About Laura Diaz de Arce

Who Is This Person?

Hi! I'm Laura Diaz de Arce, a South Florida based writer, nerd and fantastic weirdo. I make genre-crossing fiction, including Science Fiction, Fantasy, Magical Realism, Horror, Literary, Bizarro, Fairy Tales and more! On top of that, I do some non-fiction work and am a contributor for Book Riot. I'm also one of the founding members of Smoking Mirror Press. I'm the author of the short story collection MONSTROSITY, published with the help of you patrons!

I've been writing in a semi-professional capacity for about the past five years and these past two years I've made an effort to put my work out for publication. I love writing and want to continue to craft stories. 

Why Patreon?

While I use a lot of social media, it's difficult to target your work to a specific audience. My hope is to cultivate a community that is invested in my work. I want to reach the people who like what I do and keep providing them with my stories. 

Above that, I still have bills to pay and in order to keep writing more creatively instead of purely freelancing or taking a second job, any additional source of revenue will help. 

For as little as $1 a month you get the chance to view a lot of my behind-the-scenes work, previews of upcoming publications and chapters, and patron-exclusive posts. Higher tier perks include: collaborative influence in the form of voting, monthly Q & A's and even free e-books. As our community grows, the perks may also grow and evolve. 

What I'm Working On Updated as of January 2019

I also have a science fiction novel in the works tentatively titled Record for the Dead plus a fairy tale collection I hope to have ready by Christmas 2019 or 2020. There are other projects I have had to drop for time, including a fantasy noir, but may be able to pick up again with your generous patronage. 

Thank you so much for visiting my patreon and for your support!
