Who are you?

Hi everyone. I'm Shaun Kilgore, the owner and publisher of Founders House Publishing doing as much as I can on a part-time basis—while keeping the company debt-free. I started this company in 2009 to publish my own books as well as those of other writers who I partnered with to help them create and refine their work. I began with co-authored books with local people to tell local stories. Since then I've added writers like John Michael Greer, Ralph Meima, Catherine McGuire, George R. Fehling, among others. I also edit the short fiction magazine called MYTHIC: A Quarterly Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine, a Founders House project.

I want to do more, but I need more time.

Why Patreon?

I want to give readers and fans of the books and authors the chance to partner with me. My current job places limits on my time—and those job conditions as well as other outside factors have been changing and making it more difficult so I would like to leave my current job. With your patronage, I could focus more of my time on the daily tasks involved in this business including:

  • writing 
  • reading submissions
  • editing
  • proofreading
  • designing books covers and interiors
  • providing personal attention and good customer service
  • developing future projects
  • advertisement/promotions

The funds from your regular support will cover common regular expenses like rent, utilities, groceries, medication, and health Insurance—basically what I need to do this work.
