Laura Anne Gilmanis creating Fiction and Non-Fiction (and some Nonsense)
Access to shorter works (drabbles, flash and microfiction, filks, etc) produced each month.
plus the monthly Rant, a NSFW examination of (non-political) topics that made me go "ok no wait back up and WTF?" that month.
plus on-going tutorials on the basics of wine, whisky, and other booze nerdery (suitable for both the drinker and the sober-but-curious).
Everything from the Tip Jar,
Plus! at least one longer work every month (short story, novella, or part of a serial novel)
Plus! Deleted excerpts and outtakes that may never be seen elsewhere (warning: there may be spoilers!)
Plus! "What the Fuck is Writing?" essays on, well, writing.
Plus! "Meerkat Meets World" - personal observations on travel near and far.
Everything from The Storyteller’s Bowl,
Plus! Access to The Mom Files, an ongoing process of transcribing and editing my mother’s short fiction (published and not), with a look at some of her notes, essays, and letters. This will hopefully end up as a mother-daughter collection at some point.
This will be part editing-in-action, part storytelling, part Your Mom Did What?

About Laura Anne Gilman
The Home for Wayward WritingsThese days, I'm best known (by a small but loyal readership) as a novelist. But I originally started as a short fiction writer - mostly in horror, but also SF, fantasy, and even romance and (gasp) mainstream fiction - and before that, I made a decent sideline in non-fiction.
But NY publishing can only handle so much, and there's great deal of story-material lurking in the storeroom I laughably call a brain, waiting for a chance to escape. So this is your chance to encourage me to create more for your reading pleasure, and see what happens in the dark corners of my mind when I haven’t had quite enough sleep...
You'll also be sponsoring my beloved but medically-expensive cats (aka "the ones more internet-famous than I am"), since Patreon earnings go toward helping pay for the ever-increasing medical costs for my beloved but diabetic CatofSize (and his asthmatic younger brother the Kitten of Thursday). Because apparently I'm a sucker for the animals with ongoing medical needs....
