Hi! I'm Valerie, an indie author of New Adult speculative fiction (fantasy, dark fantasy, paranormal, etc.) Welcome to my Patreon page! :)

WHAT IS PATREON?
In a nutshell, Patreon is a kind of crowdfunding platform that allows creators to take pledges from and give rewards to a community of patrons.

WHY PATREON?
Because I need your help.
I wish to offer you—my readers—the best books I can create. In the indie world, that means hiring professionals to add shine to my novels after I've reached the end of my capacity, skill, and knowledge. (For the sake of transparency, you should know that a professional editor can easily demand more $1000 to work on a manuscript. It really is a lot.)
That's where I need your help.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It's easy: patrons (you) pledge money to creators (me) and in return, the creator offers their patrons rewards.
In my case, the pledges range from $1 to $25. I have also decided on monthly pledges instead of the sporadic by-creation option because it is much easier to manage. No surprise withdrawal to throw off your budget! 

WHAT DO EACH PARTY GET?
I get money from your pledges that I reinvest towards my books.
What do you get?
Fiction, early access, extra material, a chance to collaborate with me on a story.
Each tier has its own specific rewards. Also, the higher the pledge, the more rewards you get as you then encompass the rewards comprised in the previous tier(s). (For example, a $10 pledge gets you the $10, $5 and $1 tiers rewards. Neat, huh? ^_^)

SO, WHAT ARE WE BACKING AT THE MOMENT?
At this point, all the money received will be set aside to hire an editor for my upcoming novel Arias in the Silence

Snow Harper is a normal — albeit mute and strange-looking teenager. Happily adopted ten years ago as a child, she now dreams of becoming a world-famous composer. But a walk in Central Park forces a life-changing encounter with a street musician who seems to know something about Snow's origins. Harassed by questions, Snow starts on a quest to discover her roots, but as arias soon rise out of thin air and shadows hunt her, she realizes that her inheritance might be a bit more than she can handle.

Thanks a million for your help. It really means a lot to me because all I do want to release higher quality novels for you all. :)
Thank you so much again! <3 <3

COVER REVEAL!
I have recently lost many hours at work and as a result, I can barely afford my monthly bills. 
Help me reach $200 per month so I can breathe (and oxygenate the creative side of my brain again) and as a thank-you, I will reveal here the cover of my next novel!
(At this time, my next novel should be Book 2 of the Winged Sonata: The Still Symphony.)
