Carrie Cuinn is creating New Fiction (Novels and Stories)!

patrons

$61
per month
As of Dec 2017 there are new goals and patron rewards! Read more here.

Pledging your support each month helps me to carve out the time to write my novels and stories. I'd love to say I'll use these funds to buy a cup of coffee so that I can sit in a cafe and write without them kicking me out. I'd like to spend it on a sitter who's trained to care for my son and his special needs, so I can leave the house to write once in a while -- which I haven't been able to do consistently for a few years. The truth is, those are my goals.

Now though, this Patreon helps me to pay bills, and feed my son. With a little less stress over whether our power will be shut off or if we've had dinner that day, I can find a little more energy to focus on this work. With your support, I'm better able write something new.

And in exchange, you'll get new stories I've written just for you!

For every $50 per month this Patreon raises, I will share at least 500 words of fiction not seen anywhere else. At the $50 level, this means a 500-word micro fiction, a complete story told in a handful of words. (When we reach $100, I'll share a 1000 word flash story, for $150, I'll share a new 1500 word story, and so on.) After we reach $300, I'll be able to start recording myself reading these stories, and only you will have access to those audio files.

In addition, you'll get exclusive access to posts on my writing process, thoughts about my current projects, and other writing-related notes that you won't find anywhere else. PLUS larger support tiers get one-of-a-kind hand crafted cards and zines featuring my fiction, thoughts, art, and more... multiple times a year. You definitely won't find that anywhere else.

You you're new to my writing, you can check out what else I've published at: https://carriecuinn.com/fiction/

(New to Patreon? Please note that you can pledge as little as $1, or as much as you like. You can choose specific rewards, or give whatever amount you're comfortable with. You will be charged on the 1st of each month. Everyone's pledges are added together to reach the monthly goals. So, a little help really can go a long way!)

THANK YOU! I couldn't do this without you.
Rewards
Tentacles
$1 or more per month 8 patrons
Thank you! Everyone who pledges at any level will get monthly updates not available anywhere else, which might include secret news (personal or professional), excerpts from my current writing projects, random drawings, and the occasional recipe. Plus, my appreciation.


The supporters at this level are called Tentacles because no matter how small they are, if you have enough of them, you can drag a whaling ship to the bottom of the sea.

Glittering Eyes
$3 or more per month 2 patrons
Thank you very much! Patrons at this level will get access to all of my regular monthly content, plus you'll get a digital copy of my bi-annual zine delivered to you every Spring and Fall.


Supporters at this level are called Glittering Eyes because you only need a few to get the job done, but having a lot of them certainly makes an impact.

Whispering Tongues
$5 or more per month 4 patrons
Extra special thank you! Pledge at this level to get access to all of my regular monthly content and the digital edition of my bi-annual zine, plus: Every Winter and Summer, I'll mail out a physical postcard with a haiku or microfiction, just for you.


Supporters at this level are called Whispering Tongues because even if they aren't connected, with enough of them, the world is a very different place. Or at least, a dark room certainly is.

Gaping Maws
$10 or more per month 1 patron
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Supporters at this level will get access to all of my regular monthly content, plus you'll get a PHYSICAL copy of my bi-annual zine mailed out to you every Spring and Fall. This limited edition, hand-crafted, publication will include original writing and art, and will be signed and numbered. (You'll also have access to the digital copy of the zine, and will get the Winter and Summer postcards.)


These patrons are called Gaping Maws because you really only need one to change your life... but the more you have, the more sure you can be that your immediate future is going to be very different than the one you imagined.


See? YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

Dread Cultists
$20 or more per month 1 patron
I can't possibly thank you enough.


Patrons at $20 and above will be invited to join me in a regular monthly online chat (times and dates to be determined) where we can talk about how I work, what I write  or what you want to see from me, or where I get my ideas. Or, very possibly, my thoughts on the robot/dinosaur uprising our secret overlords have scheduled for 2019. 


And! Supporters at this level will also get access to all of my regular monthly content, plus you'll get a PHYSICAL copy of my bi-annual zine mailed out to you every Spring and Fall. This limited edition, hand-crafted, publication will include original writing and art, and will be signed and numbered. You'll also have the digital copy of the zine, and will get the Winter and Summer postcards.


Basically: you get everything.


Patrons at this level are called Dread Cultists because with just a couple of you, we could reshape my world entirely. All it takes is a few true believers and a willingness to summon... whatever might happen next.

Goals
$61 of $100 per month
When we reach this level, I will write a new flash fiction story (up to 1000 words) and share it with you, each month. This story won't appear anywhere else! It's all yours. For examples of my work, check out this sorted list of fiction here.
