Why am I using Patreon? Here’s the SHORT version:

My name is Tui Snider. I’m a  bestselling author and  speaker. After a series of health scares and other constraints, my husband and I are taking a round-the-world cruise. WiFi will be expensive, slow, and scarce, so my travel updates will be here rather than scattered across the web. (Just click the "follow" button if you'd like to get my public updates. Those are FREE!)



What's in it for YOU?
In return for supporting my creative journey, I'll have fun giving you:
                *personalized postcards with my own photos from around the world
                *a private digital scrapbook  (see blog posts for details)    
                *access to Patrons-only updates here
                *Free books: both ebooks and paperbacks
                *sneak peeks at all my creative projects.
                *recognition in the Acknowledgments of my upcoming books.

My goal for you:
My goal for you as a Patreon supporter is to make you smile, laugh, and/or feel a little inspired each time you visit my page. I hope I can succeed and maybe even ignite your curiosity and creativity along the way!

Any requests?
No, I won't play Free Bird, but is there something else you would like? Just ask and I'll consider adding it!



Exactly what am I creating?
In addition to making personalized postcards with my own photos and sharing travel updates here, I will be creating a Private Edition Digital Scrapbook of my round-the-world travel memoir AND working on the following unique book projects in 2019:

  • It's Not a Small World - a memoir based on my upcoming round-the-world cruise.
  • Making Memories with Bob - a dementia caregivers memoir.
  • 6 Feet Under Texas - a book about quirky and infamous burials in Texas.
  • Understanding Cemetery Symbols, 2nd edition - an updated version of my top-selling book.

A little more about my books:
In 2014, I self-published my first book, a playful travel guide entitled Unexpected Texas. Within 2 days of its release, Unexpected Texas was #1 on Amazon’s Dallas - Fort Worth Travel bestseller list. (And even today, it continues to sell steadily and remains a bestseller on Amazon!)

One book led to another!
You can see a full list of ALL  my books on Amazon by clicking herebut here’s a quick run down of my two most recent books:

Understanding Cemetery Symbols: This is my top-selling book, an international Amazon bestseller which hit bestseller lists in the UK and Australia. It is also carried by 27 libraries, including ones in Canada ,New Zealand, and Australia. Sales continue to be brisk!

100 Things to Do in Dallas - Fort Worth Before You Die, 2nd edition: My latest Amazon best-selling book is a playful bucket list of day trip ideas for North Texas. It's also my first book with a traditional publisher.

Why Patreon?
WiFi is going to be pricey and scarce, so rather than struggle to update my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and while traveling around the world, I will focus on updating this Patreon page while delivering FUN content to those who want to come along for the ride! Even after we return to Texas, I will continue to use Patreon as a creative hub rather than scatter my energy.

Where YOU come in!
This is where YOU come in. By contributing as little as $1 per month towards my Patreon account, you will assist me in staying focused on getting my writing projects written in 2019. (This includes the necessary travel, research, and photography, in addition to writing.)

What's in it for YOU?
In return for supporting my creative journey, I'll have fun giving you:
  • postcards from around the world
  • a private digital scrapbook (see blog posts for details) 
  • access to Patrons-only updates here
  • Free books: both ebooks and paperbacks
  • sneak peeks at all my creative projects.
  • recognition in the Acknowledgments of my upcoming books.

Thank you for supporting me!
