Hello, everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. Along the side, you can see my monthly funding goals, and the pledges and backer rewards are below. If you're looking for a bit more information, I've made a handy dandy FAQ to tell you about me and Patreon.

  1. Who am I? My name is Moira, and I'm an author writing Science Fiction, Fantasy, and all sorts of blends of the two! My projects include the Light & Shadow Trilogy, about a young orphan chosen to be a spy and assassin at a royal court; the Novum Trilogy, about a genetic engineering project gone wrong; the Shadows of Magic series under pen name Natalie Grey, about a mindwiped mage discovering her (very bloody) past; and the Dragon Corps series (also under Natalie Grey), about an elite military unit in a distant future.
  2. Why Patreon? Having a steady income each month devoted to working on my own projects means that I get to spend more time on the stories and worlds that I love, and it means that I get to bring those stories to you more quickly. It means that there's no chance of missing new books because Facebook (or Amazon, or Twitter) has changed its algorithms and you aren't seeing updates. It means you get ebooks delivered right to your inbox in your preferred format, with bonus short stories and other cool freebies!
  3. What sort of cool freebies are we talking about? Check out the backer rewards below - and if you don't see something you'd like, shoot me an email or a Facebook message with your suggestion!
  4. What am I working on right now? In no particular order, I'm working on the Dragon Corps series, the story for a video game called City of the Shroud, a book about nuns in space (not actually a joke), the Rise of Aiqasal trilogy, and an epic fantasy project called Battlemage!

Tiers
Shadow's Assistant
$1 or more per month 4 patrons
$1 may seem like nothing, but you'd be amazed at what a difference a few people pledging $1 can make! At this level, you'll see my updates on what's going on with my writing: behind the scenes progress on my books (including occasional experts!), as well as cool things I find online (shows, books, links).
Shadow-in-Training
$3 or more per month 4 patrons
Upgrade to an official Shadow-in-Training! At this tier you can...


  • choose any one of my books to be sent to you as an ecopy when you first join
  • choose two more ebooks every year! (Just send a message with which you'd like, and I'll send it along)


Please note that at this time, we are not able to provide you with your own individual sociopathic Duke. We're very sorry and regret any inconvenience this might cause.


Mage
$5 or more per month 11 patrons
The most popular backer tier - master fire and ice like your favorite (and most accident-prone) Yeshuhain mage! At this tier, you will get...


  • An omnibus of all novels and stories already published (in case you missed a few)
  • e-copies of all my new books
Dragon Recruit
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
Welcome, Dragon Corps recruits! We're pleased to have you aboard. Future missions may include overthrowing warlords and fistfighting cyborgs.


  • Along with the e-book extravaganza of the previous tier (and all other rewards), Dragon Recruits get to name one character or other thing (City? Spaceship? Planet? Really bizarre cult?) per year. That's right! Put yourself in there as a doomed side character, name a character for your friend so you can give them a copy of the book as a birthday present - whatever you want!
  • Additionally, with this tier and above, you will be able to see deleted scenes, marked up pages of edits, character sketches, and more, giving you a bigger peek into what my writing process looks like.
Keeper of the Archives
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
The Keeper of the Archives receives a signed paperback of their choice each year, in addition to all other backer rewards. As the Keeper of the Archives, you may also be responsible for safely containing dangerous books and corralling stray dragon whelps.
Goals
$151 of $204 per month
Another strange number, but I'm hoping to show just how author expenses add up! In addition to the expenses from the first goal, $204.49 covers $80 of advertising per month, plus membership at BookReport.
  • Right now, I have very limited funds to get the word out about books, but a certain amount of advertising really is necessary to bring new readers into my various series.
  • BookReport, meanwhile, is a service that helps me track my earnings and provides analytics as to which series' and pen names are really resonating with readers (along with showing me whether my money is coming from sales, or from page reads in Kindle Unlimited)
