Lynn O'Connacht is creating SFF fiction and geeky content

patrons

Hello! I'm Lynn O'Connacht. Welcome!
I’m a queer indie SFF author and blogger working on creating a variety of entertaining, positive and welcoming content for everyone to enjoy. Please take a look around and see if anything appeals to you. <3

  • Fiction-wise: I specialise in small-scale, personal stakes and intimate narratives. Occasionally I’ll run webserials.
  • Nonfiction-wise: I dabble. I talk about books, tv shows, games, etc. I talk about asexual representation. I livetweet my reactions to shows. I talk about indie publishing (usually the nitty-gritty of how to make your own files). I geek out about grammar. Like I said, I dabble. ^_^
  • I’m also slowly dipping into voice work by recording my own stories and sometimes even a song!
  • You can find samples of my work in this round-up. Have fun!
Sometimes mental health and/or offline life throws my working schedule out of whack, though. I do my best to keep you all updated of any changes, obviously. I just... find it hard sometimes to talk about what's going on with me. :(

Current Lynn Reacts Schedule (December):

  • Mondays: Lost Song (4 eps)
  • Tuesdays: prerecorded Let's Play: Thief Gold
  • Wednesdays: Regal Academy (6 eps)
  • Thursdays: prerecorded Let's Play: Thief Gold
  • Fridays: REST
  • Saturdays: prerecorded Let's Play: Thief Gold
  • Sundays: REST
Mon-Thu: Sometime in the afternoon or evening (GMT).
Collected and posted for non-Discord members later that week.

Why Patreon?

Patreon lets me give back to the fans who choose to support me! (Thank you so much!) Take a look at the rewards and see if there’s anything you’d like.

Where does your money go?

You're mostly helping me pay for my monthly bills (such as the costs of running leoconnacht.com) and stay alive, so that I can continue creating and sharing positive and inclusive content online.

If you’d like to support me but can’t afford a monthly payment (I’m so with you on that!), just engaging with my (public) content is support! <3 If you want to do more, you can leave comments, share my posts, tell your friends about what I'm doing, like my content, follow me, etc.

Your support means the world to me. Thank you so much! ^_^

Love,
Lynn
