  WHO IS M. KIRIN? 

Hello there!
My name is Max, also known as M. Kirin. I'm a novelist and for the last five years I've been running a writing advice channel on YouTube (youtube.com/mistrekirin)!

I started this journey because I found that a lot of the writing advice going around was focused on negativity, and I knew things didn't have to be like that. I sought to create a place where anyone, regardless of their experience or writing goals, could find advice and inspiration.

The goal of my videos is not to give you the 'hard' rules to succeed. I am here merely just to show you a different point of view. The way I do things. My process, and my struggles. We're all writers in a craft where no one becomes master. And in this journey, I am learning too.

If you would like a glimpse into how I give advice I recommend the video below, where I go step-by-step through my method for planning a novel!


Of course the channel is not all there's to me! I am an independent author as well. The ongoing support of my Patrons has allowed me to publish several books over the last couple of years where otherwise there wouldn't have been. The books I have published are all because of my amazing Patrons.

  WHY PATREON? 

Why Patreon?
The things that bring me the most joy in life are telling stories and inspiring those around me. Patreon allows me a little more breathing room to not worry about rent and bills, and instead focus on what I care about the most. And, in turn, give you more of what you love.

More books. More videos. More advice. More of everything!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Regardless of whether you pledge or not I want to thank you, and I hope that you have a lovely day no matter where you are. ♥︎

◆ Exclusive Podcast: 'The Secret Life of Max'! Whenever I complete a phase of a novel (first draft, revision, etc.) I will record a podcast telling you all about The Struggle™. This is as real a behind-the-scenes as I can make it. My real thoughts. My writing process laid naked bare before your very eyes. Uncensored and unedited.


Note: The zines are small, so world-wide shipping is not a problem! Just be a little patient if you're outside of the US.

And I'll Sign it Too!

For the price of a novel a month you get ALL OF THE PREVIOUS perks, as well as… well, a novel— but it is not just any novel!


◆ Whenever I publish a novel you will get a signed copy of it delivered to your doorstep! I'm an indie author so book signings are rare for me, so this is the only way to get me to sign your copy!


◆ Also, when the goal is met I will level up these signed copies by giving them an alternative cover only available to patrons!


Note: Because of shipping costs this tier is only available to people living in continental US. I'm sorry but seriously shipping is SO expensive :c

For a little extra a month you get ALL OF THE PREVIOUS perks, as well as the following:


◆ Custom Shout Out & Acknowledgement! You'll appear first on the video shout outs as well as the acknowledgements in my books, but that's not all. You'll also get to have the URL for your blog, channel, website, or whatever you want in there as well. This is intended as a way for other fellow creators or creative people to get a little more exposure.


Note: Keep in mind though that I reserve the right to turn down your URL if it is not fitting or unappropriated. Again, this is for other creative people in a field similar to mine, send me a message before pledging if you have questions!

Goals

Max Finally Gets a Better Camera!
My videos are starting to look a little dated, but new equipment is expensive. If we can hit this goal I will be able to save up and purchase a good camera and (finally) a soft-light box so that no matter where I record the footage looks good!
