Howdy.

This is my Patreon page. I write novels about queer characters who go on mystical journeys.

My current project is Goda's Slave, an F/F dystopia. You can read this novel for free on my website or on Wattpad.



Goda's Slave is currently in the works, and I am posting each chapter publicly as I finish it. It will always be available for free, though I will also most likely make an illustrated version available for purchase once the novel is done. (You can learn more about Goda's Slave and my intentions with this weird novel further below.)

By supporting me on Patreon, I can:
  • Write novels like Goda's Slave and make them available for free, so everyone can read them.
  • Spend more time creating queer novels for the people, and less time doing commercial freelance work for The Man.
  • Get a custom cover made. Not gonna lie, I made the cover of Goda's Slave on Canva. It works for now, but a real artist would do better.
  • Hire an artist to make illustrations for inside the novel.
  • Get better hosting.
  • Drink more green tea. Green tea is fuel from the gods.

What is Goda's Slave About?
It's a dystopian novel with mostly (what we would call) queer characters. In a wide sense, it deals with the expansion of human consciousness through the eyes of a single individual.

Plot-wise, it's a novel about a young woman who lives a very sheltered, comfortable life, and then is suddenly thrown into a confusing new culture as the lowest member of society. In the midst of all of this chaos, she is also forced to face the ugly truth of her own responsibility for the situation.

On a different level, it's a story about resistance to life. It's about the gifts that life is dying to give you, but that can't flow to you because you're picky about the wrapping paper.

Goda's Slave is part of a planned trilogy. The first novel (this one) is about power, resistance, and shedding old perspectives. The second novel is about letting go and creating something new with the flow of reality. The third novel will be about self-surrender.

In addition to the trilogy, I plan to write many other novels, novellas, and novelettes that explore the internal journey of self-transformation through many different characters and perspectives.

Why Am I Writing This?
Well, first of all...just because. :D

Basically, I want to write fiction about people experiencing extreme personal growth, the kind that completely breaks them as a person.

I also want to write fiction that heavily includes the following elements:
  • A multi-perspective view of reality, one that fuses objective and subjective elements. Reality is confusing.
  • An exploration of culture and how it shapes the beliefs and concepts we cling to.
  • Moral ambiguity. Situations where it's hard to tell who is in the right, who is the victim of whom, and who "deserves" what.
  • An exploration of the dance of masculine and feminine perspectives, and the volcanic eruptions that happen when they clash.
  • Characters who just happen to be queer, but who are not self-aware of it and face no resistance from society for it. (There is certainly a place for fiction about overcoming society's prejudices against queer people, but I wanted to explore a more naked queerness.)
  • Human relationships (including romantic ones) that do not follow the typical rubric, or any rubric at all. A depiction of relationship anarchy occurring organically.

So that's my aim with this. I'd like to write novels like that, and I'd like you to read them. The first of these is Goda's Slave.
Tiers
Dollar Tree
$1 or more per month

$1 is a seed that shall grow into a spreading Dollar Tree.


At this tier, I will send you a copy of the ebook (ePub) version of Goda's Slave when the novel is finished. In addition, you'll get the fancy (non-free, full of bonus content) version of the ebook once that's done. In addition to that addition, as long as you're subscribed, I'll send you ebook versions of every novel I put out (with the exception of novels that are under some exclusivity contract, e.g. Amazon KDP Select; however, I will avoid this when possible).


It's almost as if you're going to that section of Dollar Tree (the one with all the trashy romance novels and public domain coloring books that smell like glue) and grabbing my book from the shelf--except it's more convenient because I'm delivering it to you digitally and so it doesn't smell like anything.


You will also have access to my patron-only posts. (So far, these are articles that dive further into some of the themes explored in Goda's Slave, such as unconditional love and self-surrender, and how these can be expressed in art. I'm open to ideas, though; lemme know.)

Triple Entendre
$3 or more per month

3 is a magical number. Benefits are the same as tier 1. (Benefits don't change until the 20 bucks mark; that's when I can afford to send you physical copies of my work.)


三きゅう~

Queer Quintuple
$5 or more per month

Encompasses all tiers before it.

Eleven Eleven
$11.11 or more per month

All the previous benefits. 11:11. If you know, you know.

Twenty Bucks
$20 or more per month

You will receive all of the previous benefits of all the other tiers (ebooks, etc), AND I will also send you a physical copy of Goda's Slave when it is released.

Unconditional Love
$100 or more per month

They say that unconditional love comes from a feeling of flow and oneness with the universe, but maybe it can also come in the form of 100 bucks. I'm really feeling the love right now.


At this level, you get all of the benefits of the previous tiers, and...I dunno, man. You tell me. Hit me up.

Goals
2 of 111 patrons
When we reach 111 patrons, we can:
  • Upgrade the hosting for the site. (And also buy hosting in bulk, so it's discounted.)
  • Possibly commission a better digital cover for Goda's Slave. We shall see. (Depends on whether it will have a custom illustration or not. I actually made a new cover recently and got attached to it, so maybe we can spend those simoleons elsewhere.)
  • Possibly hire someone to design the physical cover for the eventual print version of Goda's Slave. (Depends on how the above goes.)
