Calling all Fantasy Fans!

Hi, I'm Jemma - also known online as TottWriter or 'Tott' - and I have always loved telling stories. Adventures, journeys, explorations of what makes people tick and how they grow - I've spent most of my life creating fantastical worlds and the stories of their inhabitants.

Well, so far so good, but how has that lead me here?

The truth is, I've long wanted to share my fictional works with people, but both traditional and self-publishing options alike have always fallen short in terms of how they deliver stories to an audience.

Books written for print or ebook format usually tell a single narrative, however long or complex it might be. It's a familiar and well-tested method of storytelling, and it works  very well. But go beyond that - reach out to the world which surrounds the story - and there is so much left untapped!

For every book I set out to write, there are half a dozen I am usually forced to leave by the wayside. People and places I can only touch lightly upon, who have their own compelling adventures which remain untold. Now, using Tales With Tott I want to dive into those, and give my patrons the whole world, rather than just a narrow slice of it.

So, what can you expect if you become a Tales With Tott supporter?

My works take place across several fictional universes. Over time, supporters will gain deep and detailed access to all their inner workings. The more traditional story elements will be featured in both a traditional written format and as audio files for those on the go. Once a month you can expect a new story of at least two thousand words, and an accompanying audio version - I'm taking this opportunity to coin the term "Storycast" for those.

Not only that, but you'll get regular updates about my more traditional novels as they progress, along with sneak peeks at upcoming works via my discord server.

Or perhaps, maps and fact-files might be more your forte! Writing fantasy means creating entire worlds, and that comes with a lot of lore which often gets left out or relegated to appendices. Tales With Tott allows me to share this behind-the-scenes information in detail. 

All these benefits can be accessed on my website, Tales With Tott, which has been organised for ease of readability. As a taste of what Patrons can look forward to I even have a free story, Incurna's Flight, which you can read by checking out the link here.

Thank you again for visiting my campaign. This Patreon is an opportunity for me to finally create the fantasy platform I have always wanted, and I am delighted that you have found it! Storytelling and world-building are my passion; I feel as though I've been sitting on a treasure trove of fiction for years, just waiting for explorers to come and uncover it.

I hope you enjoy your travels in fictional lands!

Goals
$18 of $50 per month
Enhanced Website and shiny new recording equipment!

Achieving this goal will fully cover the costs of upgrading both my microphone setup and my web-hosting plan.

This will not only allow me to remove the irritating banners on the site, but also add to the storage space available for me to use - dramatically increasing the number of Storycasts I can keep in the Extended Fiction section at any one time.

As a bonus, after upgrading my microphone I will work through all existing Storycasts and re-record them so that all my work has that extra level of crispness!
