"The shadows were never meant to be noticed. Predators upon the human psyche, waves of a primordial Tide, they’ve lingered obscure beyond the opaque curtain of perception. As their abysmal cradle fades further away into deepening mists, however, the minds of their prey become not only a source of nourishment, but also the means through which they might survive, and evolve, out of the grey oblivion threatening their race, even if they must threaten another to do so."

-Waves of the Tide, series synopsis

Welcome to my page on Patreon!

My name is Kenneth R. Gerety and I have been an avid reader and writer for many years. Stories are what I live and breathe, and though it may not be possible for me to make a living as a storyteller, I've decided to pursue self-publishing because, simply put, storytelling is what I live to do. I have already concocted a few volumes of poetry, and am now ready to focus my creative energy on prose, which is where I feel the most comfortable and driven to succeed.

Having finished and published Waves of the Tide Part I: A Shadow's Rake, I am now in the midst of writing Part II, tentatively titled Shadeshifter, which will continue where Part I left off, adding links to the chain of the plot previously introduced, and strengthening some of the lingering threads left dangling in the wake of the Walker-Dark's passage through the city of Timberdam. 

These stories are being crafted as "Dark Fiction," carrying on from the "Gothic-Fiction and Fantasy" tradition, which combines dark moods with intense emotions into a tone spanning the spectrum of human passions. I am also a big fan of the epistolary format, using letters and other documents written from certain character's perspectives to inform the plot. It is my aim to utilize such devices towards a unique narrative which will be accessible and engaging to readers.

My interest in Patreon is that it allows for stimulating interactions between audience and author, and provides the kind of support which is difficult to come by when one is attempting to be successful in this ever-changing business of storytelling. Should I gain your support, I will be using the resources provided by you towards publishing costs (specifically ordering copies of my books to proof), and to build my presence in the market, creating marketing tools and expanding my reach through social media.

Wander with me, alongside my characters, through the grey mists between illumination and numbness, where we are either paralyzed by what we fear, or enlightened as we witness our potential through the prism of human experience, however shaded our perspectives, however distressing the struggles may be.
