Hi! My name is Lyssa Chiavari and I write science fiction and fantasy for young adults. I love creating worlds that are both fantastical and familiar, and above all inclusive. I'm also an indie author, a member of two co-op publishers (Snowy Wings Publishing and The Kraken Collective), and a somewhat-obsessive studier of the publishing industry, and I love sharing the things I've learned with other authors in the hopes of making publishing a more accessible and diverse industry. I'd love to share my stories and my insider knowledge with you as a patron!

If you haven't read any of my work yet, you can see my book list here on my website. I also have a few free short stories on InstaFreebie that you can check out to see if you like my writing! If you're an author interested in checking out my Patreon-exclusive Indie Insider podcast, you can check out some of the blog posts with publishing tips I've written in the past.

How I Use Patreon
I tend to use Patreon to share my thoughts and interesting things I come across as I stumble upon them. My Patreon is pay-per-creation, and I tend to only charge in months where I have the time to write and post a short story (generally six to eight times a year). That means that most of the behind-the-scenes content I share is free, and much of the Indie Insider content is free as well—in unpaid months, I may not do a podcast, but I always at least do a blog post with the month's news if I'm unable to record it. I think of Patreon as more of a tip jar than a primary source of income, which lets me treat it as a fun, low-pressure place to connect with readers. :-) For readers interested in tipping more frequently than I charge on Patreon (this seems weird to me but more than one person has asked about it), you can also visit me on Ko-Fi!

Thank you so much for your support! I truly appreciate it.
Tiers
Sneak Peek
$1 or more per creation
Every month, I will give you a sneak peek at my current WIP—be it an excerpt from a scene I wrote during the past month, or some other kind of special behind-the-scenes look at the book or story I'm working on.
Short Story
$3 or more per creation
You get access to the WIP sneak peeks plus you can read some of my never-before-published short fiction. Some of these are Patreon exclusives; others are upcoming stories that you'll get to see months before other readers. Supporters at this tier and above also receive a special art card of Nadin from the Iamos Trilogy, available only to patrons!
Indie Insider
$5 or more per creation
In addition to the WIP sneak peeks, the short stories, and the postcard, you get access to the Indie Insider, a monthly podcast and blog series all about the publishing industry, with a special focus on topics of interest to indie authors and publishers.
