War looms over the kingdom and a series of grisly murders strike the working girls of Wyvern's Crest. City guardsman Gabriel has set out to find the killer, but will he succeed when the people of the city are turning to the priests of the God of Justice to protect them, there is serious talk of the city guard being disbanded, and even the crown seems to be involved in protecting the identity of the person behind the crimes?

The Queen's Champion is the working title of this high fantasy thriller set in a world that is entering an industrial revolution and being terrorized by a Jack the Ripper style murderder.

Tiers
Researcher
$1 or more per month

This is where I drop my research, so if you are looking for information on fantasy or the medieval period - well, this might be the tier for you.


This will focus less on my novels and more on the research that I am doing for those novels.


Updates will be sporaddic, but there will be at least a few per month on topics such as:

  • The history of magic and witchcraft
  • The ruling classes of medieval Europe
  • Ancient religions
  • Primitive peoples
  • Medieval Warfare

And much more.


Broad topics will include: high fantasy, steampunk, history, and more.


Since I am not just a fantasy writer, you might also find SciFi or western topics from time to time.


For now: expect fantasy and historical research from around the Victorian era.

Casual Fan or Fellow Writer
$2 or more per month

This is the level for my fellow writers and casual fans who want to help out a struggling writer.


I'll share:

  • Information on writing.
  • Writing resources.
  • Tips and tricks.
  • What-have-you.

Mainly things that can help others in the writing process.


There will likely be a bit about my books and what I am doing, but this tier is more about the craft of writing and what I am finding to help with my novel process than about what I am working on.

Fan
$5 or more per month

Daily posts for those who really want to see me publish my novels.


In this tier I share:


  • How I am working.
  • How my story changes.
  • What it is that causes me to make those changes.
  • Snippets of the story in rough draft or outline form.
  • Looks at how I am writing my novels.
  • Snippets of scenes that I am working on while they are still being developed.
  • More detailed information on my creative process.


This is the tier for people who want to know how I built the story and how it changed while I was working on it.


Want to see a first time novelest's daily struggle with the creation process? That is what you get here for the price of a cup of coffee a week.


*NOTE: While this is planned to be a daily update, there will be days when I just can not post because of life getting in the way. If I am really sick, or if I have lost power, etc, I might not be able to post every day. I will, however, do my best to post daily.

Spoiled Fan or Stalker
$10 or more per month

I made this tier for two purposes:

  • As a personal writing journal for me
      and
  • For those who really believe in my efforts, want to see all the behind the scenes details, and want to assure I keep my butt in the chair and get this novel (and others) wrote.


This is the tier for people who want to read spoilers, maybe to get a better idea of my creative process and really understand why I am making the decisions I am about the story, maybe because they really don't mind spoilers.


At its core this is my writing journal, and as such it pretty much contains stalker levels of information. Not only about my novel process, and the secrets only I know about the stories, but about my personal life. These posts have information not only on the story, but also about what is happening in my life; especially when those events are impacting my writing. It is not something I am intendeing to be for the average fan of my work, which is why the hefty payment level.

Goals
$0 of $20 per month
Every goal list needs to start somewhere. $20 does not seem like much, but this little amount is enough to keep the place I live warm for almost a week. Or it can buy food. Go toward helping to pay a bill... $20 does not seem like a lot, but I've never really needed much.
