Welcome to the Patreon page for Angi Shearstone, creator of BloodDreams. I started posting chapters of BloodDreams at JukePop starting in May 2015, and I hope you've been enjoying it! If you haven't checked it out what are you waiting for? BloodDreams has been on JukePop's top 30 since August, so there's a good chance you'll like it. It's an urban fantasy chock full of vampires on the verge of extinction, punk rock, political intrigue, lots of action and drama, a little baseball, and even a few cats !

Beyond my work on BloodDreams, I blog about creativity at the Amazing Stories website, and create fine art and illustration – BloodDreams started as a fully painted comic. I started converting the scripts to prose in 2013 and I suspect the story always wanted to be this way, it just needed to simmer in my head for 18 years before telling me.

I also quite often need to move cats out of the way so I can work. This *might* be from around dinnertime, but it might not:



Please check my writing and art out and make a pledge if you like what you see. The things I do take time and are made of pure creative desire and love. 

Right off the bat, you get my eternal gratitude and everlasting good karma.

Then you get downloads of the first two comic issues and a PDF of what I've posted at JukePop – you'll also get that as an ebook when it's gone through formatting  professional proofreading & editing – important things that could use your support.

You'll get previews of new BloodDreams content and you'll see new artwork – and purchase at a discount – before anyone else can see. Some levels include artwork among the rewards. I will also mention your name on a thank-you page at BloodDreams.com, in every incarnation of the book, and in future incarnations of the comic books & graphic novels.

No matter what, regardless of support, I post at least two chapters of BloodDreams at JukePop, and two posts at Amazing Stories creativity blog. I'll also make at least two new paintings available.

I have full-time and overtime levels of ideas, energy and commitment to this work. Given the chance, I would work on it all full time and overtime.

Your contribution helps me buy that time to work on my own creations, and directly impacts how quickly and easily the BloodDreams novels get written. It helps me keep stocked in art & framing supplies. And it helps keep Smudge, Rudie and Rosie rolling in cat food!

I’ve got a LOT more BloodDreams in store for 2016, and I hope you'll come along for the ride!
