Maybe the photos I’ve been posting from my Patreon-only flash fiction project aren’t enticing to you? How about the opening to my latest mini opus, “A Parable of Beauty, Vanity, Greed, and Witchery”?
(Click the image for a larger version if needed.)
Actually, this latest story is a little over 2,500 words, so I don’t think it qualifies as flash fiction anymore. But that just means more bang for your Patreon buck!
That’s right: You’ll have to join my Patreon — only $1, cheap! — to read this story and a whole bunch of others; plus I’m adding a new one each week. Patreon patrons can also read these stories at my portfolio site, MaryAnnJohanson.com, under the flash fiction tag.
This project is to get the juices of my fiction lobe flowing for a much bigger fiction project, a sci-fi series, which I hope to start soon. Patreon patrons will get early access to the installments of that (before they are made available for sale to anyone), as well as a way to get in on other boons that I’m developing now. Your Patreon patronage helps support my film criticism too!
Please don’t make me get a corporate desk job. It would kill me, and you would miss out on all the cool stuff I have coming up!
Thank you. And a huge thank you to those who have already joined me on Patreon!
