Summer is Coming!
I have several goals for the summer break, but one of them is to complete that first draft of The Gifted Ones The Spiral! It should have been completed in 2016. It's two years behind schedule because my muse quit talking to me! I could really use the encouragement to finish that trilogy. I want to "put it to bed" as the saying goes so I can work on other projects. I could really use help with what readers want to know about the characters and the story, too. I met some teen fans at a comic con when I was starting the draft. One of them made suggestion for it, and I actually kicked the story off with his suggestion of one of the characters being in a costume. I'd be happy to write in your suggestions, too, if you have any...

In addition to all of the previous patron level rewards, you'll automatically receive a signed author hardcover copy of any published work of mine that comes out while you're a patron. Author copies will be US English first editions. Limiting this reward because I can't spend all my writing time labeling envelopes and shipping books! I wouldn't be able to keep up with the other rewards! First come, first served! Grab it while you can... I mean, hardcover is almost unheard of these days!
Pledge $100 or more

All of the above rewards, plus each December I will create and mail you a printed chapbook of all of the year's non book draft related electronic content -- including the strange animal pictures, character poems, asides, etc. -- with a thank-you note. You'll get this, signed, anywhere in the world. Limiting this because these will be one of a kind, handmade by the author, chapbooks! Again, I can't spend all my time making chapbooks when what I really want to do is write, write, write.

All of the above rewards, plus each December I will call you on a Google Hangout (so it doesn't cost me my gift purchasing money) to offer a personal thanks. You'll also receive an oversized handmade holiday card with a personalized poem of cheer-- again, I will only have time to make a limited number of handmade items. Limiting this reward to two because... well, I'm pretty sure nobody in the world has that kind of money to spend on reading subscriptions. I know I don't. But if you really want that card and personal thanks, I won't stop you. I'll be more than happy to make it!
