About M. Clifford


AS A FAN OF MY WRITING AND VIDEOS, YOUR REGULAR FINANCIAL SUPPORT GIVES ME THE ABILITY TO FOCUS ALL MY ENERGIES ON CREATING MORE CONTENT, AND AT A HIGHER QUALITY.

I have a lot more to add than this page. Trust me. I'm an indie writer. It's what I do. (insert "resting Muggle face") But today, for the early adopters that most likely discovered me through my Harry Potter fanfiction on Wattpad, here's all you need to know:

Patreon is a platform that allows a community of superfans to pledge ongoing support for as little as 25 cents a week.  I realize that doesn't seem like much, but when provided collectively, it gives an artist like me the ability to invest in my own future and provide predictable security where fluctuating books sales cannot. It's 100% completely optional. All my fanfiction (which has already been written) will be free forever and posted exclusively on Wattpad. This is in no way a transaction. It is a recurring, complimentary donation to help fund my ability to become a full-time writer. I love to write books. I'd almost say that I need to write books. I've never considered the money. That was never important to me, until I realized that my writing time was disappearing.  As of now, I have about 4 hours a week to devote to my passion.  And, as a full-time working dad, even counting on 4 free hours is a stretch. Your support is hugely appreciated, and my little family thanks you!

It's the 20th of June, and I'm literally in the first days of this.  You should expect that this page will be changing frequently in the coming days, and all for the better!  This whole thing is honestly 1 part experiment, 1 part epic journey, and 5 parts faith. Over the next few weeks, I'll be rolling out higher tiers of support and explaining the individual benefits of each level, which will include special giveaways, exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses into what I'm up to, google hangouts, author materials for fellow Wattpaders, a chance to get my advice and a personal review on your writing project or book, recurring episodes of a Harry-Potter themed Puppet Show, fun collaborations, and opportunities for you to *become* a part of the writing process for my next big saga (something I've been working on in secret for basically ever).

My dream series, which resembles a mix of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, has gone nowhere for years, because I can't give it the time. At this point, I've become a walking Maya Angelou quote - "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." Oh, the suffering I've endured for my art! But wait, I don't have to be a starving artist, right?

To the patrons who are supporting me: We are kindred spirits. Come, raise your wands. This is YOUR community. I am YOUR author. Together we are going to create magic.

And while I might not be the next J.K. Rowling, I ask that you remember how our dear Jo was only able to create Harry Potter and the Wizarding World because she was provided with financial assistance by the British government. To think...if she hadn't gotten the necessary funds to sustain her life...! Where would all of us be today? I'd like to say I could do this without you, but in all honesty, I don't think I can. I tell stories and...that's where the story seems to be headed. My pride tells me not to step into the harsh realities of future chapters, but I have to accept that it's okay to ask for a boost from those who believe in you. So, here we go.

You've read my work, and if you're here because you like my writing and want to help me create more, then thank you.  I realize that I'm taking a huge risk by even making this page, but oh well... I'm done waiting for things to work out on their own. I'll let my readers decide for me, and launch with the hopeful words of Albus Dumbledore in my ears.

"Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it."
