is creating strange fiction
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!

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.
Tiers
A strange wanderer
$1 or more per month

Breathe like a butterfly flaps its wings.  I will thank you personally by email or social media, and I'll give you a shout out during an episode of The Bright Path Podcast.

Really a very convincing woman
$5 or more per month

Wear a dinner suit or a gown with equal flair.  In addition to previous tiers, you will be included in the acknowledgments for the next book in the series if you maintain at least this level for twelve months.

Cranky warhorse
$15 or more per month

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.

Hawk scout
$50 or more per month

Fearless and furious, you have a taste for beer and a truly unconscionable brogue.  After your first two months at this level, you will receive a signed copy of ALL THREE paperback books in The Bright Path, signed by Yours Truly.  (I will also lick them discretely if you so desire.)

King of the Goblins
$200 or more per month

You have rescued your people from destruction with the power of beer and sandwiches, and you play the drums like unto a god.  After your first three months at this level, my illustrator and I will produce a line art image of you with the Bright Path character of your choosing, in any action pose short of the outright indecent.  This level of patronage covers one of the two illustrations per month that will accompany the bi-weekly podcast episodes AND which will go into the finished novel as a chapter illustration.
