I could be funny here but I always regret it when I try.

I am a white cis woman in her thirties with a support system; I work in food and retail; I’ve been writing and drawing all my life. I started this campaign so people who know my work can gimme money and interact. If you're just stumbling across my page: hello! My work is all available for free at rachelwestbooks.com. If you like what you see, come back and let me know; either with a pledge of support or just by commenting, following or sharing.

I’m asking for money because I believe that supporting artists is important, life affirming, life saving, and fun, and because it’ll help me afford things I like.

About This Page:
Depending on pledge level, patrons will see 2-3 posts per month.

Here's the current schedule of posts!
  • First Friday: Public Post (could be anything!)
  • New Moon: Patron-only Prompt
  • Last Sunday: DLC/bonus content for $5+ Patrons

In between scheduled posts I will be sharing behind-the-scenes process notes and discord hangouts, depending on how much fun that is for participants, including myself. Patrons will also get first look at my new material and have access to posts detailing my IRL activities like radio broadcasts.

I'm always looking for better ways to do what I do, so I try to keep patrons and fans apprised of my plans and schemes. Every six months or so I will be tweaking this page to make it better and every year I revisit some of the bigger issues. Rachel's Patreon Year runs July to July because July 2017 was when I started this whole thing.

Look forward to selfies of me actually out in public as I treat myself to at least one afternoon per week at a walkable coffee shop or cigar bar. There, I will work on drafting new material and editing old material. Alternatively I may look into actually getting a share of an office/community/studio space for this purpose.
