About

About Myself

My name is Clare Susanna Mary Keating, a self-published author, comic doodler, fan-fiction writer and overall creative annoyance known on the internet as echosdusk (most commonly) or under various compositions of my full name from Clare Keating to C.S.M Keating to Clare SM Keating… not creative I grant you, but pseudonyms are for dirtier things….
My dream’s been to write stories since I was seven and used to steal scrap paper from my dad’s printer to write and draw short stories. I have been perfecting my creating skills from trying to think of new games to entertain younger siblings to just coming up with complex stories about each individual toy I had… seriously I named them all and they had complete backgrounds. I have worked in various careers dealing with people and animals but I have never stopped writing and now, I have finally given in to the fact that no job will ever satisfy me as much as writing something to make a person laugh, sigh, coo, shudder or pick the book up and hit me back into my evil lair.
Currently my published works include Between Brothers, Traitor to the King, Last of the Sabre-Fangs, The Swallowed Moon, Moon Guardian, the Wolf and the Tiger, the Breathtaker, Lord of the Lakes, the Changeling Heart and Falling at his Feet… all of them published through Amazon. I can and have written for various genre but my favourites include fantasy and romance… romance being any kind of romance I can think of, which is probably why you’re here….

Why Patreon
Well, I lost an arm-wrestling match with my baby sister; she believed I should go with my dream of being a writer and Patreon seemed the best way… or she really wanted me to tell someone else about my romance ideas and stop predicting her ‘DnD’ games… mwuhahaha! After avoiding the decision things happened to change my mind and as I have Deviantart as my main platform for dragon comics and my animal stories, I felt my more ‘human’ based work should be getting some proper, individual attention. I’m here to give my work a place to show off in exchange for a tithe that I can use to appease the Chupacabra pretending to be my cat Cleobob and keep her content and happy… and maybe afford myself something, maybe a little decorative lighting for the cave… and Patrons alone can help me do this….

My Projects
So yearly I produce about one novella or novel for Amazon a year and have done since 2012, I try to keep restricted to twenty-one projects that I’m always working on, but some have their own special places to go and so for Patreon I have chosen half of my projects to share with you plus exclusive stories from the various universes just for you! I also will provide short stories and one-shot pieces with characters as well as general advice on ways to develop stories and just have fun coming up with random ideas.
Here on Patreon you'll see that my current stories that I'm focusing on uploading include Sons of the Order - a historical romance piece about two Teutonic Knights, the sequel to Between Brothers where Dietrich and Meinhardt are heading into the Baltic Crusades and the terror there! 
Foundations of Blood - the first of my Viper Clan series, a vampire series that mixes family drama and horror in my Beyond the Veil universe with romance as the presiding theme in each book. In this first story you will learn of how the two heads of the family, Theodulus and Adelia, came together and their struggles in order to be with one another and it paves the way for some of my favourite works at the moment!
We also have exclusive stories and a exclusive collection of random stories for you to enjoy... 
Fragrance of Paradise - a good introduction to the Beyond the Veil universe with everyday Jim Essel suddenly finding himself in ownership of a mysterious box that contains a very tiny little woman and all the terrifying consequences of being brought into a world of demons and angels! 
Easy Prey - Shape-shifters Dane and Trent were just typical teenagers when they realised they wanted each other, but their devotion to keeping it secret threw Dane into a miserable situation when his mother discovered he'd been 'seeing' someone. Years go by and Trent's life is now utter misery as a co-worker is blackmailing him and he's just unhappy, but fate will lead him to cover a story in an Alaskan town where he is reunited with Dane, but their happiness could still be at risk as long s they keep their love secret. 
Then there's various other projects you will get updates on from time to time including Traitor to the Blood, Beloved by her People, Wolf's Song and many more.
Plus each Christmas is a completed story just for you to read that you get to read the draft of thirteen months before its published!

What You Gain
The initial first 3 chapters of most novels will be free for anyone to read that comes visiting - but as you can see from the pledge tiers, just from pledging $1 a month you get all of these things... 
1. Access to all chapters of Patreon Exclusive Stories
2. Access to up to 5th Chapter of early project drafts
3. Access to all Advice on Writing
4. Access to all character profiles and background information
5. Full PDF file of completed exclusive stories
6. Special Full PDF file of a whole exclusive story each Christmas
And much more as the tiers increase... though for copyright reasons and publishing rules, I cannot upload the final chapter of any of my main projects and all uploaded chapters will be drafts, which include spelling mistakes and grammar errors but don't worry too much about that! 

Thank you!
