Exclusive Content from Brian James Freeman

My first love has always been writing short stories, and now Patreon allows me to publish my work directly for the readers who like my work the most, which has been a huge game changer in the world of writing and creating.

I also post “behind the scenes” and “sneak peek” information about Lividian Publications, which I founded in large part because of my Patreon supporters.

In addition to writing, I really love publishing special editions (chapbooks, Limited Editions, Lettered Editions, etc), so I’ve created several different Rewards Levels, which you can read about on the JOIN page.

Once you’re signed up to support my work on Patreon, please visit the virtual Table of Contents I’ve created below for quick links to all kinds of content I’ve posted since 2017. And if you run into any trouble, please don’t hesitate to email me for help. Thank you!
