I'm CB Droege. I'm an author and voice actor. I run Manawaker Studio, which is an independent small press. Some of what I post and publish is my own work, but many projects feature collaborations with other word and picture artists (most notably: Flash Fiction Podcast (also on iTunes), which is hosted by me, and features the best flash fiction I can drag out of contributors around the world, and is free to the listening public). In-the-works projects include graphic novels and more anthologies.

Patreon funding goes toward the cost of running Manawaker Studio (things like website hosting, copyediting, commissioning visual artists, paying anthology and podcast contributors, travel, media equipment, electricity, etc.)

With patron support, I can take on more projects, and spend more time creating clever stories and games and other media, and less time trying to figure out how to make money at it. Patrons have already been responsible for the creation of Manawaker Studio Recycled Comics, a weekly feature in which I create new stories out of old comic books. Like the podcast, these comics are available to everyone, thanks to my Patreon Patrons!

Patrons can receive a number of benefits beyond mere happy feelings, and the knowledge that it makes my free projects possible. At the right levels, Patronage works like a subscription to Manawaker Studio books. We don't publish on precise schedules, but a patron who supports at a subscription level will get every book we put out.

In addition, every patron has access to the private patron feed, which includes, among other things, original short fiction and poetry work, some of which will eventually make it into magazines and journals elsewhere, but much of which is written just for my patrons. You'll also find news and previews of upcoming projects and occasional personal musings. In addition, when I need beta-testers for games or beta-readers for stories, my patrons are the first folks I'll turn to in search of volunteers (no obligation on their part, though).

Finally, all patrons get access to comics and podcasts a couple days early whenever humanly possible.

I would super love it you decide that joining my small community of patrons has value to you, but if not, I sincerely hope you enjoy the projects that they make possible. Please follow my Patreon page to get notifications when new things are ready for public consumption!

Cheers,
CB

This is a perfect patronage level for someone who just likes to read my stories and comics and listen to my podcasts, and wants to help pay for the time it takes to create those things. This level is all that is required to gain access to the patron feed, which has great stuff like new stories, poems, and previews of upcoming projects. My patrons are always the first to find out when something great is happening with me or with Manawaker Studio, and they get content a couple days before the public, when possible.

Also, your assistance helps keep the websites ad free, and it buoys my spirits, allowing me to work with fewer mental fetters.

Super! At this patronage level, you'll get access to the Manawaker Studio digital catalog. You'll get copies of every digital product Manawaker Studio has published, and will receive all new digital products as they are released.
You'll also get access to the Patron feed as described above.

Extraordinary! Get all Manawaker books which are released during your time as a Print Subscriber in addition to access to the private patron feed.

Outstanding! This patronage level combines the 5$ and 10$ levels. In addition, you'll get a Manawaker t-shirt for being such a sweet fan!
Super Subscriber

Odds Bodkins! This level acts just like the Full Subscriber level, except the books you receive will be signed by CB. Other goodies may find their way to you periodically as well.
Manawaker Team Member
$50 or more per month 1 patron
Blatherin' Blatherskite! This level works just like Super Subscriber, except you will ALSO be given an invented honorary title within Manawaker Studio (with your input), which will be read during the Podcast, and added the website, and maybe listed in some other places also, wherever I can fit it in.
Goals
$68 of $75 per month
When we reach the 75$/month level, an expansion for Manawaker Studio's first card game, and most popular product ever, will be designed. I will put the same care toward the balance and design of these new cards, and will hire the services of the same artist, Curtis McCartney (if he is available at the time) to create the new dragons. All current patrons at E-Sub level and above at the time this goal is met will receive a copy of the expansion.
