If you'd like to help support me and my work of any and all types, please do consider supporting me on Patreon. Here you will find details regarding all the many rewards offered to my Patreon supporters.

If you prefer one-time donations, you can also donate directly to my Paypal.

However, if you support my Patreon, you get lots of goodies in return!

I use my Patreon, first and foremost, as a way to connect with my supporters. I will directly communicate with those so generously supporting my work. For all your belief in me and your support of my creative efforts, I also do my best to give you back as much as I can.

For more info on each tier, please see the tier list on Patreon itself.

All tier art is of my Wulfgard protagonist Tom Drake in various levels of werewolf transformation; all are drawn by my brother, Justin RR "Saber-Scorpion" Stebbins.

The following are details regarding each and every Patreon reward...

Starting at the $1 Packmate tier, all patrons will receive access to my Journals and all big quarterly updates.
The journals include Writing Journals, Folklore and Research Journals, Lore Journals, Art Journals, Character Journals, and the more generalized Update Journals wherein I discuss my progress with my various current projects. In these journals, I discuss the subject at hand in great detail, with a close behind-the-scenes look at my work, my writing process, my research, and how I create the things that I do, etc. You will also get to vote on upcoming journals and tell me what you'd like to read about!

Vote on upcoming folklore facts

Also starting at the $1 Packmate tier is access to polls where you can vote on my upcoming folklore facts. These include Werewolf Facts, Vampire Facts, and the more generalized Folklore Facts.

The polls will include several options to choose from, and patrons can vote for whichever they would like to read about next!

Discord Color and Patron Channel Access

Also starting at the $1 Packmate tier is access to the Patron Tower channel on my personal Discord server (be sure to join that; don't worry, we don't bite, believe it or not)! The patron channel is where I and all your fellow patrons discuss the exclusive stuff you'll be seeing after you join my pack.

Each patron tier also gets a unique color on the discord! Please note: you can opt out of the tier color system and have a default Patron role/color if you don't want everyone to know what tier you're at. Just let me know that you don't want to receive your tier role/color and I will just give you the general role that allows access instead.

Access to Patreon-Exclusive Writing + Monthly Previews
(a big one!)

Starting at the $5 Shadewalker tier, you will gain access to ALL the writing I post exclusive to my Patreon! This includes all-new exclusive looks at my upcoming publications, both fiction and nonfiction! It also includes any potential deleted scenes, vignettes, and other work I may post.

The previews will be everything from chapters of a book, novellas, and previews of or sometimes even completed short stories, to sections of non-fiction books such as my werewolf and folklore publications.

I consider this to be one of the most important things I offer on my Patreon. These previews are generally (but not always) rough drafts.

These previews are 100% exclusive and can appear a year or even many years ahead of a work's publication!

You'll be the first to see and hear about everything I'm working on next, and you'll see these things in their rough iterations; some undergo fairly to very drastic edits before publication, so you will only see some of them in their original forms right here. You'll also meet upcoming characters long before they are shared with the public.

Special Thanks
(a big deal!)

Starting at the $10 Mooncaller tier, you will receive credit in the Special Thanks section at the back of all my future works (for as long as you remain a patron)! These credits are in alphabetical order by name. I include these special thanks in all my books, both fiction and non-fiction.

If you back me for this tier, please message me on Patreon and let me know how you would like to be credited in future works. You can also opt out of being credited, if you so desire.

Polls About Next Books
(also a big deal!)

Starting at the $20 Huntmaster tier, I will sometimes post big polls about what I should focus on next. This can include the next novel, short story collection, novella series, stand-alone novella, non-fiction work, etc., and more.

This is a big deal because you will be helping me decide exactly what to focus on for up to the next year or several years! This is a big decision, and your vote very much counts. I always take into account patron voices when deciding my next project(s).

These don't come around too often because I have to publish works in order to continue to new works, but they pop up now and then as I get larger works (novels and other large books) and "shorter" works (novellas, short story collections, etc) published, so they are definitely something to watch out for.

All Paperback Books Upon Release (signed) + other exclusives!
Starting at the $50 Nightlord tier, you will receive a signed paperback copy of every book I publish as soon as it is published (for as long as you are a patron) AND any and all physical goodie rewards/promos that I run (for as long as you are a patron)!
The other physical goodies include a variety of things; some I have offered in the past include but aren't necessarily limited to:
  • Custom and exclusive LEGO minifigs of Wulfgard and Nova Refuge characters (and other characters from my potential future fiction)
  • Custom stickers (usually Wulfgard and/or Nova Refuge)
  • Custom bookmarks
  • Assorted handmade goodies
  • Signed thank-you and/or holiday cards, sometimes with custom stationary (and fun wax seals that hint at upcoming works)
  • A Christmas card, every year at the most wonderful time of the year (yay!)
And there might be more stuff in the future, too!
Please note not every book release will be accompanied by other physical goodies.

My Endless Gratitude + Hardback Book Option
& all my eternal gratitude
First of all, my deepest thanks for any support at this tier! I am endlessly grateful for your generosity.
Starting at the $100 Apex Predator tier...
  • You may choose to receive a hardback instead of a paperback edition of new releases (when applicable; not all of my books will have hardback releases, especially at launch!)
  • All Apex Predators can download my ebooks free of charge; just ask me.
  • You will receive any exclusive edition limited-run releases I ever do of hardback books
  • All previous rewards, of course, including all other physical goodies, etc
The biggest thing you'll get out of being an Apex Predator is my eternal gratitude and knowing that you are truly integral to letting me do what I love and create my works. I honestly wish, deeply, that I had more I knew of to offer to anyone so generous as to support me at this tier. This kind of support means the world to me.


All I ask in return from my wonderful patrons is that you do not share anything I post exclusively on Patreon. This means no discussion of previews, characters seen therein, sharing of quotes or information, or anything else, outside of the Patron-exclusive channel on the discord and/or on the Patreon posts themselves.

Previews posted on my Patreon are intended for patrons only. They need to maintain exclusivity, absolutely, until I publish these works myself on a public level. This not only includes the story/stories and their events but also the characters and character names and appearances, lore, and everything else, especially as my characters are the centerpiece of my writing.

I hope you'll consider becoming a member of my pack! I would love to have you!

I also welcome questions from patrons and potential patrons; please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!

For those who have never used Patreon before:

Support is done via a monthly (recurring!) payment system, based on your chosen tier. For each tier, you will receive different rewards. Please remember that you are under absolutely no obligation to maintain your monthly payment support!

You can change to a lower tier or cancel whenever you like, as it suits you. Any support you can offer is appreciated, and I will never begrudge anyone for lowering their amount or canceling. I certainly understand any monetary issues.

If you're unable to support on Patreon, at least sign up for my free newsletter! Patreon will net you a lot more goodies and more (see below), but you can always stay up to date with my work for free.

(Note: All patrons receive everything and more that is found in my newsletter; I do not encourage supporting patrons to also subscribe to my newsletter, as it will double up.)
