Yellow! That’s a joke because it sounds like hello.

Let me start over. I’m R.R. Virdi, and I need your help.

I’m a science fiction/fantasy author primarily writing and publishing in the urban fantasy genre. My series, The Grave Report, has been nominated for a Dragon Award in the best fantasy (paranormal category 2016) and at the time of writing this, I’ve published three novels. Dangerous Ways, book one of The Books of Winter, has landed in the 2017 Dragon Award finalists as an urban fantasy novel. Many of my short stories have been published in anthologies to benefit charities such as the Alzheimer’s Association, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

I’m at the part of my career where the demand for my writing is taking off and the income isn’t quite what it needs to be to meet that demand. I’m writing full time, landing appearances at conventions and even attending them as an industry professional now.

Between writing, attending conferences, researching material, and juggling three series, (yeah, I have three in the works) it’s getting to be time consuming. My career is at the point where it’s make it or break it. I’m consistently working on honing my skills, and producing whatever I can to the best of my ability. In all of that, it’s hard to keep up freelance writing and a stable source of income outside of my writing. And writing income is unpredictable.

I need your help to buy me time to get more projects out there so I can invest in my career and turn this into something long term.

I want to write for you!

I want to create art and share it with you. I want to be able to dedicate the time to write short stories in between it all and give those out for free so people can read without having to commit to my novels. Not everyone can afford giant books, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to read.

What your patronage will allow me to do is all of that hopefully. I’ll be able to keep producing high quality novels and share them with the world. I’ll be able to follow my dreams and make bigger strides and capitalize on the good things already happening.

In the three years since being published, I’ve been nominated for a variety of awards, one being a massive one. I’ve met my heroes in the writing world, many of them have copies of my works. I’m attending cons as a guest, and I’m just getting started.

I’m humbly asking for your aid in helping me accomplish all of that.

Thank you.

Thank you times five! And congrats, you are now a fully fledged minion ready to help me conquer the literary world. *Cue cackling* 

What do you get in this tier? 

  • First, everything listed in the above tier.
 
  • Monthly short story and any deleted scenes from novels, or one to two alpha stage draft chapters of a novel I'm working on before anyone in the world gets to see them. You get to be part of and watch me writing my next novel slated for publication. Nifty, huh?

Ooooh boy, someone's moving up in Minion Town. You have climbed the minion ranks to really chip in to help me achieve my goals. Thank you again.

Whaddya get?

  • Access to a private Q&A session where I answer any questions from last month including any posed live on the YouTube session. Discuss any comments. Talk about my career and novel plans to come. You get a live time video shout out for your support.

Oh-ho, a great many thanks. Someone wasn't content with just being any old minion. You wanted the leafy skirt (very stylish and breezy) that comes with being a Minion Chief. Congrats, it's yours. What do you get here?

  • Everything in the above tiers obviously
 
  • But wait, there's more. You get access to a private set of monthly writing workshop classes. You, & 3 other people (limited at this time ) get a private skype conference call with me to work on, hash out, plan, & develop your stories.
Goals
7% complete
This is the number I need to hit to basically survive. Whatever doesn't go to cover insurance and basic living expenses (so you know, I don't die) goes to saving up to attend conventions where I can hopefully meet you and continue to grow my career. I've already gotten invites to attend and do panels at many, but travel, lodging accommodations and more require funding.

This number pretty much allows me to eek by the tightest margin. Anything higher is gravy. 

If I hit this, you can be sure to see me attending cons and travelling. I'll document the process, the journey with videos (my gopro 4k) and photos. You'll come along with me for this awesome ride into what's hopefully a lifelong literary career.
