There has never been anything more important to me than telling stories and making art, and the thing with telling stories and art is that they don't mean much if no one is around to see them or read them. With your help, I can not only get those stories finished faster and better, but I can spread them to a wider audience and give them real life. That's the dream. 

I currently have four separate novels trapped in my head and wanting to get out. As a patron, you can access my world-building sketches, read what I write before anyone else has a chance to see a word of it, and even get a chance to offer feedback and make those stories even better before they're released into the world. Since 2010 I've also been creating a serial webcomic called The Prophecy of the Circle, and here you can both watch me create it and read it earlier than anyone else. You can watch me make art. You can get a shot at directing what I sketch during the month. You can help me in so many ways.

And if I reach enough funding, the reward is that I can do even more. Money is time, and if I could spend all of my time on making new things for others to enjoy, you absolutely bet that I would. You can make it happen, and, to play off an old and obnoxious but true adage, most of it costs less than a fancy drink from Starbucks. At its most elaborate, all this costs is about equivalent to two really fancy drinks from Starbucks! One for you and one for a friend. 

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy what you see.

Bonus Materials Note! I also often appear on my boyfriend Tim's Patreon page where he creates cosplay costumes and props for the both of us.
Tiers
First Dibs
$1 or more per month 2 patrons
Early Access Tier! New Prophecy of the Circle pages are posted here on the weekend prior to when the public gets to see them. You get to know the secrets before anyone else does. ;D

At this tier, I'll also happily dole out discount codes for newly minted merchandise on the likes of Redbubble, offer first dibs at much cheaper prices of new handmade things for Storenvy, and surprise you with occasional digitally crafted gifts like desktop wallpapers.

This is also the tier where I'll occassionally open slots for exclusively priced mini commissions: digital sketches for $25 and custom critter designs for $50 (a significant savings over my usual rates!).
A Look Inside My Head
$2 or more per month 4 patrons
There are considerably fewer brains involved in this one than one might expect...

You get everything in the $1 Tier, plus:

At this tier you get to see behind-the-scenes materials for Prophecy of the Circle like process sketches, inks, and what the pages look like without all of those word bubbles on them. Some are exclusive and will not appear elsewhere. Some are early access.

You also get doodles: exclusive warm-up sketches that I do before drawing comics or larger projects and the things I scribble onto post-it-notes when I'm bored. Some of these are also exclusive and will not appear elsewhere. Some are early access.
Watch Me Work
$3 or more per month 2 patrons
You get everything in the $1 and $2 tiers plus you get to watch me draw just about anything and everything that will eventually make it to the public sphere. Here is where I post pencils, inked pieces, and progress shots of all of my art as I work on it and, once I figure out how to make them, there will also be exclusive time-lapse watch-me-draw videos.  This is also where livestream access will be granted for when I do digital artwork. Currently that's not very often, but it'll change.
World Building
$5 or more per month 10 patrons
Everything from the $1-$3 tiers , plus


You get to see into the world building process for all of my various stories. Here is where I post character designs, environment studies, weapons, cultural elements and the like. There might be story drabbles and Meet-The-Character write-ups as I sort things out before and during writing novels, etc.


As always, I'd aim to keep major spoilers out of this but you'd get a pretty good view of story premises and a lot of material to speculate from before anyone else. This is almost guaranteed to be exclusive outside of artbooks (and there's no guarantee that I'll ever be able to afford to publish one of those, so it might be truly exclusive).


At this level there will also be a monthly Suggest-A-Sketch post at the end of every month, where you guys have the opportunity to give me ideas to draw from for both this tier and for the $3 tier for the following month. There's no guarantee that I can sketch all of what's suggested, but I'd sure as heck try. :)


They'll be slow to appear, but after several rounds of editing, my fiction will also periodically appear in this tier. If you want to read things at a more rapid pace, take a look at the $10 tier.

Advanced Readership
$10 or more per month 7 patrons
In additon to all of the goodies from tiers $1-$5...

This is where you get to read what I write as I write it, from all of my works, be they short stories or longer novels. It guarantees to be a pretty busy reward tier during NaNoWriMo season! These are all just rough drafts and will definitely go through changes both major and minor before anything is deemed finished and publishable, but it's a good place to be if you like to read early works and offer feedback.
Goals
$174 of $1,000 per month
Part Time Artist!

If we reach this goal, you're paying me about half of what a basic full-time day job pays me in a month! Whoo! That's a better stress reliever than anything on the market right there.
