My true love is writing short stories and I was thrilled to discover a website called Patreon, which allows me to post my stories and offer special rewards for readers. The more readers who support my writing, the more time I have to write new stories, and I’m extremely grateful for this opportunity. Please visit my Patreon page to sign-up or learn more about the rewards or you can  just keep on scrolling for the highlights:

• LEVEL ONE: A New Read Each Month!

This is your First Class ticket to read my work for just $1 per month!Mama's Sleeping

Some stories are brand new and some are heavily revised versions of previously published works. (I cannot help myself, everything gets revised forever if no one stops me!)

Each new story post includes a “cover image” like you see to the right, too, just for the fun of it.

In 2019, I may begin serializing at least one novel.

• LEVEL TWO: Exclusive Signed Limited Edition Chapbook!

One Candle Against the Night: The River TownYou will receive Level One’s reward PLUS I’ll be publishing a brand new signed Limited Edition chapbook twice per year exclusively for supporters at this level and above!

These are beautiful, signed chapbooks with a few extra production tweaks that you don’t usually see in this category including illustrated “faux marbled” inside-covers. (You can view some photos of the first one here.)

I started a serial novel with the first chapbook, but I’m switching gears to standalone short stories for the next few, so you’re not missing anything if you sign-up now!

• LEVEL THREE: All the above PLUS a signed Advance Review Copy!

AUPAll the above PLUS twice per year you’ll receive a SIGNED advance review copy of one of my books!

Review copies are trade paperback editions of books that are printed months before the actual finished book, so that reviewers and booksellers can read it early. Sometimes there are small changes made to the text or design between the printing of the review copy and the printing of the finished book shipped to readers.

Mostly, the review copy I send will be for a forthcoming work due out in the next few months, but in some cases I might use review copies for an older work that has already been published, depending on what’s on the schedule at the time of the mailing.

• LEVEL FOUR: All the Above PLUS an Exclusive Signed Trade Paperback!

Patreon StoriesAll the above PLUS I’ll be publishing an exclusive signed Limited Edition trade paperback of my work once per year!

This specific volume will only be printed once and will never be reprinted again. No eBook, no trade editions, no foreign editions, no eBooks, nothing for the masses, etc.

The editions I publish for my Patreon supporters will be the only version ever printed or published.

• LEVEL FIVE: Upgrade the Exclusive Signed Trade Paperback to a signed Limited Edition hardcover!

This level is just like Level Four, except you’ll receive the exclusive book printed as a Signed Limited Edition HARDCOVER instead of a paperback!


WalkingWithGhosts-HC-3Dtrade-post500All the above PLUS you receive a FREE copy of every new book of mine that’s published while you’re at this level: my short story collections, novellas, and novels, along with the anthologies I edit!

This includes eBooks, trade editions, audiobooks, and even Limited Editions. You’ll receive my new books and any new reprint editions of older books, too!

I hope to see you over at Patreon soon. Thank you in advance for your support!
