March Notice (3/31/15): I switched to "By creation" instead of "By month" so no one would be charged for March, since March kinda got away from me. In April I'll change it back and it'll be back to normal. Thanks everyone! 

I want to tell you cool stories about awkward bedroom eyes elementals, magical girls all-grown-up, and . . . trash magic!

All new Trash Romance stories will be released for free online at trashmance.com. But to do that, I need your support. Your contribution makes it possible for me to ensure only the highest potency trashmancer cuteness available without a prescription reaches you, the reader. It will also entitle you to a monthly digest in the DRM-free eReader format of your choice (.mobi, .epub, .pdf, .html) that collects all of that month's stories in one place. Contributors will also be able to ask questions to be answered by future stories, request themes or scenarios for characters to find themselves in (romantically or otherwise), contribute ideas to the world's lore, or suggest wrenches to throw into the characters' plans.

My goal is to make each new story interesting on its own, featuring a recurring cast of queers in love. While some plot threads will connect multiple stories, this is not intended to be a "serialized novel". I'm running this on a monthly basis rather than a per-story basis because that way I can write each story the length it needs to be, rather than trying to hit a specific artificial benchmark.

Trash Romance
The coolest thing about magic? Duh, it's magic. The worst thing about magic? It's magic. No one understands how the fuck it works. Yet for Mackenzie Chen, whose magic power is limited to manipulating the broken, cast-off junk of society, it's hard to not feel the world owes her an explanation. Or an apology. But when she meets magical girl-turned-barista Natalie, she learns just how valuable broken things can be.

Equal Parts "Aww...", "D'aww!" and "Unf~"
If you want a good sense of my writing style, I point you toward the Delmyria short stories already available "Mercy Killing the Dragon" and "The Last Warband", "Parts: Part 1" (available free on tumblr), or for those who crave more cuteness, my stories on AO3.

You can also check out my text-based games, Player 2 and Reset, on my website.

Trashmancers, Mechanomorphs, and Thanaturges!
So, the core of this is Trash Romance. That will be available no matter what. But if enough folks contribute to make it financially viable, I will also claw back my steampunk body transformation love story "Parts" from the spambots that clogged up the original site. And better still, anyone who contributes will have free access to any of my self-published Tales of Delmyria via DRM-free digital download (.mobi, .epub, .pdf, or .html). Set in my original fantasy setting of Delmyria, the Tales stories focus on the people and places that are mentioned but not featured in my Chronicles of Delmyria novels. You'll also receive a copy of any new Tales that I publish while you are a supporter.

Please don't do this. But seriously, if you do, I will directly solicit your request for a NSFW scene prompt each month. (Absolutely no non-consent, though.) Also, if I'm in your area for an event, we'll meet up for coffee or something and you get a hug.
Goals
$104 of $196 per Chapter
Each month, at least one story will get dialed up to Very [NSFW] territory. (Also, I can afford daily expenses)
