Thank you!
My name is Chris, I'm a writer. You probably already know that, since you most likely found your way here from the link on my website, deserak.com.

The goal is to explore writing, language, and story in an entertaining and high quality way. I want to share what I know, share what I read, and ultimately, write original content I can share as well.

Unfortunately, everything costs money. The domain name, the web hosting, the internet connection, the power bill, paying off that kangaroo who keeps telling me it's a "nice site I've got there, be a shame if anything happened to it".

I'd rather not turn to selling ad space on the site. So along with freelancing and merch sales, I'm putting this patreon in place to give anyone who cares to a way to directly support the site. At the same time, you'll be encouraging and enabling more content free on the site.

So thank you again. The mere fact you're reading this says you've at least considered the direct support approach, and I really appreciate it.

Thank you!

You've seen a poor writer on the side of the road, battered fedora hat on the ground, hunched over a small camping table while they frantically scribble with a nearly used up pen, pausing only to massage out the cramps in their hands.

And you, sir or madam, chose to throw some lose coins into that hat. It earns you a warm, grateful smile, and they promptly turn that character with your description into a valiant hero.

Thank you!

You want to give more than some spare change, but parting with a note feels excessive. I understand, and I appreciate all the same.

Along with access to the Patreon feed, you'll get the warm and fuzzy feelings that only generosity can provide. I'll also offer anyone supporting at this level or above a small discount on anything I sell in the merch shop (when there's something there, eventually).

Thank you!

It costs around the $5 mark to get a good cup of coffee. The addiction is real.


You could send help. Or you could shout me a coffee. I like coffee...


Then you can get yourself a nice cup of coffee while you read the latest content on the site, and it can be like we're having coffee together, as friends and/or people not inclined to murder each other. Isn't that nice?


And since you're now buying me a cup of coffee each month, you might as well have a chance to say something as well. I like the idea of doing a Q&A article every couple of months, and everyone supporting at this level gets to ask the questions.

You love the site. It's on your "most visited sites" when you open the net. You make a conscious effort not to miss anything, and tell your friends about it. You want to give, and give more than the average bear.

Did I not mention you're a bear in these? I should mention you're a bear in these. A generous bear. A generous bear that gets a hug.

Anyone supporting at this level, along with everything above, I'll give a larger discount on the merch shop and also a discount if you hire me freelance. Because you're just awesome.

My real ambition has always been to write a fiction novel. Ideally one worth reading. It's something I still intend to work on along-side the sites free content.

This level of generosity is a great boost toward me having the time and freedom to do that. And since a published novel usually costs less than this on it's own, anyone giving this much will get a free copy of any full length novels I release.

As for when, how many, or how often... I have no idea and I make no promises.

But, as long as this Patreon campaign exists, and anyone is pledging this much, this is the free gift copy list.

Questions from you will also get a higher preference for the Q&A post mentioned before (i.e. if there's more questions than I can answer, I'll go through these first).

I'll also put your name on a thank you wall on the site. :)

Are... are you sure you didn't hit a wrong button?

This is the one for $100 a month.

I... Why are you doing this? I mean, if you don't want the money I might as well take it, but... are you sure?

If you insist on this, I'll go ahead and do an entire article about you, interview style. Maybe we can figure out what's happening in there, you brilliant crazy person you.

Honestly though, I'm literally putting this here as a joke, for my own amusement. I don't expect this (I don't expect anything from anyone, but I especially don't expect this).

Hello!

Welcome and THANK YOU!!!

I'm writing this as a direct message since, well, there's only one of you. I'll be writing a special post for each milestone, and as my first Patreon, I'll let you pick the topic to write about for the first milestone post :D
