Oh hello,
Welcome and thanks for visiting. I'm your host Shannon and I'm your local weirdo writer. 

Let's dive right on in.

What I am doing here.

I am creating an ongoing urban fantasy novella that focuses on Queer POC. This work is a raw look at the writing process of creating this world. Patrons get first (and often) only access to absolute first draft realness. This means, you get to see editorial notes, notes to self, the writer yelling at themselves and every flubber, mistake, whoopsy and oh wow I hate this. 

AND, coming soon I'll be expanding my offerings. If urban fantasy isn't your jam, come for the craft talk. Starting in Mid October 2018, I'll also be offering some fiction to read and give you a writing lesson about that fiction. We'll get into writing flash fiction, inspiration, dealing with writers block and all that.

MORE? How about more.

I will also be making some Vlogs for patrons only about writing, the lit world and whatever else comes to mind. 

Why Patreon?

I am interested in creating art and sharing it AND keeping it financially sustainable. Capitalism sucks but we all have to play it. Most of the money from Patreon goes towards my lunch budgets for work, savings and most importantly, I use Patreon as a way of giving myself some economic breathing room. When I have that breathing room I'm better able to write.

Who am I?

I am a Black Queer writer who has been writing and publishing for about 22 years. I got my start writing smut and horror. I write a bit of everything from social justice oriented essay work, to personal essays, to poetry and more. To quote one of my dearest humans ever, I am a purple lipstick wearing loudmouth.

How much?

It is very vital to me to keep this portion of my work absolutely financially accessible. If you have a dollar per month to spare, you get it all. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you check out some of the free posts I have available to see if this lil thingy might be something you're into. 
Goals
100% complete
This amount a month raised would pay for everything and give me $28.60 to put away and whatnot.
