Tribesman
$5 per month
You just think I'm a rad dude and want to help me out a bit. You will also enjoy access to (and hopefully enjoy reading) every short story published heretofore, as well as a digital copy of my debut novel 'There Is Life in the Tree and Death in the Well'.
Thegn
$7 per month
You will receive access to my work as soon as it's finished, straight off the press, piping hot with flaws and plot holes.
Jarl
$10 per monthonly 47 left
Everybody's a critic. In addition to being able to view my work as soon as it becomes available, you will now be able to offer feedback. For any story or poem that you review and critique, you will be credited as a sponsor.

This also includes beta access to all forthcoming digital media releases, primarily interactive text-based games created using the Twine branching-narrative software.

As an added bonus, you'll get a sneak preview upon request of what I'm working on next.
Runesmith
$15 per month
You can request greater detail or background information on what inspired a piece of your choice. This may include heretofore unknown (except to me) details of the setting, revelations of the white spaces on the map, or clarification on where the story went after its text ran out.
Seer
$25 per month
Put your oracular powers to the test and give me a little inspiration! Do you have an idea for a minor character, a setting detail or location? Tell me what you've foreseen and I'll be sure to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy. Whether in the next short story or novel, in one of the behind-the-scenes info drops here on the Patreon or as an element in one of the many project I have planned, your idea will make it in! Not only will you be notified of its inclusion, but I'll make sure everyone else knows it too!
Odd Bedfellows
$35 per monthonly 25 left
You will receive an invite to have a story personally workshopped by me and any others who pledge this amount, as well as an invite to the Odd Bedfellows Discord server.
Giantkin
$50 per month

Ever want your name recorded for all time? Like on a monument? I can't do you that much, but I can make sure that somewhere on the Internet you will be listed forever as having made something possible.


In short: You'll get a shout-out for your patronage in the dedications of any and all forthcoming projects.

Titan
$100 per month
Your generosity knows no bounds, and I may only do you homage. Truly.

You will not only receive every previous tier benefit, but also a free copy of all forthcoming releases.

There is little else I can do to repay this kind of support. It is a level of patronage that I will remember for many years to come.
