Official Subscription. Monthly Chapter Updates, And More!
$1 or more per update 8 patrons


  • No waiting 6 months for the story! You get a delicious chunk every month!
  • You'll get lovely full-size images of the gorgeous cover art!
  • Finally, early access to all supplemental art, playlists, and whatever other beautiful/fun/weird things I dream up. And also my undying love and gratitude. (Undead love and gratitude?)

    (BTW, These are from The Halloween Tarot. Wow? Cute? Maybe I should charge "by the Bat...")
STAKE SAUCE Exclusive Bonus Stories... and welcome to the DEATH MASQUERADE
$2 or more per update 0 patrons
  • STAKE SAUCE Exclusives -  At least once a month, I'll write a short story that's just too secret for public consumption. These short pieces will hint at upcoming arcs, introduce new characters, important knowledge, or plotlines early, or give secret backstories on our current faves. (These will be the usual teen-rated. If you're after more risque content... scroll down.)
  • DEATH MASQUERADE - Monthly chapter updates! No waiting 6 months for the finished book! If theatrical magic and operatic spell-slinging (and vampire ladykisses) is more your style than punk-rock Portland, I'd suggest starting here
Death Masquerade Exclusives... And Stake Sauce Intimate Encounters
$3 or more per update 9 patrons

Ascend to another level of short stories... and some bewitchingly passionate content. (That means this is the NSFW stuff!)

Ask, And It Shall Be Revealed
$4 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Ask a not completely spoilery question, get an honest answer. 
  • Got a burning question about character backgrounds, world details, or shippy thoughts? I’ll post the answers. Believe me, I have probably put a little too much thought into this stuff, and I’d love to share. 
  • (I reserve the right to keep vital secrets, but nah, I’m not going to be difficult about this one! I love you guys.)
Every Finished Arc as eBooks!
$5 or more per update 6 patrons
  • You just bought the book. No buying the finished story from Amazon!
  •  It takes 6 months for an Arc - say, "Stake Sauce," a 6-part story - to finish, but once it does, you get the whole thing in your choice of an ePub, Mobi, or PDF - and if you need it in another format, talk to me. Whatever your heart/e-reader/device desires.
Clairvoyance for Beginners (See Upcoming Short Story Peeks!)
$6 or more per update 0 patrons
  • You get a secret look at my schedule for upcoming monthly short stories!
  • Includes the title and mini-summary/subtitle
Clairvoyance for Experts (See Next Month's Act Summary!)
$7 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Read the actual outline of next month’s Act! Know  what's coming before anyone else. Might even contain spoilers...
  • (Excluding Act 6/the final part of any given Arc, and the Truly Secret Shocking Spoilers. Little ones, you can have though. Sorry, I gotta keep some secrets.)
Audience participation!
$8 or more per update 0 patrons

  • A chance for a monthly writing request!
  • Once a month, send me a prompt for a short scene or what-if. It can be an AU, a conversation you want to see some characters have, pretty much anything - around 500 words. I’ll put the drabble suggestions in a list, and pick a lucky winner. It might be yours. 
  • (These won't be charged posts; they'll be like writing warm-ups for me, or promos I'll post on public blogs!)
A Very Special Thanks To You!
$10 or more per update 1 patron

  • Your name will be included in the Special Thanks section at the end of each chapter!
  • And… Name A Thing in the story! A street sign, a walk-on character, an event (The Jennifer Incident?). Either you pick a name, or I name it after you, after ensuring this is okay and deciding on what!
We Take Requests, Level 1!
$15 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Send a headcanon/prompt/scene/ship, and I will write it, no voting! (This is like 'audience participation,' but instead of me picking just one or 'a chance,' I'll actually do all of these!) 
  • Within reason; NSFW is okay! But nothing abusive/fetishizing/bigoted/otherwise damaging; I reserve the right to refuse or ask you to pick something else. Around 500 words. Or probably more. I can’t shut up when I’m having fun.
Design a minor character!
$20 or more per update 0 patrons

  • Send me a character of your own creation, and they'll be in the story in some way, with at least one speaking line!
  • Feel like making a cameo? Have an original character of your own who might have fun in Only Slightly Weirder Portland? How about sticking your friend in here as a birthday present? Or maybe subtly putting your fave character in this universe in some kind of stealth crossover, that I can’t legally acknowledge by name, but we’d know what’s up? (Not like I’d request anything this geekily specific from my favorite writer. No. Definitely not.)
We Take Requests, Level 2!
$25 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Send a headcanon/prompt/scene/ship, and I’ll write it. (This is like 'audience participation,' but instead of me picking just one or 'a chance,' I'll actually do all of these!)
  • Within reason; NSFW is okay! But nothing abusive/fetishizing/bigoted/otherwise damaging; I reserve the right to refuse or ask you to pick something else. Around 1000 words. Or more. Again, when I get going…
Clairvoyance for Masters (Detailed Q&A!)
$30 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Ask me anything but the most absolutely unspeakable spoilers, and I'll answer to the best of my ability. 
  • The only caveat here is you can't say a word. If any secrets get out, we'll both know why…
Please Allow Me To Introduce: A Person Of Wealth And Taste
$50 or more per update 0 patrons
  • Uh. Wow. We should… talk. You could ask me basically anything, including Shocking Spoilers.
  • My attention, you got it. (And also my eternal gratitude and incredulous, shocked Is This Really Happening face. Here it is. It's pretty funny.)
