Hail and well met! My name is Maegan A. "Maverick-Werewolf" Stebbins.

Introduction
I have many passions. Greatest among them are creating characters and stories, studying folklore, collecting plushies, anything to do with Chris Redfield (what?), and werewolves. I now have a Master of Arts degree in English, specializing in werewolf studies and broader monster folklore.

But my ultimate dream remains the same: I want to tell the stories that endlessly fill my head and keep my imagination in overdrive. I want to entertain others. I want to entertain you.

Above all else, I'm a writer. I create novels, novellas, and short story collections, all currently self-published or free online. I also write academically on werewolves, video game studies, and folklore, and I maintain weekly werewolf folklore fact posts on my Tumblr and have a cozy little Discord server for discussing werewolves, Wulfgard, my creations, and more. On the side, I host roleplaying campaigns online, create custom LEGO minifigures, dabble in a bit of artwork, make the occasional video game mod, and other hobbies. And that might just be me in a nutshell.


Why I'm Here
I'm hoping to find a supportive audience for my creations and to reach a point at which I can make my living off my creative work, or at least make enough to justify the time I would like to dedicate to it. My situation as of late has left me with very little time and less inspiration, and I have fallen far behind in my personal goals and have lost a sense of accomplishment. If nothing changes, I fear I will lose myself and remain trapped in a void, unable to pursue my personal creative works.

I do not want to sacrifice my happiness and personal accomplishment again. I want my creative works to be my main source of income (or at least offer me any income at all), but right now, that looks impossible, in part because I can't dedicate the time I need to get them published. It's a tall order.



What You Get
I am planning to use this Patreon as, first and foremost, a way to connect with (and reward) my supporters. I would love to have a platform through which I can directly communicate with those interested in my work. For all your belief in me and your support of my creative efforts, I'll do my best to give you back as much as I can...

The rewards include:
  • Monthly Short Stories - Every month, I will write a brand new short story and post it exclusively for my patrons. Only much later will these short stories be collected and self-published for purchase. I will have different themes (and sometimes settings) for the monthly short stories based on the collection I'm currently writing.
  • Polls - Polls in which you can help me decide what project(s) to focus on, the topic of the next monthly short story, the subject of the next Random Werewolf Fact, what my next major folklore research project should be, and more.
  • Upcoming Novel Previews - You will get early access to my rough drafts and working drafts of my upcoming novels as I write each chapter.
  • Send Me Writing Prompts - Every month, you can send me a new writing prompt of your creation - or choice, if you find one you like somewhere else - and I'll write you a scene to fill that prompt. Can be specific or vague, like if you want a prompt about certain characters. I will write anything set in Wulfgard, Nova Refuge, or any of my other original settings, and about any characters of your choosing. You can even go wild and ask me to put characters in settings they aren't ordinarily in. The choice is yours! (Note that the prompt fills I write will be approximately 1k words in length or less, and I reserve the right to refuse a prompt fill and ask for a different one for whatever reason, such as subject discomfort)
  • Discord Perks - I have a little Discord called the Werewolf Haunt, as previously mentioned (and with an invite link). Patrons will get special perks on this discord, such as pretty role colors and access to exclusive channels.
  • Writing Journal - A series of posts I make here on the Patreon including discussions on my writing process, ideas, behind the scenes look at my characters and their development, and more.
  • Special Thanks - Credit in a section of all my future self-published works.
  • Project Previews - See previews of my other upcoming side-projects, such as artwork, a tabletop gaming system, and custom LEGO minifigures.
  • Wulfgard Store Coupon - A monthly 10% off coupon for the official Wulfgard store.
And, in the future, hopefully even more!

There's a lot of work to be done, and I hope you'll join me for the journey. I'd love to have you as a member of my wolf pack!

Thank you for your support,
- Maverick-Werewolf
