"Come on in and dine with us". Those are the words painted on the glass doors to the legendary Astral Cafe. It is a place where elves, aliens, superheroes, and gods mingle over good food and good drinks. Run by the amnesiac Brandy and employing some unique and eccentric individuals, including the most dangerous bartender in the universe, it is a place where anything can happen and usually does.

The Astral Cafe series was an idea I come up with years ago and have worked on occasionally. Early on, I collaborated with a group of fledgling authors and we wrote several short stories about the place. However, as I grew and studied creative writing, I realized that those stories needed a lot of work. I've revisited them from time to time. I am revisiting the series again with new plot ideas, new characters, and a better understanding of the art of writing.

At the moment, the real obstacle I have is time. I only manage to get a few hundred words written a day. I have a low paying job and I go in on my days off to earn some extra money in order to keep my family afloat. If I can get some patrons, then I will be able to afford a day off each week to work on writing and finish my first novel a lot sooner.

Some support would also let me host my own website so that I can get rid of the ads that are there now and add some other features.

In addition to the listed rewards, I have an extra, group reward. For each dollar I receive, I will add 1 word to a special sneak peak page on my website http://jaredtheauthor.wordpress.com

Thank you for all your help.

$250 is not much per month, but it would let me take a day off of work now and then to focus on writing and would let me register my own URL.
