About

Welcome to the Green Cloak! My name is Kristen Britain and I am the bestselling author of the Green Rider series of fantasy novels. I have decided to open a Patreon page because... Well, not only is it a new and fun way for me to interact with readers, but as a self-employed person who writes epic-length novels slooowly, the finances become a bit sparse. The last two or three years have been rough with various Big Life Changes, including a cross country move and the death of a parent, plus all the other stuff. It has slowed my progress on the seventh Green Rider book, Winterlight and kind of put me in a bind to pay certain bills. I am hoping, with your patronage, to better afford individual health insurance. In Maine, where the population is small and elderly, the insurance premiums are ridiculous. Reasonable gold level plan premiums in New Mexico, where I lived for several years, became unaffordable in Maine, as much as four times as expensive, so for the last year I’ve been on a bottom of the barrel, virtually useless bronze level plan that costs rather more than my gold level plan in NM did. I don’t expect improvement for 2020. I am off certain meds, and taking half doses because even with coupons they’re too expensive. Throw in unexpected dental bills and eeeek! All I want to do is finish my book—and it IS getting close, but it’s hard to work on when I’m worrying about how I am going to pay for stuff. Even if I finished drafting today, it would take time to polish and revise before sending it to my editor, and once it’s in her hands, a whole other process begins, which means waiting more months for on-delivery moola. So, those are my reasons for being here and giving Patreon a try, and in return, I hope to offer you some low-key entertainment and a place to chat about all things Green Riderly.
