About

Thanks for stopping by, it's good to meet you! 

I'm John G. Hartness, and I'm a fantasy and horror writer, a small press publisher, a husband, and a father to one very overweight and needy cat. 

I write lots of different things, mostly novella length (30-40,000 words, or around 100-150 pages). I'm the author of The Black Knight Chronicles, a lighthearted urban fantasy series, the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter dark fantasy series, and the Bubba the Monster Hunter comedic horror series. I've also dabbled in high fantasy, Arthurian myth, science fiction, superhero novels, and poetry. Yes, poetry. 

I write for a living, and I attend around 20-30 conventions a year to speak on panels, meet fans, and sell books. I love traveling to new places, and I love getting the chance to meet fans, but convention travel is expensive. Even a small con costs upwards of $500 to get to, and the larger ones can run in the thousands. And that's not even considering conventions that require airfare! 

This Patreon page is to support my attendance at conventions, and allow me to continue to go places like DragonCon in Atlanta, Mysticon in Roanoke, LibertyCon in Chattanooga, as well as closer conventions like ConCarolinas, ConGregate, and Heroes Con. In 2017, I travelled to Awesome Con in Washington, as well as D.C., Penned Con and Archon in St. Louis, and and that was a drive and a half!

Your patron dollars go directly into the hotel, gas, and food fund to get me to these different places and give me the opportunity to meet fans all over the country. Maybe I can even make it to your town! 

So look around and see if you like my work. You can get access to exclusive Patron-only content for as little as $1 each month, and starting at the $5 level you'll really get some neat rewards. 

Thanks for stopping by, it's great to have you here.
Goals
$405 of $500 per month
When we get to $500 per month, I'll record another short story and make it available exclusively to Patrons for at least six months. I'll even let y'all suggest the story! 

So if you want to hear my dulcet tones read one of my short stories, get all your friends over here!
