About J. Zachary Pike

I'm Zack, a full-blown geek and part-time author.

I write fantasy humor / satire with a financial twist. I daresay I'm the biggest financial fantasy satire author writing today. That is not as difficult as it sounds, sadly.

I set up this Patreon to help me write full-time some day. That's a lifelong dream. 

But the reality is I'm a long way off from earning enough from my writing to cover the mortgage and feed the kids. (Hence the day job.) So in the meantime, I plan to use any money I earn from the stream to commission book-related artwork for advertising / etc. I'll make that artwork available to supporters as wallpapers as I commission it (any support level).

I'm also going to post more author-centric things here, like my thoughts on writing process and the business of writing part time. I always love sharing that sort of thing, and here's the place I'm going to do it.

You should support me if:

  • You're a fan of my books and feel like leaving a tip
  • You want to get occasional inside scoops on how I independently publish and what I think about the state of the industry
  • You're hoping I will (someday) start writing full time. 

If any or all of those describe you, I am incredibly grateful for any support you can give.
