Allie McCormack is creating Romance Novels

Hello, and Welcome! I'm Allie McCormack. I'm a writer and a storyteller. What I write and live and breathe is romance stories, I love romances, and I love writing them and bringing happily ever after to the characters who run around in my head demanding that I tell their stories! It gives me great pleasure, and I love to share that pleasure!

I currently have one contemporary romance, Truck Stop, that's available as Kindle or paperback, and soon (mid-December 2018) as an Audible audiobook.

I have five more finished novels that I'm preparing to release in 2019 and 2020, and I'm working on more all the time. Currently I have 2 books finished of a 4-book contemporary multicultural (Arab-American) romance series, 3 books finished of a 4-book (so far) paranormal romance series, and a paranormal romance trilogy in a 16th century Arabian Nights style setting that's been written but is undergoing major revisions.

Did I mention, I love to share? I love to talk about my plots, my characters, their stories, and just.. my delight in the worlds that I create around all this.

Patrons would have access to all kinds of writing-related content, at varying levels but at the very least all Patrons could count on these from me:
  • Excerpts from my current manuscript, as I write along
  • Excerpts from other finished manuscripts
  • Excerpts/Teasers from my published novels
  • Advance notice of planned releases, probably long before I go public with it
  • Insight into agonizing indecisiveness over plot points in the current manuscript
  • Long (but probably not tedious) explanations of why I chose a certain plot point over another and other such trivial decisions that writers have to deal with on a moment-by-moment basis
  • Enthusiastic sharing of any pictures I come across that remind me of a certain person or place in one of my stories
  • Enthusiastic sharing of... well, let's face it... just about anything as it relates to my writing!

Higher levels of tiers may include such things as:
  • Advance look at new covers! You'll be the first to see any new cover as I get it from the cover designer (with the exception of my mother and daughter, of course!)
  • Advance look at any book trailers, commissioned artwork, etc.
  • Signed paperbacks (only for residents of USA)
  • Occasional swag! Coffee cups, coasters, bookmarks, etc. (only for residents of USA)
  • Chapters of my audiobooks
  • Your name listed on the Acknowledgments page of any upcoming releases as a Patron
I hope this intrigues you enough that you want to follow along in my journey and share in the excitement and anticipation... and sometimes, yes, even disappointments... as I follow the avocation of my heart.

Goals

This is just the beginning of creating... hopefully! ...a base of readers who love what I write! At this point, I'd kick things up a notch... for instance, being open to more active participation by my patreons as far as input, what they'd like to see, what kinds of things interest them that I could provide.
