I remember being in line at a grocery store, realizing I was about fifteen cents short to buy diapers for my newest baby - crying openly because I couldn't make ends meet - and a good Samaritan stepped forward (losing his place in a LONG grocery line)...

... and handed me a quarter.


It wasn't a lot of money objectively, but in that instant, that quarter was my whole world.

That moment continues to resonate with me - and always will. I learned a lot about generosity, about caring for strangers (even in ways that seem "small" to me but may mean the world to them).

I will also always remember the terrible, terrible feeling of being locked out of something I needed because I lacked a few pennies.
I hated that feeling, and wouldn't wish it on anyone. So while I ask you to be generous and support to the extent you can, ALL pledge levels provide access to ALL content on this Patreon page.

I have to support my family, and I give substantial amounts of my income to various charitable institutions on top that. So I do have to charge at least something here.

But if you can only afford $2, then sign up, and I'll still give you access to all the perks of membership. It's my way of paying it forward for those diapers, and countless other kindnesses shown to me and mine through the years.

Plus, most creators institute pricing tiers where you get more if you give more simply because they think that, given the option between giving more and giving less, people will default to the "less" option.

But I have gone on record (and will do so again and again and again) as saying that my fans are THE best fans of any public figure, anywhere, ever. And I absolutely believe it to be true - which is why I wasn't surprised the first time someone signed up for up $20, $50, or even $100, when they knew they'd get the same as the folks who gave $2 or $5 or $10.

All this to say: please be generous. There have been months where this Patreon page made the difference between paying rent and not paying rent. But whether you can afford $2 a month or $100 (aka "Golden Diaper Level")... you are welcome here.
And please know that, for me and my family, you are making a concrete - and sometimes critical - difference. My only hope is to repay your generosity with enough fun that you feel like you're getting the best end of the deal!

Which brings me to (finally!) what you get for becoming an MbC supporter:

All pledge levels get...
  • A code to download one free MbC title/month (chosen from my back catalog) in mobi (Kindle) or epub (other ereaders/apps)
  • A free short story every month - in some cases months before anyone else will see them ANYWHERE, and in some cases exclusives that will NEVER be seen anywhere but here
  • Exclusive coupon code for a discount on all MbC merch (it's in one of my earliest posts, so scroll 'til ya find it!)
  • Access to MbC Patreon-only merch (with new designs coming all the time!) at a SIGNIFICANT DISCOUNT*
  • Random perks that pop up, like opportunities to grab special, one-of-a-kind collectors editions of my work, and other things that I try to do to say thank you to all of you folks.

Again, please know that whether you're donating $2 a month or $100, you're welcome and - more than that - truly appreciated. Not only are you helping me continue to donate money and support worthy causes, but you're helping me care for my family... and please understand when I say, as an author, that I have no words to express how much that means to me.

The best I can do is this:

Thank you.

About Michaelbrent Collings

With so many people out of work and/or hurting for income, but also in desperate need of some kind of escape to take their mind off the craziness, I've done my best to create tons of sales and free content. My family and I also donate a large percentage of our earnings to various charities. 

We'd like to continue supporting good causes, and even increase our donations. But that requires your help.

So please, sign up. Those who have enough can share a bit with an author who (hopefully) gives them good stories - and can help us continue the sales, the giveaways, and the contributions to people in need of an escape during these difficult times.

Take care, and I look forward to seeing you inside!

Cheers,
MbC
