Support the Sequel! A Whitewashed Tomb Continues.

bestbooks

I believe that stories shape the world.

From the earliest cave-man drawings to 21st century Hollywood films, mankind has used the art of story to communicate what really matters. Through books, movies, poetry, plays, music, dance, art, and so much more, we've celebrated and lamented fragments of what it means to be human. A story can ignite passion, inspire heroism, instill hope.

For love of my fellow earthlings and this life we all share, I've embarked on writing stories in the genre of dystopian fiction. My debut novel, A Whitewashed Tomb, is about a young woman named Tabitha, whose only chance at finding her estranged father is to hunt him down for the corrupt authorities. (Read more here.)

Tabitha's story isn't over, and with your help, it can continue through a platform called Patreon.

It's simple: With your support of just a few bucks per month, I can prioritize writing the sequel to A Whitewashed Tomb. Without you, I have to set Tabitha aside for less exciting projects that pay for my groceries. Will you make the pledge to support good stories?

When you join my team of patrons, you'll get to be part of the writing process with me. Depending on your pledge level, you'll have access to early drafts, live video chat sessions, exclusive material not included in the book, glimpses into my process, a book club study guide, the real and raw side of lil ol' me, and more.

Writing is a lonely business. I'm so happy to have you along for the journey. From Tabitha, Ambrose, and all your fictional friends in A Whitewashed Tomb, THANK YOU for your support!
