Title Acquired: So-Rin's Friend
$2 per month
Reward
"You want to be friends? We're going to have so much fun together!"


And you know So-Rin needs all the friends he can get! 

As So-Rin's new friend, you can read all about his adventures in the latest chapter of Skylight Stories Kawena as they're drafted, way before anyone else! You'll also get your name listed in the Acknowledgements section at the end of each chapter!

As one of So-Rin's friends, you also are granted access to:
• Progress/Group Update Announcements
• Sketch and WIP Art

• Patreon-Exclusive Interactive Fun!

• Early access to short stories  

And more! 

Title Acquired: Fallon's Friend
$5 per month
Reward
"You want to be my friend too? I'll do my best for you!"


If you weren't already So-Rin's friend too, he might be a little jealous that you possess the coveted Title of "Fallon's Friend."

In addition to everything you get for being So-Rin's friend, those of you who are also friends with Fallon will also have access to:

♦ Early Access to Character Profiles

♦ Patreon-Exclusive Journal Entries

You may just discover something all new about your favorite characters, see alternate endings and deleted scenes, and just get to know more about the Kawena world between chapter releases!

Bloodline Acquired: Nassima's Kin
$10 per month
Reward
In addition to everything available at prior levels, humans who become Nassima's Kin have a 1/100,000,000,000 chance of sprouting wings and gaining the ability to fly just like So-Rin and Fallon!

As a new member of Nassima's bloodline, you can dive even deeper into the world of Kawena, whispering your questions to the wind in hopes of having your deepest wishes come true!

♥ Patrons at this level may ask a question or make a story request in the Monthly Update (such as: "I want to see a day in Fallon's life" or "What was So-Rin's first hunt like?").

Each month I'll pick a question and answer it in the form of a short story, journal entry, etc. 
Bloodline Acquired: Cressa's Kin
$15 per month
Reward
In addition to everything available at prior levels, humans who become Cressa's Kin will have their swimming ability increased by a whopping .097%!

As a friend of So-Rin, Fallon, and by being one of Nassima's Kin, those who are also Cressa's Kin have the unique ability to reach out into the vast ocean of writing beyond Kawena and read other stories in the Luminous World I'm currently working on!

☼ Get permanent access to special short stories and side stories, creation stories, and other stand-alone and tie-in stories you will see nowhere else as this Luminous World is revealed! You may even just catch a glimpse at a future series...

☼ These Patreon-only additional stories will release 4 times yearly (in February, May, August, and November).
Kawena Publication Supporter
$40 per month
Reward
Like any storyteller, it's a goal of mine to get my stories into as many hearts, minds, and hands as possible. 


In addition to getting all previous rewards, by being a supporter at this level you're showing me that you believe what I'm doing is worth such an endeavor as publication, and for that I couldn't possibly be more thankful!  


To show my appreciation, any Patron who has donated a cumulative $40 by the time volume 1 goes to print will be able to find their name listed in a special Thank You section of the print and e-book versions of Skylight Stories Kawena Volume 1!


And, for those who would like to show additional support by becoming a Publication Supporter for a month, once Volume 1 is published, you will receive an e-book copy, in addition to a full package via mail including a signed physical book copy and the same exclusive convention bonus goodies you can only otherwise get with purchase of a copy from me in-person at a convention! 


Thanks so much for your ongoing support! I couldn't do it without you -


 *Volume 1 currently scheduled for release in December 2018. Watch announcements for further updates and details.

Light of the Luminous World
$50 per month
I... I'm speechless.

To receive such support is truly humbling, and I'm not sure what else I can offer on top of everything else!


By selecting this tier, you will get...



♦ All the benefits of previous tiers.


♦ Writing and Editing commission priority



What else would you like? Another custom-written story or short? Help and advice with your own writing? Request art from me or KotaVa? Have fanfiction you would like read? We could start a book club/ monthly chat where you can bring your questions directly to me and get answers to them live... Just some ideas, I'm open to pretty much anything!

The only thing I can say right now is...
Thanks so much for your support!

Your Female OC Guarding Nuva Isla!
$125 per month
Reward
Now for something special: 


By selecting this tier, you will get all previous rewards, including the ability to have one of your OCs (in Avin form) appear as a character living on Nuva Isla guarding it from attack. 


Currently there is 1 open slot for a Female Warrior/Guard-class Avin. You can select the type of bird your character is modeled after (should it be necessary to transform a preexisting non-avian character. I can offer suggestions as well :) ), as well as choose between either a bow and arrow, a spear/javelin, throwing darts/knives, or a hammer/club-style weapon.


Your character will encounter Fallon and So-Rin upon their arrival on Nuva Isla, and will be depicted in an illustration in volume 3. In addition, you will get a special thank-you dedication in the volume, with credit for lending the character!


I'm super excited to be getting to the point of more characters being included in the story, and am even more excited to include supporters in even more ways! Thanks so much to all for your continuing dedication and love of the series!
