Once upon a lifetime ago, I was a full-time writer and editor. (No, really.) Now, I'm a full-time, part-time employee for several different iterations of locations. I social for a slew of medias, I vacuum for X number of Ys, and I clerk at a second-hand store filled with treasures.

Over the (holy fuck) decades, I've penned pieces for Playgirl & Penthouse, edited for Penthouse Variations, and compiled anthologies for Harlequin Spice, Plume, Masquerade Books, and others. Publishers Weekly called me "hot and honest," which lit my neon bright.

I've lost track of how many novels I've written, but I sold my first at 23—and I've never looked at it again. Novellas are my current love gone mad—and my goal is to post the stories in pieces here before doing final edits and releasing them to the wild. Last year, I managed to complete seven projects with your immeasurable assistance.

Now that I think about it, I'm *still* a full-time writer. That is, the words come constantly in the steady flow as they ever did. The way I let them go is the only thing that's changed. Thank you for being there to catch them.

XXX,
Alison

Serials delight me. Currently, you can read up through Chapter 23 of "The Shift Key," the opening chapters of a May/December novel "The Great Distraction," and the start of "The Bad Hotel," which is keeping me up at night.


$1/month also opens the door to the Trollop Book Club. I'll be posting (and hopefully discussing with you!) the latest selection. Right now, we're reading books about The Kinks.

Every month, I will send you a postcard—yes, through the actual mail. On the back, you'll find one of my favorite quotations. I'm a postcard fiend. I have been collecting for years, but I'm making these by hand.

Also expect Valentine's Day missives and celebratory cards for other holidays. (There's usually glitter in my hair.) If you let me know when your birthday is, I will send you a card!

Each month, I will post at least one original short story (500-word microfiction or full-length). Something that has never appeared anywhere else. I'm actually building an anthology online—and I'm adding each story to the Table of Contents. So you'll easily be able to peruse all the previously posted pieces. If you'd like a postcard, too, please send me a message with your snail mail address. 
Shot in the Dark

I will snail mail you a piece of microfiction. In this age of high-tech, my words will show up in your actual mailbox. Most likely, in a colorful envelope. Possibly, with a crocheted ring or Fortune Fish tucked inside. (I'm all about the unexpected.)
Slow Brew
$15 or more per month 1 patron
This year, I started work on a nonfiction book filled with challenges. At first, this was simply a list. Then it grew, and morphed, and shifted. Slow Brew brims with ideas for exploring your creative side. Perfect, I hope, for any type of writer or artist. (And aren't we all, at some level?) Of course, you'll get all of the other perks, too! (What's life without perks?) Here is the crazy fucking table of contents. (That's my official name!)
Mocha

You'll receive one of my matchbox stories every month—tiny stories tucked into glossy, unique matchboxes. You'll be the envy of all your friends! (Plus, you will receive all of the other rewards, too.)
Stain on My Notebook
$25 or more per month 2 patrons
Vintage Alison Tyler... Yes, I will (finally) be putting up my first novels. (Chapter by chapter.) Ones that have simply disappeared into the ether—like a coffee stain on an old notebook. I'm a little scared. But I've always been into archaeology. This is Ancient Erotica, Alison Tyler style. Find the intro here.

I obsess over yarn. At this level, every other month I'll send you fingerless gloves or a scarf... or possibly a hat!


(You'll receive all of the other rewards, as well.)

Plaid of the Month Club: If you are as into plaid as I am, then this is the tier for you! I will find you a used but in excellent condition beautiful plaid shirt each month in your size. And who knows? I might tuck one of my vintage paperbacks in with the shirt as a surprise! Tell me your favorite colors, and I'll do my best to make your plaid-iest dreams come true!

Writing is my life. I forgo sleep—and often food—to work. (Although never coffee. I always have my coffee.) This level is a VIP level. A hero level. It says to me that I've managed to reach someone with what I've written. That's like a neon kiss. 


You'll receive all of the previous awards, of course. Plus, I'll send you a few of my favorite things: coffee, book, soap... An Alison Tyler care package. Just for you!

Goals
$239 of $250 per month
You know that feeling of being on the right track? No? Me, neither. I'm usually lost somewhere, trying to find my keys or my car or a shoe. But at this point, I feel as if I'm at least heading in the right direction. Taking control of who owns my words (me!) is a major turning point in my career. Seriously. I'm the boss! How cool is that? Now, if only I could get the hang of casual Fridays.
