As Bernie Sanders demonstrated with his extremely successful crowd-funding efforts; together, we are powerful. Patreon invites you to step into the shoes of this global revolution by becoming a patron of an artist who seeks to inspire positive social change through stories. 

I hope you will choose to become My Patron, in support of an intriguing and eye-opening story told through a series of flash fiction vignettes!

Vashon After the Change 

Imagine, if you will, that your community were to be suddenly and inexplicably cut off from the rest of the world. Without warning and without exception. No communication, no flow of resources, no evidence that the outside world even continues to exist...nothing. 

What would happen first? On day two? Day forty-five? Day two hundred and sixty? How about the first winter? And the second? 

Such a scenario offers a rich landscape for exploring resources (those we take for granted and those we miss seeing entirely), but it also brings into sharp relief the ways in which human beings respond to conditions of intense pressure. A study in human psychology, yes. But more so, this collection of intense, human experiences highlights the larger, sociological forces at work behind individual action and thought. 

It is my hope to raise honest, real-world awareness through a series fictional events that follow two young brothers through this rocky terrain of change.

If this interests you, please consider becoming my Patron! I will do the imaginative work of blending solid fact and science with plausibility & fantasy...while you join with others to grow the funding I will need to promote my collection as early as April of 2017.

Finally, Patreon strongly encourages its creators to offer a video, but I prefer to direct you to my radio show, Prose, Poetry & Purpose. Where you will discover my passion for inspiring positive social change in the world, one author, one reader and one listener at a time. My show airs on 101.9 FM, KVSH @ 11am Sat/Sun, or you can view/listen 24/7 here:

Goals
$7 of $4,000 per month
Even when working with a publisher, promotional costs fall largely on the writer's shoulders. In order to free up my mind and my time, I am asking my Patrons to support my 2017 promotional tour up and down the West Coast. I estimate that $4,000 will be sufficient to cover a month's worth of travel expenses, lodging, food and promotional materials.
