You will find true romance in a most obnoxious fashion, and everyone will have to thank you for it.  After your first two months at this level, you will receive a signed copy of any one of the three paperback books in The Bright Path, signed by Yours Truly.

About

THE BRIGHT PATH introduced a sprawling science fantasy comic adventure romance political thriller, with goblins and cannons.  It's both a series of books... and a 100% free, listener-supported podcast!  The story continues with THE GODS WE MADE in the free podcast.  In addition, patrons of The Bright Path at any level receive free access to GRUBFIDDLE, a podcast-style serial audio book prequel to the free show.

With your support, The Bright Path will sail on to further preposterous adventures, packed with strange new technology, new realities, and new gags.  Your patronage will support the ongoing illustrations for the new novels (and podcast episodes) -- and, if funding permits, new and improved music production for the many songs that appear in Parts 2 and 3.  If you enjoyed the artwork and songs that made the show so colorful for the first year, please contribute whatever you can per month to keep it going.

You can subscribe to the free podcast right here.
