Hello. I'm Matthew, and I'm a writer.

I've been a freelance writer for years and I recently completed my first novel, Nameless, and now I'm working on a series. One of the things I've learned after completing it was that there are all sorts of things I'd like to pay for - proofreading and copy editing (I'm suffering from diabetic retinopathy and as a result I miss a lot more typos than I'm comfortable with) as well as in-book character illustrations and other art. I know the people who produce such art and provide editing services deserve to get paid for their work, but I'm just a simple frozen caveman writer. Also, I like to eat food and would love it if I could make enough money from my work to help facilitate that. I'm really excited about the possibility of perhaps even going back and getting frontispiece art for Nameless.

Many people have suggested Patreon as a means to make enough money via my writing to help meet these goals. I have many novel and short story ideas I'd love to be able to work on, and while the Nameless series has excellent cover art already I'll eventually be branching out into other genres and will need covers for them, as well. Plus, that food thing.
I hope that Patreon allows me to pursue these and other goals in the future. I really appreciate all the support I've received so far and I'm definitely excited to see how Patreon works out going forward. i plan to be very active on my Patron-only blog, talking about writing, genre fiction (Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi, and even Comic Books) so as a Patron you'll get access to that in addition to potential previews of the works in progress as I complete them.
