YOUR WORDS
$10 per month

Send me your questions or essay prompts, and I’ll pick one of yours at least once a year. Plus access to everything from the previous tiers. 

ILLUSTRATED WORDS
$25 per month
Reward

At least once a year, I’ll email you an illustrated piece of flash fiction or poetry. Plus you get all the benefits of the previous tiers. 

SPONSOR WANDER
$29 per monthonly 1 left
Reward

Wander is a sweet, clueless, three-year-old ball of fluff who likes to cuddle with his uncle Pete, and make his own fun with hair bands. In addition to all rewards up to and including the $25 tier, I will send you occasional pictures and videos of Wander being insufficiently grateful for your support.

EPONYMOUS WORDS
$45 per month

Within a year, you and I will email back and forth to decide on a detail (such as a character name) for me to slip into a new piece of work. Plus, access to all previous tiers. 

SPONSOR PETE
$46 per monthonly 1 left
Reward

Pete launches himself into every activity with gusto. He enjoys dashing around with his brother, Zephyr, and his nephew, Wander. His favorite toys are the straws he pirates from takeout cups. In addition to all rewards up to and including the $45 tier, I will send you occasional pictures and videos of Pete being insufficiently grateful for your support.

SPONSOR ZEPHYR
$66 per monthonly 1 left
Reward

Zephyr is a silky, handsome lap cat with jealousy issues--petting any other cat in his presence turns him into a “green tabby.” He cuddles with his brother, Pete, tolerates his nephew, Wander, and plays fetch with Q-tips. In addition to all rewards up to and including the $45 tier, I will send you occasional pictures and videos of Zephyr being insufficiently grateful for your support.

SPONSOR CLONE
$123 per monthonly 1 left
Reward

Clone is a rickety shambles of a cat who is frequently sickly, double-jointed, weak-kidneyed, eagle-taloned, and has a cry like a dying dinosaur. He has no use for toys or other cats, but believes it’s an emergency if he’s not currently being cuddled by a human. In addition to all rewards up to and including the $45 tier, I’ll send you individualized copies of newly published work when circumstances allow--and occasional pictures and videos of Clone’s distress that you aren’t petting him.
