E. Marie Robertson

is creating exciting new worlds with science fiction/fantasy writing and VR!
Welcome, friends and prospective patrons! I'm so glad you're here!

I want to introduce you to my worlds. I envision them. I write them. And then I build them. Literally.

 I’m taking all of my skills and combining them into an intensive immersive experience of being within a story as it comes to life--on the page and in virtual reality. I hope you’ll come with me on this journey, celebrate my successes, learn from my mistakes, and have a lot of fun and learn a few things along the way. And at the end of it all, we’ll be able to walk through the worlds of my novels in virtual space, hear what the characters hear, see what they see, and it will give you more insight into them and into me and into yourself than you ever dreamed possible.

Come on, let's go! Scrappy independent Iona is waiting for you. Its ceaseless wind sends sand drifts across the town square. Two pale moons creep up past the horizon. Can you hear music on the wind? The voices of friends? As you walk toward the Residential pods, glowing softly in the twilight, what do you feel? Safety or suspicion? What will you find here: delight or deception? Love, or loss?

Your support will help me bring this concept to life. If you're interested in being part of this journey, there are tier levels that should feel comfortable for everyone, and rewards that you will use and enjoy no matter whether your focus is reading, writing, geeking, or all three. I'm as excited about providing these rewards as I hope you will be about getting them. They range from the gift of community (via my Discord channel) to sneak peeks of completed chapters and backstory novelettes, to artwork based on the VR environments I create and live-action walk-throughs. And, of course, presale opportunities and discounts at  publication time.

Please check out my soon-to-be weekly YouTube vlog, Read Write Geek, and my Instagram feed.

If you have any questions about my project or the tier rewards, please shoot me a message and I'll be happy to help.
