Lesley Donaldson is creating Your Escape

Welcome patrons and curious explorers! I'm thrilled to be your guide as we escape the humdrum of daily life and journey into the worlds of my imagination.

I'm dedicated to the creation of high-quality stories. Whether short or long, written or graphic, my stories are impactful with characters you'll love, or love to hate.

My first grimdark fantasy, The Queen's Viper, was a semi-finalist in the 2016 Kindle Book Awards, and received multiple 5 star reviews. The release of book 2, The Wrath of Atticus, is just around the corner.

To perfect your trip into the magic of the past, or the shadows of the unknown, I rely on editors, proofreaders, marketing tools, and more. All of this costs money. Ugh! I know.

You deserve well-crafted stories that carry you away from the stress of every day life. Help me bring them to you.

Thanks for your generous support! Now I can write and feed my family.

"Without stories we would go mad. Life would lose it’s moorings or orientation. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart larger.” ― Ben Okri

When I reach $500 a month, I'll release the second pin in a series of enamel pins inspired by The Queen's Viper and The Wrath of Atticus for purchase. The pin's design is currently in progress. If you're a monthly supporter of $30 or more, you get the pin for free.

The first pin is a stretch goal of my Kickstarter for The Wrath of Atticus, which begins on April 11, 2018. If that stretch goal is not reached, then pin #1 will be released here instead, once the goal is achieved.

I'll also produce a video for all supporters that is my author commentary on The Wrath of Atticus.
