Forgive Me for Not Posting
 
Forgive me for not posting for the past several days.  I have been working extra hours at my day job.  I would have to do that less with your support for my work! ;)  Don't forget that all Patrons get an automatic discount at my Etsy shop, access to Patron-only features and content, and all kinds of extra benefits, especially when milestones are reached.


It has been suggested to me that perhaps I am doing too much under one banner.  Are you going to get value for your dollar if I spend the whole month doing witchy stuff, when you're a geeky-stuff fan?  I would answer that I produce a lot of creative output -- several times almost everyone else I know -- so I think it balances out in the wash.


If that still doesn't convince you, I would say that perhaps you might want to consider a smaller Patronage then?  If you would have contributed $5, contribute $2 and see if it was worth your effort.


New Etsy discount code is going up for Patrons today.  It's a little higher than it was last month.  So now's a great time to show your support!  Thanks.

Landsman (Beta Reader)
$1 or more per month 6 patrons
Get first access to my work! This includes a digital download of every work of fiction I release and your name listed in the acknowledgements.  I consider your opinion when I make my final edit.  You also get draft chapters and deleted scenes from time to time. 
Ordinary Seaman (Audio Access)
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
This one is intended specifically for my differently-abled readers! Get an audio file of each story or chapter, read by yours truly, in place of the digital downloads!  From time to time this will mean an actual professionally produced audiobook as well.  I'll throw in the additional audio materials (like my related filk music and playlists) too. 
Able Seaman (Pagan Classes & Music)
$5 or more per month 1 patron
In addition to all the benefits of the previous levels, you get automatic FREE access to all my Pagan video classes! This includes my Eight Paths of Power classes and my Practical Magick classes, and any other paid classes I decide to do in the future.  If you maintain this level for 3 months or more, I will also send you one of my Mp3 albums FREE as a one-time gift! You pick which one.  I will need to know how to contact you.
Topgallantman (Multi-Media Access)
$7 or more per month 0 patrons
In addition to everything at the previous levels, you get all book-related or Pagan music I produce as mp3 downloads automatically (your choice which!) AND now your audio access to my live story readings includes video access as well, in a livestream!

In addition to everything at prior levels, you'll get access to a monthly video where I discuss my current projects, and part of my process for what I'm currently working on!

SKYPE SESSION! (really) Pledge at this level and get everything at the prior levels, plus a 30 minute Skype session with me every time a story drops. This is your time to ask about whatever you like. We can discuss story structure, real magick, plot hiccups, your favourite TV shows , or writing hacks. Your choice! And I will name a character after you or someone you designate.  Limited to 5 folks. 
Master & Commander (Command Performance)
$500 or more per month 0 patrons
Seriously, I can't imagine spending this kind of money monthly on someone's Patreon. You should pay your rent with this. But if you do, then in addition to all of the above, I will travel to where you are and teach a course or put on a personal performance at the venue of your choice!  This *includes* all my travel expenses and accommodation.  Booking the venue is up to you.

1 month: Within one day's driving distance from the Okanagan Valley.
3 months: Within Western Canada.
6 months: Within Canada or the Western US.
9 months: Within North America.
12 months: Anywhere in the world.

I will need to know how to contact you.

Okay, you're crazy, but thank you! YOU ARE A PATRON SAINT! In addition to all of the above, plus signed copies of every book I publish and a handwritten thank you note for as long as you're a Patron, you get to choose the characters and universe you’d like me to write about for one story each year  from any novel or short story I’ve published. Want another Wyrd West Chronicle? Done. Always wanted to hear more about what happened to Yathar while Shaundar was with the Bloodfist clan? Done.  And I dedicate the story to you!
