Here’s what I’ve put on my Patreon since 27 August, when I last updated the blog with my Patreon stuffs. If you don’t support me, this is what you’ve missed out on just in the last 43 days….

This month will include more stuff at both the $7 and $20 tiers from Star Hoppers (about which I’ll be saying more soon, I promise), as well as some short stories I need to get done. I’m hoping to dive back into Feat of Clay soon, too. And while I’m not allowed to post the first drafts of the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness graphic novel scripts for the $20 patrons, I can post the occasional excerpt from them for the $7 folks.
I will have a movie review this month, probably of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and I’m also a couple months behind on vignettes, so look for two this month, as well as at least one more TV review (possibly of the new season of What We Do in the Shadows, possibly Only Murders in the Building, possibly the new season of Animal Kingdom,possibly the first season of What If…?, possibly some combination of those, or all four). And, of course, tons more pictures of small furry creatures………

I’m hoping that May will have some more drafts of chapters from Feat of Clay for the $20/month folks. Not sure what the May movie review will be, but I’ve (as always) got a huge backlog of TV shows to review. And the May vignette will be either Bram Gold or Super City Cops.
We’re getting more of President T’Rina! And maybe another President? One of my favorite characters in Discovery season three was Ni’Var President T’Rina, who was in charge of the united Vulcan and Romulan people. She’s in several scenes in the teaser trailer, which makes me very happy, as Tara Rosling played her with an impressive dignity and gravitas. There’s another character, who appears to be at least part Cardassian, who also seems to be the Federation President. As the guy who wrote the book on the Federation presidency, I’m very eager to a) find out of she really is the Federation President and if so, b) learn lots of things about her.

Expect The West Wing season 3 to be the next TV review, and I’ve still got fifteen shows I’ve watched that I want to review (with more shows that I’m still in the midst of watching). I may have a bonus movie review or two this month (I’ve rewatched Big Night and seen The Princess and the Frog recently, and have the urge to write about both), I still have to write January’s vignette, and there will be more excerpts and first looks from Feat of Clay.
So this is a really good time to support my Patreon. For a measly twenty bucks a month you get all that stuff listed above in particular. In general, you get monthly movie reviews, weekly excerpts from my works in progress, monthly vignettes featuring my original characters, regular doses of cat pictures, anywhere between one and five TV reviews a month, and first looks at my first drafts.
