I like sharing stories!

That's primarily why I'm here, so if you are taking a look around, thank you, and I hope you like what you see enough to consider becoming a patron. 

I'm currently focusing on three stories, described below.

N.A.P.E (Sci-fi/Comedy)

Post-event, the planet was devoid of the one element that used to keep it alive, people. What was generated under the surface though provided an answer, if a slightly unconventional one. Masses of metal, precious and otherwise, bubbled to the surface of the world. Having already reached a technological level that involved computers and worldwide network of shared knowledge, the big corporations of the world raced to produce machines with an intelligence that would enable the world to function and rebuild itself. 

Meanwhile, a separate group are building hybrid humans using gene splicing and cloning techniques to produce loyal and capable workers. They manage to achieve some impressive results, but the Animutes are not treated like people and that creates its own problems. 

The result was a whole new level of technology capable of working and operating as close to humans as possible. Unfortunately, the personalities they created were a little too realistic, and came with their own collection of neuroses and quirks. All of which can make for an interesting conversation with your coffee machine first thing in the morning.

A prototype replacement is under production by the programmers from the original development effort, but when it's creator dies, the replacement decides to take it's existence into it's own hand, and it escapes. Roger, an experienced, albeit, reluctant engineer, is asked to find the prototype, which leads to an intriguing mix of industrial espionage, personal feuds, and some interesting gadget therapy as he picks his way through humans and machines to find the right one. 

King's Courier (Fantasy)

Movo is a courier, ferrying messages and information between different parts of the city. Although only 14, he is a member of the most important guild; the one that keeps the engines of both the business and political worlds alive. He spends most of his days distributing messages between the different businesses in the city, everything from produce orders to alliances. As messenger, he is not only trusted with this information, but also privy to more about what is going on in the city than most. 

Movo helps a new girl, Tambil, who is new to the game and wants to learn the ropes. Tambil is from the north of the country and has never been in such a huge city before, never mind the desert. After a chance encounter with some soldiers at Mr Silverkin's estate, Movo and Tambil find themselves providing messenger services for an intriguing new client.

In the process, the two of them get caught up in a political game involving families new and old, and information known only to a woman that Movo must visit regularly near the East Sea. 

Bird in the Hand (Romance)

Love is never simple and sometimes we do not get to choose the people who we fall in love with. But what do you do when society prefers one model for love, and your heart prefers a different one? Following the lives of different people we will see how desire, connectivity, and society can create exhilarating and dangerous implications for modern love.  

What is your Patronage going to do for you?

Get you access to the stories and worlds I have in my head so that you can enjoy them. There are different patronage levels available. 

  • Want to just follow the story? The free tier will get you everything you need to get access to the main stories. 
  • Want some background info? Higher tiers provide additional character history, maps and other elements. 
  • Like to get involved and suggest ideas? Then become one of the inner circle and get involved in discussions and live chats. 
  • Need a new friend and intelligent (and funny) conversation? Then let's talk!

What is your Patronage Gonna do for me? 

The primary driver for me is to write these stories out there so people can enjoy them. I really enjoy writing but for a long time for me it has been a hobby. The idea is to have some focus and people looking over my shoulder to encourage me. Having people reading the stories and commenting on them is the main reason I'm here.  

About Me

My name is MC Brown and I've been writing for about 35 years, and in non-fiction am a heavily published author. I like in the UK, near Nottingham to be precise, and have a prediliction for coffee and travel, not necessarily in that order. 

If you want to know more, then please feel free to ask!

Thank you for your support, I will do my best to keep you entertained. You will get access to all the story text, core maps and artwork that I produce for the main stories. At this tier, you are going to get more or less the same as if you bought a finished book in the store. Except you'll get it in fragments. You will get the main stories and activities without missing the core threads and themes. This level ensures you will follow along.

A really generous offer, thank you! In addition to the core material, you will get access to the more detailed background stories, character histories, location and item information. Think of it as a guide to the worlds you are reading about giving you a better understanding of the worlds and environments I create. You will also get directly emailed content and access to photos, poetry and other content not accessible to others.

OK, so this is now at a level I had not expected, so thank you, and look forward to being part of the group that gets access to even more background material than in the above options. This also means that you will get to hear about upcoming events and themes in the stories as they evolve, and we'll try and have some intimate discussions about the new worlds through live chat and videos. Because we'll get to discuss the material before I've written it, you will also get the opportunity to suggest story lines, character names etc. The aim is to have one of these discussions each month, travel permitting, and we'll work out the best method to get together.

Since we'll be really close at this point, expect to get some off-the-wall random surprises, emails, how I work, and what's going on in my latest travels and adventures. This is your opportunity not just to get to know my characters and materials, but also me.

Honestly, I had no idea anybody would be willing to give me this much for anything, so at this point you are a member of a very exclusive club that just about gives you everything. All the material I produce, personal emails to get to know you, custom poetry, life lessons, postcards while on my travels, and original side stories and tales to keep your mouth watering at all the content. When I've got more of the stories finished I will do my best to bundle them up into a printed book for you which I will personally sign and send to you for you to keep.

I love coffee. But I don't just love any coffee, I love a very specific coffee bean. Jamaican Blue Mountain, which is very smooth and exclusive bean. I try to have one every morning as a guilty pleasure, but also to help start the day and feed my brain.
