Hey everybody! I'm Morgan Woods, a freelance writer since 2009 who is working toward publishing his first fantasy novel. I work full-time and attend college on the weekends while writing every night, to perfect my upcoming story. While this is my creation, I love receiving thoughtful feedback from fans and often get them involved in the writing process with me. My favorite thing about writing is world-building. I want to bring you a deep cultural experience that will last several novels within the same universe. For now, I'm calling this series the Sages' Sanctum Series. As time passes, maybe I'll reach out to you all for input. 

What is the Sages' Sanctum Series?
The series takes place across an island chain after a natural disaster has left a country struggling to recover. The first book follows the refugees years after the disaster, as they settle into their new life. The narrative follows the perspectives of several different people from different classes and backgrounds to fill in the gaps of an overarching turmoil. 

At the center of the story is Lumen Maurer, a teenage refugee who is thrust into the workforce. His arrival to Avia is met with lavish festivities, welcoming troves of incoming students who fall prey to a nationwide investigation. Lumen must continue his life in school as normal, while leaders work to resolve more pressing issues. 

Why Patreon?
Bills, mostly. Between medical debt, student loan debt and regular everyday bills, I'm just looking to become more financially stable. Personally, I have epilepsy and can't drive on my own. I'm lucky enough to have a loving wife who drives us everywhere and a flexible job that allows me to work from home, but I've had a few incidents in the past where a seizure has put me out of work for some time. While I'm currently comfortable with my monthly needs being taken care of, I'm looking to get more of those costs covered so I can focus on becoming debt-free and start building the family lifestyle we're used to. And that's it. I'm not looking to replace my day job. I'm happy where I am and I feel great with what I do. I just have a passion for writing that I've been longing to get out for years and I hope you all can support me through it.

What do you receive from pledging?
For $5/ month all patrons will receive access to all chapters as they come out. I'm dedicated to publishing a chapter a month. I'll post a password protected link to my personal Wordpress, where I'll house all of my content. 

For those of you willing to contribute $10 and more, I'll be posting additional content ranging from drawings (I dabble, I'm not amazing), background stories, outlines, deleted scenes, sneak peeks, etc that will be made available in a separate members area of my website. 

For the brave, willing to contribute $20 or more, I'll be looking to you for actual feedback and input. I'll hold polls regarding character names, direction of storyline, themes, etc. Those who contribute in feedback, I'll even be sure to mention you in the acknowledgements. 

If there's a demand for it, I'll add a higher tier that includes physical merchandise. 

But most importantly of all, you receive my thanks! Knowing that there are fans and supporters of my work helps me keep going. I look forward to hearing from all of you!
