HALLOWEEN SPECIAL OFFER!!!

All Patreons at $3 or higher who join by September 30 2018 will get an exclusive, never-to-be-heard-again podcast episode: Tansy's Witchy Reads. Want to know what my all time favourite books about witches are? Sign up now.

Also for Halloween this year I am hosting the first ever Inky Valkyrie Book Club here on Patreon, for all my subscribers. We'll be discussing classic children's novel Which Witch by Eva Ibbotson.

It's a great time to join my Patreon because also dropping in October: the ebook of brand new Australian witch university story "Halloween is Not a Verb." You can listen to the story as an audio serial right now on Sheep Might Fly -- or read it next month, as all my patrons get the ebook BEFORE ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD as one of their standard rewards.

WHO AM I?

I'm an award-winning blogger, SFF writer, feminist and podcaster based in Tasmania, Australia. Having this core group of subscribers willing to invest in my writing before it happens means the world to me, and inspires to me to keep putting words on the page, every day. 

I'm excited to create content I love for you all, to experiment across various media platforms, and to have fun with my writing. Thank you all so much for being here.


WHAT DOES THIS PATREON SUPPORT?

  1. Sheep Might Fly - a weekly podcast of serialised fiction written and read by me! I read reprints and original novelettes/novellas. The podcast is free to anyone who wants to listen. But it only happens because you, my beloved Patreon supporters, fund it.
  2. Ebooks - the original stories broadcast on Sheep Might Fly are packaged as ebooks and delivered to all my Patreon supporters, a month before general sale. New subscribers can download all books released so far, including stories from the Castle Charming and Belladonna University series, plus Musketeer Space: the epic space opera novel that started it all. 
  3. Annual Non-fiction Book of Mystery - we unlocked this extra reward when we reached the $250 monthly goal. So far there are two essay collections to download: The Fictional Mother (2017) and Gentlewomen of the Press (2018)
  4. Exclusive TansyRR Stories - You asked for it, it's here! All subscribers at the Ebook Extra ($2) level and above will get access to THREE original and exclusive short stories every year. These might tie into one of the many fictional universes I am currently juggling, or they might be something brand new. Their period of subscriber exclusivity is 12 months -- and when new subscribers sign up you can download all the stories so far. There's 5 so far including the Castle Charming short "Charm or Dare," and the Belladonna U prequel, "The Alchemy of Fine."
  5. Galactic Suburbia, The Slack - this private, members only discussion forum allows you to chat about books, conventions, feminist SF, crafting, cooking and more, with fans of the Galactic Suburbia podcast & the other work of Alisa, Alex and Tansy. Our Slack features a Sheep Might Fly channel for discussing my podcast & stories — you can chat directly to me as well as your fellow readers. Pledging at the $2 level and above to my Patreon, you score an invite to this exclusive club. (message me if it doesn't let you in)
  6. Soapy Ballads - New in 2018! This original Mocklore fantasy serial novel will be released in fortnightly episodes to ALL subscribers. It's a Patreon exclusive, not appearing anywhere else online or in print until the serial is complete. Subscribers will get a bonus ebook compilation of the book at the end.
  7. Manticores - Several random and wondrous manticores will turn up the Patreon feed over the next year. Some will be mysterious. Some will be shy. Some will be openly feminist. Some will arrive via snail mail (depending on your support level) Most will only reveal themselves to you if you are a subscriber of this Patreon. (Though they may some day be contained in some form of book-shaped vessel, for the safety of all humankind)
