HI, I'M NATHAN


I'm publishing HELIX Episode 6 and I need your help :)


UPDATE: Episode 6 is successfully funded, thank you!
(Please note: your contributions are for one book only, not monthly payments!)


G'day and welcome to my Patreon page! If you're reading this, then chances are you already know me. :)

But if you don't, my name’s Nathan Farrugia and I’m a technothriller author from Melbourne, Australia. I’m also known for placing myself in unnecessarily dangerous situations, including being hunted by special forces trackers and hanging from rooftops in Russia. I study Systema, a Russian martial art, and I’m a former Australian recon soldier trained by USMC, SEAL team, Spetsnaz and Defence Intelligence instructions.


WHAT IS THIS FOR?


After my publisher's imprint shut down last year, I ventured out on my own to self-publish a new episodic techno-thriller series, Helix, with plenty of action, conspiracies and cool ladies. And I intended to pay for it all myself.

I spent the last year working on this nine-episode series, going beyond my publisher's initial budget and investing $20,000 of my own to bring these books to life. Some of it came from my book sales, but most of it from my own pocket. I'm very happy with the five episodes so far. The sixth episode is written and ready to go, and I couldn't be more excited about continuing. But unfortunately I've found myself out of funds. And that's why I'm here...

Patreon helps people support the artists they love so they can continue to make all of the extremely cool things they can make. If for some reason you are one of those amazing people who want to be a part of making this possible, by pledging $1, $5 or even $10 to help me publish Episode 6, then I would be honored to have you on board and I would like to give something back to you in return for your generosity and support.

What does Episode 6 need right now? It needs editing and cover design.

As you can see on the rewards panel, I've set up rewards so anyone can buy my episodes, including Episode 1 for just $1, and even pre-order Episode 6. This is a once-only payment, not a monthly thing. And you are only charged once, when I have completed Episode 6.

This way, your dollars go directly toward making Episode 6. You get the books sooner and I get the funds sooner, and Episode 6 gets published!

How cool is that?


WHAT IS HELIX?




When spy hunter Olesya crosses paths with rogue operative Sophia, they become unlikely allies in the midst of a war between a covert agency and a radical anti-genetics movement. Helix is an action-packed cross between Dark Angel and Jason Bourne.

Helix comprises nine episodes, each about 150 to 200 pages long. So far, I’ve published five and the reception has been more amazing than I could have imagined.


If you want to read the first chapter, head on over to:
https://nathanmfarrugia.com/helix/

If you're new to this, then the $1 reward is an excellent place to start. In exchange for your dollar, you get Episode 1. Or you could go for the higher reward and get even more episodes!


PUBLISHING HELIX




In the past year, I've published the Helix series to the utmost quality that I can possibly achieve. Most authors and many publishers will likely think I'm insane for doing that. And hey, they're probably right! But I stand by my belief that if I'm going to write a story that will entertain you, I'm going to give you the best story possible. And you shouldn't accept any less than that.

The price of this quality is $2,000 per episode. These costs are fairly typical for a book of this size and they comprise editing and cover design. But I've negotiated an extremely good bulk deal with my editors that keeps my editing costs down to half what they charge other authors and publishers.

But the fact is I've left you on a cliffhanger with Episode 5, and I really want to get Episode 6 out to you as soon as possible...


HOW CAN YOU HELP?




For $1, you can order the Episode 1 ebook!

Or for $5, you get three episodes!

And for $10, you get all five episodes and Episode 6.

Whatever you choose, you're saving money and it's going directly into publishing Episode 6.


WHAT ARE THE FUNDS USED FOR?




Cover design: $1,000
Editing: $800
Formatting: Free (I do this myself)
Typesetting: Free (I do this myself)
Publishing: Free (I do this myself)
Patreon fee: 5%
Processing fees: 2%
Total for Episode 6: $1,926

As well as the books you get for your contribution, you’ll also get an inside look into how the Helix episodes are made, and even a voice in making them!

If you can’t afford to spare any money, then I don’t want you to spend it on me. You can keep supporting me by reading my books and suggesting them to anyone who will like them. That means the world to me. :)

But if you'd like to contribute to Episode 6, then hit that big orange button and BECOME A PATRON!

Cheers from down under!
