Who Am I?

I am Leona R Wisoker. I write, panic, then absorb more coffee and keep writing anyway. I've been telling stories since I was a kid, but only seriously started making a career of it within the last fifteen years. So far, I've had a five book series published (Children of the Desert), put out a couple self-published novellas, and placed a handful of short stories with magazines and anthologies.

Why Am I Turning To Patreon?

Well... for one, I want to reassure my patiently waiting readers that I am, in fact, still out here kicking words into shape.

I also, however, appreciate externally sourced pushing. In order to make my Patreon subscribers happy, I will have to produce writing on a defined schedule. Subscribers can drop a comment here anytime, asking what I'm doing, nudging and nagging me a bit. I need that!

Subscribers will have to suffer through my first draft work, but that's okay! My first drafts are usually very lean and clean, or at least intriguingly messy.

Now for the part you probably (rightfully!) care about:

I Get A Kick In The Butt. What Do YOU Get?

I've kept everything limited, because I have to be able to deliver, and--look, I'm lazy, okay? I can invent excuses to get out of anything. So I'm starting with a low bar. Once I get at least five subscribers AT ANY MONETARY LEVEL, all subscribers at $10+ will receive a completed (still draft, mind you!) short story each month.

(I'm almost there, as of October 2018! If you want to see how utterly bonkers I get when trying to write an entire short story every single month, something I have never in my life managed to pull off before, talk a friend into signing up for my Patreon alongside you...)

There are other benefits on tap, of course, including free editing. Take a look at the tiers for details!

Folks who commit pledges for the entirety of 2018 will get a super special reward, regardless of your chosen support tier. I love writing. I really, really, love writing. And anyone who sticks with me is going to be rewarded, you hear me? I've always said I couldn't do this without my faithful readers and supporters. I mean it. You all rock.

Money is just a fabulous motivator. It helps with expenses, takes away stress and increases available energy. Putting money down, even at the one dollar tier, is a great big signal that you're not just being polite. And right now I really need that solid boost--and the explicit commitment I've hooked into it.

So, in short: Help Leona Write (More and More and More). :D
Tiers
A Bit of This, A Bit of That
$1 or more per month
You'll get access to the patron-only posts, which will largely consist of public updates. Now and again I'll post a Daily Dash, which is just a loosening-up exercise that you're welcome to steal and use as a prompt for yourself. I'm also going to start posting pictures of the amazing flora and fauna at my new house, at least one a month. With stories about them, sometimes. 
I Write For U!
$2 or more per month
I'm blatantly stealing and modifying this idea from several other writers, notably Cassandra Khaw (because she's amazing). Sign up for this tier, and you get a unique surreal line or two of prose. Use it as a prompt to start your own story, put it into your own artwork, paint it on the walls of your house if you want to be really avant garde. Or just do it to see how strange I can be. Up to you.
No Reward
$3 or more per month
No reward, just a big smile from me!
Hold On, On Hold....
$3 or more per month
I'll riffle through my dusty On Hold files and post a bit of something. You decide which tidbits you think are worth expanding on, and which ones should just go back in the drawer and be left there a while longer. 
No reward
$5 or more per month
This tier offers no reward besides knowing you made a writer smile. :)
Editing Advisor
$5 or more per month
For five dollars a month, you get to send me a short piece, under a thousand words, for a broad based edit. That means I'm giving an opinion on the overall flow, strength and weaknesses of the piece. No line editing!
Editing, Skype, and Random Freebies
$10 or more per month
For ten dollars a month, I'll do line edits on a piece of up to two thousand words; broad editing, as in previous tier, for up to four thousand words. You can Skype with me for half an hour -- please have specific questions ready and a reliable connection in place! Skype sessions must be scheduled no less than five business days in advance, and are available between the hours of noon and 9 pm. I'll also send you random freebies via email or, if you offer up your mailing address, via the mail.
I Write For U Redux
$15 or more per month
I will send you a loosely organized plot skeleton to flesh out. OR: I will help you write a synopsis of your current WIP. OR: I will help you with a cover letter, elevator pitch, introductory speech, or similar. Once a month benefit, on request. 
Goals
4 of 5 patrons
Once I get to five patrons, even if four of those are one dollar pledges, I will consider this campaign officially live. I'm going to keep putting content up regardless, and writing regardless, but the actual kick in the butt movement starts at five people.
