So why am I doing a Patreon, and what do you get out of it?
Well, for one, I get to write, and you get to read, more--and more varied--fiction. Just for starters, with a successful Patreon, I'll need fewer small freelance jobs on the side, leading to more time for novels and short stories.
It's not just about more writing, though, but also about having more freedom in what I write. If I'm relying primarily on large publishers, I have to tailor most of my writing to what I think will interest a large publisher. If my Patreon is successful enough, I can spend some time on more experimental, less mainstream stuff. When I know there's already some money coming in, I can afford to do more work that I know might end up with smaller publishers or self-published.
And I want to share not just the results with you, but the process. I've got a variety of backer rewards that I think will interest a great many of you, and quite a few involve peeks behind the curtain.
So let's make this happen. And thank you so much for your support--not just here on Patreon, but in general. There are no professional authors without readers like you.
