About Ben Long

I've thought through many different ideas for a Patreon and some recent discussions with family and friends have brought me to the conclusion that I should share my ability to write compelling and authentic material that is both fictional and inspired. It'll be my secret what's real and what is imagined, but that's part of the fun! If you happen to stop by, leave a comment or two. If you happen to support me and join this exclusive adventure, I am eternally grateful.

My first goal is to finish a series of novels, the first being a novel named Elysium that I've been working out for a few years. Elysium follows the events of an Earth that has been mysteriously decimated by forces, natural or otherwise, that have left the air unbreathable and the environment too intense for contact by humans without protective suits. There is a legend of the Heart of Gaia, which may hold the keys to restoring Earth to its former glory, but that legend has been chased by a few generations of humans dedicating their lives in vain to the concept. Is it hope or insanity that drives the human race now?

I originally wanted to provide chapters to Elysium at least once a month because we all love regular updates and I want you to know that there is a concrete process of content that you are supporting by showing me your love and attention. The other stuff will be alongside the Elysium updates, so join the club and get access to all kinds of amazing content!

Now that I am very graciously supported by you, this level means I will be able to work less and provide more content. I'll branch out an start holding once a month writing workshops where the top five supporting patrons will get to advise me on some of the directions the novel could go and work on anything I have coming through the writing pipeline.
