Thank you so much for your interest in my Patreon webpage! You now have a chance to join my exclusive community and get access to all kinds of free goodies!

Who are you?

I'm Christina "DZA" Marie, author and blogger. I've run the blog "Dragons, Zombies & Aliens" since college (which is, admittedly, not too long ago) as a means of finding and sharing incredible stories in the sci-fi, fantasy, and horror genres.

And, of course, I write stories myself. Short stories, novellas, short illustrated novelettes, and now books!

Being a novelist has been my dream since I was a kid, and now I have a chance to see it realized!

Currently I live in an apartment with two roommates and a cat who has a personal vendetta against my furniture. Writing is currently a side-gig for me, as I work full-time at Dungarvin, an organization that helps those with mental and/or physical disabilities. I hope to someday soon make writing a full-time profession. 

Why Patreon?

Unfortunately, it's a lot harder to make a living out of writing fun, quality stories than most people realize. (The starving artist is a real thing.) Even working two jobs, I struggle to make rent and pay all my bills. This leads to time and energy being spent on worrying about said rent and bills and picking up extra hours at Dungarvin, when I could be using that time and energy for more writing.

That's why I've come Patreon. I want to continue to give you good quality stuff: fun videos, thoughtful blog posts, and of course, groundbreaking stories in our favorite genres.

For example, this year I am dipping into self-publishing. In November I'm releasing the start of a grimdark graphic novel series called Sovadron, featuring a fantasy world loosely based off of 18th Century America.

[This is where I was going to post an awesome poster done by my illustrator, John Hawkins. But either Patreon or my computer is being mean and won't let me do it. So instead, I'm going to direct you to the Sovadron page on John's website here.]


What's in it for me? 

Fiction, reviews, and videos. 

I have a monthly YouTube channel that I hope to make a weekly gig that covers books, movies, shows, and writing tips. You get a first look at that. 

You will also get access to exclusive content in the form of sneak peaks, advance copies, and first say in any surveys I post concerning what I should write/vlog about. (Pro tip: surveying dedicated fans is a great way to blow through writer's block.)

Granted, these stories, blog posts, and videos would be written anyway even without my receiving a single penny. But you can make them happen a lot sooner and a lot easier, and for that, you have my eternal gratitude. 
Tiers
Zombie
$1 or more per month 3 patrons
Zombies get a monthly meme and the ability to make me break out into a happy dance. Every little bit counts!
Alien
$2 or more per month 3 patrons
Aliens get access to the monthly meme, as well as a sneak peak of all works in progress. 


This includes but is not limited to advance chapters, character sketches for the "Sovadron" graphic novel, and cover art reveal.

Dragon
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
Dragons get the monthly meme and sneak peaks, plus access to my archive of short stories AND the "Sovadron" story as it's being created!


Please note that unlike the memes and sneak peaks, the short stories and Sovadron will not be a monthly thing. They happen when they happen. But unless I am legally unable to show it to you--like for my "Twisted Tales" stories at Sic Semper Serpent--I will publish them here first. :)

Alien Queen (or King)
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
Aliens rulers get all the aforementioned goodies, plus a free digital copy of whatever is being published this month. 
Dragon Zombie Alien
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
Dragon zombie aliens get all the above features, plus a signed physical copy of whatever physical books come out this month.
Goals
$21 of $50 per month
With great ambitions, it's usually best to start small. :)

So far my YouTube channel (now in podcast format) has drawings that are limited to stick figures. With an extra fifty dollars a month in my pocket, I'll be able to expend the time and energy to create better drawings and learn how to give the videos a shiny, professional-looking polish.
