Thank you so much for your support. Every dollar counts, and your presence means more than I can tell. In addition to the feed and paid content, this level gives you access to polls for s and most other misc polls.
Thank you, now and forever! In addition to the polls listed under, you get to vote on books to review and commissioned art!
Depending on reward level achieved, I will be writing shorts for the entire Patreon (decided by polls), but with this level you get to choose your own fic. This is in addition to the collective ones, and will still be posted publicly. I reserve the right to refuse any topic I deem harmful.
You may also request a blog post instead.
This is a one time offer.
I am an arospec asexual writer hailing from Quebec City, a francophone, a lover of squids, hot air balloons, and many science-y things. My two main digs are fantasy and solarpunk, and my fiction tends towards complex multi-storylined novels that center friendship, found families, and other non-romantic relationships. I build detailed universes and series, and would love to share more with you. Here are the two mains :
- Isandor is a City of Spires of merchants family vying for power through trade wars. It's a high fantasy universe, with elves and magic and magic great classic tropes. Mainly trilogies and novellas (debuted February 2017)
- Baker Thief is a science-fantasy series of standalone novels in the fictional French ciy of Val-de-mer. Every novel shifts the focus on different characters, but they always feature one arospec MC (expected debut: June 2018)
All of these are (or will be) published through the Kraken Collective, a cooperative of QUILTBAG science-fiction and fantasy authors I launched early in September with other amazing indie authors. Patrons will get to see more of them, vote on the content they want (reviews, extra fiction, worldbuilding, blogging), and chat with me any time.
I write a lot and edit! If I could, I would spend my life with fiction--reading, writing, editing, gaming! And this is what this Patreon is ultimately about. The goal is three-fold:
- Provide more of my fictional universes to my fans. Especially Isandor! This world has existed in one for or another since 2006 and it is wide and deep. There are so many stories, small and big, that won't make it into novels! But here they can,
- Translate my fiction from English to French. I write directly in English, but I love French and it is an incredibly important part of my identity. Translations either cost a lot of money or a lot of time, however. Having my stories available in both language would give me warm fuzzies.
- Quit my day job and write for a living. This is a very faraway goal, and I hold no illusions about the work it involves, but I like to aim high and work hard!
Every two months, you get to choose one book containing ace or aro representation for me to analyze in depth. This is more than a simple review! Patrons of the Helpful Hands tier ($3) get to vote for this, but everyone sees it.
