My Introduction
:

Hello everyone, thank you for visiting my Patreon page. My pen name used for these books is Zeno, based on quantum physics not the Greek philosopher; just to be clear, lol. I will be releasing the first/introductory chapter of "Dark Days: Only The Beginning" later today on my Facebook page, here and soon on other sites where I will be selling my book.

Dark Days will follow a new publishing model I think readers would enjoy for the same reason many of us gamers have enjoyed a similar model (episodic release) being used within that industry. Every two to three weeks a new segment/episode within the book/season will be released at a fraction of what the book as a whole would cost while being accompanied with a unique illustration hand drawn by an artist specifically for that segment/episode of the book. These segments will tie into one another to create a story about love, pain, perseverance, fate and how we shape our own path with every step within our journey despite what might lay on the trail behind us.

This book is loosely based on my own journey, but of course fantasized into a epic tale to make it way more entertaining then some old autobiography about myself, lol. Since I don't want this to come as a shock to any loyal patrons or anyone to think it means this book is just an attempt at a cash grab I want to state when it comes to fiction I personally prefer to get mine from games, not books; which is actually what this started off as twelve years ago....a script/story to a game I was going to make.

For the higher pledging contributors who get to do a special one on one Skype call with me this means there is so much back story to each character, including the monsters/demons, which has not made it into the books that they can ask me about. I will do regular/typical group Q&A video conference calls for all who pledge $3 or more though, and post recordings of these general Q&A for those pledging even just $1, so everyone can learn more about the Dark Days universe.

I hope you all enjoy it and that maybe, just maybe, this story helps touch someone in a positive way so they know they are not alone and that you can always choose your own path. ^_^

P.S I have a feeling this is going to be an exciting experience, possibly even one worth a whole new story but we will see.

The Observer
$8 or more per month
In this tier you get everything from above plus get access to periodic posts and live chats of me in the mists of working on the book, selecting epigraphs to use, marketing, talking with artists or anything else directly related to the process of making and selling of Dark Days.


I think by now everyone knows I am truly thankful to you all for any contribution made so to save everyone the time of reading repetitive text I will not include it. :)

The Theorist
$25 or more per month only 40 left
This tier is perfect for bloggers, vloggers, YouTubers or anyone who likes to make theories about books. This tier includes all the benefits of the previous tiers but as a exclusive bonus for this tier only I will do live group chat to discuss theories, provide inside information about characters and pretty much everything theory related; minus confirming any theory as right or wrong seeing as that makes it a conclusion and in turn no longer a theory.


Patrons of this tier can even ask, not demand, me to write them quotes to use in their theory to further strengthen their theory without outright proving it. ^_^

The Fan
$50 or more per month
This tier  includes all previous benefits, minus The Theorist tier, but also will include a exclusive t-shirt baring a custom piece of art for Dark Days that will only be given to family, friends and patrons of this tier or above! :D


NOTE: It can take up to 30 days to fill and ship all orders. This does not include shipping time from me to your door.

The Fandom
$150 or more per month

The Loyalist
$500 or more per month only 10 left
Not even sure what to offer on this tier outside of course everything from the previous tiers, minus The Theorist tier, so before choosing this one please give me some suggestions on what you might like to see as the bonus for this tier. If you just want to do this tier and see what is picked then by all means please do and thank you.
The Immortal
$1,250 or more per month only 4 left
As any other immortal your story shall live on forever, or should I say anyone you want shall live on forever in the Dark Days story. That is right, if anyone is willing to pledge The Immortal level for even a single month a character in Dark Days not already named that fits the personality type you detail (good, evil, shy, outspoken, sexy, jabba the hut level uggly, lol) will be named after whomever you so choose. Plus of course you get everything from previous tiers, minus The Theorist tier.


DISCLAIMER: As less characters become available for naming the price of this tier MIGHT increase to reflect the change in character "supply" available.

Goals
$0 of $150 per month
$150 a month extra would allow me to focus more on the book and get some minor programs that will boost my efficiency in writing and marketing Dark Days.
