Because I believe that the true reason mankind tells stories is that all men dream, and not all of them are pleasant sorts where you date cheerleaders and fight dragons. Sometimes they reveal uncomfortable truths, sometimes they make you question who you are, and sometimes they just scare the piss out of you when its far too late at night to still be online but fuck it its a weekend.

I endeavor to tell these stories. To give you something you can read during a lunch break that you think about the rest of the day. Honestly, if I can tell a story that causes you to eagerly await the next one, I'll call that a victory.

Also, while I try to tell a good story, and give people something they'll enjoy...Well, I have Aspergers Syndrome, which to those of you who don't know what it is, is not some sort of horrible bone disease or something. Its a form of High Functioning Autism and generally inhibits social skills across the spectrum.

While some people on the internet attempt to claim they have this condition has an excuse to be utter asses to people, I've been through quite a lot has a result of my Aspergers, and still struggle to understand other people.

That's not to say I don't try, and I've improved over the years, but it takes a lot of effort...And has you can imagine, when one is in an interview, it doesn't exactly improve your odds of being hired. Hence the Patreon, to try to earn a little extra cash.

(Note: The Vampire image does NOT belong to me. I didn't make it, I simply found it in the back portions of my Harddrive. If you know who it belongs to, do let me know so I can give what credit is due!)

You'll get my thanks, and I'll mention something of your choice in one of my stories. Of course I can only place so many references in a story without harming the body of work, so this will be limited depending on how many I get and what sort of story I'm writing.

My thanks, and I'll name a character after you in an upcoming story! They might not fit your personality, however, and I reserve the right to do unspeakable things to your namesake.

More thanks, because apparently it works like compound interest, and you choose the next setting. I specialize in Urban Fantasy, so I would ask that you make it appropriate for such stories. Moscow, Prague, Portland, Vancouver, Perth, think of it has Improv, yell out a setting, and we go from there!

Due to some varying issues, including, but not limited to: Aspergers Syndrome and Clinical Depression, I am out of work. While I am still looking for work, or might possibly return to school, I am hoping to earn a little money for personal use and to assist my family with bills and other expenses.

In other words, by contributing you're helping a broke aspie help his family out and pick up the odd new Game. Or possibly visit a dear friend of mine up in Portland (Hello Evan!) this summer. Its the feel good story of the year, or at least its slightly better then some of the crap they put on daytime TV.
