Hi, my name is Paolo and I'm a writer.

What can I find here?

I write mostly science fiction and fantasy. I like to work with tropes: explore, subvert, deconstruct, celebrate and exalt them.
I also like to question myself about privilege and society norms, especially when I can come up with my own society based on unusual natural and magical laws.
This Patreon page is my safe haven. Here I post everything I write without fear of judgment: stories, essays, reviews (books, series, movies). You can follow me (and get notified when I post something) and have access to everything. A Patreon account is free.

Why Patreon? (aka what's this?)

Patreon is a platform that lets you support creators. In my specific case, you can follow me for free (and, as I said, get access to all my content), or you can pledge a monthly amount, from 1$ up to what you can & want to afford. All the money I collect here go directly to my writing, meaning hardware, time off from my freelance job, etc.
Patrons get all my thanks and some special gifts of course. For now it's early access to my stories, in the future, as the numbers hopefully grow, I'll add more rewards. I try to engage with as many people as I can, because the first step in writing is finding a good story, and reality is my favorite hunting post.


When do you publish? (aka when will you release the next chapter?)

I plan on releasing AT LEAST one story every month. This means I won't publish less than one, but I give myself leeway if a month is especially productive, with a limit: I won't publish more than one story a week.
This has a slightly different effect if you are a patron or not. I release an "early bird" story for my patrons first, and then I make it public the day after I release my next "early bird" story.

I.e.: let's say I have two stories, one about Vikings and the other about Martians. This Monday's story release is "early bird Vikings". Next Monday I'll release "early bird Martians", and Tuesday the Viking story will become public (or, more precisely, will be released again in a public post).

Again, I have a rule: I'll not leave an "early bird" story unpublished to the public for more than a month. In the unlikely case I do not release a new story for a month, the last one will become public in a month no matter what.

WAIT A MOMENT, in the second paragraph you said you don't fear judgment, does it mean I'll get banned if I criticize your work?

No. You won't get banned for criticizing my stories. I actually look forward to any feedback you'll provide me! You are in fact my alpha and beta readers!
But, be polite.
You can get banned if: you act like an asshole, you are mean to others, you write racist/sexist/*ist stuff.
I like to write about sensitive topics, and I try to do it in the best way I'm capable of. I do think that everyone has room for improvement, especially someone like me who comes from a position of privilege.
