Well, we’ve been live on Patreon for a week, and (to my surprise!) we’ve already received a pledge! Awesome.
Meanwhile, I’ve decided on a few things:
(1) – I will continue to post Patreon only artwork, EXCLUSIVELY on the creator page for humans who want to follow along. (There are actually TWO pieces of artwork up in the blog posts already, and they are only SEE-ABLE on the Patreon page!)
(2) – For those willing to cough up some dough (even a dollar a month) I’ve decided that I’m going to post, in serial form, my entire, unpublished, 37,000-word urban fantasy novella, ALLEN TOMBES – FIRE FROM WATER. It’s one of those “teen discovers he can see monsters” type of stories in which I’ve stolen liberally from things like Harry Potter and Star Wars, although my tale takes place in the modern world in a standard city (not far, far away or in the Wizarding World.) Plus, my brain is broken, so the story gets pretty weird. I’m proud of the story, though. It’s got lots of monsters, magic, psychic powers, secret organizations, and a dark, spectral force bent on controlling or destroying humankind! And blood. I’m big on blood! I’ll probably post a few chapters per week until the entire novella is up, and it will ONLY be available to patrons who contribute a buck or more per month!
So there you go! We’ll get to that $100.00 mark yet! (Hopefully before the online space for the site gets too full!!!) Spread the word, and check back every once in a while for exclusive artwork, weird words, and of course that FANCY story!
