Aria Glazki is creating Love Stories

I'm Aria Glazki, a romance author who occasionally dabbles in other genres and forms (like flash fiction and poetry). Mostly, I write stories about relatable people overcoming real-world obstacles to build love that lasts. Sometimes those stories have a paranormal twist.

I have four published romances (ebook & print!), and I'm working on creating more.

So why Patreon?

Let's be honest: publishing is both hard and expensive, and that's not even counting the hours spent doing the actual writing. Readers seem to love my books, but I'm not the kind of author who can pump out a book a month (those people are magic), and despite my efforts to learn, marketing is not one of my skills. (It also requires a significant investment of both time and money.) So I struggle with actually getting my books into readers' hands.

And for the last year and a half, I've been largely sidelined by a complicated health situation (even my doctors are still trying to figure it out!). The limited time my body lets me work has necessarily been dedicated to my "day" job—work that earns me money.

But I love telling stories, and I'd like to continue writing and publishing. In order to do that, to justify spending my limited energy on all the work required to publish (and then market) my books, I need help.

So I've turned to Patreon and the generosity of folks able to appreciate the value creative works bring to our world. Your support (at any level!) will help me dedicate time toward writing the stories, pay the professionals whose help I need to publish those stories (like cover designers), defray those marketing costs, and more.

Though I'd like to believe many of these stories will eventually be written & published regardless, your support will help them make it out into the world sooner.

Ultimately, I hope to be able to hire someone else to handle things like marketing for me, so that even more of my time can be dedicated to the writing itself, and the stories in my head can finally make it onto the page—and out into the world. 💕

Having 50 people with faith in my ability to craft compelling stories, and a willingness to support the creation of those stories, will help me keep writing even through all the physical and emotional struggles. Plus it'll show this Patreon experiment may just work out.
