Chelsea M. Cameron is a New York Times/USA Today Best Selling author from Maine, who now lives and works in Boston. She's a red velvet cake enthusiast, obsessive tea drinker, vegetarian, former cheerleader and world's worst video gamer. When not writing, she enjoys watching infomercials, singing in the car, tweeting (this one time, she was tweeted by Neil Gaiman) and playing fetch with her cat, Sassenach. She has a degree in journalism from the University of Maine, Orono that she promptly abandoned to write about the people in her own head. More often than not, these people turn out to be just as weird as she is.

My intention with creating this Patreon was to have a place to show you my new work (including first chapter looks and exclusive teasers), queer essays, posts about writing and publishing, random musings, and writing inspiration and coaching.
Here's how it works:
You get the SAME CONTENT for every tier, so if you don't have a lot of money, that's okay! After one week, all content will be available for anyone to read, whether they are a Patron or not. I wanted to make this more accessible for more people, so if you have more to give, you can, but if you don't, you still get everything!
Every single pledge means the world to me, no matter how small.

Goals
$195 of $200 per month
Okay, y'all voted and when I get to $200 per month, I'll post the discarded first chapter of my f/f fantasy novel. It's probably pretty bad. I haven't looked at it in a while. I scrapped it and started over. Please don't judge me. BUT I'LL POST IT IF I MUST! *UPDATE* I now have two rejected first chapters, and I'll post them BOTH.
