About Sara Marks - Author

Hi! I'm Sara and I'm an author.
I love creating universes. My 21st Century Austen stories, the Yom Tov holiday romances, Kraulaak, and all my short stories share a universe. The romance stories being the side of the universe filled with hope and the horror being the dark, hopeless side. They are parallel universes; lives destroyed in one while lovers get their happily-ever-after on the other side. 
You can learn more about me and my stories around the web:

Collaborative Writing
I love sharing my stories. A few years ago I thought I would write one novel and one short story collection every year. Then 2019 happened and I realized I was capable of doing more. I'm not sure I want to repeat this past year but I want to challenge myself in new ways. I also want to bring readers along for the ride.
I'm attempting collaborative writing through Patreon. All my writing will be moving here, to Patreon! All the novels, all the short story collections, all the romance, all the horror, and whatever else comes next (hint, fantasy romance, gods, magic, and more). You can be part of it by giving feedback, helping me make decisions, and sometimes contribute your ideas directly to the story. 
There will be two types of projects you can support: 
  1. Horror/Fantasy/Thriller - These will be the non-romance focused stories. They may have romance in them but they're darker. This is where the magical world will be built out and the dark side of my universe is explored.
  2. Romance/Chick Lit - These will be the sexy, sweet, swear-word-filled stories that include the 21st Century Austen novels and stories. There may be hints of magic and darker themes, but they will be hopeful and have happily-ever-after ending.

What Do You Get?

You can pick one or both projects to collaborate on me with. It only costs $2 a month ($4 if you do both). You will either read content or make decisions later in the process. Once the project is complete, you will get to help pick the next one and roll into it! Benefits will depend on each project but most will begin after the first or second draft has been finished. Readers will get to read chapters or stories each month to give feedback. Changes from feedback and edits will be shared. If there are related short stories to novels, you will read those to. You will pick cover designs, fonts, promotion option, and swag. At the end of the project, when the final book is released, you will get an autographed paperback edition. Your name will be included at the front of the book as a collaborator. Each project will be slightly different but expect to have a greater role than just a reader.

Goals
$41.83 of $200 per month
Helping me reach this goal allows me to be able to publish one of these books without pulling from my personal savings. Each book can cost between $2,000 - $4,000 depending on the cost of the cover design and the editor’s involvement. It might be even more if there’s more work to be done developmentally.
