TO PATRONS:
I've created this Patreon account for one reason: to write like a pro.

Time is unfortunately finite. We all have so many demands on our time; jobs, family, friends, and the dozens of menial tasks that use up our too-short days. Writing is a full time job, but it's not something you can just jump into and turn into a career right away. It's a small business that requires a lot of investment and time where authors both work hard to create, and work hard to get fans. All of that comes long before any possible financial return.

That means that trying to pay the bills with another job, while also striving towards becoming an author, leaves me with very little time. Writing is invariably sacrificed. I can't not go to my day job and write instead when bills need to be paid. And there's a limit to how much time someone can sacrifice with their relationships before they really start to suffer. Alone, the dream of becoming a professional author is just about impossible. That's why I need your help.

With wonderful, supportive patrons, an artist has the ability to devote far more time to their art. Good for artists who want to do what they love; great for supporters who want to enjoy their finished works. Patronage is a system with a long, noble heritage, supporting legendary artists from Da Vinci to Shakespeare. How would you like to feel noble for a change?

Being a patron makes you a hero. When you believe enough in someone else to support their dream, to invest in their labour and skills and passion, that makes you an incredible person. You're actively choosing to make the world a better place, and choosing to help bring about a better future.

Just imagine how amazing you could be if someone really believed in you and supported you in reaching your potential. With Patreon, you can be that awesome for others. You can help me reach my potential too.

I promise that what I want to do with my life is produce the best stories I can for everyone. Stories that move hearts and make people think. Stories that help us understand ourselves and the world around us a little better, so that we can become healthier, more successful and happier. And you can be a part of that. With your faith and support, you can make this dream come true, and enjoy all the fruits of our shared success.

But you know what's even better? What's priceless, beyond the rewards and the art that comes with being a patron? The appreciation. As a patron, you are honestly, really APPRECIATED for who you are and what you're doing. How often do we feel completely the opposite in life, unappreciated for all that we do and are, at work and even at home? But when you support me, or any artist, as a patron, I promise you that you are truly appreciated and valued. Your support means the world.

I look forward to your patronage, heroes and heroines. You the donor, I the writer, together we are a team!
