I’ve tried and failed (rather spectacularly!) over the past few years to make a living writing. I’m not quite sure why I didn’t give up… Nevertheless, here I am, and I’ve found a crack to slip through.

On May 6, 2018, I started a Medium account and started posting essays focusing on the intersection of pop culture and politics. To my surprise, it took off. I write fiction as Harrison Kitteridge and had a Patreon account with 0 patrons under that name. My success on Medium has led me to relaunch it as Kitanya Harrison. As the header states, I’ll be producing essays.

My patrons will have first-look access to essays I’ll eventually share on Medium as well as access to exclusive, patron-only essays. I’ll also share patron-exclusive blog posts that are a bit more personal. I’ve branched out from pop culture and write a lot about the deteriorating political situation in the United States, the rise of fascism, the failure of capitalism, and I’ve committed to talking more about climate change. I also write about sports from time to time. How racism and sexism play into these issues are themes I return to often.

My fiction explores some of the issues I address in my writing on politics and culture. I thought my patrons might enjoy a different tone and perspective from me, so I’m giving my pair of Sherlock Holmes novels away as rewards. They are set in a near future in which social networking is government-mandated and is pushing detectives into obsolescence. I’m quite anxious about the surveillance apparatus we’re all participating in, and that’s what drove me to write the books. Here’s the trailer for Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Paper Journal (I’m also giving patrons the prequel, Before Holmes Met Watson):

OK, Moneybags...
$20 or more per month
Thanks for even considering this tier. I'm not going to add any more rewards, because I don't want people to feel like I'm pricing them out. Also, I'm not sure what to offer... This tier is just a reminder that you're not limited by the amounts I propose. If you feel like making it rain on me, I'd greatly appreciate it! There should also be a custom pledge option you can take advantage of below to choose your preferred amount.
Goals
19 of 50 patrons
When I reach  50 patrons, I'll be ecstatic, and you'll have contributed to my book-buying and movie renting budget for my essay series.
