TL;DR: Your patronage buys me baby-free time to make things for you.

After writing full time for three years, I took a hiatus, during which I had a baby. I’ve come to Patreon because I love my people (that’s you) and I love writing and I want to do more of it.

Trouble is, I can’t crank the word machine for six hours a day anymore. Someone has to take care of this miniature human, and as long as that’s me all day, every day, writing happens in stolen moments between babysleeps (and sometimes not even then).

That’s where you come in.

Patreon is a patronage platform in the old-school “I pay you to make art for me” sense, which is exactly what you’re doing.

Your patronage is what powers the writing machine: It buys me time.

It pays babysitters.
It books Airbnbs for immersive writing retreats.
It keeps the dishwasher running.
It pays student loans so I can be home with Mackenzie and write.
One day, it will fully pay for daycare.

It also makes you special—you’re insiders, superfans, allies, comrades, (accomplices). You’re my team.

And, much like Fantasia, the more the team grows, the more I get paid for my writing, the more time I have to write, the more I can create, the more magnificent the Patreon will become.

Every novel.
Every short story.
Every poem.
Every recording.
Every video.
Every blog post.

It all comes to you first. No waiting, no hype—just good, good words.

As a patron, you’ll get digital copies of whatever I write, plus physical copies at higher levels. You’ll also get neat perks like sneak peeks at works in progress, the ability to weigh in on what I’m working on, and more.

Everything I make will eventually go public in one form or another. Some will be free, some will be published, but you’ll get to read/hear/see it long before anyone else and get it delivered straight to you.

Man, I love the internet.

Thank you times a bajillion for joining me here, for believing in me, and for trusting me. I may not know what the future holds, but what I do know is that no matter how big or small our team is, I’ll still be here creating for you.

If you love what I do and want to express that in a tangible way while also getting cool insider perks
