If you're coming across this campaign, it's because of one of a few things:
1.  You're an avid reader, preferably of romance, but other genres entice you, too. It's even more thrilling for you when other genres blend with romance, and you get a great mix of character-driven plot, and plot-driven story.

2.  You're an aspiring or new author in need of guidance from a long established veteran author and editor.  
3.  You're supporting an artist you believe in, and you believe in me.  

Do you love a great story that captures your heart, thrills you, and keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat? These tales will twist up your heart, make you cry, laugh, shout at characters, and ultimately leave you with a satisfying ending--which is why you read.  My Opeth Pack Saga has been going strong since finally finding a home last year!  

Do you have a fantastic story but need a keen editor's eye to help you tighten your chops?  

I have been able to connect with readers of my romantic fiction, since my career's inception, about eighteen years ago. It's been an amazing ride--especially talking with readers who've been fans since day 1. Now, I want to take my writing and connection with fans to a deeper level, as well as reach more new readers.

Through the amazing platform of Patreon, I can share insight and bring fans a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.  I can also mentor your writing career in small, but powerful chunks at a time.  Your support allows me to spend more time on the few things important to me: Writing novels and connecting with the fans who enjoy powerful stories about humans struggling against all odds to ultimately find happiness.  I can also continue to pay it forward in an industry that has been very kind to me.  

In the form of novels, I can share whole worlds with readers. It is also easier for me to continue mentoring new voices in fiction, when finances are steady.

This won't be a forever thing, unless the support becomes overwhelming.  Even my ego isn't that huge.  Or is it...

What YOU get for what you throw down?  
The rewards vary but the first one being the most altruistic:  You get the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone to get over their fears and try something new.  

I have yet to choose which covers will be made into plates, but it's not like I lack variety.  Authors get help, readers get more stories.  Sneak peaks of the WIPs I murder, Patreon only snippets of stories, Patreon only Skype/Youtube, Q/A...and in the end, we can just chop it up on Skype.  Also, I'm looking forward to the Tim Ferriss gimmick listed in the goals section.  

The level of support is up to you, but all amounts are truly appreciated.  I'll be updating the blog here a few times a month and definitely sending out shout-outs and thank-you notes. And bringing you, my readers, along by my side throughout the writing process.  Hell, you might be helping replace the chair my youngest girlfriend hates, or the chair she hogs when she sprains her ankle.  Or you might be helping cover my heart pills (I have Atrial Fibrillation) or updated glasses because I can't see.  No, really.  I'm legally blind.

To my readers, I'm glad for your support.  I can try something new.  To my authors, it's my turn to help you get over your fears.

  • For Non writers: we're going to keep it mysterious for the time being, because your support is something I'm eternally grateful for, so the reward has to be truly unique!
Goals
$106 of $250 per month
$250.00 is quite a goal to start with, but it's only fair that I post audio of me reading chapters from my work.  If this goal is met, I'll read a a few chapters from the current work in progress.  This will be open to Patreon supporters.
