Mary, Mary, quite contrary. Penned a tale that's really scary!

I'm Mary Rajotte, an author from Toronto, Canada. I write horror, suspense and thrillers, and I want to share them with you! 
WHY PATREON?

I've been living the freelance life since 2004, which means sporadic work and the anxiety of the constant search for that next project that will help me pay my bills. This also means that in taking freelance projects, my own work gets delayed and pushed aside. 

I also have a number of health issues and suffered a back injury a couple of years ago that requires monthly treatments. Being able to write full-time allows me to look after my health (which sometimes includes taking off days for pain management), while continuing to do what I love

THIS CAMPAIGN
I originally started this Patreon a few years ago, sharing behind-the-scenes info on the stories I write and the inspiration behind them. I put this page on ice for a while but I recently relaunched it when I realized how much I missed connecting with people on Patreon. I also wanted a way to reach readers more often than the months or years between traditional publishing dates. And to get all those stories completed that have been sitting on my computer.

With 3 different book series in various stages of completion, countless stories in revision, and a Scream-inspired serial already started...this Patreon campaign will help me to focus solely on my own work and get it to you, readers and lovers of all the cool things I like to explore, namely...mythology, superstition, shadows & the people, places and things that haunt.

WHAT MY FANS ARE SAYING
"Mary Rajotte's Patreon offers all sorts of goodies, from twisted stories (which are awesome) to her 'Altered Words' segments. She also isn't shy about pulling back the curtain and revealing the inspiration behind these dark creations. If you're a horror fan, I recommend putting down a couple of bucks and supporting Mary's work."

MY GOALS FOR 2019

I am dedicating 2019 to upping my creative game. I'm taking classes and workshops to tell better, creepier, more compelling stories. I have also just signed up for a novel writing class that will run the entire year of 2020 - but I still need to pay for it! :)

Having income from this Patreon campaign would mean I won't have to split my focus between my stories and someone else's. I won't have to stress about taking on ghostwriting another novel for someone else. I can write more, reach more readers, and live my dream. 


WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FUNDS AFTER YOU DONATE?
The funds I earn on Patreon will be used for professional editing, interior layout & design of paperbacks/eBooks and cover artists.

Stories you can gain access to in 2019:
  • a NEW horror serial
  • MONTHLY original flash fiction
  • new short stories
DO IT FOR THE STORIES! DON'T LET THEM DIE!

So, there you have it. My creepy stories & nightmarish tales are waiting. What do you have to lose? A little sleep? You can sleep when you're...well, you know.
