You are amazing! I'll put a shout out on my Twitter and Instagram to thank you for your support. You'll also get access to short stories that I post here on Patreon. Want an eBook of my first novel, Benjamin Sorrow: One for Sorrow? It's yours ... free!
Wow! Thank you so much! In addition to Level 2 rewards. I'll share something from the novel or manuscript I'm currently working on. This might be a chapter to wet your whistle for things to come, or something I'd value your feedback on. I'll send you any eBooks that I publish during your patronage.
Hey! My name is Paul Challis, and I'll be your narrator for the next few minutes. This is my first time here, so be gentle with me. I'm a software developer by trade and an author by night (well, whenever I can write really). I live in the UK and have one novel published, which you can buy on Amazon, Google Books and a few other places as well (Hint: Become a patron and get a copy at different subscription levels). I've taken part in NaNoWriMo for the last couple of years and have two "in progress" manuscripts from that competition ready for some TLC.
What do I want to achieve?
I'd love to be able to reduce my hours at work over time so that I can focus some daylight hours on writing. Sometimes with a family and having to adult, it's hard to find the time to put pen to paper.
What are my current projects?
Aren't you also on YouTube?
Why, yes, I am! I have a channel here that I've been adding some content to over the last ten years or so, more so in the last two years. These are mostly build videos for projects I've undertaken, and I'll continue to do this as and when an idea comes to me. As anyone who makes YouTube content will know, it takes three times as long to make anything, when you have to light, film and edit, so I may also start adding some videos about my writing too.
This depends greatly on you guys. Your support for creators like myself is what drives us to create great things. You can see the content creators that I support from my profile and these are varied. Even if my Patreon doesn't float your ice cream sundae (a reference to my WIP), then I'd encourage you to search out other creators that do. Your support for any of us means the world.
Even if you don't patronize me (haha), thank you for taking the time to read my shpiel and even consider it. If you do want to throw some money at me, please take a look at the different levels available. These may change over time, so if nothing interests you, please contact me and let me know what might?
