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 years old and used to steal scrap paper from my dad’s printer to write and draw short stories. I have been perfecting my story 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 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 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 and have done since 2012 with this year having already released something and under intense editing for releasing the first of my Beyond the Veil stories for December! Overall, I 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 four 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.
My projects include the sequel to Traitor to the King, Traitor to the Blood which is just completed the planning stage and on to writing. There is my next book due to be published, Changeling Heart from the Beyond the Veil universe, a one-off but lots of fun with Rab the unlikely half-fae main character trying to make a new life in the human world but always being hindered by the debt he owes the vampire Count Taliesin Vilmore the Second… Taliesin is my most deliciously wicked little monster to date, though his half-brother Theo’s creeping into top rankings….
Beloved by her People, volume one of the Luden K’ronika, an epic series which this first completed volume is so big, I’ve got to cut it in half and it is going through intense editing as I also work on the next volume, who also looks to be cut in half for being too long as well! This project is my Magnum Opus, the first piece six years in the making and dedicated to a canine friend I rescued and who inspired me during a rather peculiar time.
There is also Between Brothers, the first of a three-part historical romance between two Teutonic knights, Dietrich and Meinhardt… possibly one of my favourite projects at the moment you’ll be getting to read some draft chapters, but the juicy bits will cost a little extra…. Then there is Dragon’s Bride, anyone watching my Hetalia-Dragon series on Deviantart will know the basics of this and its one of my favourite concepts with Arianna being a favourite character to work with. I’ll also be writing an exclusive Patreon story from this universe titled the Dragon’s Art, which I’m already quite enjoying.
Other projects include my Day Clan novellas with an exclusive story for Patreon, an exclusive historical romance I’m writing for Patreon, and several other projects from the Beyond the Veil universe that are part of their own unique series such as Blood Guardian (about demons), Hell Bound (about Hell’s Enforcers), Cruel Temptations (about angels and their ilk) Guard Dog ( a werewolf series), Fragrance of Paradise (a Patreon exclusive with a Peri) and Foundations in Blood (a vampire series that has a life of its own and is going to eb overtaking everything if it gets the chance).
Seriously I could go on for days about this stuff, but you wanna know why to sponsor me?

What You Gain
The initial first 3 chapters of most novels will be free for anyone to read including the exclusive Patreon stories (although chapters with sex scenes will require subscription), you’ll get information on the universe, character profiles, unused or deleted sections of novels that will be exclusive to subscribers with subscribers getting to read the majority of first drafts. You’ll also be helping me pay for cover art from other free-lance artists and just helping me complete my wish to write forever.
But aside from all that, Patrons get the chance to have their names given to characters, influence projects with their support and encourage me to work harder and get more achieved. Not only that but you can help decide on future projects and aid me in creating varied characters. They can even give me suggestions, pictures or themes to write short stories around just for them and all Patrons will receive digital copies of completed Patreon Exclusive stories, which will expand as time goes on.
I intend to produce a chapter of one exclusive story a month, one draft chapter from the ‘project list’ a month, a monthly little discussion on some of the ways I try to create from developing unique universes to finding research materials and writing romance, as well as many short stories, short pieces, character information and blurbs as I can get done and a weekly briefing on story development and progress thanks to the help of my Patrons. I also intend to do a regular Q&A session for Patrons every two months or so where you can ask about the inner workings of my deranged little noggin’.

Thank you!
