About Anna Burke

I am so glad you stumbled upon my Patreon page! I am all about writing (and reading) queer fiction, and if you are, too, then you're in the right place. Those of you who have read my work know that I like crazy science, dark fairy tales, f/f pairings, and the occasional sea monster--along with a healthy dose of cli-fi (climate fiction). And no, you don't need to be queer to enjoy my books, I promise.

My first novel, the award winning, Compass Rose, follows a young navigator as she braves the seas of the future. My second novel, Thorn, has been described as "Frozen meets Beauty and the Beast, but without the dancing teacups and with a lot more blood." Nottingham, my third novel, will be out this January, and as the title suggests is a queer retelling of Robin Hood. (Hint: there's a Nun Tuck and the characters span the gender binary) I am also embarking on a top secret project with my publisher, Bywater Books, that may or may not be a contemporary romance series.

So why become a patron? As a patron, you'll get an insight into my writing process, sneak peeks at upcoming work, author readings, serial installments of stories I haven't published yet, and more. I will answer your questions and let you know what I'm writing and reading in a monthly video blog or podcast, and you'll get original fiction +/- an author reading in your inbox every month. Basically, it's like walking around my office, only you won't have to trip over my dogs. If you aren't ready to become a patron, you can always follow me on Instagram or Twitter @annaburkeauthor, or check out my website at www.annahburke.com.

What does Patreon do for creators? Here's the reality: writing doesn't make a lot of money. Most writers have day jobs, with a few notable exceptions (think J. K. Rowling). The rest of us write because we love it, and the more we can earn from our writing, the more we can write. Your contributions help me pay my bills and spend more time putting my characters through hell for your enjoyment. You might have noticed I have several tiers. Right now, the benefits for all tiers are the same. This might change as time goes on, but as a grad student with chronic health problems I understand financial constraints. I hope you pay what you can and enjoy the content, and thanks for stopping by!
