Hello, I'm Jo M Thomas and I'm into science fiction, fantasy and horror. Amongst other things, I'm the author of 25 Ways To Kill A Werewolf and co-editor of the Fox Spirit Book of European Monsters and the Fox Spirit Book of African Monsters.

This Patreon is currently dedicated to a work in progress (WIP) called Under Smoke City, which is a steampunk piece heavily based on Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood with the aim of reproducing the rhythms of the much loved original but with a different story and spin in the finished product. I'm actually using The Definitive Version published by Orion Publishing (ISBN09780753810491) as my source text but I diverge rather swiftly after the first voice's part makes way for the other characters. As I'm not Welsh, the idioms and accent will change, too, so the first voice is probably more Richard Sharpe than Richard Burton. (No, that isn't a goal. I doubt we can afford Sean Bean to voice the finished product.)

I'll be updating the content every other Monday, releasing a passage at a time with the whole being gathered under the Passage tag and you can also find a previous draft of the first paragraph on my website here. There are teasers for all the backers, so that you can have a taste of what's to come as thanks for your support, and some apocrypha that don't fit in the Under Milk Wood framework I'm using for the main piece. The higher tier backers get a few more perks with respect to background information such as what I'm currently working on with this WIP and where I think we're heading.

Thank you for coming and I hope you enjoy Under Smoke City.

The basic backer package is a simple reward - you get access to a teaser post with the first few paragraphs of the next passage (and some related background details) a couple of days in advance. You'll also get access to any stories and scenes that occur to me that don't fit in the main piece as it's developing (the apocrypha).

The second-level package adds WIP updates - meaning you'll also see a post every time I do some work - so you'll know exactly where I'm up to. And maybe even help me pick out new names and story directions when I put out polls.

The third-level package is for the person who wants to know what's going on behind the WIP as well as where I am with it and the latest passages. You'll help me shape my goals by receiving polls about possible expansions and be involved in discussion on posts about publishing the finished product. I may have to change people's names to protect the innocent, but you'll get updates on all the business moves.
