I’m gearing up to FINALLY begin releasing the Words & Pictures periodical via my Patreon (now that I’ve figured out how to viably produce a print edition along with the PDFs), but I’ve also chosen to treat Patreon like a James Owen Subscription System, giving patrons downloadable versions of my current work, and early FREE downloads of upcoming books, like the long-awaited followups to the Meditations series and the Annotations to my Imaginarium Geographica books.
Anyone pledging at the $1 level and above can already get free downloads of the entire Meditations Trilogy, including the ever-popular DRAWING OUT THE DRAGONS. I’ve just updated it to include the high-resolution downloads of ALL FOUR of my ALL THE COLORS OF MAGIC coloring books, free to patrons at the $5 level and above. And patrons at the $10 level can also get the massive ESSENTIAL STARCHILD book! Additionally, when we reach FIFTY patrons, I’m going to add the PDF of my short story collection THE UNUSUAL MOTION OF STRANGE BEASTS, free for EVERYONE at any level.
I’m hoping to start pouring all of the works-in-progress into Words & Pictures. It’s been a long time coming, and I am very, very grateful for the supporters who have continued to back me through obstacles, illnesses, and personal difficulties. But I’m more focused than ever on Doing Good Work, and sharing it here. I hope you’ll take a look, consider supporting my Patreon, and get some good books. More are on the way. 🙂
