Tiers
V.I.P. Room
$1 or more per month
Now that Patreon has decided not to charge patrons the service fee for their payment processing, I can again in good conscience recommend this level.

*Join conversations that only patrons get to be a part of
*Get occasional meta-updates on progress (or frustrations about the lack of it).

*Give input into upcoming projects, take place in patrons-only polls, join the back channel conversation about upcoming projects.

*Be informed about hiccups in the blog's regular update schedule.

Monthly Newsletter
$3 or more per month
Less intimate than my "Inside Scoop" letter, but with a few  goings on and comings up. I will skip a post on the regular blog once a month to give folks who crest the payment-processing-worth-it threshold a little glimpse behind the scenes. 
Silver Silly Superfluous Selfies
$5 or more per month
Well....not JUST selfies.

I'll share pictures of things I find interesting, pets I'm sitting, trips I'm on, maybe even wacky photoshops. Really this is just some small way of saying a deep and sincere thanks.

I tend to post a lot when I'm doing something interesting like a trip  and forget for too long if I'm overbusy on side gigs.

Plus all the lower tier rewards.
Early Access
$10 or more per month
A lot of my posts go up pretty last minute, but once a month (twice if I'm on FIRE) I will really try to get one of the "meatier" posts done ahead of time enough time to post it to Patreon early.  I often also incorporate your feedback and input into what becomes the published draft.

Plus all the lower tier rewards.
The Gold Club
$15 or more per month
Enjoy a number of minimally tangible rewards like being the first tier to break a tie on polls that are too close to call, the level I will regularly tell when something is going on that will cause a major disruption on the blog, and the occasional personal update that I'm not ready to share with a wide audience.

But none quite so great as that warm and fuzzy feeling that you are REALLY helping a struggling artist be able to spread some peanut butter on today's ration of toast.


Plus all the lower tier rewards.

Inside Scoop
$25 or more per month
Be included in a newsletter (once every three months is my ambition) detailing major writing developments, progress, and upcoming projects before anyone else does as well as a greater personal insight.

(Note: this is the same letter as the Kickstarter Inside Scoop for the duration of that project.)

Plus all the lower tier rewards. 
Patron Muse
$50 or more per month
Join a small group of incredibly generous donors. You will (should you wish) get a blog shout out a couple of times a year as well as a page within my blog's upper menu "pages" singing your praises.  There will be a few updates just for you and once in a while I will ask for just your input.

If you stay here for a year or so, there might also be a zombie story where a character with your name makes it to the helipad....

Plus all the lower tier rewards.
All The Autographs
$75 or more per month
Whenever I'm out of town (and if I don't travel for a while I'll offer it up every few months) I'll give a shout out and anyone who wants an autographed postcard from where I am can (privately) tell me their mailing address.

Then when I'm gobs-o-famous, you can pull out the collector's item postcards worth tens of dollars and show your completely unimpressed grandkids. 

Plus all the lower tier rewards.
I Literally Can't Even
$100 or more per month

Are you sure?

Okay, well, if you're sure, let's hook you the hell up.

*Early access to fiction pieces (and a good chance your feedback will go towards some last polish).
*High priority influence on choice of upcoming projects and articles. 

*Should you wish it, a video chat every couple of months.
*Receive a postcard a couple of times a year (they might even be worth something someday).

*Keep at this level for a year and I'll ask you if you'd like to name a character in one of the fiction pieces I'm working on.

Plus all the lower tier rewards.

The Inner Sanctum
$150 or more per month
If you aren't already (and provided you behave, of course) I will invite you to follow my personal account on Facebook. There I share feelings and thoughts that are generally a little closer to my vest and less for public consumption.

Plus all the rewards of the lower tiers.
The Platinum Club
$250 or more per month
It's hard to imagine going higher than the tier below but consider that I will gladly expand my efforts to keep you happy to anything–even sustained things that might take a few hours a month. (Two or threeish)

Personal letters (even hand written)? Tutoring? Voice chats? Editing work on your own writing? After a sustained month at this level, I'll be e-mailing you to find out what I can do to make you happy.

Plus all the lower tier rewards.
Old Timey Patron
$500 or more per month
I don't even know why I'm writing this. Please don't do this if you're not filthy rich and just love independent artists. I don't want to be the reason you haven't eaten anything other than Ramen for a month.

At this level I don't really know what I could offer, but I'll be e-mailing you at least once a month after the first to try to figure something out. Facetime. E-mails. Private tutoring. Advice. Editing. Signed copies of anything I write. Handwritten letters of thanks that you can sell on e-bay when I'm uber-famous. And of course my ear as regards to upcoming projects. Even sustained efforts that might take five or six hours a month.

Plus all the lower rewards.
Debate me!
$2,500 or more per month

Once per month, on any topic of your choosing (including the humanity of others or any tenet of social justice), I will debate you with maximum good faith and not ban, block, or remove it. I will prepare for two hours, debate you online for a full 24 hours––accounting for the fact that I need to sleep for eight hours on roughly US West Coast time––doing nothing else but giving you my full, undivided attention.
