You can get all of my Patreon-only posts, which will include:
- Regular updates on my writing progress
- Patreon-only videos where I talk about the themes and processes that go into my writing.
Whenever I'm working on a new novel for self-publishing, backers at this level will get to download PDF files of the raw, unedited chapters as they come. Experience the adventure before anyone else!
Note: While plenty is liable to change between a first draft and a final book, I would ask that patrons be respectful and not post spoilers before a book is finally released.
I like to say that I write "rock and roll"; exciting adventure stories where flawed heroes take on compelling and formidable villains. My tagline, that I write "stories to show that monsters can be beaten" really exemplifies why I think stories, regardless of their format, are important. When so much around us is negative, whether it's war, the economy, trying to make ends meet, or just seeing people suffer, I think it's important to remind ourselves that good people can make a difference, and if enough people take a little time to do something good for someone else, the world can become better.
No-one should be treated differently because of the colour of the skin, their gender, sexual orientation, their faith, or their lack of faith. I try to carry this into my writing, and some of my favourite characters to write are those who break typical gender roles.
With your support, I'll be able to commit more time to writing, pursuing both traditional publishing and self-publishing, so the more funds I receive, the more books and bonus content I can release.
