. I dabble in illustration, digital art, photography... I may even do a limited run of figurines at some point.



This map also appears in the first three books.

Nash X. Korpes - main protagonist in books one through three.

Mhmmm. Anything Else?
I'll be adding to the reward tiers and stretch goals as time goes on (note the positive attitude I'm demonstrating - I hope that's something that'll encourage you to sign on and become my patron).



"Tamyrh Quarterly", my newsletter/zine, is a free way to get to know my work. Each issue contains necessary updates, appearances, etc., as well as a short story set in my world. It is released every October, January, April, and July.
At present (June 2019), I am 3 issues behind, so I'm hoping to create a big issue over the course of the summer.



That's it for my opening spiel. As far as posting creations go, I won't spam you; you'll see one a month. Thanks for reading this, and I hope it's enough to convince you to sign on.
Cheers,
J. I. Rogers

"Sound Check" AMA

When I reach this level, I'll open up and throw a virtual party on my discord channel. I am infamously reclusive in real-life, but for this, I'm willing to take down the 'sound barrier' and let people hear my voice. During this 'ask me anything' you'll be able to get my opinion on anything, from things in the series to the world we live in. Warning: my answers may differ from the views expressed by the characters in my series.
