About Glenn Loury

Hi, I'm Glenn Loury. You might know me as 'that guy on Twitter who won't shut up about his books', or maybe 'isn't he, like, an economist or something'? (That's my Dad) And this is my Patreon.

Why am I doing this? Because while I like my job. I enjoy writing even more, but supporting yourself on words alone is nearly impossible if no one is willing to pay for them. So I turn to you internet! Typically, my focus has been short fiction of a speculative/fantastic/weird bent, often dark fiction. I try to use my work to highlight characters who are queer and/or POC. If that sounds like something that might interest you, and that you might want to further support, check out my website!

"What's in it for me," You ask? Well, by pledging to give here, at my Patreon, you will be given exclusive access to updates on my book projects, which you may have seen linked to previously at my website . I am hoping to use this page as motivation to get those projects, Motherlode & The Dreamscape Chronicles, rolling again, with the aim of having a draft of one or both of these novels/novellas finished by the end of 2018.

EDIT: I've added a third project, The Gray City, to the site here. It's less a novel than it is a collection of stories set in the same world. With a looser narrative focus than the other two.

EDIT 2: I've added another Tier, for 8.50 a month you will get exclusive access to audio recordings of my favorite pieces. These will never be available to the public, so get exclusive access to these today!

The first month's chapters and stories are open to the public, so that you can see for yourself if you're interested in what I'm working on. For the chapters going forward, only Patrons subscribed to the story's tier or higher will have access to reading them. That is until the books are finished of course! :-)

Check them out at the links below.

Tier 1: Short Stories (Prompts Provided by You All!)

Tier 2: Motherlode

Tier 3: The Dreamscape Chronicles

Tier 4: The Gray City

Tier 5: Audio Recording

To see the short story collections I've already self-published, check out my Amazon page here

Not sure if you want to commit to giving on a monthly basis? Feel free to just buy me a coffee.

I've also set a couple goals, if people express enough interest, then I'll create more content exclusively for this page.

Does this interest you? Well then sign up, and let's take this journey together!
