Hi, my name is Ron, and I'm a writer.

"Hi, Ron!  What kinds of stuff do you write?"


Most of what I write is science fiction and fantasy, but I like to dabble in other genres like horror and literary fiction, too.  My patrons will get to see much of my work before anyone else does.

"That's great, but why are you on Patreon?"

It's very hard to make a living as a writer, especially when you're starting out.  Sure, some get lucky, and publish an award-winning bestseller that gets made into a blockbuster movie on their first try, but for every one of those, there's a hundred thousand writers like me, who have talent and just need a bit of a boost.

That's where Patreon comes in.  It allows generous people like you to nurture the budding careers of creative people like me.  I have bills and rent to pay, and your patronage will let me write more of what you love and get me that much closer to my dream of being a successful professional author.

Check out the rewards I'm offering to my patrons.  Then, if they appeal to you, please consider clicking on the button that says "BECOME A PATRON" and making a monthly pledge.  You may pledge as much or as little as you wish.  Every single dollar is gratefully appreciated!

"Ah, but I'd like to know what you mean by 'first look' in your rewards."


That means patrons will literally get a first look at the work I post on Patreon.  The short stories, poems, and novel chapters will all be clean, revised drafts.  Comments and feedback are welcome, as no one is perfect, and it will help improve them.  At some point thereafter, I want to publish these works, either as eBooks, or through magazines and traditional presses.  Essentially, my patrons will get front row seats as I work toward my goals.

"One more thing, I heard a rumor that you're blind, Ron.  Is that true?"

Yep!  I use a screen reading program on my computer to write and do everything else, for that matter.  Isn't technology great?

Thank you!
--Ron

100 is a nice round number for the first goal, don't you think?

And the best part is, you can tell me which of them you're interested in seeing more of in the future!
