Tiers
My new best friend
$2 or more per month
Little Maggie here is a good friend, but, you know, she's tight with a dollar. Chances of getting two bucks out of her? Fuggedaboutit! But for two bucks a month, you're in. As I write each chapter, you get it here. As each volume is published, you get the ebook. But you'll also get lots of cool things that don't make it into the final, published copies. Short fiction. Character studies. The secret podcast when we crack a thousand patrons.
My new favourite.
$5 or more per month
Choc chip cookies used to be my favourite, but that was before you. For a lazy fiver-a-month you get to see the entire process. Planning, editing, re-writes, artwork. The lot. You watch the series created from the inside. And of course, you get the finished chapters and completed ebooks as they're ready and the podcast when it goes live.
Master of the Narrative Universe
$8 or more per month
You talked and pestered and—lets be honest—a few of you even made some chilling threats accompanied by photographs of my home address. So I listened. I'm opening this reward level for anyone who missed out on the top tier but still wants to get in on the story telling action. I can't give away naming rights to any more characters, but I can let you have contributor privileges, i.e., at this level you can get all previous rewards AND you can write yourself into the canon. A scene in one of the main novels, or a whole story published in a companion anthology with any royalties split between the contributors.
You're in the book now!
$10 or more per month
Maybe you always wanted to save the world? Hell, maybe you always wanted to destroy it? Achievement Unlocked! Now you can. On this tier, you get all previous rewards, PLUS you get to be a character in the story. Or you can gift your character to somebody else. If you really really want to live this story, you can even write yourself into it. Seriously. Knock up a scene or a short story and I'll thread it into the narrative with all the appropriate acknowledgements.
