patrons

Man, I'm so excited to be here! Back when I was a college student, I dreamed about finding a patron whose support would enable me to pursue a fiction writing career. Instead, I had to get a job. 20 years later, I've managed to write some books and make a living as a writer and editor (among a lot of other things), but that concept of a patron still makes me squeal with joy. And by "squeal with joy" I mean sob like a toddler whose cracker broke.

I've always been obsessed with names. Ever since I was a small child I've pored over name books, studying the connections and origins of names. And naming a character is about the best thing there is. So I'm excited to launch a new project called Taking Names—a collection of short stories, each featuring a different character (name). I want your input, too, so if you're able to support me at $5 a month or more, you get to suggest names and even specific words and themes for me to use. I can't wait to have you join me in creating this project, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for even considering it!
