About Melissa Frey, Author

Welcome to my Patreon home!

My name is Melissa Frey, Author, Editor, Instagrammer, AuthorTuber, and Lover of Stories. Oh — and a Grammar Nerd! My first novel, The Secret of the Codex, is available now on Amazon. The second book in the series, The Prophecy of the Codex, is scheduled to release in Spring of 2020. I've also got some pretty exciting things planned for the future. 😊

I created my Patreon page to connect with other authors and readers who just love a good story or who want to learn how to better tell their own. That's where this page comes in!

So what is Patreon? Patreon was founded on the concept—popular several hundred years ago—of royalty and the wealthy supporting artists in the creation of their art. A lot of popular art was created this way. The Patreon platform just brings this concept into the modern age!

We'll have discussions here, early access to fun things, and get to connect to talk all things #bookish. Something you'd like to see but don't yet? Let me know! I'm always updating the tiers as I hear what patrons would like.

Ready to get started? Just pick your favorite tier rewards and sign up!

Who am I and what is my background?

I have been writing fiction for over ten years. I am a book editor as well! My work background is in accounting, marketing, and business administration, so I love to apply what I've learned about business to the author life.

But ultimately I write, first and foremost, because it makes my soul sing.

What can you expect from me?

My heart is to help readers connect to my stories and to me in a meaningful way and to help authors make their stories the best they can be. I have the heart of a teacher, so I love to help others learn about themselves and others to better the world around them! Fiction is a great way to do that.

Why did I choose to start a Patreon?

I am currently transitioning from a traditional 9-5 to a work-from-home writing and editing career. I've had multiple health challenges recently, and they have made me realize what's really important in life — writing, and helping others with their writing, too! I hope you'll join me on the journey!

When I reach 10 patrons, I will do a Patreon-exclusive Q&A video with questions asked by my patrons! The questions can be anything about my writing, your writing, Stephen King's writing...or editing, self-publishing, the writing business (i.e. marketing, accounting, etc.), or anything else to do with the writer life! 😉

So get your questions ready!
