For a $1/month you get to read the serial novel du jour (posted the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month).

You, the masked hero or villain, you are the one upon who we can rely when all other hope has failed!

You're probably already familiar with my writing. Perhaps you started with Seventy, the first short story I ever sold. Maybe you jumped into the continuum with The Day Before, the first novel I sold and my first piece of time travel fiction. Or maybe you read my latest piece and decided I was a good fit for you. Whatever brought you here - THANK YOU.
Thank you for coming this far.
The original experiment was the serialization of my novel BODIES IN MOTION on my blog. During that summer 100 people logged in every time a new chapter of was posted. A dollar per person during that time would have given me an income of $100/month.
There are over 3000 people who follow me on Twitter. The newsletter goes out to about 2000 people. On Tumblr nearly 800 people read snippets, short stories, fanfics, and chapters. That's not a small number of people.
One dollar from even a fraction of those people is enough to cover the cost of writing another book. It covers the time spent writing and editing, the cost of getting a professional editor for the book, and the cost of the cover art. A dollar a month goes a long way.
From the change you find in your couch, or left over from a month's worth of treats at the local cafe, you can ensure that I have a steady income stream that allows me to write stories like LADY OF THE LAKE, the newest serialized novel on Patreon.
$1 - Eternal Gratitude (and chapters of your favorite [new] Villains)... full access to the book I'm currently posting. Throw a dollar my way for the fun shenanigans and good karma.
A short story each month. Not everyone loves to read a serialized novel, and I get that, but you deserve something nice. So why not a quick short story emailed to you on the 3rd Friday of every month?
$2 - Copy of the final ebook in mobi, epub, and PDF (must back 3 chapters at this level)... whatever book you start pledging during the run of is the book you get unless you specify otherwise. This is also a great level to back the novel at just because you love me. <3
SUPER FUN THING! If you start subscribing to this level now you can go and download the e-copies of the books that have run on Patreon right now! That means you can subscribe to Patreon for $2/month and read THE POLAR TERROR today!
$5 - Books and Stories Galore!... love short stories and serialized novels? Great! Now you can get them both, with new posts three weeks a month, and the final ebook of any novel run through Patreon. You also get your name in the acknowledgments.
$10 - Early Access... to Mondays In Publishing and Writer Craft Wednesday posts. Plus plotting notes, deleted scenes, discussion of villain motivations, and more - and you'll get named in the acknowledgments at the back of the book.
$20 - Print copy of the final book (signed and shipped internationally) plus all the previous tiers... all my books that are published on Parteon are later edited, fine-tuned, polished, perfected, and published through Inkprint Press. Print editions are done through Ingramspark as trade paperbacks with a glossy cover. They are phenomenal and wonderful to have to show off in your home.
$100 - Stan Lee Cameo (hop in-hop out level) ... most people do not have a few hundred to drop on an author every month, but for one chapter? Do that and I'll sit down with you to design an original character that will have a cameo in the current book I'm posting. Become a minor superhero, a spy, a doctor, or just the fun side character running with an ice cream maker.
FOR THE LADY OF THE LAKE THERE ARE VERY FEW OPENINGS. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE.
You pay once a month. No fuss. No muss. No stress.
Chapters will be posted the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month.
Short stories will be posted on the 3rd Friday each month. The length will range from 500-word flash fiction to longer pieces of up to 5000 words.
Mondays in Publishing and Writer Craft Wednesday posts will be put up in batches and made public on the same day they post to the blog.
Thank you for coming this far. Thank you for reading. Thank you for considering this project. Even if you don't back me on Patreon, thank you. If you choose to donate, thank you. If you're here for every book, or just the one series you love, THANK YOU.
None of what I do would be possible without readers like you. You are the one I think about when I create a new character. You're the one I want to see smile when the hero wins. You make the magic of storytelling possible be being here and reading. THANK YOU.
