Tiers
Vital Spark
$1 or more per month
  • An ephemeral but nonetheless sincere e-mail of thanks.
Revelatory Flicker
$2 or more per month
  • An equally ephemeral email of thanks...
  • ...but in the form of a hand-written note scanned and attached.
Beckoning Glow
$5 or more per month
  • The transitory email of thanks...
  • ...which will likewise include a scanned hand-written note.
  • That note will, a short time later, appear in your actual mail.  Not only a quaint throwback to bygone days of non-electronic communication, but very nearly a hand-shake (or a hug, whichever you please); consider that the paper I write on is an artifact we will both have had our hands on!
Steady Beam
$10 or more per month
  • All of the wonderful nonsense the $5 level offers, plus the right to suggest (once, upon becoming a patron) a theme a flash story of about 1000 words.  That story will be previewed to patrons only for a full month ahead of public availability.
Golden Radiance
$25 or more per month
  • All the $5 level benefits, plus the right to suggest (once, upon becoming a patron) an theme for a short story of about 3000 words.
  • A preview of that story, even before the other patrons have a look.
Unearthly Effulgence
$50 or more per month
  • All that the $25 level would bring, plus...
  • Double the size of story.  More or less.  It's not a precisely measured stock to cut a chunk from, after all; around 6000 words.
  • Consultation on the second draft-- you get to be the first beta-reader.
Muse of Fire
$100 or more per month
  • All that the $50 level brings, plus...
  • The fountain pen with which the first draft was written, tuned and tamed by me-- because when I'm not writing or trapped at The Regular Job, I repair fountain pens and urge other people to try them (honest!  Try googling my name, and see if fountain pens aren't entangled in the results).
