Hey lovelies. I'm offering a monthly subscription of short stories here on Patreon. The stories  would be a surprise every month. Some would be self contained while others would be continuing stories. You’d receive a short story every month, with no less than 1000 words. I’m thinking it would be a good venue for my Nightmares & Fairy Tales novelizations (based on various stories in the comic book series), as well a novelization of Annabelle’s Story, the last installment of the comic series that wasn't published. And for good measure I thought it would be fun to throw in "the further adventures" of some of our favorite GloomCookie characters. And as a bonus everyone who signs up in MARCH 2019 will receive a random signed hardbound copy of one of my villains novels.

Please take a look at the other tiers, as well as my frequent posts for any updates and sneak peeks on upcoming short stories. 

For those not familiar with my work, here's my bio: 
Serena Valentino is best known for weaving tales that combine mythos and guile with her work on the comic book series GloomCookie and Nightmares & Fairy Tales, and her best selling Disney Villain Novels which have earned her critical acclaim for her unique style of storytelling, bringing her readers into exquisitely frightening worlds filled with terror, beauty and extraordinary female protagonists. Her Disney Villain novel series would be best enjoyed if read in this order: Fairest of All: The Story of the Wicked Queen, The Beast Within: The Story of Belle’s Prince, Poor Unfortunate Soul: A Tale of the Sea Witch, Mistress of All Evil: A Tale of the Dark Fairy. Mother Knows Best: A Tale of the Old Witch and The Odd Sisters: A Tale of Three Sisters to be released July 2, 2019.
