$28
per Original "Indestructibles" superhero short story
I'm the author of the Indestructibles series, in which a gang of young superheroes--a solar powered girl, a ballerina vigilante, a kid with an alien living in his brain, a werewolf with confidence issues, and a Whovian with a black hole where her heart should be--learn how to save the world. 

The series is very comic book-like, with fast-paced chapters, a lot of pop culture winks and nods, and a quick publishing schedule (we've produced three books in less than a year and a half). A Patreon page seems like a good way to help keep up that pace (I write and edit for a living, but the books themselves are only a small part of what it takes to get by). There is a fourth book in the series in the works as well as a spin-off and prequel series, and while I barely sleep and write quickly, something like Patreon can help me keep that pace up long term and keep putting out quality Indestructibles stories at a fast rate. 

So many stories to tell 

The nice thing about the world of the Indestructibles is that there are a lot of corners of the world I haven't had time to explore in the main novels--solo adventures for the heroes, prequel stories about the previous generation of superheroes, darker tales from the villains' perspectives, even alternate reality and timeline stories. So what I'm offering to do is to provide Patreon backers exclusive access to original Indestructibles short stories before they see print anywhere else.

There's only so much time in the main series novels to explore the far corners of this setting, and I can already see tales I want to tell I may never be able to touch upon in the novels.

We've previously produced two Indestructibles "one-shots," short, self-contained stories which were made available on Kindle. Kindle is limiting, though, and I'd rather be able to interact with Indestructibles readers directly--what stories you want to hear about, who deserves a solo adventure, which villain backstory we haven't heard enough about. Patreon backers will receive access to quarterly stories at first, and potentially monthly (just like a traditional comic!) if things go well here.

Exclusive access to original Indestructibles short stories starring the core cast, popular supporting characters, and even never-before-seen heroes and villains in the Indestructibles world. They will start out quarterly but increase in frequency as we hit higher milestones.
Goals
$28 of $500 per Original "Indestructibles" superhero short story
If we hit a total of $500 in pledges a month, I'll have the opportunity to increase the frequency I produce short stories set in the Indestructibles world. These shorts will feature core characters, solos featuring lesser-explored characters, and even introduce new characters who haven't appeared in the books yet. These stories can be later collected in print editions if the campaign is successful enough to build an entire anthology. Future goals will enable me to provide stories more frequently.
