Thanks for stopping by, it's good to meet you! 

I'm John G. Hartness, and I'm a fantasy and horror writer, a small press publisher, a husband, and a father to one very overweight and needy cat. 

I write lots of different things, mostly novella length (30-40,000 words, or around 100-150 pages). I'm the author of The Black Knight Chronicles, a lighthearted urban fantasy series, the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter dark fantasy series, and the Bubba the Monster Hunter comedic horror series. I've also dabbled in high fantasy, Arthurian myth, science fiction, superhero novels, and poetry. Yes, poetry. 

I write for a living, and I attend around 20-30 conventions a year to speak on panels, meet fans, and sell books. I love traveling to new places, and I love getting the chance to meet fans, but convention travel is expensive. Even a small con costs upwards of $500 to get to, and the larger ones can run in the thousands. And that's not even considering conventions that require airfare! 

This Patreon page is to support my attendance at conventions, and allow me to continue to go places like DragonCon in Atlanta, Mysticon in Roanoke, LibertyCon in Chattanooga, as well as closer conventions like ConCarolinas, ConGregate, and Heroes Con. In 2017, I travelled to Awesome Con in Washington, as well as D.C., Penned Con and Archon in St. Louis, and and that was a drive and a half!

Your patron dollars go directly into the hotel, gas, and food fund to get me to these different places and give me the opportunity to meet fans all over the country. Maybe I can even make it to your town! 

So look around and see if you like my work. You can get access to exclusive Patron-only content for as little as $1 each month, and starting at the $5 level you'll really get some neat rewards. 

Thanks for stopping by, it's great to have you here.

Name a Monster or Victim!


Once a month, I'll do a drawing for all patrons at this tier and above, and you get to give me a name to use in one of my books! 

It might be a villain/monster, or it might be a victim. I'll let you know ahead of time. No politics or public figures, I don't want to get sued!

Plus you get all previous tier rewards!

Sasquatch Stompers

Monthly Short Story Subscription!


Every month I will write a short story, just for my patrons. It might be in one of the existing worlds, it might be something completely different. But it will be exclusive to you for at least six months, then I'll either sell it individually or package it together in a bundle and sell the ebooks. Either way, you get the ebooks free, too!


Plus all previous tier rewards!

Ebook Subscription Service! 

Want to read all my novellas and short stories before they hit the streets? Want to read my Amazon-exclusive books on other platforms? This is the tier for you!

Good, because you get ALL my Falstaff Books novella or short story releases BEFORE they go on sale to the public! And you can get them in PDF or ePub for Nook or other e-readers!

Plus all previous rewards!
Vampire Hunters
$20 or more per month 9 patrons
Super-Premium Subscription!

You get preview copies of everything I write before it goes to press. That means Bubba stories before they go on sale, Black Knight Chronicles novels before they go on sale, Quincy Harker novellas before they go on sale - EVERYTHING - you get it first, including any new novels that I release. 

Sound Bites! 
You'll also get a free audiobook download code from me every year, sometime around my birthday, because I like sharing the love!

And you get everything in every lower Patron Level!
Demon Hunter
$50 or more per month 1 of 10 patrons
This is premier tier. Hey that rhymed. 


For this level, you'll get a signed physical copy of any print book that of mine that I publish while you're a patron. Any Black Knight book, any Bubba collection, and Harker collection, any stand-alone book. For 2017, I plan to have around 4-5 print releases. If you want the book as a gift, just let me know, and I'll sign it to anybody you want. 


There aren't many of these available, because mailing books is expensive, and I don't get free author copies of most of my books, since I kinda own the publishing company for Bubba and Harker. :) 

Goals
$405 of $500 per month
When we get to $500 per month, I'll record another short story and make it available exclusively to Patrons for at least six months. I'll even let y'all suggest the story! 

So if you want to hear my dulcet tones read one of my short stories, get all your friends over here!
