I'm Ryan English, and I'm the author of the Acts of Androkles series. The first book, Obstacles, is available from the medium-sized publisher Wordfire Press on all major online retailers. Although I'd love to make a living in traditional publishing and that's still my end goal, these days it's harder than ever (not that it has ever been easy). Times are changing, and I'm changing with them.

That's why I'm posting the entire Acts of Androkles series online to read for free. I want as many readers as possible to enjoy my content because I believe that if enough people read it, I'll find a core audience willing to support me. The book will stay in print from Wordfire--I'm happy with my experience with them. This is just a new way to reach audiences and build a revenue stream that will help me write full-time.

Until I'm making enough to live on, the money earned by this Patreon will be put right back into the work, covering costs like advertising and art commissions, all of which will be free to the public (and many of which will find their way to Royal Road).

Patrons gain access to advance chapters, polls, side projects, and other perks. For example, I'll be doing regular readings of my stories (and others) in the Discord, which any level of support grants you access to.

Tiers
Basic Supporter
$1 or more per month

$1 here, $1 there, it all adds up.

Supporter
$5 or more per month

This tier grants you access to an advance chapter. For example, if I just posted Chapter 5.1, you get all of Chapter 5 and all of Chapter 6. This is usually several weeks' worth of material.

Better Supporter
$10 or more per month

Show a bit more love. I'll also reimburse on Venmo for a copy of the eBook of Obstacles your first month. I'm interested in your suggestions for what I might offer at this level.

Super Supporter
$20 or more per month

Includes two big perks:
-a free signed and personalized physical copy of Obstacles, shipped anywhere in the US

-access to unedited chapters, a whole bunch. Catch up to where I'm writing and give beta feedback

I'm Rich and Make Bad Decisions
$100 or more per month

For the bespoke Ryan English experience. Not really any different from the other tiers unless I think of something worth $100. This tier is for those interesting in showing extra support and generosity. Also comes with a signed and personalized copy of Obstacles, shipped anywhere in the world.
