Hello! I'm Dr. Nyri Bakkalian and welcome to my Patreon page!
ようこそ史学博士ナイリ・バッカリアンのパトレオン・ページへ!

I'm a new University of Pittsburgh graduate with a Ph.D. in Asian and military history, an avid storyteller and artist at heart, and over the past year, a published author. (Don't tell anyone, but garlic and Turkish coffee is the secret to my success). You might know me from one of my publications, or perhaps from my blog, Sparrowdreams.com -- but even if you're new, I'm glad you're with me.

Thank you for supporting my work. Your patronage will help me build the financial stability to focus on writing, art, and groundbreaking historical research. In supporting me, this is also where you'll get early access to my art, links to my essays on Japanese history and religion, and updates on what I'm reading and where research and creativity are taking me next. This is also where you'll find my alternate-history epic Shiogama Waves. (For the masterpost with hyperlinks to each chapter of Shiogama Waves Book One, click here!「鹽竈の漣」・第一巻を読みたいお方は是非こちらへ)

I'm thrilled to be writing and creating the content-- military history, Shinto blogging, queer fiction, and more-- that you've enjoyed for so many years. I want to bring you not only this story, but also the real history and folklore that go into producing it, in all its intensity, richness, and diversity, for a long time yet.

Welcome aboard!
