Hi! I'm Melissa Treglia, an aspiring (but broke) writer from small-town New Jersey. In 2016, I had the good fortune to be awarded for making the top ten of the NAMI New Jersey poetry contest (under my legal name). Currently, in addition to continuing my poetry, I am also returning to my long-time passion for short stories.

I will be posting the pieces I write for open calls here, as well as accepting commissions exclusively from Patreon donors. And, sometimes, I'll put something up just for the heck of it. Because you never know when the writing bug will strike.

I'm trying to make an online presence for myself and get my name out there, and I need your help to do it. So please, donate a few bucks, so I can spend the rest of my life doing the thing I love so much: writing awesome fiction.

And yes, genre fic (sci-fi, fantasy and horror) are totally my thing. But I'm willing to work in other genres too, because I love to stretch my creative muscles.
Tiers
Basic
$1 or more per month
Those who donate one dollar will have access to the stories and goodies I post here, as well as exclusive deals on my music and tarot/astrology readings.
Advanced
$5 or more per month
Those who donate five dollars, in addition to full access and exclusive deals, can commission a short story using a concept of their choice. For example:
"I'd like a space opera romance with the girl saving the guy."

Each story, being personally written, will take time to complete. Updates will be given to the patron regularly prior to completion. Average wait will be 3-5 days, depending on my workload and the length of the piece.


Alternatively, you can request a personal reading. An astrology reading will take 1-2 weeks, depending on my workload. A tarot reading will occur over voice chat, whenever you're available (average length will be 1-2 hours).

Ultimate
$10 or more per month
Those who donate ten dollars or more will receive 


*  full access to my posted work,


*  ability to commission a short story or a reading,


*  access to a three-chapter sample of my upcoming vampire novel Griffin Unbowed (co-written with my longtime collaborator Nicole Harvelle),


* and coupons to receive free digital copies of my full-length published books. 

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
When I reach $500, I will begin posting chapters from my upcoming serial fiction, Mockingbird, once every month. It is a psychological horror story focusing on a girl who is haunted by demons--both the inner and supernatural kind.

More details on this project will be forthcoming, as the goal amount gets closer.

But there is a thoroughly practical reason for wanting to reach this monthly goal: A monthly allotment of $500 from my patrons would mean I would no longer have to depend on foodstamps to feed my family.
