Every month that pledges total over $100, I will hold a drawing for all patrons at the $5 level or higher, and give away something that I've created.

Greetings, fellow humans. Currently I'm a full-time office chair occupant doing clever things with computers, but before I joined the ranks of the reluctantly employed I was writing a steady 3,000 words of fiction every single day, seven days a week. I'd turn out a new 400-page novel every three months.

The problem with being a creative person while also programming computers full time is that I use all my mental energy on the programming. These days most of my writing is for my blog, where I write about a wide variety of topics such as my experiences growing up in religion and leaving it as an adult, science, my cars, and food.

But it's a lot more than writing. I want to create in every way I can, from carpentry to music, metal casting to podcasting. I already have a wide variety of projects going, I just need time and energy to finish them.

If I can begin earning a reliable income from writing and other creative work, I can reduce my reliance on employment and put more energy into creating the things I've already imagined. So if you can spare a dollar or two each month, or five, or ten, it all adds up and helps me increase the quality and frequency of new stuff.

Warm fuzzy feelings, because you're helping to support an independent artist, and that makes you awesome. Also, there will be occasional special content only for patrons.

The coupons and free stuff mentioned above, plus a (unisex) t-shirt designed by my incredible artistic brother (one-time gift after your first payment). Make sure you let me know what size shirt you need, or I'll send you a giant one.

All the other goodies, plus an autographed physical copy of every new book I publish.
