I've tried a number of different intros here, trying to find the right combination of words and self-revelation and pigeonholes to describe me and my writing.

Let me try short (like me) and sweet (maybe not as much like me) this time.

Wanna read science fiction and social and political and futurist and other stuff that I won't know I'm writing until the urge strikes?

There are a lot of other white middle aged men out there writing.

Maybe not as many who came out of childhood poverty and have managed to stay poor despite collecting a pair of degrees. Maybe not as many with one foot in the poor rural midwest and the other in poor urban Tidewater.

I might be the only white middle aged poverty-stricken single father of three sons attempting to write a better life while unschooling-homeschooling the youngest two. Or not. I don't know. Maybe once you add my past experiences of addiction, homelessness, rape survival, longtime undiagnosed depression, and, and, and...

And maybe I'm completely blandaverage and have nothing to say.

Come read a little and then decide, will you?


Tiers
I support starving writers!
$1 or more per month
  • You get to see exclusive short fiction! I irregularly publish patron-only flash fiction, news articles from possible futures, thirteen word stories, and more. If I publish them anywhere else -- which I often don't -- you'll see them at least a week before anyone else.
  • See most sabarton.com posts a full week before they appear there! Occasionally I publish a small post, quick comment, or other irrelevancy without delay -- but you see all the MEATY posts first. :)
I want to help AND get ebooks!
$5 or more per month
  • Everything from the $1 tier, of course.
  • FREE ADVANCE EBOOK COPIES YAAAAAAAY! You will be able to download any ebook I publish from Patreon, for free, in the formats available to me -- usually EPUB, MOBI, and PDF. If you need a format I don't have let me know and I'll do whatever I need to do to get you a copy in a form you can use -- even if I have to email you a .doc or .rtf. If I publish immediately you get it right away, but you get PREORDERS AT LEAST 1 WEEK EARLY!
I want hard copy! And I'm awesome!
$20 or more per month
  • Of course, everything from the previous tiers.
  • Any time I publish a hard copy of something -- which will be collections or other stories that reach at least 20,000 words or more, give or take -- I will send you a signed hard copy! I use Createspace, and publish in 9x6" trade paperback. As soon as I get my copies from Createspace, I will pop your copy in a mailer and fire it off ASAP.
  • You rock and I super appreciate the support!
