The battle hardened of the Gallowglas Army!
In addition to the lower ranks, sergeants gain the following rewards:
* Copies of all books in dead tree format. (Print, signed and personalized, if you wish.)
* Can choose to be a beta reader of all work.
* Become Tuckerized in my works. That is, when I'm in need of a character name for a story, I will look through the list of Marines and see if I can modify any of the names on the list to fit the character.
* I will hand-write your monthly stopwatch story and mail it to you.
* Access to rantings, ravings, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the trials, tribulations, and grim underbelly of life as a struggling creative.
Now that I've finished grad school, I'm working on figuring out which directions I want to take my writing. That includes what I want to do with my Patreon. I'd made an ambitious plan for what I was going to do, and promptly ignored it because I was still too close out of grad school to really be objective about direction and goals.
So... Much like my writing, this will be very much a work in progress.
I will also start making use of the LENS feature on the Patreon app. This lets me share pictures and videos that last for 24 hours. You'll get super secret sneak peeks into the goings on in my creative life, creative griping when things go wrong, and never know who I might run into at conventions and conferences.
