Julie Weigley is creating fiction

I write novels composed of interwoven stories. A major theme throughout is the persistence of art and love. A second theme is the universality of human rights and the power of individual desire. My first book, Beautiful but Unlikely, appeared serially in my former blog of the same name. Currently, I’m more than halfway through completing the second, The Water Is So Wide, while a third is just beginning to take shape in my mind, tentatively entitled The World of Murkiness and Glass. Writing is my foundation and refuge—even if I hit rock bottom, it’s there, available to me as long as I have the will to keep creating.

Welcome, everyone, to my Patreon page. I’m offering three tiers to start with: tier 1 at $1 a month provides exclusive access to new chapters and longer excerpts of The Water Is So Wide. A second tier at $3 offers these chapters as well as a weekly chapter (each Friday) of my earlier work, Beautiful but Unlikely. The final tier at $5 offers tier 1 and 2 benefits as well as a monthly email from me detailing the musical or artistic inspiration behind a specific scene/vignette.

I’m always struck by the generosity of my readers, and I want to say “thank you!” to my patrons every day. Your support allows for less time worrying about bills and more time for letting the mind wander where it will; it allows for longer and greater concentrated time for writing. Your help will also provide the seed money for a longtime dream of mind: to produce handbound books of my stories with artwork included, this series of collections to be called Spirit Level Tales. They will be produced in small batches as demand warrants. I love old books and their cover art. I love holding them; they are small gifts in and of themselves before you open them and fan the pages and delve in. So, happy reading, and thanks again for helping to turn pie in the sky into my book in your hand.

Goals
2 of 50 patrons
My goal is twofold: to continue to write, and to ultimately publish my writing in a solid, interesting, and beautiful form that you can hold in your hand. To do that, I would like to attract 50 patrons to start, and then strive to build up to 200 readers. That could provide the seed money to get production of Spirit Level Tales off the ground: trademark and intellectual property attorney fees, permission expenses, artist commissions, consulting fees, production, shipping. I will gladly work with what is contributed to take it as far as I can as reasonably fast as I can.

The generosity and enthusiasm of patrons will also assure me that an audience for this type of material does exist, particularly subscriptions to my Inspirational Level 3 tier.

First Goal: Launch Patreon page, attract 50 patrons, at least 5 at tier 3 level. (Earn enough to trademark logo for Spirit Level Tales.)
