Why hello there.

My name is Alex, and I write fantasy, horror and detective novels, along with the occasional cat mystery and were-dolphin erotica.  Right now I'm working on a serialized novel called Save Versus Death that mixes elements of fantasy and horror with a white knuckle detective story-- a cocktail sure to satisfy!  The story follows the exploits and expletives of private eye Jack Marsten, who finds himself living in a world unlike his own.  I post chapters from Save Versus Death three times a week on my blog (usually on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, barring real life nonsense).  You can find my sweet, sweet blog here: http://www.themagneticstrange.com.  I also put up the occasional illustration and share my high-falutin', suspender-wagglin' thoughts on art, writing and life.

So... why in God's green kingdom am I doing this Patreon thing?

As a fake witch on Scooby-Doo once said so eloquently:  money, Money, MONEY!

My goal with this endeavor is to be able to live off my writing.  It ain't happening right now, no sir.   But your patronage on this funny little website can help change that!  Or at the very least it can help me buy a six pack of Miller High Life once in awhile. 

So here's the deal: I'm going to continue to put up chapters for free.  If you like what I'm writing, please enjoy it with my sincerest thanks.  If you really like what I'm writing, and want to throw a little scratch my way-- prove it ya dingus!  Check out the pledges at the bottom of the page and become a patron!  The pledge amounts start small at $0.25 a chapter, and cap at $1.00 a chapter. Not too bad, right?  For the cost of a "cup of coffee" you can help support the arts.

As always you will always be able to find my work for free on my blog - http://www.themagneticstrange.com.  There are no ads or other crap there either.  If you think about it there's really no reason to donate.  Except of course to stave off the overwhelming sense of guilt that will keep you awake at night staring at your bedroom ceiling in a cold, clammy sweat.  That's really the only reason.

Thanks for reading,

 Alex J. Christy

For every 3 chapters of my serialized novel I'll create a color illustration that highlights a key moment from that section of the story.
