About

Hi lovely readers! Welcome to my Patreon page!
Thank you for considering becoming a patron of my writing. For those of you who don't know me, I am a USA Today Bestselling Author of high fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal romance books. (Some your mamma may really disapprove of! Hmm, or maybe not! Perhaps she'll want to borrow them!)

My work can be found on Amazon and at the moment is free to read in Kindle Unlimited. If I post any books to the wider reading channels in the future I'll let my Patreon followers know first.

Why Patreon?
I'm fairly new to my author journey and although I do sell books to awesome readers via Amazon, and get paid a minimal fee for page reads through Kindle Unlimited, producing books is very expensive, especially when my distributor of choice takes their fee off the top. I’m hoping Patreon will cut down my reliance on book production and selling sites, and give me the opportunity to expand with audiobook production as well. 

History

I live in the UK and started writing four years ago. Currently, I have published 8 upper Ya high/romantic fantasy books and am publishing my adult PNR series in October 2020. I originally started writing after having twins. As they grew up and began to interact with me, we started to make up a story that we would add to every night at bedtime. Obviously, this got a little too long eventually, so I decided I would write it down. The Goddess and the Guardians changed a lot over the time it took to write and produce, and the final published version is a different beast to the fairy story I told my kids!

I still work full time. By background, I'm a qualified nurse and work as a resuscitation and clinical skills trainer, which means I work in education at a big NHS hospital, and also at the attached medical school. Writing, producing, and learning how to market my books is a challenge with the time I have available to me. I don't want to give up writing as I have so many stories fighting to break free of my imagination, but producing books is an expensive business, and I need to explore all revenue streams, hence this Patreon page.

I hope you will join me on my author journey.

What is your publishing shedule?
Currently, I am producing a book roughly 3-5 books a year. I'd absolutely love to produce more but as I work full-time too, I am limited on time. 
If you'd like to keep an eye on the progress for each book I am writing, I have a progress counter on my website https://www.karentomlinson.com for all my current WIP's.

What's in it for me?
As most of my books are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, this Patreon is a way for you to get my e-books even if you’re not an Amazon shopper (they will go out to my silver and above Patreon subscribers BEFORE they are enrolled in that exclusivity program, so that I am still adhering to Kindle Unlimited's Terms Of Service). This earns me more money to produce more books, perhaps even audiobooks. Depending on your chosen tier, I will keep my patrons informed of my upcoming releases, post part or full chapters, and post deleted scenes if there are any, before sending any information out to my newsletter subscribers. I’ll also be adding postcards and swag to tiers as time progresses. 


What if I only want your fantasy or only want your paranormal titles? Or only books from a particular series? You have a couple of options:
  1. Watch the schedule and see what's coming up and wait until a series you're interested in starts up (I'll make announcements to my newsletter subscribers now and then remind you of the Patreon option). You can subscribe and unsubscribe to my Patreon campaign whenever you want, or upgrade and downgrade the level at which you subscribe, depending on what's coming up. (Please be aware at least 2 months subscription to the required level will be needed for me to post out signed paperbacks)
  2. Skip Patreon and buy the books in the stores so you make sure you don't get stuck with ones you don't want (you can always support at the £3 level if you want to help out and be kept in the loop without receiving the books this way).


Thanks for reading and helping me write more books!
