I've always been a writer. The thing is, I've finally taken steps to become a full-time writer. That means writing lots of words and putting them into books. Books that people can buy. And books that people can judge and give me reviews.

To say the least, all of that is scary.

What I need from you - my fans, friends, family, and peers - is to help support me on that journey. By becoming a patron, you will help support the launch of my book, with hopefully more books to come.

Have you ever asked yourself, "what is Joe working on?" It seems like he's been writing for years, in secret, not willing to share a single piece.

Well the time has come to pull the veil aside. As a patron, you'll get unparalleled Behind The Scenes Access to my writing life.

Want to help name my book? Become a patron.
Want to name a character? Become a patron.
Want to read early draft chapters? Become a patron.
Want to choose the book cover? Become a patron.

I write lots of stuff, and most of it I toss in a drawer, never to see the light of day. You'll get unprecedented, never before seen access to all my "killed darlings."

Did you know, before I decide on a novel concept, I quickly write 10 short stories. I then grade those stories, and pick the best one to become a novel. What would it mean to you, if you could read those "rejects," or to even help me select the best one to become my next book?

I'm giving you the chance to help me on that journey.

And every little bit helps.

So thank you for your contribution.

This is the big "sha-bang." You get all the stuff as before, plus a special acknowledgement "shout out" in my upcoming book. I wouldn't be able to write full-time without the patron's support, but this level means so much more.

Who knows where this path will lead? But one thing's for sure, people at this level want me to succeed. There's nothing I can even offer for this level of kindness. I am truly grateful.

Is behind the scenes access not enough for you? Then tell me what you want. Signed book copies, a phone call, a book idea, meet for coffee? I feel eternally grateful for support at this level, and want to repay in-kind.
