M.D. Grayson is creating Mystery Novels
8

patrons



Hi - thanks for visiting my Patreon page and joining the M.D. Grayson fan community.  I'm Mark Grayson and I write Seattle-based mystery novels.  Over the past six years, I've released five novels  in ebook and paperback formats.  This summer (2018), I'll release #6 entitled The Seattle Shuffle.  I'm proud to say that I have more than 6,300 reviews on Goodreads and nearly 3,000 reviews on Amazon - the overwhelming majority 4 or 5 stars.  

I've decided to work with Patreon to create a fan-based organization for two primary reasons.  First, by joining my Patreon organization, you'll be providing me the freedom to write full time and accelerate the pace of my deliveries.  The modern digital paradigm for authors rewards those who can be highly productive.  Unless you're fortunate enough to already be an "A-List" author, it's no longer okay to release just one book per year.  Today's ebook readers are voracious!  When they discover an author that they like, they snap up all of that author's backlist and "binge-read" until they're through.  Then, they anxiously await the next release.  This new approach to book-buying strongly favors those authors who have a large existing backlist and who can quickly turn out new titles.  And that's where my Patrons come in.  By joining my Patreon organization, you're giving me the freedom to write full time.  Doing this, I hope to release four new novels each year - maybe more.

The second major reason for forming a Patreon organization is to help fund on-going marketing efforts.  The big publishers are relentless marketers.  I spend what I can on marketing, but it falls well short of the amounts that the major publishers spend on each of their books.  Fortunately, my positive reception rate is very high - nearly 90% of my readers rate me at either 4 or 5 stars on Amazon. Those that see my work, like it.   My problem is that I simply need more people to find out about it.  In order to do that, I need higher, more consistent levels of marketing.    

The modern digital publishing paradigm presents a fantastic opportunity for authors and readers alike.  I mean, where else can you go and get a full length novel - several hours (maybe days) of entertainment for $2.99?  I think that delivering quality, affordable, high-value entertainment like this is a worthwhile cause.  Those of you who join me will help further this cause.  You'll help me present more of my work to a bigger audience.  In so doing, you will have my sincere thanks and you will receive the M.D. Grayson Patron's Newsletter.  HIgher levels will recieve advance copies of my work in digital format, plus signed paperback and hardbacks.  If I hit my goals, I'll add in merchandise from the M.D. Grayson store.  (See the Rewards Section on the right for more details).
