I aspire to be a troubadour. I write fantasy novels and short stories as well as blog about my life as a husband, father and teacher in Japan. I podcast about comic books, such as DC Comics' Starman, and also produce a horror narrative podcast about vampires in Tokyo. In between all that, I play ukulele and write little songs.

I love creating and writing. The patrons supporting me help me justify the time and energy that goes into creating. There are so many hours in a day. And every hour I spend writing, every hour I spend working on a podcast comes at a cost of time from other projects. Having Patreon, and the kindness of patrons, let's me justify the time cost. That's right, there is a straight line from getting money to being able to create.

So, thank you patrons for supporting me and allowing me to continue my quest to become a troubadour.

Paperback Subscription!
$5 or more per month

If you are giving me $5 a month for me to focus on my writing, then I don't want you to have to shell out again when I manage to put out a paperback.


So, Patron's at this level will be shipped an autographed copy of books I have out. (Currently the only paperback available is Deadly Troubadours.)

Now, to keep things fair, what you pay into Patreon will basically serve as credit towards any current and future books (and shipping). If your "balance" equals that cost, I'll send you one of my books.


The books I have available are the limited edition, printed in Japan copies. These are of superior quality to those purchased through the print-on-demand options from Amazon.


**This level will also receive the exclusive challenge coin once the $150 goal is unlocked.**


In addition, you also get the rewards from the previous tiers:

The "Bards. Dragons. Magic. Swords." Wristband.


The Thomas Family New Years Card!

Goals
$100 of $100 per month
When I reach this goal I want to start being more proactive in building a community, and giving supporters more access to me. I will start doing a twice a month video series where I answer questions (hopefully between 5-10). The questions can be about me, life in Japan, writing,  etc. The goal will also be to make this videos in a variety of locations so that I can also show off the area in which I am living.  Not just in front of my computer.
