Hi, I'm Cynthia.
If you want more of my story and what I generally write about, check out my blog at CynthiaJeub.com or "Insights on Epic Living." I've been telling stories about my family and what it was like to grow up with fifteen brothers and sisters in a conservative Christian family, and to be on reality TV. My story includes changes in political ideology, struggling with my religion, and the recovery process from realizing my parents were abusive and losing access to my little brothers and sisters. I also blog about other things, like how to live life as an epic story, personality types, and philosophy.

How I'll Use Your Donation
Writing takes time, and right now I'm busy working multiple jobs to support myself. This will help me pay bills like rent and insurance, while still having time to work on a book. In addition to writing a book, I'll still upload YouTube videos and keep my blog updated. I'll also set funds aside for things that authors need - a professional editor, a publisher, publicity and printing costs, and possibly traveling expenses for book tours.

How Patreon Works
Some funding websites let you raise money for one project at a time. Patreon lets you donate small amounts on a monthly basis for ongoing projects. I'm always going to be working on three things: my blog, my YouTube channel, and my book(s). I update my blog and YouTube channel more often, and the current book is a larger project that will take several months to complete. When you offer monthly support, you'll give me what I need to release regular content, and depending on how much you give, I can offer you exclusive rewards.

The Project I'm Working On Now: 'Music in the Dream House' - The Book
The project I'm starting with is a book about my upbringing. It was tentatively titled "Growing Up Jeub," but in 2018 I chose a new working title, "Music in the Dream House." I've always written with descriptors from the music that has shaped my life. And I've always been a dreamer, and my siblings were dreamers, so the illusory nature of our reality in a world of sheltered gaslighting is naturally described as a dream. My parents' book was titled "Love in the House," which was a far-off dream compared to our reality. So I call it the dream house.

Many of you who've been following along with my story on my blog have seen hints of the full story, but I've only been giving snapshots, with thematic blog posts. I'm working on a book with a more linear story, starting from the beginning. There are things people are asking about, that I've tried to blog about, and it's just too long and complicated to explain on my blog alone. These things include how my family got to know Michael and Debi Pearl, and what it was like to have them stay in our house. Pro-life advocate Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family had never seen an ultrasound until 2004, when my mom was pregnant with one of my little brothers. This book will be full of fresh content, not just a copy of what's already on my blog.

That's my first project, but Patreon is an ongoing campaign, and I have more to write about than just my family. However, I know that not everybody cares as much about the same content, so you'll know when I'm finished and am moving on to something else.

What Happens When I Switch Projects?
When I finish this book and move onto another writing project, I will let all of you know so you can adjust what you want to help me with. If a book about education or spirituality is more interesting to you than my family past, just watch my blog for the update that I'm switching to a new project. Similarly, if you'd rather not hear about my thoughts on religion, you can always withdraw your support once I'm finished publishing the book I'm working on right now.

Become a Patron, Get Exclusive Content
If you enjoy my blog and want to read my books when they come out, that's great! Please don't feel like you owe me anything for that. I'm honored that people want to read my work. Some people have said they want to support me, so this is an opportunity for you to do that. If you want to support me, I'll do my best to offer you exclusive content and access to express my thanks. Patreon is cool because if you give me support, you get special content that my regular blog readers don't get. Here's what you'll get, based on how much you pledge per month:

Goals
$434 of $500 per month
With this amount, I'm able to rely on Patreon as a source of income that frees up my time to write. This includes writing on my blog, working on my book, and studying the subjects I'm writing about. This frees up my time, but still doesn't leave much left over to invest - so my research and studies are limited to libraries and free resources.
