Laura Vincent is creating recipes and writing, both of which are like, really good

As you know I've been writing amazing blog posts about food and my life on hungryandfrozen.com for eleven whole years now. Hitherto, that was just fine! But now, things are about to get extremely exciting. 

In 2019 I am going to WRITE. I'm consumed by ideas and self-belief in equal measure in a way that I honestly haven't known since I wrote my last cookbook in 2012. 

And so, I'm leaving my job as a round-the-clock bartender to work on creating the following: 

  • A cookbook about food you can cook when you're too depressed or anxious to cook (or at least read it under the covers and feel less alone) 
  • A cookbook called "Everything I've Ever Eaten" which is about everything I've ever eaten
  • A collection of funny, bittersweet, strange and uneasy poems, vignettes, and short stories roughly based on my experiences as a starry-eyed outsider who thinks their life deserves to be written about in the form of poems, vignettes, and short stories
  • An ensemble cast novel about being a bartender in Wellington that, to be massively reductive but to get the point across quickly, is kind of like Dazed and Confused meets Kitchen Confidential. 
As well as continuing to write for hungryandfrozen and my Frasier food blog.

Your support will directly enable these ideas to become real. 

Through the various tiers - levels of support - you will unlock exclusive content and rewards. It could be samples of prose or recipes, it could be a video of me reading a poem, it could be something completely new that I'm working on, or something random just for fun, it could be something that you have personally requested or your name acknowledged in the finished, published product. 

By becoming a Patron, you get insider access to this admittedly madcap but highly thrilling scheme right from the start. It's going to be amazing and you're going to be part of it. 
Tiers
1: Hungry and Frozen
$2 or more per month

This is a simple monthly payment of $2, named after me because it's the tier I myself would be most likely to be able to afford. 


This tier has a one-time reward where you will receive a thank you (by name, or preferred username) in the acknowledgements of the published edition of one of my books. 

2 Hungry 2 Frozen
$9 or more per month

This tier enables you access to the monthly exclusive content created for my Patrons, it could be a recipe or a sample from one of my projects or something different altogether: whatever it is, it's all yours. You will also have your name (or chosen pseudonym) thanked in the acknowledgements of my published work. 

3: The risk/reward sweet spot, frankly
$20 or more per month

With this tier you get the following: 

- access to the monthly exclusive Patron content

- your name (or chosen pseudonym) thanked in the acknowledgement of the books once they're published


PLUS


I will create something personalised for you (within reason) at your request: do you want a cocktail recipe inspired by your sweetheart? A poem? A spicy letter of resignation? Does your kid's book report need punching up? Do you want a playlist? 

4: Conspicuous Consumption is Good
$40 or more per month

You will receive the same rewards as the less expensive tier Patrons and NOTHING ELSE other than the blissful and delicious knowledge that you, personally, are rich enough to throw money at a perfect stranger to support their chosen field of creativity. Isn't that genuinely delicious? I can only imagine so, and hope to in fact confirm that feeling one day.
