Hi there!

I’m R.M. Archer, and I’m an author of young adult speculative fiction.

Speculative fiction, for those who don’t know, encompasses anything that could not happen in the real world. Sci-fi and fantasy are two of the largest sub-genres of speculative fiction, and the two that most of my work fall into.

I have two primary goals in writing young adult. First, I want to fill a gap that I’ve personally found frustrating in the genre: there’s a lack of young adult books that showcase good morals, and healthy relationships in particular. This is not to say that I don't include bad morals in my writing, but I do seek to address them by showing them as they are—negative and unhealthy—and contesting them within the story.

In a similar vein, I want to encourage young people like myself by showing relatable struggles being overcome. Deep-seated issues are difficult to leave behind and grow from, and I want to show that in my writing, but I also aim to show that they’re not impossible to conquer and you don’t have to be stuck in whatever unhealthy habits you may have.

It’s a passion of mine to provide edifying but non-preachy young adult fiction, and I’ve been developing my writing skills for the past ten years. However, getting these books finalized and published isn't easy or cheap. Most of my work is intended to be self-published, but that means that any professional editing, cover design, social media ads, etc. has to be paid for out-of-pocket. That’s where you come in. With your help and support, I’ll have a lot more flexibility to get my books edited and published faster.

At this very moment, I have the third draft of one of my books sitting on my computer waiting to be sent to a professional editor to be looked at, but I don’t currently have the funds for it. With your support, even if it’s just five dollars a month, I’ll be able to save for that book’s editing and cover design faster and I’ll be able to share it with you and others who will enjoy it and appreciate it sooner.

I firmly believe in my mission, but I need your help to make it happen. Are you in?
