Hi there! Thanks for visiting my Patreon page. I’m Lorena Angell, author of The Unaltered, a 5-book young adult fantasy/sci-fi series set in modern day--a J. K. Rowling meets Steven King kind of read.

The Unaltered series has achieved some pretty awesome stats since 2011 when book one, A Diamond in My Pocket, was released. With five books in the series, and nearly 300,000 downloads worldwide, many of the books have reached number one on Amazon charts in multiple countries. Apple’s iTunes iBookstore named A Diamond in My Pocket a Breakout Book in 2013, and in 2015 the series was picked up by Hollywood producers who are currently optioning the series for film and television.

This is so cool, I have to stop and pinch myself sometimes. Being able to catch the attention of Hollywood without a big name publisher backing my series is pretty incredible. You see, I’m an Indie author. What is an Indie Author? Someone who self-publishes their work through online outlets like Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Smashwords, CreateSpace, etc. Indie authors, like me, don’t make money till readers buy the book, whereas traditionally published authors get an advance of money upfront to fund their work. Indie authors fund their own writing journey and it can run in the tens of thousands of dollars. I have a side job to supplement my writing income, but this cuts into my available time to write more books, which is what I’d really love to be doing.

Enter Patreon. (And again, thank you for visiting. The fact you’re still reading this is simply awesome!) Patreon gives you the ability to join my exclusive community and get access to book news, movie news, behind the scenes of writing, and access to the video blog and more. Maybe what you really want is a coveted crystal Sanguine Diamond replica. Well, that’s possible too. By subscribing to one of the tiers to the right, you'll be rewarded exceptionally. Plus, you'll have my unending gratitude because you'll be giving me the ability to pay for my editor, write more books, and hold book signings, etc. So, dive in and let's make some magic happen.

You'll also gain access to my monthly Unaltered video blog where I give updates on the movie in development. I'll also talk about random stuff that's hopefully interesting, for example: what it's like to be an Indie author, where some of my ideas come from, and/or video of the beautiful area where I live. (Spoiler: there may be pics of my cats.) Perhaps one day I'll be able to post a video from the set of the movie.
