Hey! Hello! I'm Amanda (or Bear). I'm a writer, but I'm also disabled (aka super mentally ill; major depression [plus seasonal affective disorder] and anxiety since I was in elementary school) so I can't work a traditional job. I especially can't work a traditional job and write; I had to quit my last job as a copywriter for a website publishing company in 2016 and I've been supporting myself with freelance editing ever since.
So why Patreon?
I set up Patreon to help me gain an audience and to earn a steady income once I saw how much better my mental health got when I was able to focus full time on my writing. If I don't have Panic Mode activated over my bank account, I can stay healthier and able to work, which means actually getting to do the thing I wanna make a career out of.
If you want to support me but can't afford to spend money monthly, you can buy me a coffee!
Witches, werewolves, metahumans, monsters, ghostie goos? You'll find it all in my books! I also have #OwnVoices content with bisexuality, mental illness (depression/anxiety), being agender, and trauma. I mostly focus on dark fantasy/urban fantasy. I tend to write a mix of YA and NA/Adult; my YA books are pretty much the books I wish I had when I was a teenager and my adult are pretty much the...books I wish I had as an adult lmao.
I'm currently focusing on Blood Cult Boogie, but I also have short stories to shop around!
Regardless of your pledge tier, you can expect some pretty cool stuff:
♦Full chapters as I write them (the higher tier rewards get to see edited versions!)
♦Behind the scenes planning, character info, series bibles with world building, etc.
♦Moodboards -- including ones for your characters! ($3 pledges)
♦Early reads of short stories!
if i can cover my monthly bills, i'll start a newsletter! info about where i'm at in my writing process, submissions, short story ideas, etc.
