Justin Coates is creating military horror fiction

$34
per short story

My name is Justin Coates, and I've been writing since I was old enough to clumsily clasp a crayon in my grubby toddler fingers. When I was 18 I joined the United States Army as an Airborne Infantryman and marched off to Afghanistan. Five years and two combat tours later, I'm a published horror anthology author living with my wife, kid and annoying chihuahua in the Metro Detroit area.

Deployment experience gave me plenty of inspiration for the two genres I've loved since I was a kid: horror and military science fiction. I grew up on "Starship Troopers" (the book, the movie and even the TV show),"Hellboy" comics, and anything written by Stephen King. Currently I'm reading the most excellent work of authors like Daniel Arensen and David Weber. 

My goal is to create stories full of hardcore military action mixed with hefty doses of terror. I want you to feel the heat of the .50 cal barrel as its operator guns down a horde of shrieking monstrosities, smell the scent of gunpowder lingering in the air after a ferocious firefight in the bowels of some abandoned research facility, and feel the same rush of adrenaline that a Special Forces team leader feels as he leads his team into combat against beings that have no right to exist outside of a nightmare.

Additionally, all the stories that you'll read take place in the exact same universe. The world each tale takes place within is quite similar to our own...aside from the horrors lurking on the other side of reality and the organizations and individuals dedicated to stopping them. You'll become familiar with the secretive D.S.R.D, the tireless works of agents like the mysterious John Hauser, and the wise-cracking undead infantrymen of Project: REVENANT.

When you become one of my Patrons, you get in on the story before it hits Amazon or anywhere else. My goal is to eventually publish a collection of these stories, and when I do, I'll include shout outs to all my patrons as well as a free copy of the collection for all of you.

I'm much obliged to you even stopping by my page. If you don't want to enlist, feel free to stick around and read/comment on my blog posts (which are always free). Come say hello on Facebook (I've got a pretty public profile and accept all friend requests) or over on Twitter!

Welcome to the war, Trooper! Adversus nox!

Goals
$34 of $100 per short story
This amount of support means I have more to spend on professional book cover designs! When I reach this goal, I'll publish my first ever military horror collection on Amazon. Every one of my supporters, from Recruits to Operators, will receive a free copy of the e-book.
