The Write Supporter

Limited (3 of 3 remaining)
reward item
$30
per month
This tier is only available to the first 3 supporters who sign up! Doing so will grant you most of the benefits from the previous tiers (exclusive mug*, two signed copies of my books*, access to new fiction scenes and blogs I have written) as well as TWO NEW ITEMS (and a free sticker*). One of the exclusive features of this and the $40 tier is the formation of a writing group (comprised of five Patreon members and myself), meeting twice a month for a two hour video or audio meeting to discuss our fiction or ask for editing advice. You will also be able to send me 25,000 words of your fiction for complete content editing EVERY YEAR you continue to pay on this tier level. This includes proofreading corrections of obvious typos via track changes, comments on continuity issues, plot and character development advice, and an overall report on your manuscripts. (The 25,000 words can be one manuscript, or several short stories making up that total.) I have worked with many well-known authors who have told me my efforts on their manuscripts have helped their diamonds-in-the-rough shine the brightest, so your contribution will not only help keep me afloat while I try to fulfill my own dreams, but will give me the opportunity to offer you professional help with your manuscripts in my capacity as editor.

About

G'day and welcome to my patreon page, where I will love sharing with readers the fiction I am creating, offering interactive experiences for you to get to know me better and at some levels (depending on what tier you pick to support me on!), I will even offer my editorial services to help other writers!

I am an Australian multi-genre author, self-confessed geek, fossil collector, editor, and assistant publisher of Arc Manor, who moved to the United States where I live with my blue-eyed mini-Dachshund/Chihuahua named Bindi (which means “little girl” in several indigenous Australian dialects). Ever since I was young, my twin sister and I devoured science fiction and fantasy titles, often sharing our books to double our reading pool. That love blossomed into collecting signed first editions and centuries-old hardcovers of the classics, and hoarding vintage typewriters and chocolate in any form. Since my first short story sale to Clarkesworld, I have sold fiction to professional markets around the world, including Asimov’s and Analog, and I have been a finalist for the Australian Aurealis Award, the Spanish Premio Ignotus Award, and the Campbell Award for Best New Writer (now renamed the Astounding Award), as well as winning the Catalan Premi Ictineu Award twice.

I recently moved back to the ocean, making my home the popular tourist destination, Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, where my mermaid soul and writer heart feels most at peace. I'm currently writing a science fiction novel as well as a contemporary mainstream novel under my pseudonym, Petronella Glover, that I will set at my new beachfront locale. Starting out again in such a beautiful place, with family so far away, and with a mountain of medical bills from the treatment that saved my life in 2017 and 2019, is both daunting and exciting...and much more expensive than I first envisioned.

If you help me keep the lights on and the pantry full, I will love sharing with you chapters of my novels (depending on the tier you support me on!) as well as short stories and exclusive content along my progress towards publication. You can even become a character in one of my novels!

As the assistant publisher and novel editor of Arc Manor's science fiction and fantasy imprint, Phoenix Pick, anthology editor for the Caezik Romance line, the former co-editor of romance magazine, Heart’s Kiss, and the current editor of Galaxy’s Edge magazine, I am excited to offer tiers where I can help other patreon writers with their own fiction. They say the best part of the writing community is its "pay it forward" attitude and its willingness to push boundaries with social commentary, but really, it's having a second family that just "gets" you--that is there for you when you need it. I am in a position now, through experience, to help new writers. Just as those of you who choose to support me on here will help me in return. And for that, I will be eternally grateful.

Welcome to the world inside my head! I hope you will come and stay awhile.


Goals
$9 of $1,000 per month
In thanks for helping me make this monetary goal, I would love to pay it forward, so to speak. When I reach $1000 per month, I will workshop one VOLUNTEERED short story or novel chapter a month (up to 7500 words) and discuss the reason for the edits in a monthly zoom session with my Patreon supporters of ALL tiers. The selection of the next manuscript will be based on the order people sign up to my Patreon account. So if you were the first to sign up to any tier, you will be the first one asked if you want a short story or chapter workshopped as soon as I reach $1000 a month from my Patreon supporters. If you were the fifth to sign up, you will be asked after the first four Patreon supporters were given the opportunity to submit a piece of fiction. In the event there is no short story or chapter available to workshop, I will still answer questions about the publishing industry in the zoom session--whether it is about writing or editing or discussing the process of getting published.

Exclusive Merchandise given to Patreon Supporters committing to the $20 tier and higher!
