I planned to launch this Patreon for real at the beginning at 2017. I didn't know how difficult the first half of 2017 would be. I moved all the way across the country, lost some folks, gained others and I came out the other side stronger BUT it did mean I'm just getting around to launching this Patreon now - NOVEMBER 2017. In many ways I'm glad because I was all over the place when I initially planned this and I didn't know what I wanted to provide really but now I do!

I'm going to be providing chapters of ongoing novels I'm working on. These will be separate from novels I have under contract.

The first novellas you will be getting draft chapters of are three set in an all new high fantasy world I've been working on called Batomi. I'll be posting some public world-building posts and other notes about the story and the world both here and at my website before the first chapter goes up on November 1st. I've described it as young queer brown woman joins an organized crime organization that is also political resistance. The working titles are:

The Trial of The Kouzinns - Constance loses something precious in her efforts to join The Kouzinns and must take an huge risk to regain it and also prove herself to the organization while keeping her freedom.
THE FIRST DRAFT CHAPTER OF THIS NOVELLA WILL LAUNCH NOVEMBER 1ST!

The Stinging Queen - Summary would be spoilers

The Bridge of Beasts - Summary would be spoilers

All three will have a separate stories but will also fit together in an overarching plot about political revolution, colonization, cultural change, cultural exploitation and family - both born and found.


This Patreon account is a step toward making a living off what I love to do. And even if no one pledges I'm still gonna continue creating content just at a much slower pace :) . Everyone knows you can't shut me up for long.
