Hello, friends! I am Rose Lemberg, queer, bigender immigrant author and Nebula finalist (among other things). Birdverse is my LGBTQIA-focused multicultural secondary world with a unique magical system, magical geometry. The world is named after its Bird deity. Birds are awesome.

This Patreon is where I share things I would not share anywhere else: snippets, poems, progress reports, thoughts on writing, all kinds of thoughts, drawings, paintings, doodles, letters characters write to each other, goats (goats are also awesome), essays - the Writing While Autistic series has been my latest essay project.

Birdverse Patreon is a happy place! Stretch goals help us unlock additional rewards and make them available to more people. Awesome things that Patrons unlocked so far:


If you haven't read anything set in Birdverse yet, I recommend Where to Start with Birdverse? An Infographic (also features links and content notes for easy reading). You do not have to be a Birdverse fan, or read any of my stories, to enjoy this Patreon.

More about Reward Levels:

$1 level - Robin Redbreast: the patrons get updates, snippets, doodles and whatever else strikes my fancy. It's a robust tier with lots of rewards :)

$2 level - Saffron-Crested Finch: This Birdverse bird has many our-world relatives, and it's one of my favorite little birds. Patrons at this level get all of the $1 rewards, and also poems and poem outlines. I post poetry that is not available elsewhere, and  pages from WHAT BIRD LEARNED, a Bird-themed chapbook of poems contained in birds. Look at a sample page here!

$3 level - Eagle Owl. This is a postal owl! Patrons get all the Finch rewards, and also Letters from Birdverse. In 2017, I posted a the totality of "The Splendid Goat Adventure," an epistolary short story narrated by Marvushi e Garazd, a genderqueer advanced student from the Great Burri desert. In 2018, Marvushi's adventures will continue in a brand-new miniseries titled The Magnificent Insect Intrigue :D Read the first letter of The Splendid Goat Adventure for free here.

$5 level - Blue Whistling Thrush. I love drawing for Patreon, and Patreon is pretty much the only place where you can access my whimsical drawings on a regular basis. Thrush patrons get all the Owl rewards, and also one custom doodle per year (your choice of critter). You can see our critters under the tag Critterfest. At this level, I also post exclusive updates about my publishing process.

$10 - Sandbird. This is the Old Royal's magical bird, and this includes the Birdverse Academia reward. You get to choose an academic topic and there WILL be an in-world book written on this topic! (Readers will see the title and the author's name, and perhaps a small snippet of its contents). You also get a more elaborate Critterfest doodle, OR two regular doodles.

$25 - the Greater Lainish Peachicken. This is a new, experimental level for 2018! The Peachicken is folkloric in Birdverse and does not really exist even there, which does not prevent people from painting it on furniture :) Choose this level to get all the Sandbird rewards, and I will also send you a paper chapbook in 2018. Limited to 10 people :) :)

My patrons are charged per month of support. Please make sure that you are choosing a level that makes you comfortable.

Thank you very much, and happy Patreoning!

Goals
$410 of $415 per month
This is a special stretch goal - if we reach it, it means that Patreon earnings have replaced the child support that my ex is supposed to pay (but does not pay) for Mati's upbringing. To celebrate, I will post an issue of PLONKONGAK! the comic strip I drew in 2014, being the one and only installment of the Amazing Adventures of Firebird and Fish. It celebrates goofy love and - of course - pigeons.
