My name is Michael Coorlim, author of nine science fiction and steampunk novels, co-founder of the production company Burning Brigid Media, producer of the Working Class Creatives interview podcast, and lead designer at RPG publisher Taoscordian Games. I was a finalist in the Chicago Reader's "Best Chicago Novelist" and "Best Fiction Novel" categories, and for the Parsec Awards "Best New Speculative Fiction Podcast or Team."

I am not good at capitalism, but I like making things and not being homeless.

My income is based entirely on the sales of my books, which can fluctuate quite a bit month-to-month. Some months I crack four figures, others I barely break three - it's a roller coaster made of terror and income insecurity. Patreon offers me an island of stability amid all the chaos - however my sales run that month, I know I have a guaranteed steady income from those who believe in me.

All it takes is a dollar a month.Twelve bucks a year to show your support, enabling me to keep creating the books, podcasts, and games that you enjoy. Fans can offer more support and get more in return, but even the minimal level puts something positive out there and encourages others to do the same.

Thank you for helping me survive to keep making the things that I make.

Goals
$66 of $100 per month
A hundred dollars a month covers a lot of little things that I need to keep making things. Web hosting, utilities, internet, PO Box rental, mailchimp, dropbox, it all adds up. A steady $100/month takes a load of stress off my shoulders.
