About Francesca Astraea

Francesca here! I write stories and blog posts, and design stationery (you might also know me from the Do Something Directory). Enjoy the stories and blogs? Join the No. 1 Readers' Club for exclusive stories and lots of chatting! Added bonus: you're helping me to build a sustainable career while you're here.
Where your money goes:
  • 80% The Bank of Francesca, a fundraising pool for my life (I recently went back to full time study, so you really are helping me out)
  • 20% Patreon and pay out processing fees plus costs associated with creating rewards
  • Note: new patrons are charged upfront and then on the 1st of the month going forward (so if you pledge on 25th, you're charged, and then charged on the 1st of the next month too. It's to stop what we in the industry call 'smash, grab and bail')
Find more detailed breakdown, plus FAQs about Patreon, on my website.

All patrons who pledge for at least one month get:
  • Your name in the thank yous of all books
  • Exclusive short stories, plus early access to public stories
  • A character named after you 
  • Exclusive pre-order links and/or info for books and general behind the scenes updates
  • Other perks including discounts in my stationery shops and early info about other projects
Want to join the No. 1 Readers Club outside of Patreon? Read my blog or join my monthly-ish newsletter. Don't want to commit to becoming a regular patron? Support my work on a one-off basis using PayPal or Kofi!

At 10 members of the No. 1 Readers' Club, I will do a dramatic reading of one of my old fan fictions, on video. Live, probably.

(You're welcome.)
