With the release of my first novel, Sacred Band, there is still quite a lot of story to tell - not only that of the Band itself, but of the world in which they live, love, and fight for what's right. This is where we tell some of those other stories.

This Patreon will include short bits of vignette or serialized fiction, background materials for the world and characters, roleplaying game tie-ins, and all kinds of other things Sacred Band related. Among them will be the hints and clues about what the future books in the Sacred Band series hold, as well as day-in-the-life vignettes for the characters in this world. The regular features and rewards for this Patreon are as follows:

General Access
  • Blog Posts: Sacred Band specific, as well as general content on superheroes, queer media, and my own appearances at conventions and other events.
  • Writing Updates: Talking about the progress of Sacred Band and related material.
  • Sacred Band Texts: Short bursts of fiction, presented as texts traded between Sacred Band characters.
  • Rave Reviews: Excerpted or whole reviews of Sacred Band material.
  • Merchandise: Posts with links to new Sacred Band merchandise.

Echoes Tier ($1 per month)

All Public Access content, plus:
  • Roster Articles: Detailing the important people of the Sacred Band setting.
  • Fiction Polls: Vote to help me choose which short story or novella to write next!

  • Artwork: Sacred Band artwork that I commission will be sent to all Originals patrons.
  • Novel Excerpts: Short excerpts of work-in-progress on my current Sacred Band novels. No real spoilers; just enough to whet the appetite!
