About Birdy & Mike Diamond, Bardic Ravens & Curious CatBirds
Birdy here, welcoming you to our little corner of the Rabbit Hole! Here, Mike and I will be sharing news and Goodness from Bold Kitten's Avian Empire, our gamified way of sharing our multi-passionate creativity with you.
Our interests and points-of-creativity are so wide ranging that we will be spreading the Goodness across all of our nine Patreons, for those of you who'd like to specialize.
Here on this Patreon, we will be sharing news of what we are doing across the breadth of the Empire, as well as places in the Empire that don't fit any of the other molds.
Exploring our posts across the Empire, you will find:
- Stories, or as we purr-furr to call them, Tantalizing Tales – Fiction, Fiction Isn’t, Non-fiction (BardicRaven)
- Notes from the Journey and Scenes from the Studio – tales of Backstage Goodness - purr-ojects pounced and lessons learned
- Magpie Missives and Meditations from our Guides, (BardicRaven)
- Organized Knots in yarn and wire-wrapped stone – patterns and purr-ojects (Skein & Story)
- Cards – oracle, tarot, purr-ompt (BardicRaven)
- Mews-ic – filked and original tunes, heading for staged purr-oductions (Bold Kitten Prrroductions)
and more! The rest of the links will be linked here soon. We’re multi-passionate creatives and we’re (finally) not afraid to show it! (We are also fond of exclamation points and alliteration – fair warning! :D )
Where you come in
Creatives create for themselves, furr-st and foremost, because if we don’t love what we make, how can we expect anyone else to do so? But that’s not the whole story.
We also need an audience – to compliment, to critique, to join us in creative comaraderies. To reflect the stories back one to another and let the legends grow, the lessons and the lives resonate out in wondrous ripples as far as the heart can purr-ceive.
And... Mike and I need a way to make a living. Yes, it’s not romantic. Yes, it’s not the stuff of great tales (except for the times that it is), but it is a reality for all of us, and Mike and I no less than any other – we need some way to put a roof over our heads, food in our bellies (and the belly of Leona, our cat, who quite insists on this), clothes on our bodies, and support for all those who depend on us.
The more that you join us in this Journey, the more that we can concentrate solely on the Creative Goodness that you love, and the less we have to spend time and energy worrying about all the rest of it.
Which means, among other more esoteric things such as more joy in the world in general because there are two fewer freaking humans in the world in specific, that there will be more Creative Goodness for you, since we will be able to devote our full time and attention to our Muses and our people, and thereby, to you, through the Creative Goodnesses they help us to make!
And who wouldn’t want more Creative Goodnesses from the artists that they love?And who doesn't enjoy discovering new artists to add to the list of those they love?
Why joining us here in the Empire is Awesome
- You will get to see our Journeys – creative, psychic, purr-sonal – and the Backstage Goodness that goes into our words and works! Learn the stories behind the stories – and be a part of them through your reading, listening, and commenting!
- Interact with us and our people through interviews and other Goodness!
- You will have the chance to ask questions about our words and our works! Wondering when and what the next installment will be? Wondering when/where the next exploration will lead us? The next convention we'll be appearign at or the next pawdcats we'll be on? Join us to find out.
What your joining us in the Empire will mean for us
- The ability to concentrate on our creations and explorations, free from fear about how we will pay our bills, where the next month’s rent is coming from, and all the rest of the daily distractions that keep one up at night and far from the creative field.
- The ability to upgrade our equipment, the better to bring you better Goodness!
- The ability to pay our voice talents to bring our stories to life, and to start putting together some of our larger Dreams and Schemes!
- The ability to pay for transportation to sci-fi conventions – purr-haps one near you!
- The ability to start pouncing some of our larger Dreams and Schemes - turning Wonderland Publishing House into an actual publishing house, bringing some of our stage and screen prrrojects to life, sharing Yarnish Goodness with those in need, and more!
Why we ask for your physical addy
Because we love happy mail, and hope to be able to share the wealth as we go on and settle down and settle in. No promises, but fond hopes.
Looking forward to seeing you join us in the Empire and down the Rabbit Hole!

Elevenses are a big thing with us, so while clearly a beginning, hitting this level is also a definite Sign of Progress.
