Joseph Carrikeris creating Sacred Band World Fiction
Select a membership level
Basic patronage. Most posts will be available to you, although some of the higher tiers may gain access to some content first, particularly if I had to commission it.
Advanced patronage. You'll have access to everything that comes across the Patreon first and for sure.
You'll also be sent full ebook files of all new short stories, instead of just the raw text.
Elite patronage. You'll have access to everything that comes across the Patreon first and for sure. You'll also not only receive the ebook files for short stories, but will also receive copies of new Sacred Band books, autographed to you, when they release.
There may also be the occasional other goodie in the mail for you, with my thanks!
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:
- 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.
