"Sparkles make everything better!" as my son used to say.

Joining me here casts sparkle all around. Thank you! 

Posts will be a serialized novel called Drowning Karma. And when that's done (and it's a long novel, so it won't be done any time soon), another story will follow. Other posts will include poems, backstory, character interviews, polls, videos, and whatever other gems are found on the journey.

Definitely a hearty thank you and magical blessings.

Magic!

Other Magical Patrons will open their mailbox to find tiny art or a handmade zine. (By tiny, I mean it fits into an envelop for easy travel.) Also, occasionally a typed note (because why else have a typewriter). 

Definitely a hearty thank you and magical blessings.

Casting spells!

So, posts will be a serialized novel called Drowning Karma. And when that's done (and it's a long novel, so it won't be done any time soon), another story will follow. Other posts will include poems, backstory, character interviews, polls, videos and whatever other gems are found on the journey.

Every other month, spell casting patrons will open their mailbox to find tiny one-of-kind art, a wonderful typed letter, or a handmade zine. Each is something that will fit in an envelop and add a spark to your day.

Definitely a hearty thank you and magical blessings.

About Marta Pelrine-Bacon

“I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”

― Agent Dale Cooper


Welcome! And thank you for joining me. I'm an author and artist living in Texas and working toward a more creative world. As a kid I couldn't decide between writing or making art, so I didn't decide. I do both.

No work is complete with someone to share it with; hence, here I am. I'll be sharing an unpublished novel, scene by scene, and I'll be sharing actual art. I've been in love with the concepts of zines since my early teens, and I'm excited to send new efforts to you. So you won't just receive stories in the digital realm, but you'll received tiny art and story fragments (quotes and I don't know what--we'll see where the journey takes us) in your real life mail box. I also want you to pursue your own creative endeavors, and so for some folks I'll help you craft your story, giving you thoughts, notes, and encouragement.  

So, WHY PATREON? you might ask. Indeed. My ultimate goal is to make a living writing and making things. The landscape of the publishing world has changed radically since I had my first author dreams. Writers need to find new ways to reach readers, and all this takes time. There's time for creating and then time for querying, marketing, building platforms. In the meantime, I need to pay the kid's college tuition and the vet bills and the keep-the-house-from-falling-down repairs. All money earned whether from selling my work and from patrons here really goes to giving me time. I'll use that time to write, make, find an agent, and build my audience. 

Right now, my patron number is so small, I can make things to send individuals without much fuss. Once I reach 20 patrons, I will have to rethink the gives, but for the first 20, I promise to keep the same benefits for as long as you're here. Thank you! And let's be on our way!
