If you’re considering this, thank you so much for really caring about my success! If you want to invest in my continued writing career, pre-order 50 copies of Ocularum, and you will receive a free copy of every book, novella, anthology, chapbook, photo book, art book, non-fiction book, or other publication I contribute to for the rest of my life (so long as you alert me to every address change). If the book is available in print, you will receive a print and digital copy. If only digital, you will receive a digital copy. Your name will be included in the acknowledgements section of Ocularum (and each book I publish thereafter), listed as a Lifetime Patron. You may elect to be acknowledged in haiku form, in which case, I will prepare a haiku for you to be included. You will also get an invite to the official launch party, which may or may not be virtual depending on how public health develops. All future shipments of books will include free shipping. I haven’t checked the actuarial tables yet, but I expect to live a good 40 - 50 years more, so start your collection now!

$1500 Live in Lumin Package

0 readers

“Do you wish you could live in Lumin? I have one character that needs a name, and if you want it to be you (or to pick it), this is the package for you. Your character could play a major role in a critical part of Ocularum and to continue as a recurring character in Clavis and Shillelagh. This character’s already been written into the story and just needs a name and maybe a description! Of course, this package includes signed copies of books, electronic and audio version up to 10 of each as requested, patron status on my website, and a haiku!”
