About Nicole Kornher-Stace

Hi! I'm Nicole and I've been writing and publishing speculative fiction since around 2007. Most recently my books have been the Norton Award finalist Archivist Wasp (Small Beer Press, 2015) and its sequel Latchkey (Mythic Delirium, 2018). My latest two novels just came out: my adult SF debut Firebreak, from Simon & Schuster/Gallery/Saga in May; and my middle-grade SF debut Jillian vs. Parasite Planet, from Tachyon in July.

I like to write about ghosts and ghosthunters and supersoldiers and weird robots and post-apocalyptic myths and survival stories and strong platonic friendships that don't get randomly turned into romances. I also like to mix up genres. That plus the zero-romance thing has made it hard for me to get a lot of stuff published in the past, though with every book it gets (probably?) a little easier. A very little bit easier. Maybe.

I've been running this Patreon page for a couple of years now and it's been extremely helpful for my morale, honestly. I have super mega impostor syndrome and always doubt that anyone cares about my process or my book extras or my works-in-progress, so just having you guys here cheering me on has given me a reason to stay motivated, even when I'm up to my eyeballs in the part of the publishing process that involves waiting interminably for things to move. (Now, for instance.)

What you can expect from this page: behind-the-scenes extras, deleted scenes, alternate endings (that got changed between first draft and final), works-in-progress, etc. Right now I'm writing the third and final Archivist Wasp book (working title Catchkeep) chapter-by-chapter, just fumbling through it in realtime for your amusement. Again, without your support I probably wouldn't have gotten around to that for years yet. So: thank you!

I don't want to overstructure this or make content inaccessible/unaffordable behind some arbitrary series of paywalls, so I'm going to keep it real flexible with a pay-what-you-want single tier. Any success my books have had has been via word-of-mouth and people generally being awesome on a grassroots level, so the last thing I want to do is repay your amazingness by sticking a high price tag on the best content. EVERYONE will get access to everything I post as well as any surprises I come up with. Any support you can give is utterly and endlessly appreciated. <3
