Feeling Bookish?

$2
per month
The backbone of this channel! Every dollar keeps me in books, tea, and the requisite equipment to film, find time to edit, and then upload the channel for your viewing and literary pleasure! Supporting me also unlocks patreon-only posts where I share what's up behind-the-scenes and give previews of my reading.
  • Patron-only posts and messages
  • Behind-the-scenes content

Lit Dabbler

$5
per month
For those who want to give a little more than Feeling Bookish and a little less than Literature Lover 

Supporting me at this level ensures your name appears in the credits of every video.

Patrons who support me at this tier for more than four months also will receive a thank you letter in the mail written with a feather quill. 
  • Patron-only voting power
  • Patron-only posts and messages
  • Behind-the-scenes content
  • A Feather Quill-Written Thank You Letter

Literature Lover

$10
per month
For a little extra, on top of all the bits and bobs available to the Bookish tier, I'll occasionally give you voting power over what kinds of books I'm going to read next! I'll also give you a shout-out on social media and at the end of my videos. Supporting me at this level ensures your name appears in the credits of every video.

Patrons who support me at this tier for more than two months also will receive a thank you letter in the mail written with a feather quill.

About Gersande

Bienvenue and well met! My name is Gersande La Flèche (en: they/fr: iel), and I'm an aspiring writer who lives in Montréal (Tiohtiá:ke), Québec where I work as a consultant and an English—French translator.

I always have my nose in a book, and I'm here to share my bookish journey with you! I’ve been reading voraciously for a long time and love the craft of writing and story almost beyond what words can express!

I use this Patreon to sustainably support the filming of my reading journey so that I can share all the things that I'm reading with you through YouTube — including fiction, history, essays, poetry, YA, and more!

You can find me around the web:
* Bookish Vlog on YouTube
* Blog
* Blogue
* Instagram
* Twitter

(PS: I ran this Patreon between 2013-2016 to fund my explorations in altgames, interactive fiction, and thoughtful reflections on videogames and other experimental and traditional media through my blog and other avenues. Many of the old posts on this Patreon refer to those endeavours! While I loved my forays into making experimental games and writerly explorations, and am incredibly grateful to the altgame and queer communities that supported me at the time, as of 2021 this Patreon is focused only on books!)

Accountability & Paying It Forward
On top of supporting other Patreon accounts to support other artists and organizers, I also want to make sure that my work creating a vlog gives back to not only my own communities, but to the first communities who were here on the land I live on. Every December, I will calculate how much support I've received from my patrons throughout the year (including the one-time Ko-Fi donations) and donate 10% of that amount to mutual aid funds or grassroots organizations on the ground in Tiotiáh:ke/Montréal who do essential community work. I'll be transparent about this process with patrons and on my blog.
Goals
$19.71 of $150 per month
When I reach this monthly amount, I'll post a video to celebrate by answering a number of bookish, Tookish, and other questions from patrons and sourced from my comments sections or DMs on Instagram.
