The Home for Wayward Fictions

These days, I'm best known (by a small but loyal readership) as a novelist.  But I originally started as a short fiction writer - mostly in horror, but also SF, fantasy, and even romance and (gasp) mainstream fiction - and before that, I made a decent sideline in non-fiction.

But NY publishing can only handle so much, and there's great deal of story-material lurking in the storeroom I laughably call a brain, waiting for a chance to escape. So this is your chance to encourage me to create more for your reading pleasure, and see what happens in the dark corners of my mind when I haven’t had quite enough sleep...

You'll also be sponsoring my beloved but medically-expensive cats (aka "the ones more internet-famous than I am"), since Patreon earnings go toward helping pay for the ever-increasing medical costs for my beloved but diabetic CatofSize (and his asthmatic younger brother the Kitten of Thursday).  Because apparently I'm a sucker for the animals with ongoing medical needs....








Tiers
The Tip Jar
$1 or more per Monthly installments 30 patrons

Access to shorter works (drabbles, flash and microfiction, filks, etc) produced each month.

plus the monthly Rant, a NSFW examination of (non-political) topics that made me go "ok no wait back up and WTF?" that month.

plus  on-going tutorials on the basics of wine, whisky, and other booze nerdery (suitable for both the drinker and the sober-but-curious).

The Storyteller's Bowl
$4 or more per Monthly installments 39 patrons

 

Everything from the Tip Jar,


Plus! at least one longer work every month (short story, novella, or part of a serial novel)


Plus!  Deleted excerpts and outtakes that may never be seen elsewhere (warning: there may be spoilers!)


Plus!  "What the Fuck is Writing?" essays on, well, writing.


Plus! "Meerkat Meets World" - personal observations on travel near and far.

Friend of the Family
$7 or more per Monthly installments 10 patrons

Everything from The Storyteller’s Bowl,

Plus!   Access to The Mom Files, an ongoing process of transcribing and editing my mother’s short fiction (published and not), with a look at some of her notes, essays, and letters. This will hopefully end up as a mother-daughter collection at some point.

This will be part editing-in-action, part storytelling, part Your Mom Did What?

Goals

Every backer gets a digital copy of the updated TALES FROM THE COSA NOSTRADAMUS, including otherwise unavailable stories from the Retrievers, PSI, and Sylvan Investigations!
