About Bast Ravenshadow

I have been writing fiction and doing editing work for over twenty years, and have self published some collections and novels in a limited venue. I primarily work in fanfiction, but have written extensively in the genre of gay original fiction. I have four novels available to purchase on Amazon. One which is gay (m/m) original fiction (Men in the Moon), two are m/f/m erotica (Deep Magik, The Catalyst) and All That Matters is m/f erotica:

My stories, written with my co-author Sekhmet, generally feature character driven explorations of relationships in real life, fantasy, science fiction, and vampire/werewolf stories; some are sweet romances and others are deeper looks at human psychology.

I was able to travel early on in my writing, and offer my books in person, as well as hold other, regular employment. Now, the chronic illness and the severe depression I've battled for most of my adult life has become much more severe, and I am unable to hold a regular job because of the debilitating effects of my illnesses. A simple cold that might last two weeks in an otherwise healthy person will make me bedridden for six weeks. So, what was once a hobby that helped a bit is now the only way I have to make some money on my own schedule to help support myself and my family. However, due to my illnesses, many times I am unable to write. Getting out of bed is an accomplishment sometimes. I cannot get disability; I was turned down because I no longer have my medical records detailing my illness and cannot get new medical records without expensive tests and doctor visits I cannot afford.

The constant stress of how to cover food and utilities and just live life increases the frequency and severity of the painful crippling flare-ups of my illness. It's a cycle only increased income will alleviate.

By becoming my patron, you will not only contribute to my financial peace of mind so that I can keep writing and editing, but you will help ensure that I am fed every month, that I can keep a roof over our heads, and, in time, that I can get the medical care I need.

I believe the arts – writing and creating, helping others to write and share their stories, is a vital part of our culture and society. I thank you for taking the time to read this and please know that anything you feel moved to do is greatly appreciated.
