SuperHeroes
$1
per Scary bit
You, my friend, are awesome. I am humbled and thrilled that you decided to support me. As a SuperHero, you will have access to my Patreon-only feed and receive links to downloadable versions of my content before it is posted online.
DemiGods
$5
per Scary bit
I am beside myself and basically ready to lay my sword at your feet and build you an altar. Your pledge means the world to me. As a DemiGod, you will have access to my Patreon-only feed and receive links to downloadable versions of my content before it is posted online. With each piece of content, you will get little extras, usually in the form of a foreword and/or an afterword. There will be notes about the context in which each story was written and about the process or writing, little secrets about the quirks of each story and, occasionally, alternate versions or edited scenes.
ActualDeity
$10
per Scary bit
No, seriously, are you sure about this? I love you more than words can possibly express, which is unfortunate, because words are literally all I have. As an ActualDeity, you will get all the rewards of a DemiGod, but I will also be sending you a printed version of each new story, with a unique, hand-drawn cover.

About

The first thing you should know about me is that I am terrible at presentations and small talk. What I hope I am reasonably good at is writing stories. I won't bore you with the one about my life though, or how I spent the best part of my adult life telling myself that writing fiction is not a proper job and replying to myself that actually there are a fair few people who seem to be making a decent living of it. The fact that you are here, reading this, should tell you how that conversation panned out. As I write this introduction, I have no idea how much my stories are worth, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read them. Here how it's going to go.

I will be posting short stories, novellas and (sparingly, I promise) poems on my blog: The Scary Bits. They will be public and they will be free. Do I believe that all art should be free or do I believe that my art is not worth paying for? Let's not get into that just yet.

If you read  my stories and like them, you will have two options: you can support me on Patreon, for as little as 1$, and I will be eternally grateful to you. In exchange, you will get downloadable versions, so that you can read at your leisure on any device. You will also receive extra content and you will get to read new stories before they are posted online. If you can't or won't pledge, but you still enjoyed my stories, you could support me by sharing them on social media or forwarding them to your friends. I will be equally grateful and will love you forever. Deal?

I will be quite ridiculously happy and commit to one story a month, with all the trimmings (extras, notes, edit, cover artwork, the lot!)
