Sidekick

$3
per month
At this entry-level monthly support, you'll get behind-the-scenes glimpses of my work, which may take the form of thoughts on my research or characters or why I'm writing my work-in-progress at the time. From time to time, I'll also send out photos of props in my stories or inspiring places that have influenced my fiction. You'll also get exclusive flash fiction stories whose genres may change from month to month. Speaking of flash, you'll be able to help choose which genre those flash stories will be.

Accomplice

$5
per month
At this level of support, you become part of my CREW. You get all the benefits of the Sidekick tier as well as the benefits of being my Accomplice. You can help brainstorm character names, and parts of their personalities. You get exclusive short stories that might be a side-story associated with some of my other fiction, or it could be something completely stand-alone.
You'll also be publicly thanked in the acknowledgements of any published works of fiction when that comes along. (Unless you tell me specifically not to. You know, in case you're in hiding.) You'll also receive essays that provide a glimpse of life as an author. This might be a look at why I write what I do or some aspect of life here in Northern Ontario - where many of my characters live. Sometimes, these essays may include photos of things that find their way into my fiction. And finally, you'll get sneak peeks at a scene from a draft of a current work in progress. Sometimes, this might look more like character profiles of the people that populate my fiction.

About Carolyn McBride

I'm an author who would love to make it a full time career. I write fiction; short stories, flash, novellas and novels. I have so many stories rolling around in my head, I might never get them all written! I write mystery, science fiction, speculative, fantasy, dystopian and sometimes works that defy easy categorization. But all of them are driven by characters who are changing their world in some way. Sometimes with grand gestures and plans, and others on a smaller, more intimate scale. Sometimes they have to step up and save their world, and sometimes each other. I want to show you their worlds, introduce you to these people who whisper in my ear and insist I tell you their story. They want me to share their adventures with you. Are you willing to make that happen? Are you ready to go on a grand adventure, see new worlds and do the impossible with a cast of characters you'll never forget? Join me on this exciting journey, become my patron and share in my amazing adventure!

Still not sure? Maybe you have questions? Hopefully, we've addressed them below.

Q: How do I become your patron?
A: You need either a credit card or a paypal account. Then simply click and follow the instructions!

Q: How long do I have to be subscribed?
A: The minimum is 1 month. After the first payment is processed at the beginning of the month, you can cancel your subscription, easy peasy!

Q: I can't afford to subscribe, is there another way I can help?
A: Of course! Spread the word via Goodreads, your blog if you have one, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr...whatever social media you spend time on. Telling people about my fiction and about my patreon page can help people become interested. Never underestimate the power of the word of mouth!


Goals
$11.55 of $100 per month
When I reach my first $100, I'll be able to purchase a web-domain so that I can offer a more reader-interactive website.
(I have a free one right now, but I'd love to be able to offer more ways for readers to connect with me)
