Hello! And thanks for stopping by and checking out my Patreon account!I'm excited to share my project with you!
This Patreon account is dedicated to spreading my mission through sharing about empowering fiction, including my Young Adult kickass heroine series, Henrietta The Dragon Slayer, and my sweet magical romance series, Touchstone series.
To empower women and girls to be the hero of their own lives and jump into adventure with both feet.
HOW I DO THIS
Via creating novellas, novels, and other forms of fiction, including:
The Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series, a 3-book young adult adventure fantasy series. For readers ages 12 and up.
If you're already a reader and a fan of Henrietta and her friends, thank you!
If you'd like to support the expansion of my mission via my Henrietta books, then thank you even more.Part of your Patreon support will help me ship books to reviewers.
I'm all about getting these books in the hands of more readers to spread my message of empowering girls and women.
I have readers and reviewers all over the world: Canada, UK, Greece, Philippines, India, Pakistan, Vietnam, and more.
As I'm not backed by a traditional publisher and am funding my empire on my own and through donations.
Among other things, your support means I can ship books to my reviewers awaiting them all over the world!
More about these books on my site here:
Your support also means I can spread the word about my sweet magical romance. More about that here.
MORE FICTION COMING!I'm always working on new projects. When you become a patron, you will hear about them first-hand, get the inside scoop and get inside peeks of the stories as they develop.
Who am I?
I am the award-winning author of the young adult adventure fantasy novel, Henrietta The Dragon Slayer, the first book in a trilogy, featuring Henrietta and her friends.
You can read an excerpt of the first book in the series here:
I also write sweet romance, science fiction mysteries, and non-fiction instructional, motivational, and inspirational material for novelists. More about my creativity coaching and teaching business for authors here: http://bethbarany.com/.
I am an independently-published author. Self-published. No traditional publisher. This means I am doing this on my own, so your support helps me accomplish my mission!
More on My Mission
My mission with all my work, and especially with the Henrietta The Dragon Slayer series, is to empower women and girls to be the hero of their own lives and jump into adventure with both feet.
We learn a lot by example and by story.
And we need more stories of strong young women grappling with standing tall and going for it and then doing it.
What does that look like? What could that look like in your own life?
All my fiction wrestles with these issues and entertains at the same time.
Because it is through
story that we learn how to be in the world.
And it is
by example. I'm jumping in with both feet. Will you join me?!
Your support means so much to me and to the readers who you will help me reach.
If you pledge, I have plenty of goodies for you, starting at the $1 level because I believe that everyone should be able to lend support, if they want to.
Pledges are monthly, and are billed on the 1st of the month by Patreon. They take a small fee, about 11 cents per dollar.
Though your on-going support would mean a lot to me and my mission, you can unsubscribe at anytime.
