Vanessa North is creating queer fiction to make you sweat, swoon, and swear

patrons

$15
per month
Hello, and thank you for visiting my Patreon! I'm a novelist by trade, but I got my start in short fiction, and it remains my one true love. Patreon is the platform I've chosen to share short fiction with the world. 

Why am I publishing through Patreon? Because I love writing and reading short fiction, and I wanted to explore a different method of publishing shorts outside of the Amazon Kindle/Kindle Unlimited ebook platform.

The stories and flash I publish here will be Patreon-exclusive for a limited time. Each time I accumulate enough stories to make a print anthology, I'll put them out in print and ebook. For one week prior to the on-sale date, all patrons will have access to download the ebook for free. Patrons at the $50 and up levels will also receive a signed print copy of the anthology. 

I decided to do a monthly plan instead of a per story plan because I feel it gives the patrons more control over and input on their patronage. No matter how much you pledge per month, you'll get *all* the stories. You can always change your patronage level at any time, as well as give suggestions and input on future rewards!

I want you to have fun being a patron--so I'm offering some great rewards and I plan to engage socially on this platform as well. Thanks again for joining me!

Check out the video to see me babbling about all this from my bathtub--aka the place in the house with the best light and no chances of children walking in on me.

Curious about what kind of content I'll be publishing here? Check out some of the free stories I have available:

The first Patron-exclusive story is expected to go up here in early September!

Vanessa
