My name is Ariele Joy Sieling the 1st, author, homeowner, cat/dog owner, and all around universe lover. I am primarily a scifi writer, though I occasionally delve into to fantasy or kid's books. I currently have 5 published books in my Sagittan Chronicles series, and 7 in my kid's book series Rutherford the Unicorn Sheep. But I'm not here to talk about either of those. I'm here to talk about monsters! Also the apocalypse.

I've always wanted to write a serial and I've always wanted to write about the apocalypse, so what could be better than doing them both at the same time? Meet Land of Szornyek. In each episode you'll encounter a new monster, meet new characters, and explore a brand new universe filled with horrifying, blood-sucking, brain-eating monsters (gargs, for short). 

Monsters + the apocalypse is a simple enough concept, but it's not easy to survive with a bloodthirsty nagy chasing you through the woods. Or thousands of small slimy mushroom-hatted gargs waiting for you to fall asleep so they can slit your throat and drink your blood. Or an entire pack of horse-sized saber-tooth skeletal lions that basically can't die.

I decided to try out Patreon for this particular project because I wanted an easy way to share throat-ripping, neck-snapping monsters, and the platform is perfectly suited to this type of work. Not only that, but as part of my world-building exercises, I've done a ton of drawings of monsters, the characters, places in the universe, and maps--and Patreon provides a members-only space to talk, share, and explore. My goal is to release one chapter every 3 - 4 weeks starting in late May 2018, and with it 1 or 2 drawings of scenes or characters. For the higher level subscribers, you'll get more detailed drawings turned into desktop backgrounds, postcards, or posters; I'll even be doing a printed version of each chapter which I will send out signed for those of you who like collecting things.

Patreon also provides a way for me to hopefully pay a few bills, while continuing to be able to write, invent monsters, and meet people. I do a lot of comic cons, so hopefully I will be able to meet some of you in person, and battle some monsters out in the real world.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my Patreon page and the Land of Szornyek serial! May the garg's blood rain!
