About J A Browne, Author

Hello from Yorkshire!
It's great to be here on Patreon. I have heard so many positive things about this platform in how it helps creatives, freelancers etc., so I decided I would give it a shot. 

I remember being a young girl and hearing about "the ozone layer" and how because we used CFC's in products we were hurting our planet. I made a conscious decision to ensure all the products my Mum picked up whilst shopping didn't have CFC's in them as the news went global. It feels like I have always cared about the planet and animals, creatures of all sorts for as long as I can remember, but it was twelve years ago as I began writing The Earth Chronicles that I really look things more seriously because I wanted to be a voice for the planet.

Having tried for years and years to get a traditional publishing deal for Hannah and the Hollow Tree - Book One in the series, about three years ago I decided to do this all for myself and become an independent author. So I researched how to. I listened to so many creative podcasts - two in particular - which helped me understand how to go indie, finish the book and get it out there to potential readers, set up websites, find an editor, work with illustrators all whilst being a primary school teacher and studying an MA in Creative Writing at LTU. My job funded my creative passion, but I was desperate to write full time and get into other schools and share my messages, empowering young people to feel they can do something about the climate crisis, sparking their passions for reading and telling stories.

Finally, after what has been one of the most tumultuous and heart-breaking years for myself and my family, I made a huge decision to quit my job, work part-time for a while and pursue the dream of writing full time. Time is precious.

One thing I did achieve this year was finishing and launching Gaia's Revenge - Book Two in October exactly one year to the day of launching Hannah

What's my goal?
I am now pivoting out of classroom teaching which has given me some more time to write and concentrate on reaching readers, but to enable this long term takes financial support whilst I build my author brand and, most importantly, write Hollow's End - Book Three in the first trilogy under The Earth Chronicles umbrella. I have already published a short novella which is downloadable if you subscribe to my mailing list, but I would love the time to write more and produce more stories and secret chapters, novellas and then begin the second trilogy around my new characters Tristan and Linney which will be a YA Lit-dystopian fantasy still within The Earth Chronicles universe. 

I also have started creating guided reading resources to go along with my books, have launched the first phase of school-based creative writing workshops as well as Teacher Tricks - little guides that parents can dip into to help their children with reading, writing and learning. 

So, I guess what it boils down to is TIME

If you are able to help me sustain my writing time, what you'll get in return is:

  • Access to all digital content posted here, for example first look at new content, extracts from new novels, illustrations, novellas and other digital media. (BIRCH - $2.00 p/m)
  • All of the above, plus - Book Three - Hollow's End - at no extra charge (ASH - if your support pledge is £5.00 p/m) including any "author swag" freebies running at the time, e.g. bookmarks, stickers, postcards.
  • All of the above, plus - Priority VIP access/reservations for any launch events*, author events* - these will be U.K. based  (OAK - if your support pledge is £8.00 p/m
  • Finally, should we ever meet - a MASSIVE HUG! - Seriously, all support is appreciated.

discounts may be available upon external event entry fees.
