Lyn Gala is creating Romance stories with an unexpected edge

I started writing fanfic, usually gay romance, in the nineties when Buffy the Vampire Slayer caught my eye.  I came to the series after the show ended, which is normal for me.  The Sentinel, Stargate, Buffy--I start writing when the show stops letting me mainline my drug of choice.

I switched over to professional writing with Urban Shaman.  I wanted to tell stories outside my fandom without horribly mangling the characterization of my favorite characters. I never thought of myself as a real author until my fellow fans followed me into professional writing.  I have always appreciated how much support I've gotten from my fans.  But some projects have never made it off my computer because there isn't a market for them.  They're too racy--too edgy--or they just don't make money.  This is an experiment is seeing whether the ultra-supportive fans in the gay romance audience will follow me into a new adventure.
Tiers
Zen
$1 or more per month
 Thank you for your support.  I'll keep you updated with what projects I'm working on with posts once or twice a month. 
Bookworm
$3 or more per month
 Thank you for your support.  I want you to get your money worth, so you will get at least 10,000 words every month--probably more.  You may get chapters from Liam and Ondry's next adventure or a naughty, naughty, edgyplay with my favorite kink.  Hint: bridles and bits might be involved.  I will try to offer both if my schedule allows.  
Beloved
$10 or more per month
 Thank you so much for your support. You will get everything from the lower tiers plus you will get a heartfelt "thank you" in the dedication portion of any upcoming books and exclusive access to upcoming books (although in ARC or rough draft form).  Please feel free to point out errors.


Benefactor
$20 or more per month
Honestly, this tier will have all the same rewards as a $10 subscription with one exception. When I do a book drawing, I will draw one winner from the Beloved tier and one from the Benefactor tier. So in the day-to-day access to stories, there's no difference. But if there is a month when you want to throw a little extra in the tip jar, you can.

 Thank you so much for your support. You will get everything from the lower tiers plus you will have a chance to get artistic with me.  We can work together to create a character. I get particularly excited to work on characters that represent those who haven't been seen enough in the arts.  Your character may appear in a short story posted here or in one of my professional novels--that is up to the muse. I will only work with one person at a time.
Goals
71% complete
At this point, I am willing to make a weekly commitment of at least 4000 words, so that would mean new story every week and at least 16,000 words per month. At this point, I will probably change the minimum subscription to $5 due to the increased content, but this is far, far into the future.
