PREVIEW - One Writer's Life - Issue #1

Hi, I'm David Maxwell and I'm so glad to meet you. Whether your are a reader, an aspiring author, or a supporting patron on my Patreon site, I am delighted that you're taking time to read my initial installment of One Writer's Life. I hope we build a long-lasting and rewarding relationship.

In each edition, I will be sharing personal information about my life experiences, history, aspirations, triumphs and tragedies. Due to the nature of this content, I will be limiting the availability of this e-zine to only Gold tier patrons and above.
