Introduction

My name is Joshua Wilding and I'm writing fantasy novels set in the fictional world of Archaea, with the aim of creating an anthology of stand-alone novels, trilogies and collections of short stories that share narrative and lore. I've been inspired for the last 14 years by the works of Garth Nix, Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell, Trudi Canavan and Stephen Hunt, where fantasy bleeds into mystery, thriller, science fiction and just about every other genre you can think of. It is with this goal in mind that I ask for your support!

What am I offering?

My novel at the cheapest possible price for digital download. I don't believe in asking readers to fork out nearly £10 for a book, so your donations would go to keeping it and future titles at £1.99, because fantasy and fiction in general should be available for everybody no matter what their circumstances happen to be. If you bought the book and enjoyed it and want to contribute to the next novel or short story, I'm offering the following:

Q+A for all patrons, irregardless of tier. This means you can ask me any number of questions and you'll get a guaranteed response. They could be about me, about the novel, about a specific character or plot arc or simply about the process of writing, everything is fair game in my book!

Coming in at any tier will also give you access to the blog, where I post about my progress in writing the next story and generally waffle about the process and what has inspired me to that point. I'll even talk about the films and music, video games and books that inspired certain aspects of my world from time to time!

Coming in at $5 will give you access to monthly previews of upcoming stories as well as the Q+A. These previews will feature new chapters written for the next novel, new characters who you won't have seen before and storylines you might not be expecting. I will endeavour to keep these as spoiler free as I can but if that's simply not possible, then I'll instead write an article about the world my novels are set in, with the subject matter chosen by you, the patrons!

Coming in at $10, you'll recieve an A3 poster of the artwork that adorns the cover of my latest novel, along with a poster or posters of subsequent novels, for as long as you're a patron of mine. So that you can enjoy the paintings in full, we've removed the writing from the posters, giving you access to the full painting and all its intricacies.

What will your money by spent on?

Living from novel to novel can be difficult as an author, especially if personal circumstance means spending much more one month than you had planned. It's also a long process, so your money would go towards enabling me to live novel to novel, so that I might continue to write and entertain all of you. If you read this far down the page I can only thank you for taking the time to consider supporting me and my writing endeavours, it really means the world. If you decided to donate to me or even just share my page on social media, you're the best!

Welcome, everyone... to the Black Desert.
