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 Science Fiction Romance! My recent 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; and the Dragon Corps series (under pen name Michaela Kendrick), about an elite military unit in a distant future.
  2. Why Patreon? As you may know if you've been following me on Facebook, I was recently able to start writing full time. This has been absolutely fantastic, but much of the writing I've been doing has not been for my projects. 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 (a set of standalone Science Fiction Romances), the story for a video game called City of the Shroud, the Yeshuhain Chronicles, the Novum Trilogy, a book about nuns in space (not actually a joke), and a possible foray into contemporary romance (a la Susanna Kearsley) and historical romance. For clients, I am working on contemporary romance, cozy mysteries, a spy novel, some editing, and some marketing.

$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 be able to vote on topics for my quarterly short stories, you'll be listed as a contributor in the acknowledgements section of my books (if you wish), and will have access to the patrons-only newsfeed, which will give you access to twice-monthly updates on the behind the scenes progress on my books, as well as cool things I find online (shows, books, links, op eds, pretty fannish things none of us can afford, etc).
Pledge $2 or more per month

Exactly like the $1 reward tier except for the fact that you're donating twice as much. That's right, you're enabling twice as many dragons, sarcastic jokes, spaceships, and short stories as you would be at $1!
Pledge $3 or more per month
4 patrons
All rewards listed at the $1 level, as well as ecopies of the quarterly short stories! At this level, you will be able to pick one ebook of mine to be sent to you when you donate, and you will be able to choose another ebook every calendar year!
Pledge $5 or more per month

The most popular backer tier! An omnibus of all novels and stories already published (in case you missed a few), all previous rewards, and ecopies of all my new books, as well as a monthly Google+ hangout about upcoming works, short story topics, and whatever questions you have for me.
Pledge $10 or more per month
4 patrons
All previous rewards, and you'll have access to all ebooks at least one week early (it's like living in the future, but you don't have to worry about being eaten by Morlocks). In addition, you will have a character named after you every year! Will you be a villain? A doomed side character? A spaceship? It could be anything! (Yes, I do take suggestions!)
Pledge $15 or more per month
1 patron
All previous rewards, as well as a monthly newsletter with deleted scenes and character sketches that don't make it into my final books. Additionally, every year you will receive one signed paperback of your choosing, as well as small folio of planning notes and early handwritten drafts to give you a window into my process, AND I'll pay $1 of this forward to another Patreon campaign (so feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments!)
Pledge $25 or more per month

All previous rewards, plus an ecopy of every book for the friend (or, I suppose, enemy) of your choice! You'll be so popular! At this backer level, you'll have TWO characters named after you or the person of your choice every year. Yes, you can make your friends into villains! Do it today!
Pledge $50 or more per month
1 patron
All previous rewards, plus a second signed paperback every year, and (when you sign up) a signed paperback of your choice from my backlist. I can probably say the word "paperback" more if I try very, very hard. Hooray for paperbacks!
Goals
$151 of $350 per month
With $350 per month, I can eliminate one of my freelancing projects - and free up time for about 25,000 more words per month - that means quicker turnarounds on all projects! At this level, backers can vote on a topic for a new short story. Light & Shadow? Saira? Original world? Whatever you pick, I'll write it!
