I'm Samuel, and I write science fiction novels (Mission One). In my previous incarnations, I wrote horror and a YA trilogy.
To make enough supplemental income so I don't have to take freelance video editing jobs which pull me away from writing short stories for you. I'm still going to write novels, but Patreon could allow me to write short stories as well. I'd like to already be doing both, but novels and work take up all my time.
Please allow me to thank you for taking the time to visit my Patreon page. I know you're busy, so it means a lot to me that you chiseled out a portion of your precious day.
I'll see you out there, and thanks again.
