Who am I?

I'm Sionainn (pronounced Shannon, but how can you not love the Irish spelling?) I’m 40 years old, and I have been writing since I was 8 years old. You know how sometimes life gets in the way of your dreams? That was me in a nutshell. I can’t exactly go back in time and slap myself to just write, but I can start now. Writing, not slapping myself. My journey has led me to this moment, when I finally stand up and say “Hey! Listen to my stories.”

I have always loved to write fiction. Fantasy is my usual genre, though I do have plans to delve into historical fiction in the near future. (Be excited!) I also enjoy writing erotica. As my patron, you will get all of that, and a unique perspective into me and my writing process.

My biggest influences are authors like Jacqueline Carey, George RR Martin, JK Rowling, and JRR Tolkien. I love creating fantastical new worlds, with Gods, Goddesses, Demons, mythical creatures, filled with magic and elaborate customs and beliefs.

So, why Patreon?
I've obviously opted for a non-traditional route into writing. I've turned to patreon for a little extra backing while I write- to share my stories with those willing to toss a little support my way. I want to take others into my worlds. I want to share my imagination with the world and tell the stories that have been in my head. I am someone who loves to write, and I am trying to find a way to make my dream of sharing those stories with the world come true. Patreon feels like the best platform for starting a journey to achieve that goal. The support you give me will allow me to focus and do what I love (writing!) and still contribute to my family.

My goal is to provide my patrons with at least one chapter a month of my current novel. Sometimes it will be more, sometimes, life can happen and it's less. I will let my muse guide me, and I will always keep my patrons up to date as to what is going on. I work hard on each and every chapter being the best I can make it. And for a bit of a disclaimer, I know publishing can be tricky, so what I release may actually change, whether it be chapter order, or things are taken out/added. 

And what do I get?
Most importantly, you get my gratitude and my stories.  I’ve also done my best to come up with some great rewards for my patrons. All patrons will get access to my patreon feed, which will feature segments of my work, updates and more.  Higher tiered patrons will have access to PDF copies of any finished work I do through patreon. I have fun bits planned for a downloadable zine- as well as surprises. There is shout outs, acknowledgements, pictures, and videos. My two top tiers of supporters will get handwritten thank you postcards and influence in my writing. I plan on spoiling my patrons as best I can!
$41 of $100 per month
My first goal- which is just to help supplement some pen and paper, and little extras that help the writing process. And while I already give towards other patrons, the more support I get means the more support I can give back in return.
