It's story time!

If you're reading this, I assume you already know that I'm a writer. I write romances and mystery novels under different pen names, but I also love short fiction, especially speculative, which is what I'll be publishing here. Mostly. I'm unpredictable.
 
The books I write under my pen names have (just!) a large enough audience to earn out and even give me a small allowance after production costs. In the case of other stories though, there’s no way I can earn anything close to minimum wage for the time invested.

That’s where Patreon comes in. While I really, really enjoy writing romance and mystery, I want to keep pushing my craft in new ways. But it’s been hard to step away from my pen names in order to focus on my "Jocelyn writing". Hopefully Patreon will allow me to do that. So the short version is: you pay, I write. Think of it as subscribing to a very focused online magazine that only publishes me.

I'll post stories at the rate of approximately one per month. (Longer stories might be broken up into multiple posts, but the fee is monthly, so it's not a Kill Bill situation.)  

Who am I?
I’m Jocelyn Koehler. Made in Wisconsin, exported to Philadelphia, citizen of the ‘verse. I am a writer person. Pretty much everything I’ve done in my life is related to words and books. I’ve been a student, librarian, bookseller, archivist, editor, and a few other things. I'm now a writer. When I’m not doing things with words, I like to lay around, think about cats, and figure out new ways to incorporate cheese into my diet. One MAY go to teamblood.org to learn more. If you want. No pressure.

You are a bold, well-dressed, and witty member of literary society. Look at you! My goodness. Supporters at this level receive the warm feeling in one's heart when one is a true philanthropist. 
Battlecat
$2 or more per month 11 patrons
Greetings, my fine friends. Supporters at this level will see all my stories posted on Patreon, along with various updates and perhaps...videos? The mind boggles.

Oh, my. You wish to stalk the night as my personal army and also read my stuff? Fine by me. Supporters at this tier will get everything the Battlecats get, as well as some special behind-the-scenes posts that go in depth about the stories I post. I'll also ask you questions about what to write next!

At this level or higher, you’ll get everything the Panthers get. What else do you need? Quite frankly, you’d have to be an eccentric billionaire to have a spare $10 to throw at me every month. Here's the deal. IF and when I produce a Thing which is available in print, you'll get a free signed copy of each thing, and also perhaps swag or a gift that I dream up.
Goals
$27 of $354 per month
I'm an indie author, but I still need health insurance. Help pay my monthly premium of $354! If I hit this level, I'll record a monthly Q&A for all Patrons and take suggestions for new stories and settings.
