I'm an SF/F writer and have written a whole bunch of fantasy novels, including my first book, The Element of Fire, published in 1993 by Tor Books, and The Death of the Necromancer, which was nominated for a Nebula Award. I've also written media tie-ins (for Stargate: Atlantis and Star Wars), non-fiction, YA fantasy, short stories, and an SF novella series for Tor.com called The Murderbot Diaries. My most recent fantasy series is The Books of the Raksura, which begins with the novel The Cloud Roads.

The Raksura books tend to be wide-ranging adventures with the characters exploring different places and cultures in the Three Worlds, but I also like writing small domestic snippets set in their homes in the colony trees of the Reaches.   For this campaign, I'll be doing 500-800 word snippets about life in the Indigo Cloud Court, at least one per month.  Patrons will be able to suggest subjects to post about or ask questions about Raksuran life, which I'll answer with a short fiction snippet.

This Patreon will help me pay my monthly bills (like utilities, phone, etc) and keep up with minor repairs to my house so I can concentrate on writing more fiction.  It will also hopefully allow me to be able to attend more conventions and fan events, and contribute more books to fund-raisers.

Goals
$1,000 – reached! per month
Originally, this Patreon was only going to run for one year and would end in October 2016. If it reaches this goal, I'll continue with two 500-800 word fiction snippets about life in the Indigo Cloud Court per month at least until the next Raksura book, The Harbors of the Sun, comes out in 2017.
