Kiya Nicoll is creating τέχνη (Téchne): "craft", "art", "cunning", "means to an end"

Hi there!  My name is Kiya and I do stuff.

Amongst my stuff:

  • fantastic fiction (long and short forms, mostly fantasy, some science fiction, some other things in that neighborhood)
  • poetry (political and spiritual)
  • pagan theology (primarily Kemetic, that being Egyptian historical religion)
  • sculpture
  • pottery
  • chalk pastel drawings
  • assemblage art (that is the fancy way of saying "collage")
  • beadwork
  • tinkering with learning to program computer games / visual novels
  • with luck, a little music

If you would like to support me in my stuff, thank you.

You can find my personal religious website at Suns in Her Branches, my author website at Kiya Nicoll, and my Kemetic research blog at Peaceful Awakenings, for more of the stuff that you might consider supporting.

(Cover image is currently the Black Pillar dust spire in the Eagle Nebula (M16 / NGC6611), located in the constellation Serpens.  Any implications about the nebulous, obscured, and star-creating nature of my stuff are, if not precisely intentional, at least not wrong.  Bird and snake dualisms are of course always a bonus.)
Tiers
Upon the Horizon
$1 or more per month 1 patron
Thank you for your support!  This will give access to patron-only posts, like posts documenting changes in works in progress.
Random Cool Shit
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
So one of the things that happens when doing research for various projects is one comes across Random Cool Shit.  This pledge level is for those who love Random Cool Shit and related trivia as much as I do.  When I find some Random Cool Shit, I will post it to this backer level!
Mythological Drabbles
$3 or more per month 1 patron
As I tinker around with writing bits of mythology and related stories, I will post them here.  They may get posted elsewhere eventually, but not until at least a month of exclusive access.
Irregular Sonnetry
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
Every so often a body just has to commit a sonnet.  At this pledge level, you can see sonnets exclusively, though some of them will eventually be published on my blog and I expect I will collect them into books eventually.

May also contain occasional fits of non-sonnet poetry.
Playtesters Welcome
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
So I said I was doing some game programming, and if you want to see that thing this is the level to pick.  Warning:  I do not currently have a game to share versions of, I am still figuring out how to make plot do on Amber Eyes, so this reward is functionally equivalent to Irregular Sonnet for the indefinite future.  Description will change when the circumstances allow, but I wanted to placeholder it.
Prayer Beads and Devotional Necklaces
$20 or more per month 0 of 10 patrons
Every six months, a patron on this tier has the option of working with me to design a devotional or magical necklace for the purpose of your choice.  The first piece built according to that design is yours, and a new six month wait period starts from there.
Goals
$13 of $25 per month
Will let me dedicate an hour a month to ongoing research, thus guaranteeing that I get an interesting research passage quoted on the Kemetic research blog at Peaceful Awakenings.
