About StephWeavesTales

Enter a world where there's a Chosen One for every prophecy. Kerry wants to find the truth behind the urban legends in Paxwood--and confess her crush on her best friend. When Kerry digs into the Haunting of Paxwood House, she gets drawn into a dangerous web of prophecies. She meets Rowen, who survived her prophesied death and realized that Chosen Ones fighting alone are doomed to tragedy. Rowen seeks a place to gather Chosen Ones together to help each other survive. Is Paxwood House that place?

Greetings, potential patrons!

I'm Stephanie Gildart (StephWeavesTales) -- she/her

Maybe you've found your way here from my twitch productivity streams or one of my other social media accounts. Maybe you've been reading Paxwood on Kindle Vella and you want more. If you are looking for a paranormal fantasy adventure to read or some sweet sweet discounts on cute crochet critters, you're in the right place!



Paxwood is the culmination of over ten years of writing, worldbuilding, dreaming, and planning, and I want to bring it to you in all its epic glory. The series spans about twelve planned novels across four major story arcs, with tightly interwoven character storylines that explore the many facets of the "chosen one" trope--the burden placed on chosen ones against their will, what happens when chosen ones defy their callings, the chosen ones who survive their destinies (and those who don't), the people who see a problem that needs to be addressed and simply choose themselves.



Supporting this patreon gets you early access to Paxwood episodes, which will also be published on Kindle Vella. You'll get about one episode per week. At higher tiers, you can also receive exclusive background content like character profiles and worldbuilding articles about the setting of Paxwood, coupons for my etsy shop, and participation in monthly writing workshops.

It also makes you part of my writer's journey. With your financial support, I can expand my writing space and afford to commit more time to my writing process and other creative endeavors.

Take a look at the patron tiers and see if there's something here for you!
