Hey, my name is Sacha Black and I need two things, time and coffee.

I'm an author. Specifically, I write Young Adult books, some fantasy, some contemporary and hopefully, in the not too distant future, some dystopian ones too. I also write non-fiction writing craft books that teach fellow writers how to develop various parts of their craft.

I have two fiction books out (Keepers and Victor) the first two YA fantasy books in Eden East novels, and I'm working on the third. I also have four non-fiction books - 13 Steps To Evil: How to Craft A Superbad Villain (and companion workbook), and 10 Steps To Hero: How To Craft A Kickass Protagonist (and companion workbook).

But here's the kicker, I also have a day job, and I'm a mum to a little one. That's a lot of time pressure. The result? I'm personally responsible for consuming at least 87% of the planet's coffee, and I'm still knackered.

And so, welcome to...



The more dedicated book days I have, the more books I can write, whether that's books, marketing tutorials or informative publishing blogs. The ultimate goal? Quit my day job so I can write full-time.

Every book day equivalent milestone I reach on here (around $100 dollar increments) you'll all get some bonus content to celebrate. If I hit $2000 per month, then I'll quit my job and you'll be getting a helluva lot more content.

While patronage is building, I'll continue to provide content, but if at some point, it becomes obvious we'll never hit $2000 then I'll fulfill that month and cancel the Patreon. Why? Well, the goal is to quit my job, if that can't happen, then I got to find another way.

In the meantime, I'll be sharing my obsession for learning everything there is to know about book marketing, publishing, and the writing craft, as well as insights into my fiction books. And if you've met me, you'll know my blood runs thick with words. Let's get this bad boy on the road, shall we?
