Fast forward thirty-five years. (It's funny how fast the decades roll by when you don't have a plan!) At some point, we all hit that "If not now, when?" moment. There's no more time for someday. The time to live the dream, and to make that dream a reality through careful steps and hard work, is now. Thus, this Patreon account.
Patreon allows me to do three things. First, I get to develop and maintain close, direct relationships with supporters. See, as an indie author, I can live or die according to the whims of companies like Amazon and Facebook. When they change their algorithms, as they have several times before, authors suddenly find themselves cut off from their audiences. They are the gatekeepers between me and you, and they can shut that gate any time and for any reason they please. I don't like that.
Second, the larger my Patreon community, the more I'll be able to rebalance the scale of my day job vs. fiction work. Presumably, you're here because you like my fiction, and believe me -- I want to create a lot more of it! Patreon support will help open the door to that fantastic tomorrow much wider.
Finally, with Patreon, I can take you inside my creation process and make you a development partner. Supporters get access to behind-the-scenes, in-progress materials that no one else will ever see. You'll get extras. You'll get insight into me and how I do what I do. You'll be the VIP who receives my finished projects well before anyone else does. You'll get to provide input and influence into the works you and every other fan will go on to enjoy.
What do you say? Will you help me to inspire and entertain thousands of people, young and old alike, and make sure you have a front-row seat for the ride?
