A.L. Mabry is I and I am she. Also known as Amanda to my friends and a few other choice names we won't repeat here. I am a founder and Executive Marketing Manager at Our Write Side, a company built by authors for authors. The drive behind OWS is helping authors to fulfill their writing dreams and connect with their readers without breaking the bank to do so. The talented staff at OWS volunteer their time to help with everything from editing to marketing and graphic art work. I am a multi-genre author myself, currently working on a fantasy trilogy and a dystopian series while dabbling in short stories, poetry, and prompt writing.
I dedicate my time to many different causes close to my heart, including mental health awareness, domestic abuse, child abuse awareness, and anti-bullying campaigns. I have an obsessive love of vampires, kilts, and blue butterflies.

When I am not writing, advocating or creating handmade items in my art studio, I can be found exploring creeks, mountains, and rivers, playing board games, videos games and working on various projects with my loving husband, Shawn and our beautiful blended family of 5 teenagers. (That was one really long run on sentence.)

On a whim I asked my friends how they would describe me, you can see their responses here.



Writing is my passion but it doesn't always provide a regular income. A full novel or a series takes a tremendous amount of time to produce and perfect. In order to keep my income steady and writing constant, I need to find a balance. That's where Patreon comes in. This isn't a plea for donations, it is a chance to purchase quality stories and support an author you love (you *do* love me right?) This platform gives me the chance to share my work and buy my coffee! 

In addition to writing, I do a lot of my own graphic work (although I do have a fantastic graphic artist in my corner!) and I make videos on Youtube. There are costs involved in creating quality work, as any artist can tell you. I am hoping at the very least to offset those expenses. At the most, to avoid picking up a nine to five and severely limiting my writing time.

I can share short stories and other surprises with a dedicated audience here while also working on my bigger projects and continuing to help other authors. 

By default, your support here will also be supporting Our Write Side. I put everything I can into the OWS community as do my business partners. We run fully on volunteers, coffee, a few tears, and lots of love! One of our goals over the next year is to establish an online learning community for authors with courses available at incredibly affordable prices. 



I have a passion for short stories that explore the darker side of the human condition. I want you to come with me as we push the boundaries of pain and misfortune while exploring both sides of the coin. Some stories will come from the PoV of a victim and some from the aggressor. We will venture into many wilted fields filled with the carcasses of imagined abuses, losses, self-loathing, and wretchedness. Darkness touches each of us to different degrees throughout our lives and here we will witness it first hand.

Each month I will share a short story that is slated to be published in Darker Daze: The Storms Within. Each supporter here contributing $3 or more per month will receive a signed paperback of Darker Daze when it is published in the fall of 2018.

In addition to the short stories, I will be posting exclusive videos of my writing process, readings of these stories, and a bit of nonsense. We can't be serious all the time!

I am a survivor of some of the darkest that humanity has to offer. I survived and I am here. I am happy and I am safe. I am also thirsty. Your generous contributions will ensure I never run out of Peace Tea and coffee as I slave away at this demanding keyboard.



I am currently finishing up Soul Purge, which is the first book in the Chthonian Guardian Trilogy. It will be followed by Soul Battle and Soul Triumph. This trilogy follows the intertwining lives of Chthonians, Fae, and, humans in an epic tale of love, loss, and defeating destiny. 

Queen Bethia is responsible for every soul in existence. She spends hours checking the souls and guiding them along their journey to Transcendence. When one of her most trusted Guardians makes a fatal decision she is forced to hand down her harshest punishment. A soul purge.
 
Rashu makes an uncharacteristic decision to shirk his duties to ensure the safety of his anam cara (soul mate). His decision is the catalyst that shatters the destiny of the Chthonians and everything they touch.

Tiago believes the Queen was too lenient on Rashu and sets out on his own vigilante mission. The problem is his plans never quite work out and he finds himself protecting the one person he vowed to destroy.

Emilia is recovering from the loss of her family and life as she knew it when she finds herself caught up in a magical world she never knew existed. Or, so she thought. She did know, over and over, only recalling the memories at her 18th birthday each life. Now she will either be the destroyer or be the savior. Which Chthonian will win her trust? 



Are there ever! I recently submitted fifteen poems to an Anthology titled, Ambrosia, which will be published later this year by OWS Ink. I also have more series on the back burner including; Thrall, Vivamus, and The Fowl Kings.

Immortal Mine, the first book of the Thrall series brings us into the world of Beatrice. She is a newer vampire enslaved in the mines of Southern Kentucky and hoping her lottery day will come. Humans keep the vamps fed just enough to make them work but not enough to make them dangerous. So they think.

Vivamus: In a dystopian society that is masquerading as a Utopian society, we will learn to question everything. Our number 1 question is: Are we real?
Meet the replacement kids from C.I.R.F. (Child Insurance Replacement Facility) and follow along as we learn what it’s like to grow up as a backup kid. Can we conform and become exact copies of genetic donors or will we struggle with who it is we are really meant to be? We are vivamus, and these are our stories.

Unwet: The first tale in the Fowl Kings series. Here we meet the Raven King and sweet Keira. Keira has been banished from not only her coven, but her world and only the Raven King can get her home again. The Raven King is enduring a banishment of his own and Keira is his only hope of returning to his kingdom. Someone is going home and someone will be making the ultimate sacrifice.

This is just a sampling of all that is to come! Join me on this wild fantasy ride and you will not be disappointed!

Goals
$34 of $500 per month
I'll be completely honest here. This is my first rodeo on this platform. I'm nervous and I don't really know what to expect. Once I reach this goal I will record myself reading one of the stories I share here. I will even put on makeup. And brush my hair. I'll probably still be wearing pajama pants, so no camera panning.
