Thank you, dear Tardigrade!

Welcome to my private Patreon posts. Get early news about stories, events, and anything that’s going on for me, and be part of our conversation about writing, art, animals, and life. We look forward to getting to know you better!

Dear Cicadas, 

I hope this level suits those of you who aren’t quite able to make the jump to $10!

 

  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.
Mantis Level
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
Make your mark.
  • Mantises (and all tiers above this) will have your names listed in the acknowledgments for my next book, when it’s published.
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.


Fox Level
$25 or more per month 1 patron
Take (a) note.
  • Foxes (and higher tiers) receive a postcard in the month they first enter these tiers. My handwriting is reasonably neat, so you should even be able to read it.
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.
Cephalopodish Level
$50 or more per month 1 patron
No spoilers!
  • Cephalopods (and higher tiers) receive a signed copy of the ARC for my next book, when it’s published. 
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.
Cat Level
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
Sneak a look...
  • Cats (and higher tiers) can peek in while I write/edit. You will receive a private link to a live google doc for a story I am working on. Watch for an update in the public posts, then follow the link to watch my process in action.
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.
Apartment-Dwelling Beast Level
$250 or more per month 0 of 3 patrons
What do you think?

Do you ever think, “I wish there were more tardigrade fics,” or, “Why doesn’t anything ever include the phrase, ‘Hurrah! The herring fleet!’?” 


  • Each month you are a Beast (or higher tier), you can (if you like) suggest a 250 topic. My usual 250 rules apply: it could end up anywhere, be about anything. It might lead to a longer piece, it might not.  
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.


Gug Level
$500 or more per month 0 of 2 patrons
Gug with a Keyboard!

Some of you are writers, and for you, my dear literary Gugs, I have a special offer. 


  • Twice per calendar year, I'll send Gugs (and higher tiers) a personal critique of one short story (up to 5000 words), including line edits and a written critique of a page or more.
  • Access to any rewards unlocked at our current phase.
The Big One
$1,000 or more per month 0 of 2 patrons
WOWWWWW

It’s incredible to think someone might feel like this about my work. Your donation at this level is an amazing affirmation of what I’ve done thus far and what I want to do in the future.


You have your own reasons for supporting my writing, so the rewards will be everything from other tiers, plus something specific to who you are. In similar situations, I have written a private children’s story, created fiction from prompts, offered betas/drafts of stories, chatted on the phone, shared plans for the future, or visited when I’m in town.
