Who Are You?
Well, my name is Citlali de la Luna. I'm a writer, baker, lemonade aficionado.
Do you want to get to know me a little better? 
Patreon only allows me to link to Twitter, but the hostility of the environment has proven to be not so welcoming to me or people like me. You can find me instead on Mastadon!

What Do You Write?

My main project is currently something I call New Fire; a hybrid high fantasy and steampunk novel. My family is from Mexico, and growing up I always had my nose in a book. I was raised by fantasy stories... But I couldn't help but notice how no one in the stories ever looked like me. They never ate the foods I knew or spoke the languages I grew up hearing.

My long term goal is to write the stories that younger me needed to read, to know I wasn't alone or an outsider. I want everyone to read stories that reflect who they are and know that they could also be a Chosen One.

What Exactly Is New Fire?

New Fire is a thought exercise in altered history. What if the Spanish lost control of their colonies? What if the indigenous people managed to reclaim their land? What if the USA had never expanded further than the Mississippi? What if both the Union and the Confederates had lost the civil war to a slave rebellion?

The modern world is altogether familiar and foreign at once. We have television, cars, phones, the internet, sure.. But we all also live in a giant floating city. Meat is a rare luxury. We still worship the sun, by using it to power our rails, our offices, our homes. And the USA? Well, they don't like us too much.. Bad blood, yknow? 

One more question... Something we all must have thought at one time or another... What happened to the gods? How did they get written across so many cultures and then disappear? Well..

Why Should I Support You?

Well! So that I can continue to write! The more support I gain, the more time I can spend pumping out content! The more cool features I can implement. A once every two month sticker. The ability for me to hire real graphics artists to illustrate our heroes. I would love to be able to send out tastes from my culture in little mini care packs. Eventually, I'm going to need to get this story all professionally edited and revised. We're going for the gold here, fam. We're gonna publish this big time.

Besides all of my wild fantasies, you get exclusive access to my writing. Higher tiers get access to my doodles, scrawlings, and insane ramblings. You get to see projects that were cut or not completed, scenes that never made it to this draft, inside peeks at the background world. Once or twice a month I want to be able to have an Ask Me Anything Lens session where I invite my patrons to ask me questions about life and lore. We're doing cool things here. Promise. No support is too small. $1 adds up tremendously over a handful of people!

The Office Project
Not that office. My office. I'm in dire need of a dedicated work space and the furnishings to go IN it. New Fire is my baby and the way things are shaping out, it'll be going on for a couple of books at least. Its my dream to work full time on New Fire, and for that I need a space. 

Once that is done, patrons $20 and up will receive quarterly celebration packages dedicated to the god, goddess, or festival of the month!
