Forlorn in the Forest of Essence
It doesn't surprise many when I list Alice in Wonderland as my favorite childhood disney movie. I was particularly in love with the concept of the flowers having personalities, and the idea of rocking horse flies, and bread and butterflies. It stems mostly from the logophile in me.

Many Hands Make Light Work
$1 or more per month ∙ 1 patron
At the beginning of the Reliquarian, I worried we wouldn't get everything done and the dying light was fading. Remy said "Many Hands Make Light Work." That has become a mantra, and this donation embodies that. Small things make great impact. Every dollar counts, especially yours. We thank you by adding your name to our list of Patron Saints on the Reliquarian Site, and our social media.
Private FB Group Entrance
$3 or more per month ∙ 2 patrons
Triple the Thanks! At $3 you'll gain access to our Facebook community for Patrons and Project Members. This allows you to see the pieces in progress, the illustrations as they come into existence, and advanced reading of rough drafts, before they are available to anyone else. Indeed, those who go above the minimum are my tribe, and I often look to you for inspiration, and critique, both in the artistry and the Authorship.
$9 or more per month ∙ 1 patron
$9 is suited to the readers. If you're interested in the story line, this is where you want to be. At this level we release a new segment of the first draft each week, and welcome your ideas and feedback as we go into the second and third drafts. This is where you can learn about the characters, the stories of the nine realms, and the key to everything.
$12 or more per month ∙ 1 patron
Need to know what happens before anyone else? This tier group is one reading ahead of everyone else. Chances are you're reading pieces of the story that the images haven't been created for yet, so check back on past post from time to time. On the other hand, because you're ahead, you'll probably recognize the pieces of the story, while others simply look at pretty pictures.
The First Readers
$15 or more per month ∙ 0 patrons
At this level you have the advance chapters 2 weeks before everyone, and 1 week before the advance readers. If you need to know immediately, this is for you.
The Lost Pages
$18 or more per month ∙ 0 patrons
Like all stories there are often many versions, things are forgotten, and left out, replaced, and intentionally torn away or erased. If you want the scenes that are cut, if you have a bit of a darker side and don't need trigger warnings, this is the place to be.
Pledge $27 or more per month

Our beautiful and mysterious Reliquarian Boxes. Patrons originally referred to wealthy, those who appreciated art would aid in financing their favorite artists, and musicians. In exchange they filled their homes and lives with their creations. At this level, each month you will receive a Fine Art Limited Edition Print, including ones available nowhere except Patreon; along with a beautiful Collectors Box. Each print is signed and numbered by the Artist. If one remains a Patreon for the duration of the project, at it’s end they would have a full collection of the series.
