About Nathan Smith Jones
I thought about putting things on the dragonkyn website----updates, blogs, etc., but since I've decided to take my work DIRECTLY TO YOU, THE DRAGONKYN FANS AND THE CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT ELSE IS UP MY PROVERBIAL SLEEVE as a writer, I've decided that this Patreon page will be home to it all.
Check out the great rewards to the right. If you'd like to know more, keep reading!
(say the following with tired, gravelly voice and an epic, 'British' dialect)
Bereft of much of my time, for years my wife and children's patience have run thin on my artistic pursuits. My need to provide for them at constant war with my demonic need---this LUST---to tell stories. I alone fight this battle, and it shall be won....it shall be won in due time....
(end epic, British dialect)
(Yes, I love writing, even when it comes in the form of the playful, over-the-top stuff above.)
But it's true: My wife and kids have been very patient with my many attempts to write books and films for a living. Because they've also informed me that they like to eat at least once a day, I need you to be my patron so I can (finally!) write for a living so I can quit one of my jobs.
Nights, weekends, and holidays, I worked three years on my novel, DRAGONKYN, and I must say I've been very happy with the result. People are talking about it. It's exciting. It's gaining a faithful audience, but I really want that audience to find me here on Patreon.
Here are a few quotes from people (who are not my mother) saying how great it is:
"...sure to work quick, indelible magic on audiences." ---Kirkus Reviews
"Leaves you hoping for a sequel!" ---Deseret News
"An exciting blast of dragon wizardry on the Y.A. fantasy landscape." ---Richard Paul Evans (New York Times best-selling author of the Michael Vey series)
The fan club REALLY doesn't want to wait for five years (my ETA without support) for books 2 and 3, and this is where you come in.
EXCITING THINGS HAPPENING:
I have a NEW story in the DRAGONKYN universe, and ONLY PATREON SUPPORTERS GET IT...A YEAR BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE!
It's called 'ILONA': a Dragonkyn Story,' about Ilona, a Russian-American 19-year old loner whose powers are beyond imaginable but, like Marc, at first she doesn't know the extent of her identity.
I will releasing this new story, bit by bit, every few months, delivered right here.
Also, Patreon supporters will get the Micro-Blog, the N.A.T.E. podcast, and other goodies ONLY patrons can get, plus additional rewards at the various patron levels. Patrons can also weigh in not only on what Nate works on, but on the CONTENT ITSELF! This is rare and exciting.
THE MORE PATRONS I GET, THE MORE BOOKS AND STORIES I CAN OFFER, AND THE MORE PEOPLE I CAN HIRE TO OFFER MORE PODCASTS, as well as MORE EXTRAS. Life is short, so let's have fun!
(yes, the patrons at the highest levels will be limited, because ultimately I need time to write, not just spend time and money mailing cool things all over the world).
I believe in dreams, and I believe in stories. Here's to dreams coming true beyond our wildest expectations.
And if you're a writer, and you're not getting anywhere with your writing, ask yourself: what else would I do? Do I love the process or not?
