leaflife & oberon …

19 June, 2017

Telepathic communication and strange new worlds … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my June Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st July, you will be able to access the July Rewards.
Once published, my books need to be promoted. This can only be done effectively if I pay established companies to promote my novels etc. Therefore, I am seeking to promote my books on a weekly basis and to do that properly, I need at least $30 per month. Without promotion I cannot sell my work. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In July, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished elfje sequence about the brief life of leaves and/or a previously unpublished story about a diminutive character who finds himself lost in a fairy tale …
See you at Patreon soon!

an odyssey of ashes …

21 March, 2017

A detective story and a yearning for Spring … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my March Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st April, you will be able to access the April Rewards.
Once published, my books need to be promoted. This can only be done effectively if I pay established companies to promote my novels etc. Therefore, I am seeking to promote my books on a weekly basis and to do that properly, I need at least $30 per month. Without promotion I cannot sell my work and, as I am currently unemployed, I have no means of funding myself. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In April, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished cinquain/haiku/lantune sequence about journeying through Space and/or a previously unpublished story about a man who no longer has a place to call home …

Patreon

27 April, 2016
A few weeks ago I posted about all my Free Reads but didn’t get much interest in them. Why? I’ve always been told that you have to have free stuff to give to your followers. Is this a lie? Or is my work just not interesting enough?
So, this week, I’m going to tell you about my writing that you can pay to read! There is, of course, my novel Dragonscale Leggings available in paperback at most online stores.
And, I’ve recently launched a campaign at Patreon. I need money in order to self-publish. I just don’t earn enough to actually be able to pay out for my books to be published. I’m fed up with trying the traditional routes, because one, no one ever gets back to me and two, on the odd occasion I have been offered a contract, I would have earned so little, it wasn’t worth it.
Since having cancer 2 years ago, I am more determined than ever to have my work published. This is why I am now on Patreon to gather patrons who will support me with as little as $1 or $5 a month so that I can afford to get my novels published. In return, I will post on Patreon an unpublished short story and poem for my supporters to read.
You can, at last, “meet” me online. I’ve posted my first ever video, introducing myself at Patreon. I am naturally shy and reserved, and, since having cancer, I have become even more of a recluse. Making the video was extremely painful. The final product came after 3 days of recording. What do you think?
