So it's been some time since I've updated, due to a combination of factors. I've had to cut back my public social media presence a little for personal reasons, and I'm now in a full-time job that leaves me with little time to create content. That said, I have been working on a new writing project that I'm very excited to share. Watch this space in the coming weeks for a complete overhaul of my Patreon. Thanks! <3


Hi! I'm Scarlet, a UK-based non-binary writer. I'm currently writing Of Saints and Angels, a sci-fi/fantasy book series set in modern England, with adventures across the globe (and maybe one day beyond)!

I've been writing creatively since I was 11, and I've always enjoyed building my own worlds and characters, and bringing them to life. Since I had the realisations about my sexuality and gender when I was 18, I've wanted to create stories about people like me, for people like me. I've always loved science fiction and fantasy, so combining these two to create a series centred around LGBT+ people saving the day is really fun for me!

I've started this Patreon so I can make a living doing what I love, and so I can share my work with anyone and everyone who wants to read it! While I mean to make the books available for purchase on Amazon as they're completed, I also want to offer prospective readers the chance to be involved in the creative process. Basic tier patrons get patron-exclusive progress updates and previews of new chapters, while those who go in for a little more will gain access to all completed chapters and a copy of each novel when they're finished! Higher tiers will let you request specific stories set in-universe, exploring a fight, character interaction, or other scene you really want to see, and for those who are feeling extra generous, there is even the opportunity to design your very own canon character, and either to incorporate them in the main series or to have your short story based upon them!

I'm really excited to share this series with you all.

With love,

Scarlet <3
Tiers
Access to my patron feed!
$1 or more per month
Gain access to patron-exclusive news, updates and chapter previews not available anywhere else!
Your name in a thank-you page!
$3 or more per month
Patron-exclusive news and previews, plus you get your name or username written in a thank-you page included in every copy of the finished novels!
Full story access!
$5 or more per month
At this tier, you gain all the previous rewards, plus early access to all chapters as soon as they're finished, and if you stay on this tier for at least 2 months you'll get a copy of the first novel once its finished for no extra charge!
Short story in-universe!
$10 or more per month
Get a short (up to 5,000 words) story of your choice set in this universe, featuring any fight scene, character interaction, or backstory moment of your choice! This reward is bimonthly, so you get one short story every two months. There's a few things I won't write, and if you want it to be considered canon, then it has to comply with the existing story, but I'm open to a lot of things!


In addition, you'll gain all the previous rewards, and will only need to pay once at this tier to qualify for the final novel!

Design your own canon character!
$25 or more per month
You can design an antagonist or supporting character and have them included in one of the final novels! You can choose their name, age, gender, personality, magic specialism (if any), weapon and whether they're a hero or villain! I'll write them into the main story, and you can even recommend the kind of scene you'd want to see them in! The only rule about the character is that they're lore-friendly - the rest is all up to you!


Don't forget, you'll also gain all the previous rewards, including the short story! If you want, it can have your character be the main focus of the story!


This is a one-off reward for now, so it will only be available if you're at this tier for at least 2 months. Depending on feedback, I'm open to making it recurring on an annual or biannual basis.

Goals
$23 of $275 per month
This is roughly what I need to cover standard living expenses - caffeine, food, more caffeine, and all that. Having that nice baseline will mean less time spent worrying and more time writing, which means more content for you! I'll also make a thank-you video, with shoutouts to the top 10 patrons and probably a ridiculous wiggly dance or something.
