WELCOME, AND THANK YOU.




Hi. I'm RoAnna Sylver. It's truly lovely to see you here. <3  I'm a blogger, author of the Chameleon Moon series - and now Stake Sauce and Death Masqueradedigital artist, singer, actor, geeky video-maker.

I want to use my creativity to help people, especially LGBT, chronically ill/disabled/in pain, neurodivergent/otherwise marginalized people  (LIKE ME!!), feel happy and safe and have a little hope in this increasingly actually dystopian world. 'Cause wow, we need it. I sure do.


We gotta have some hope.
We gotta believe Everything Is Going To Be Okay.
Especially when it hurts.

And that's why I made this Patreon. I need this too. More than I like to ask for.

Because of my chronically crap-tacular health, both mental/emotional and physical/autoimmune disorders, having a 9-to-5 job is pretty freaking impossible. And indie authors generally do not make big money - which is required to survive if you're chronically ill and disabled. So... I'm also pretty scared, all the time.

I know Chameleon Moon has already helped a lot of people, and I want to keep making more - but I need your help to do that.

Have some questions? I have some answers.



"How will my support help you, Sylver?"


  • Very Important MEDS. I take a lot of them, both to not die (seriously), and not be in pain. (Prescription pain meds, antidepressants, anti-seizure, blood circulation helpers, mast cell stabilizers, And More!)
  • Disability/Pain aids - stuff like scoliosis back braces (WANT), compression garments, and therapeutic massage that aren't covered by my insurance. Also, I need a lot of hot showers and electric blankets because my crappy system can't keep me warm.
  • BOOK COSTS. Paying other independent creators and professionals like my amazing editorial, artist and design team. Literally, what you pay here helps me create future art/writing/Chameleon Moon itself.
  • Planning for my future. Eventually actually earning money in the positive instead of costing it. (I'm a millennial, my expectations are in the floor already. But I can dream.)
  • PEACE OF MIND. BREATHING. If I'm not worried/have a safety net in case of emergency (like my mom or myself ending up in the ER, like has happened before and can easily again) - I can write much more easily. Creating is hard when you're too paralyzed with anxiety to move.


"What kinds of things do you make?"


  • Short stories, Chameleon Moon-verse and otherwise. Before anything gets published, you get it first!
  • Character drawings/other art
  • Videos, usually Musical
  • Seriously, tons of stuff, most of which you can request. Check the rewards!

And All. Paid. Content. Is available. To All. Supporters. No matter how much you give. Even $1 will get you everything paid. The $1 patron will see the EXACT same amount of paid content that the $100 patron sees.

The only thing higher tiers pay for are the ability to influence what I make next, like through  commissions/requests. You will never pay for something you don't get to see.




"Okay, how often will you update/charge me?"


A MAXIMUM Of 3 times a month, and probably less. If this is too much for you, Patreon lets you set limits!

(I charge By The Thing because my crappy body/brain often says " hey, you know what, you're lying motionless today!" so, I'll often go months doing nothing - which is why I can't charge by the month here. Not taking your money for doing nothing.)


I'm still overwhelmed with gratitude for the love I've gotten so far. You might remember a picture of me from when I first heard Chameleon Moon was going to be published. All I could do was lie down on the floor and stare at the ceiling. It went a little bit viral and meme-ified.



I'm still there. You know, in my heart.


Thank you for reading. Thank you for being here. Thank you. <3
