Aethernaut

$1
per month
 Backing this tier gets you access to a short story per month-- each set in the universe of one of my books! A great many of my short stories end up being novella length, so some of the longest ones may get split into two-parters.

Arbiter of Destiny

$3
per month
Get to vote each month on what short story I should write for you all! I'll include a few different options, each with some details about them!

If a short story isn't chosen one month, don't worry too much- I'll almost certainly offer it as a vote in future months. (The specific lineup of options will vary from month to month.)

If, for plot/character/continuity reason, I can't end up making the top choice work (it happens sometimes, hazard of the business) I'll go with the second choice.

Scourge of Automatic Doors

$5
per month
You're helping me get over the indignity of walking into automatic doors. You're truly a noble soul. Includes all lower tiers.

Also, on top of the monthly short story and getting to vote for the next short story, I'll also mention you in the acknowledgements section of my books!

About John Bierce

I'm John Bierce, and I walk into automatic doors with distressing regularity. Seriously, it happens three or four times a year. I'd like to blame it on the doors, but it's really probably just me-- I'm a fast walker, don't pay the most attention to my surroundings, and am hardly the most graceful human alive.

Oh, and I also write novels. I guess y'all are probably more interested in that bit, right?  I'm the author of the Mage Errant series, a mage school fantasy series following the adventures of Hugh of Emblin, who honestly would prefer not having any adventures. It's available on Amazon and Audible.

I started this Patreon for a couple reasons-- first of all, because I want to write short stories, and this would help motivate me to keep on the ball with them. They're all going to be set in the worlds of my books for now-- including any series after Mage Errant-- but eventually I might start doing other stories as well, if I can keep up the pace. (They'd likely be a higher backer reward level.)

The second reason I'm starting this Patreon? I have a LOT of student loans. So many. It turns out multiple degree changes, seven years of undergrad, and over two hundred collected credit hours gets expensive. (Not even counting the failed and dropped classes. Ugh.) Still no degree, either. (I mean, I can probably just heckle the university into giving me one out of pity or something.)

Though, I mean, if you really wanted to financially support me for my habit of accidentally walking into automatic doors, you could, I guess. It'd help relieve the embarrassment a little.

And if you're not into the whole Patreon thing, no worries- I do intend on eventually compiling these stories into anthologies!
