Thank you for checking out my Patreon. I am an Amazon best-selling author of Gay Romance planning to expand into other letters of the LGBT spectrum as the muse and time permits. I've written seventeen books and plan to write many more. Stop by my website to check them out: https://letablake.com

I've created this account with many goals, including the hope of one day being able to give up my day job on the strength of my writing. Though I love my day job in many ways, it has become very precarious due to my employer's ill health. I'm concerned my position may even disappear entirely this year. I want to do everything in my power to replace any lost income from that job with writing-powered income. I believe in my writing and I believe in my readers. I have many exciting things to offer a dedicated reader, such as access to unfinished drafts, discussion and story collaboration, deleted scenes, and more.

In addition, after several releases that performed well critically but not financially, as detailed in a blog post on my website, it's become necessary to revise my release plans. I'm grateful to have the option of Patreon to allow us to achieve these goals together. Please check out the goals section to the left to find out some of the things we're working towards funding this year and next! 

In setting up this platform, I've chosen to do the "per month" option in order to free us up to have fun together and not depend solely on delivery of a particular book or audiobook. However, I want to make sure that every time you act as my patron you're getting something you value in return. Always feel free to change your pledge up and down as you see fit. Always feel free to message me with suggestions and requests.

Being a patron is not the only way that you will have access to my books. Every book I write will eventually be available for purchase on traditional platforms. This is a way to have early access, behind-the-scenes information, see rough drafts and get a closer view of what goes into creating the books you love. 

I want to thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart for your active support of me as a writer and a person. Together I hope we have a lot of fun and I hope to write a lot of enjoyable romance! Thank you for your help in doing that!

Also, since this is my first time attempting something like this, I'm grateful for any grace you extend as I get it all figured out and make adjustments. Thank you!
