Greetings story lovers! Thank you for visiting my Patreon Page.

Now that I've finished grad school, I can focus on the writing I want to do. I've thought long and hard about what I want to offer people who support my Patreon. In the coming weeks, here are the weekly features I'll be adding to this page.

  • MONDAY NOIR: Mondays I will post chapters of The Slightly Above Average Misadventures of Greenrise and Sunback. This is a science fiction noir story that's kind of a cross between The Goonies and Fringe. (Patrons will get access to chapters a week early. Read Chapter One.
  • ROUGH-DRAFT WEDNESDAY: This is exactly what it sounds like. I post rough drafts of whatever project I'm working on. Currently, that's Halloween Jack and the Red Emperor. Anyone can read the Prologue and Chapter One. Patrons can read Chapter Two.
  • FLASH FICTION FRIDAY: I post a bunch of Flash Fiction stories inspired by green level supporters and above. These will be available for everyone to read.
  • SHORT STORY SATURDAY: Just what it sounds like. I'll be posting short stories on Saturdays. These will be available for patrons only.
  • Finally, through the month of October, for each new patron, or for each patron who upgrades their support level, I will post chapters from my MFA thesis, titled HUSH. Read the first two sections, " Life Cycle of a Piece of Paper" and " Lies Told on the First Day of Homecoming Week." The rest of HUSH will be available for patrons. Warning: While HUSH is mostly a story about children and teens, it contains mature themes. It is not appropriate for all readers.
That's quite a bit of awesome reading... if I may be bold enough to say so myself. I hope you'll support my adventures in writing. Every bit helps.

Thank you. Every bit helps.


GRAY level supporters get access to most Patron only content.

White
$2.50 or more per novel chapters and short stories. 3 patrons
Thank you! This really helps support my coffee habit. Which keeps me writing more. Every month, I'll give out an ebook for free, sometimes stories that aren't available to the public yet. These will be available to White level supporters and above.
Green
$5 or more per novel chapters and short stories. 3 patrons
Super thank you! Now I can grab some junk food along with my coffee. You have no idea how much this helps my creative process.


In addition to the previous levels, I will write Green level supporters their very own Stopwatch Story every month. They will also have access to essays, thoughts, and musings about writing and storytelling.

Blue
$10 or more per novel chapters and short stories. 5 patrons
Super-duper thank you! I can now have a writing session at my favorite pub where I wrote the first words of fiction I ever got paid for. I love writing there.


In addition to GREY, WHITE, and GREEN levels, BLUE level patrons, will receive all books in hard copy published after supporting at BLUE, with no extra charge for a signature.


Also, I will write BLUE level patron's monthly flash fiction story by hand on parchment paper and mail them.

Also, BLUE patrons will become immortalized via a Tuckarization, that is a character named after them, in one of my existing series. 

PURPLE
$20 or more per novel chapters and short stories. 3 of 5 patrons
Oh...wow... Mere words cannot express my thanks for supporting at this level. 


In addition to the rewards for all other levels, PURPLE level patrons will receive a proof copy of all my self-published novels after their initial support. I only receive a limited number of proof copies per book.


Also, in addition to writing PURPLE level patron's monthly flash fiction story by hand, I will also record it in an audio file in my awesome storyteller's voice.

Goals
$100 – reached! per novel chapters and short stories.
Once my Patreon reaches this goal, I will be able to pay for most of my coffee intake during a month. I'm still working on an idea for what to offer you guys for helping me realize my dream of worry-free caffeine consumption.

If we reach this goal in November 2017, I will post a series of short essays and creative non-fiction stories about life as a street performer. This series of essays will give you a behind-the-scenes, backstage, pull-back-the-curtain look at the life of a street performer, ranging from the general to specifically my experiences as a storyteller. 

Aside from that specific reward for meeting the goal, all Patrons by the end of November will receive each volume of Stopwatch Stories in electronic format, including the Omnibus.

All patrons by the end of November will be tuckerized in my work in progress, The Slightly Above Average Misadventures of Greenrise and Sunback. That is, they will have a character in the book named after them.

BUT WAIT!!! THERE'S MORE!!!

If we meet this goal by the end of November, I'll start posting audio recordings of my readings of some of the short stories I post to the Patreon. Fans of my storytelling show will tell you, I spin a pretty good yarn.
