About

Hi there! I'm Suzan Butler, and I write under the name S.M. Butler. I also like cookies. Would you like one?

They’re really good.

*offers plate of cookies*

Who is this weird person?

I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I'm also a voice-over artist ( I'm available to do YOUR audiobook!) and recently, I've gotten into Youtube on a semi-regular basis.

I'm a storyteller before anything else. I love telling stories.

But people are rarely just one thing, and I'm no exception. I'm a writer, an artist, an AuthorTuber, a voice-over actor, a mother, and a small business owner. Yeah, I'm busy. But I like busy. Especially busy with creating story. But my story has come to a fork in the road, as it were. It's time for me to choose my own adventure. (See what I did there? ...Please don't sue me, Chooseco!)

2020 is the Year of the Freelancer

At least for me. It's the year I finally transition from Sucky Day Job to the studio at home. I'm doing this as much for my happiness and desire as I am for self-care and health.

My current full-time gig is decently paying, but it's physically and mentally exhausting and it's taken a serious toll on my health in the last few years. Between working that fifty hours a week, and coming home to work on writing and other various creative pursuits, something has to give. It's time for me to pick one career.

This first campaign is for $1000 a month

I know the magic number it will take for me to be able to quit my job. $1000 isn't it, but it will allow me to cut back my hours and gradually let my freelance work take precedence. Once we reach that goal, it will unlock new goals to reach for, including quitting my job and devoting myself fully to storytelling, as well as introduce a whole lot of new rewards for patrons.

The more this page earns, the more I can do for YOU

I know that’s a big number, but I’m willing to throw content at you to make it happen. I’ve set up a number of stretch goals for added content along the way--and I reserve the right to add more for fun--because I believe that if you're giving, I should be too. And truly, I love creating for you all because every one of you here with me on Patreon is a ROCKSTAR. I am thankful for each and every one of you for your love and support.

Like the patrons of the past, you literally make it possible for me to devote time and money to create more stories for you. For supporting me here, you have my overwhelming gratitude and the knowledge that you're fueling this creator's writing with your support. But of course, you get other stuff too. Because if you came to my house to visit, I'd feed you cookies and drinks and talk with you for as long as you wanted. I can't do that online, so I'll just give you stories instead.

If you’ve made it this far…


You are awesome. No, really. So. Much. Awesome.

And if you can't support me here, that's totally okay! I've been there, too. But I'd still love to connect with you. Please follow me over on Instagram or subscribe to my YouTube channel. You could even help me boost the signal by referring a friend you think might enjoy my stories. No matter what, I'm happy to meet you!

So what are you waiting for? Join the Rockstars!

Two things are going to happen here. First, I'm going to start doing at least one livestream just for y'all to talk books and writing and publishing. Second, y'all get two extra serial posts per month.
