The Summoned
$1
per month

I've lured you in with promises of monthly chunks of my works in progress, background on the WiPs, or things like playlists and whatnot. You get to see it when it's still messy. Lucky you ;-) 

The Familiar
$3
per month

You get the same WIP stuff as the Summoned. You just love me more. KIDDING! You will also get access to pictures of my minions. Might be the two legged ones or the four legged ones. They're all adorable, so you know you're going to love them. 

The Bound
$5
per month

You get all the same rewards as the Summoned and the Familiar. But you have now bound yourself to me for life. Okay, not really, but it would be cool if I could do that. Seriously though, if you're willing to help me out this much, I will personally thank you in the acknowledgements of my books. [NOTE: on the chance that the number of patrons becomes unwieldy, this will apply to the first book finished (ie--in time for me to add you) after you sign up. To start though, you get a personal nod in every book after you sign up!]

About

Hi all! I'm Seleste. I write books. I am particularly fond of books with murder and mayhem--please don't tell the people who publish my romances... (Mainly because while I can kiss people in real life, killing them is frowned upon, so I have to do that in fiction.) 

Anyway, other things you should know about me:
- I'm a single mom of two awesome teens (in fact, Mini-me helped name the tiers and figure out the reward levels)
- I have four pets. The city limits the number of pets per household or we'd probably have more. (Honestly, if I didn't think my jerk of a neighbor would report me for having more, we might still have more.) 
- I'm a former high school science teacher and a former lab technician 
- Roughly 99.99% of the time, Snark is my preferred language
- Unlikeable heroines are my favorite kind of heroines. Why? Because they're the kind of people I'd most likely befriend
- I am an adult child...or is it childish adult? Anyway, I laugh at fart jokes and generally don't take life too seriously, until I have no choice. 
- I detest liars, coconut, and coffee. Actually, I wish I liked coffee, but it makes me sickly. Then again, it also reinforces that whole "child" thing when I go on a "coffee date" and order a Pepsi. 

Why Patreon? 

As a full-time author, I'm paid on a schedule (and in amounts) that are erratic at best. As I'd like to remain a full-time author, Patrons will help me keep a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, and the electricity on (which is kind of important with the writing thing). If I'm honest, the first couple hundred every month will go toward the medications that keep me alive and (relatively) healthy. 

Additionally, with a steady income stream, I will be able to devote more time to writing, which means more books! And everyone loves more books :) 
Goals
2 of 100 patrons
A new piece of flash fiction (500-3000 words) every month we remain at this level. Once I figure out how to get messages, this will include input from Patrons about guidelines for the piece (ie: inspired by this song/piece of art, has to include a ______, from the point of view of _____) I'll draw a few each month and use those as my framework for the story.
