Hello and thank you for visiting. I am Ken Bailey, author of the Alice Dippleblack series and hopefully more to come. I've enjoyed writing since I was a teenager but have only recently come to see it as a possible career. With the internet and self-publishing options, becoming a professional writer seems to be put evermore into the hands of writers themselves. Excited by the possibilities, I began writting Alice Dippleblack's story.

A bit about Alice: My first series began very simply and without much direction, as some may notice. Alice Dippleblack was originally meant to be perhaps two novels long and tell the story of a few young girls, from very different walks of life, surviving in their war torn world. While the men fight each other off along the borders of the prime nations, Arsalia and Feoria, the many unusual and sometimes dangerous creatures native to their world flourish, causing problems for those left behind. The girls were meant to solve those problems, often under the guise of monster hunters, while keeping on the move, ever one step ahead of the feared Order of Thermathrogi.

So the series would go, highly influenced by my love of video games, the girls would form their classic dungeon crawler party and face off monsters for grateful towns folk while occasionally beating back the ever encroaching grasp of the Order.

But as I wrote, the story changed. The characters developed, their world grew, and after six books, I for one am very pleased how it turned out.

Why Patreon? I've been working very hard to make Alice's adventures available across different mediums. Currently the stories are available on Amazon for Kindle as well as other sites such as Fiction Press. Paperbacks (likely from CreateSpace) and Audiobooks are also now available. I'm trying to keep the prices as low as I can and the Audiobooks I'I'm even putting on YouTube for free, so I'm making this patreon for those who would like to support my efforts.

I will try to create some nice little rewards to thank you for your support, perhaps even pulling bits from Alice's world into our own.

Goals
$9 of $200 per month
My current primary goal is to raise enough to pay the talented illustrator of Alice Dippleblack, Connie Walker, to continue working with me to make more wonderful covers for my new series, "Monica's Modern Magic." Among other images to help promote and bring more of my work to life.

I'm doing my best to insure my writing is worthy of her art.
