Welcome to The Kingdoms of the Nine Muses

Hello, lovers of fantasy and fellow travelers, 
     My name is C. J. Romagnolo. I'm a recent graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, and for over a year now I have been working on and off on a fantasy novel. It is my passion project and the only reason I'm not falling apart without the familiar structure that school provides. I'm excited to share it with you all. Writing and literature have been a huge part of my life for so long and I hope that I can inspire others by documenting my creative experience through Patreon.
     I want to create fiction that takes real-world issues and places them into a different context, an unknown place/world. 

     This is why I need your help!
  • First, to keep me on track of course, for I am well known for my excellent procrastination habits. 
  • Second, to help me survive in this cruel capitalist society while I focus on writing. I will maintain a regular job as well, but any sort of support would be appreciated! 
  • Third, and most importantly, to get my book published! Time may be an illusion, and money may be a social construct, but alas, writing takes time, living takes money, and getting published seems to cost an arm and a leg. 
  • Fourth, to be able to pay my amazing friend, Mara. She's such a talented artist, and I've asked her to draw my characters and possibly the cover of the finished book! My 3-6 job is not enough to pay her or do much of anything, really. 
     But in the end, this is less about money and more about creating a great work of Fantasy to share with the world, and I want all of you to be a part of it. 
   
My world is filled with strong women: Queens, Warriors, Practitioners of Magia, etc, and it also deals with larger societal issues from a different perspective/setting. I hope to build a world that reflects our own, but in such a way that it can also act as a temporary escape from all the horror and devastation that we are facing today. I mean come on, every day there is something new to worry about, stress over, and get extremely angry at. Why do you think so many people like reading and writing fiction/fantasy? They want to escape, even for only a brief moment. My hope is to be able to create these types of moments, brief escapes, and I would like to share them with you. Let's escape the orange terror together, if only for a few hours.
    By becoming my patrons, this world will become a familiar escape. You will come to know everything about it, its people, its beauty, its dilemmas, and its secrets. Depending on the tier you choose, you will gain exclusive access to a number of chapters, charts, maps, character info, and more. Your patronage will keep me afloat and motivated to write more and more with each passing day. I hope you will consider becoming part of this universe.
