Hello, Dreamlets—my name is Romey Petite. I'm an author who wears pinstripes, suspenders, and wire-rimmed spectacles. I've made a Patreon to share my short fiction with you.

First, I want to say thank all of those that have supported my fiction in the past. This has either been by reading and commenting on stories I've emailed your way for a second opinion or by pledging to the Kickstarter campaign Laurel and I ran back in Fall of 2017 (for Spiderella). It is because of you that I believe maintaining a Patreon is a monthly goal I can consistently meet. 

The initial goal of creating this Patreon is to share the fiction I've stockpiled with readers. I'm tired of the buffer of having to pay submission fees and waiting months and months. This seems like the best way around all of that.

I love reading fairy tales, myths, and short stories that blend the sacred and mundane—likewise, these are the kind of stories I tend to tell. While I've co-authored a book for all ages, I've also written stories verging on the territory of erotica. If you've only read what I've written for middle-grade readers, please bear this in mind before perusing my fiction.

Being a writer with a background in cartooning and illustrations (from the Center for Cartoon Studies) means sometimes I tell stories that are accompanied by pictures, but more often, I tell stories that don't require images to lean on (but I like making little sketches anyway). Patreon seems like a great way to support both the short fiction and art I want to continue creating. 

Right now, I'm offering you the chance to subscribe to my short fiction for $1+ a creation (you're definitely welcome to pledge more, of course) including one short story of roughly 1,000 words or more and an accompanying illustration! For the first several stories I post, I will provide the illustrations myself. My first stretch goal is to reach enough subscribers to also feature illustrated commissions from cartoonist friends of mine each time I finish and post a short story—hopefully, I'll reach that point around 50+ subscribers.

My long-term goal is to serialize a full-length novel or novella here on Patreon. I'm five chapters (30,000 words) into writing one and have received a lot of encouragement and positive feedback from friends. Still, I'd want to write two or three more chapters (so I have a bit more of a buffer) before I officially considering the possibility of opening it to a wider audience. It's definitely something I'd hope to reach somewhere in the neighborhood of 75+ subscribers.

If you're looking for more of my work, my short fiction has been published in 3Elements Review (“Spoor”), Scott Thrower's Fairy Tales for Unwanted Children (“Glass-Gazing”), Luna Luna Magazine (“Lyre, Lyre”), and Moonchild Magazine (“Vampires at the Beach”). I’ve written for the New Orleans Review and PineStraw magazine (I spent a year covering the monthly Bookshelf column from October 2016-2017). I also co-authored and wrote the illustrated middle-grade reader's novel Spiderella: The Girl Who Spoke with Spiders (published by Ingram Spark). 

I hope you'll consider supporting my short fiction! If you're still undecided I hope to win you over in the coming months. Thank you for checking out my Patreon!
