I’m Juliet Lockwood, and I’ve come to Patreon to create poetry and fiction in some of my favorite genres including literary, speculative and LGBTQ.

Like something tapping on the inside of my skull, words, ideas and stories have always demanded I find a way to bring them into the world. As a child, I told them to myself or acted them out. As soon as I learned to write, they started coming into the world in that way. And in 1986, my father brought home a TRS-80 computer with the program Scripsit, and at the tender age of seven, I began pecking my stories out on a keyboard… and have never really stopped.

Today, I’m also a wife and mother with two sons in elementary school. Though years of momming, housekeeping and advertising contract work have heavily spent my time and energy, my muse refuses to quiet down.

Professional editors would say I’m meticulous about word choice, sentence construction, grammar and the elements of fiction such as world-building and proper handling of exposition. But readers in my audience experience my writing much the way a swimmer would slipping into the waters of personalized pool. The pumps, heaters and jets make the water the right temperature, clarity, etc., but the swimmer only knows the bliss of the sensation. The mechanics of my writing do the same thing working as invisible systems to perfect the experience for readers swimming in my words.

You can “test the waters” through my free posts (monthly for now), but if you want more, if you want to be the first to read longer excerpts of my novels in progress, if you want to tune into my weekly serials beginning in October, 2018 or enjoy my 30-days of writing challenge early next year, become my patron.

My patrons literally make possible the process of bringing the ideas that are still ever tapping at the inside of my skull into the world. I am so grateful for them, and I LOVE serving them. If you like what you read, I hope you’ll support me.

Access to my weekly, genre-rotating posts


My mid-week posts rotate between my four genres. However, through 9/30/19, three out of every four mid-week posts are reserved for my patrons only. Become my patron for $4 or more per month, and gain access to all my mid-week posts.


Since I rotate genres week to week, choosing this tier guarantees you at least one of your favorite genre pieces per month, whether that's poetry, literary, speculative or LGBTQ fiction.

Mid-Week, Genre-Rotating Posts & Weekly 2K+ Web Serials


Reading my mid-week posts and wanting more? Do you want to be among the first people on the planet to read some of my 15+ novels in progress and even have the opportunity to give me feedback? This tier is for you!


Most (though not all) of what I'll be posting in my weekly web serials (usually released on Mondays) will fall somewhere into the speculative genre (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, supernatural & dystopian). Some of these works-in-progress (WIPs) are longer short stories running 5 to 7 or 8K words. Others are novels for which I have only about 12K words written, while still others are well over 30K in their current incarnations.


Join this tier, and you may even have a say in which project I focus on completing next. And you'll be supporting me in my efforts to finally finish a first draft and start the long process of revision on the road to publishing. 


If you like my work, this really is the sweet-spot tier!

Goals
$27 of $200 per month
Increase Monthly Donation to my Sons' College/Future Savings - I would like to think that our society is slowly evolving out of its sexist inclinations. It used to be that men's pursuit their professional goals during parenthood was viewed much more favorably than women's. With this goal, I assert the tangible and gender-independent value to my children of pursuing my dreams NOW!
