Who Am I?
I am Daniel Loebl (I write under the pen name Daniel Rene Lumiere). I am the author of a novel, The Toronovsky Collection. I am working on my second novel, 5 years after finishing the first. I write mysteries that involve Art in some way or form. I am fascinated by painted and sculpted art. I believe that artists leave something encoded in their work that, when observed with an open mind, comes across to the viewer (and the reader of a story). I like to, somehow, evoke that mysterious connection between a work of art and the observers for it, and also explore the place of art in the minds of all sorts of people.

I’ve been writing stories, discarded novels, articles, opinion pieces, and strange bits of text since I was nine years old and in two different languages: Spanish and English. I like to surprise myself while writing and even though I plan my stories meticulously, I let them run free from the original plan to see where they take me. Quite often, I discover things I didn’t know existed when I started the work, and that is one of the most satisfying things about doing it.

I write stories that move quickly and that are not very long. I envision this second book as a continuation of the first, but not strictly in a linear manner. I’ve already started writing it and I am well along the work. I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and the city is a character (so far secondary) in the story I am working on these days.

Why Patreon?
The short answer is: Because I want to make a direct connection with my current and potential readers. I think that an author and his readers share a relationship and I would like to make that relationship concrete via Patreon. Setting up the Patreon and getting in touch with my readers is a way to enhance my writing day and enable me to find and meet fantastic new people through my ability to write, which is one of the things I always wanted to do with it in the first place. There are two concrete things that I do expect to use the money from Patreons to improve the lives of my fiction: 1. I will use the money raised from the Patreon to commission covers for the books once they are out, so they can be related to each other. 2. I will use the money raised in the Patreon to benefit from the work of additional people to help me advertise the books and get the word out. If this Patreon is successful, I will use it to help me finance living expenses for the third novel.

What do you get out of this Patreon?
In a word: fiction, and notes related to the work I am doing, plus the observations that I am making that may or may not eventually make it to the work itself. I will set up the Patreon so there are some posts that are free, some that are available for Patrons only, and some that are available for Patrons who contribute a certain amount. This last one will probably contain chapters from the book in progress as they come along. You may get a kick out of seeing the work in progress, and also see some of the things that do get removed in the writing process, even though they seem perfectly fine on their own.

I am committing myself to at least 12 posts per year, one a month (I do want to get the novel finished and set up for publication). I expect that there will be additional posts, because that is the nature of the work, but I cannot commit to a specific number right now.

Come join me in this adventure. I think it will be fun and rewarding and it should get us both out of our respective comfort zones. I cannot thank you enough for your help and consideration.
