I wake up every day while it's still dark and write for an hour before I do my chores. My wife brings me a mug of coffee and I tap out as many words as I can manage before the clock strikes 6 and I have to head out to milk the cows. This averages out to about 500 words a day, which isn't much.

Conventional wisdom would suggest that an indie author needs to publish frequently in order to make a living at his craft. This is the reason why many authors choose to serialize their work, but personally, I find serialization to upset quite a number of readers. They want to read THE END rather than TO BE CONTINUED.

While I don't plan on serializing my stories, I do realize that there are some fans out there that enjoy that format. There are also folks out there that want to support their favorite creators beyond purchasing books and leaving reviews. And that's why I've turned to Patreon.

I want to spend more time writing and less time chasing clients and working all hours to make ends meet. I'm hoping that there are a few readers out there that would like to help me see that dream fulfilled. If you'd like to help me, please take a look at my rewards and throw whatever you can into the hat. I would deeply appreciate it.
