Hey, I’m Timandra Whitecastle, and I write stories.

I’m a Germany-based English native-speaker (long story!) who LOVES to read Fantasy.
I think that the hero’s journey (orphaned farmboy turns into saviour of the world) fantasy is good and has its’ proper place. However, there’s a danger if its’ mono-vision is the only, dominant fantasy story out there. Fantasy is one of those genres that can truly show the human condition and still entertain, if it’s done well. Yet, a few years back, I had reached a point where I just couldn’t find the dark fantasy books I wanted to read, so … I decided to write them myself.

You can too! 

Here’s my writing creed: we need more voices to be heard, more tales to be told, and from different perspectives! Tell Your Story!



Most writers use Patreon as a tip jar to finance more awesome stuff for their readers, which is great! More stuff for the win!

However, the beauty of Patreon is the more intimate access you as a Patron can have … As in the days of old, YOU, the patrons, are directly contributing to the creation of art, enabling an artist to create.

In my case, this means you’ll get unique and privileged access to my creative process. This is not just to entertain you with snippets of a work in progress or rants about how everything just isn't working (fun!), but an invitation to see firsthand both the broad strokes of any creative process in any given creative field AND the actual book creation from initial idea to finished project, all from my perspective.

Patreon is a great platform for organizing this concept, being able to upload word documents, videos, artwork—for which I’d typically need several websites. Plus, you have the the huge advantage that Patrons on a budget (who can only afford $1 per month) don’t have to worry about getting charged too much, whereas people with a lot to give are also welcome to support. Every dollar counts!

In short: With your support, I can focus on making and showing. You’ll be looking over my shoulder all the way!



Become my Patron today to

  • get a unique insight into my creative process; use it to jumpstart yours
  • collaborate! To have opportunities to influence some of my artistic choices, plus make it possible for me to pay other artists (concept artists, cover designers, interior designers, idk ... musicians?) You’re trusting me to be a curator and choose where to spread your money around, so I’ll make sure it trickles into the lives of other artists, creators and makers
  • offer criticism and share ideas; be part of the process
  • help me enable your writing journey—you have an idea but have never had a finished manuscript to publish? Don't know what to do when you get stuck? Don't know how to write yourself out of a funk? Always wanted to see how someone else gets sh*t done? Well, here I am, unboxing my fiction. Take a look!

THANK YOU!

YOU ARE HERE!
$1 or more per month 9 patrons
 You're supporting me and that's huge! Thank you! 


You'll get access to the patron-only feed and will be able to look at all the creative mess. Are you scared? I’m kinda scared...

THREE FOR A GIRL
$3 or more per month 1 patron
 You're supporting me even more, and you are also awesome! Thank you! 


- You'll get access to the patron-only feed, as above

- You'll also be DIRECTLY emailed keepable/readable downloads of the content (Rough drafts, Advance Reader copies, etc.)

LET'S GET COFFEE
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
You're supporting me a lot here, and $5 a month is really generous. It’s a Chai Tea Latte Grande with Almond Milk at my favourite coffee shop … where I drink tea, obviously, because I’m English... 


In exchange, on top of all of the above, let me give you a polished, finished ebook, delivered DIRECTLY to your inbox.

I NEED A HERO
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
And That’s YOU! Pledging $10 or more a month puts you in hero territory, I’d say. This is a lot of money to give to an artist, and you are really showing me some serious art-love here. THANK YOU. I'll try to make it worth it. 


You get all of the above, obviously. Plus ...


Every few months, you can opt-in to receive a piece of beautiful physical art! If it fits in an envelope (postcard) or is a beautiful bookish thing (bookmarks!) I can send you - that’s what you’ll get. 

I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE ...
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
BUT I HAVE STRONG FEELINGS FOR YA!


All of the above. And ... Have a signed and dedicated (maybe even doodled upon) paperback edition!

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS EVEN A TIER
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
What is this?!?! This is massive! You'll obviously get all of the above...


- patron-feed, 

- random art surprises, 

- physical signed books, AND I’ll set aside an hour of time a month to chat with you via google hangouts. 

A private AMA for Awesomeness.
