Who am I?
Hello! I'm Emery Allen, a 25 year old writer and artist from Cleveland, Ohio. I self-published my first book when I was 20 and have released three more since then. (You can find my books here) I have been trying to find my balance with how much to pour into my passions and how much of myself and my time I should invest in work that will allow me to be more stable. Someday, of course, I would like my passions and stability to go hand in hand, but until then I am going to continue to try and find my balance.
Over the past few years I have sold thousands of books. While I love the writing I have put out so far, I want to try something new. My next book has been in the works for a year now and I am letting it unfold as I feel it should. It is important to me that this work is more me than anything else I've written so far, and it is important that it comes out of me in the most honest way. This is something I am not in a rush to finish but something I want to be able to invest more of myself in.  
I am living a semi-struggling, semi-comfortable artist life. I have my florist job that I love along with the odd jobs I can find here and there, and I have the income from my writing and my art. I get by but can't afford to do more for myself than be where I'm currently at. I have been living in a warehouse for the past 3 years. For the first year or so it felt like a good thing for me but now I feel myself growing out of it and needing something much more stable and safe: A place with heat. Hot water. A working stove. Windows without fresh bullet holes in them. I find myself stressed over this. Trying to search (unsuccessfully so far) for a more consistent job to add to the mix, which would be giving myself very little time to reflect and write and do what I really would love to do. So that is what brings me here.

What is my goal?
My goal with Patreon is to be able to give myself the time and attention to write this next book while simultaneously being able to afford to live in a better home. By supporting this Patreon, you will be helping me do just that, and I will have something (many somethings!) to give back to you. I will be running an advice column and answering questions that you send me along with using this as a blog for my own thoughts, soul discoveries, and poetry/prose. I have been running a blog for 7 years and it became a bit of an advice blog. As a result of that I published a book of advice called A Small Beam of Light. I would like to continue to do that but on a different platform.

What will you get by supporting me?
All supporters will have access to the advice I give and the general daily life blog posts which will include my ramblings, photos, playlists, and whatever else I feel like including at the time. There will be other rewards for every pledge $5 and beyond. I would love to mail things to you! Physical, tangible, lovely things. Pressed flowers. Prints. Drawings. Handwritten poems. Journals, empty or not. I may try out short stories or dive into that novel I've had in my head for years. You'll get those too! All of my creativity will be poured into this for you in exchange for your support. You will get a lot of writing and a lot of art, the majority of which will not be available anywhere else. You will get to see writing before the final edits, postcards sent to you in the mail, photography, art, handwritten letters, embroidered goods, and a LOT of poetry. You will also get PDF files of my already published books, signed copies of books, personal letters, mini books which will be collections of love poems, healing poems, and so on. You will also get my next book before it is released publicly! If you, for some reason, decide to pledge $100 or more I will do one on one chats and I'm open to other ideas of rewards that you could have! 

Being published someday is my big dream and I would love to be able to put more of my time into working towards this dream. I don't want to feel split in a dozen different ways to pay for rent and eat food. I'm taking a shot in the dark here with this, hoping something may come of it. I want to fully pour myself into what I love. What I have been doing the past few years with my books has worked for the most part but I feel like I'm barely getting by now. I want to try something new for a little while. So that is what brought me here. I would love to not worry about money as much, be living in a better place, and still be able to do what I love. I guess that's really the dream for us all, isn't it? So I am asking that people invest in my writing career if you believe in it, in me. 

Thank you!
