R. Frederick Brown is a novelist (among other, less reputable things).
He spends too much time "nerding out" over the kind of things that his family assures him he should have stopped caring about once he reached high school (too ADHD to "catch 'em all", too OCD to give up the dream).
During high school, he was a fashion-challenged theater kid (bubblegum plaid golf pants and tan corduroy suit coats got all the girls).
He is a very talented public extemporaneous speaker (read: good at bs) and has won many awards for his ability to look smart while making up facts.
In spite of being an introvert bordering on hermit-who-shoots-at-squirrels (though he's too against animal cruelty to really ever commit to the lifestyle), he can do an excellent job of impersonating an extrovert at the tea parties he avoids like the plague (when dragged by those who love him and are just worried about him).
He has little interest in seeing his name in lights (traumatized by the deception in the lite brite commercials as a small child) and does the lion's share of his writing as fun pieces for the special people in his life - others buying and reading them is just a perk.
Those who do buy/pirate/steal/etc. his works and read them and enjoy them have a special place in his heart - right beside ferrets, good cinema, and the BBC.

People I Nod To In Public Places
$1 or more per month
You have chosen to show support with more than just thoughts and prayers (though I can use all of those I can get too I guess). Believe it or not, you mean as much to me as every other donation level. I've known times when I wished I could afford a dollar to show support to creators I love. And you know what? I think it's amazing that you took the step to actually support me at all! And since you're giving me more than positive energy, I'll do the same. You'll get access to a patreons-only website where I keep short stories, art, inspirations, blogs, heck I may even throw a terrible poem or two in there just for kicks! You'll also get access to some of the things created by my very talented creative circle of friends. Also, just know that if we ever get to meet in public, just shoot me a nod to let me know what's up, because you are awesome, and you're the kind of person who I'd nod back at. 
People I'd Fist Bump
$5 or more per month
Wow! You are effectively supporting me with the cost of a monthly comic book subscription from when I was a kid. That's kinda awesome! That is on par with being a true fan of an author's work! Thank you! And as a thank you, in addition to the rewards from lower tiers, you'll get access to the monthly AMA where you can post any question you want and I will answer it - perhaps even truthfully and without typical author evasiveness. Ask when the next book comes out. Ask what Character X's big secret is. Ask where I shop for clothes. Whatever you like. Ask away! And hey, if we see each other in public, you totally get a fist bump!
People I'd Shake Hands With
$10 or more per month
Okay, seriously - that's about the cost of buying three hardcover novels per year. Cool. Turn about is fair play. In addition to the rewards from the lower tiers, I'll send you an e-book copy of each novel as it comes out. No charge. Also, you get every fanfic I write. And if that isn't enough, should we cross paths in public, my friend, you are the type of person I'd be proud to shake their hand! 
People I'd Get My Picture Taken With
$20 or more per month
Um, yeah. You're awesome, and I love you. That kind of support is crazy-great. You get something special here. In addition to all the lower tiers, you get physical copies of the books I publish mailed out to you, because you're amazing! Also, if you see me in public, I'll totally pose for a picture with you! That's evidence that you could use in a court of law to prove that you've met me! If that isn't enough, you'll get to vote on the next novel I write to help me pick. Also, let me know which book is your favorite, and I'll send that one signed!  Yeah! How about them apples?
People I'd Hug And Claim As Family
$50 or more per month only 20 left
Okay. That's it. We're family now. I will invite you to all of my children's birthday parties. For real! If I ever make a baby, you're getting an invite! Really. You'll also get all the lower tiers, plus every book I mail to you will be signed and dedicated. Also, at this level, you get to propose the next novel I write. Got a fanfic you want to see that doesn't exist yet? Want to see a novel about a group of warrior-scientists battling the orange frog-people of the Trumashington Reach? I got you fam! How could I not?! We're family now after all! 
People I'd Rescue From A Fire
$100 or more per month only 3 left
You are the kind of person I'd rescue from a burning building - a thing I'd normally only do for lovers and pets... and maybe just pets. But you? Yeah. I'm not waiting on the fire trucks. I'm getting you out or going down with you! Trust! Also, in addition to all lower tiers, you get one novel per year of your choice. You pick the title. You pick the topic. You pick the plot. You can even name a few of the characters if you'd like. Moreover, your copy of that novel will be custom bound by hand and artisan crafted and illustrated by artists way more talented than I am. If we're ever in the same city, hit me up and let me know. We'll do dinner sometime.

If we have 100 people that interested in supporting me we'll throw a party. We'll get a discord going. Load up an online game of Cards Against Humanity, and have a give-away with some really nifty prizes!
