About Hope Zane

Why am I on Patreon?

For a long time, I didn't know what to do with Patreon, but I think I've finally figured it out. It turns out Patreon is actually a really great venue for someone like me—someone who's always writing but has a hard time staying motivated when there's no one on the other end of those words.

Writing books is lonely work, and for better or worse, long-form fiction is one of the things my heart loves best. I've got fic writer in my writing DNA, even though I've been pulled toward writing original fic lately. It doesn't look like that's going away any time soon, so I've decided to embrace it. I've started posting stories here on Patreon with the plan to post many more, treating it like my own personal, weird little archive for my original work. AO3 gives us a wonderful haven for creating fanworks—maybe this is my haven for making things that are brand new.

It turns out I create best in community. I like being in touch with readers. I like sharing what I'm working on as I go, and I'm finding that Patreon can offer that experience.

What can you expect as a patron?

You can expect to find chapters of works in progress here. As I write the books and stories I've got to tell, you'll get to see the process in real-time. You'll get to read book chapters before anyone else (well, except my two writing buds who cheer me on, help me fight off existential dread, and talk through sticky plot woes with me.) You'll also get to read short stories before they go up anywhere else. In some cases, you may even see Patreon-exclusive stories that are never published anywhere but here.

Here's a handy index of the stories I've posted on Patreon so far. A lot of them are public, if you're curious to see what I do.

I know you from your fanfic. Does this Patreon have anything to do with that?

Nope! I love writing fanfic and I do a lot of it in my spare time, but I have strong feelings about the nonmonetization of fanworks and prefer to keep the gift economy of that sphere intact. My fanworks will always be free and available on AO3. This Patreon is solely for my original work.


You can find me all over the internet as lovetincture. My social media presence is pretty firmly consolidated to Twitter, which is a good place to get in touch with me.
