Greetings!

My name is Krista Walsh, and I am a fantasy author. Since February 2014, I have published fourteen novels across the epic and urban fantasy genres. I love creating characters that burrow their way into readers' hearts and forging relationships that are tested by ever-increasing threats. I love throwing in spotlight-stealing secondary characters, heartwarming animal companions, and enough snark to give even the driest folks a chuckle. I've been writing since I was six years old and firmly believe that without words, I would have lost my grip on reality before I hit twenty.

I'm an independent author, which means I control every aspect of my imprint's business, from creative work to marketing to production. It also means I cover all costs from my own wallet. For me, this system is 100% worth it, but it means I need to be careful where I spend my money and how far I'm able to extend. This is unfortunate, because I really want to do more.

I want to offer audiobooks to my readers.

I want to create merch and swag that looks awesome and help bring my readers together.

I want to produce limited edition or new release hardcover editions that look incredible.

I want to help support and work with other indie artists to create artwork, jewelry, and who knows what else.

I want to sign books at conventions so I can chat with you guys in person.

These are just the start of the goals I have as far as my career goes, and they are goals I plan to achieve. The only question is when. Which is where you guys come in, to help make them a reality sooner rather than later. 

Your support would also mean a faster turnaround time for production, meaning more titles, more characters, and more worlds for you to enjoy, including:
  • the remaining two books of the Nayis Trilogy
  • the As-Yet-to-be-Titled urban fantasy trilogy
  • a stand-alone gothic fantasy
  • a new epic fantasy series
It would also allow me to:
  • host more giveaways and live/online events
  • read more craft books to improve my skills with each new publication
  • discover new ways to connect and engage with readers

Here's what's in it for you:

Your pledge gives you VIP behind-the scenes access into my brain. Monthly looks at my desk (possibly including photos of said desk, but what's seen cannot be unseen) and works in progress, blog posts about my inspiration, my process, my projects, character sketches, exclusive short stories, cat photos, videos from yours truly, copies of new releases in ebook or paperback form depending on tier, and more as this page evolves and you let me know what else you want to see.

So welcome, make yourself at home, and thank you for helping me build a community worth joining.
