Greetings, readers! You are a reader, right? I hope so -- stories and books are awesome!
I also hope you've wandered to my Patreon page because you like my stories. I get all teary and gushy inside when I find out someone enjoys my writing. But if you don't know much about me or my writing, dark fantasy tales are my addiction of choice. This includes epic, urban, romantic, and humor -- all of my fantasy has a bit of a dark bent to it.
I've delved into the waters of indie publishing, and let me tell you, while I'm enjoying getting my work out there, it's not without its cost! That would be time and money. Although I've been writing for over two decades (and have studied creative writing extensively -- I have an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University), it's still a steep hill to the top...or even halfway to the top.
There's not much I can do about that whole time thing, at least not until my kids get older. What I'd give for my toddler to be old enough to start Kindergarten! But I'm working with what I have, trying to write and publish within my limits. The money thing, though, now I know I can work on that a little more. And that's what brought me to Patreon.
Writing. Nothing I love more than uncovering new characters and their worlds. So, I figured, why not offer some of my shorter writing to my fans, to the people who wish to support me along my writing and publishing journey?
On my Patreon page I'll post flash fiction stories and poems, usually all fantasy related, but I may wander off that path for brief moments. Pledges are currently per creation, and I intend to post about one story or poem per month -- no more than two if I'm feeling especially inspired. This is so I keep myself working on my other stories and novels for publication.
And I want to send a huge thank you to anyone who does decide to pledge. You all rock and are awesome readers, and knowing that you like my writing gives me a huge grin (and that teary and gushy stuff I mentioned earlier)!
Thank you so much, and happy reading!
