I started podcasting my stories in 2006 and I found early and unexpected success. Soon thereafter, I published a book about a haunted space station and another book about a giant space tree and these books made a big enough splash to grace the Amazon best-seller lists. I was poised to really start cranking. But inevitably, life happens and I took (a lot of) time off. 2017 brought Patreon and a new path. I’ve found a way to write and podcast and generate income to support my family all at the same time. To me, Patreon is about not just giving but giving back ten-fold. That’s why each month I put in everything I’ve got to deliver as much content as I can manage.
It’s simple. It's about getting the work out there to all of you. It's hard to justify making time to write, edit, and publish when it takes times away from activities that help me pay the bills and put food the table, etc...It's even more difficult to justify hiring an editor, paying web server and domain fees, and file server costs, and generally making any investment to support my writing long-term when it takes away from what I need to do for my family. Patreon frees up time and resources so I can create new stories and podcasts
Why to Expect?
New podcast fiction delivered at least twice a month. This includes The Trance (Vampire Cyberpunk) Far Stones (Sci Fi), the upcoming novel Eden:Eternity (Sci Fi), Friday Flash Fiction, and so much more. Subscribers receive a monthly behind the scenes podcast. Live video streams of writing sessions, audio, and video production. There will be other extras to provide you with some tingly atmosphere leading up to story releases--missing person articles, maps, love notes, voice mails, music. I have a passion for creating a sense or (alt)reality surrounding my work. I cut my teeth on the Infocom interactive fiction games and I think that's where my love of "extras" began. I still have my Planetfall packaging and goodies. Subcribers can also expect excerpts for works in progress. Early releases. Exclusives--in short, there will be bang for your buck.
You will also get your name printed in any book I publish in the future in a special acknowledgments section.
