Release Mose Kimble story
$1,000 per month
I will release one chapter a week of this lesbian detective story that is set in Detroit: Mose Kimble is a woman living in Detroit who does favours for people. She has an office, a couple employees, and lot of people who owe her. One day a man walks into her office who says he needs help finding a missing woman. Problem is, it's a woman missing from the internet; he doesn't know her real name, or what she looks like. But Mose likes a challenge so she decides to try to help. Meanwhile, the woman who lives across the hall from Mose, Rena Walkowski, is beginning to play a bigger part in her life, particularly after she receives a distressing call from Rena about an asshole at work who just won't leave her alone. Mose has no problem making sure he will leave her alone for the forseeable future. As Mose and Rena's relationship gets more complicated, trying to find the missing woman gets more dangerous. Mose will end up taking too many risks and can only hope it turns out for the best, for both her love life, and her life expectancy.


Katie West is a photographer, teacher, writer, feminist, cat lady, and trekkie from Toronto, Canada. She is usually inappropriate, but in an admirable way.

What do you do?
I take naked pictures of myself and post them on the internet. I make lo-fi videos and post them on the internet. I take pictures of my cats and post them on the internet. I write about loving yourself, sex, bodies, being a nice person, being a boss, and giving no fucks about things that really don't deserve them and post it on the internet

I like creating connections with people, even if those connections are simply the acknowledgement of a shared experience or the recognition of a shared sentiment. The internet is for connection and sharing (and cats). I want to continue to encourage this connection.

So what do you want from me?
I would really like it if you helped me to continue to be an honest, body-positive, sex-positive, pizza-positive creator. 

All support that comes to me through Patreon will be put back into my art. This could mean anything from helping to pay for gas to drive to a cool location to helping me to purchase a new lens. It could also mean helping me develop film or purchasing one of my oft-needed camera remotes! 

That all sounds legit, Katie. But if I become a patron, will you address me in all correspondence as "Esteemed Patron of the Arts" and can I wear ruffled shirts and fancy hats?

Wait. Am I pledging per image, per story, per video? That's a lot!
Because I am creating so much content, I've opted to go for monthly pledge amounts. This means that every month I will be creating a bunch of stuff and you will give the same regardless.

If I decide to become an Esteemed Patron of Your Art, what's in it for me?
So glad you asked! In addition to being a wonderful person to whom I am eternally grateful, all my patrons will get access to a patrons-only stream that will have back stories on my daily photos along with outtakes from each day. There are also different reward levels that can get you anything from videos, to high-quality prints, to photos of my cats, to hand-written love letters.
(I'll still be posting my 365 Project on Tumblr for free, so if you can't become a patron, you won't be missing out on any daily content.)

Thank you very much for being badass.
Katie West!

Here is a picture of me at the Manhattan Beach Aquarium. See how excited I am? That is only a fraction of how excited I am that you might become a patron. SERIOUSLY.
