Me
Lee Cope, word nerd and hopefully-professional writer.

I write fantasy stories about people making questionable life choices.

I've got a background in getting way too excited about academic classes, and some pretty weird ideas about how fantasy and literary themes interact, and I'm here on Patreon to try and put as many of those into practice as possible.

At the moment, I've only dipped my toes into blogging and serials, and I have a traditional novel on the horizon, too.
But if you stick around, expect adventures in non-linear storytelling, transmedia storytelling, collaborative storytelling, gaming, podcasts, and anything else I can justify using to make a narrative.

Plus, there will always be just plain old good yarns.

So if you decide to pledge and help me out, thank you so much! It's great to have you on the journey, and to help me make my plans into reality.


My Goals
Like most writers on here, I'm trying to find a way to make a living out of sitting in front of my computer and making up fun lies. Having a day job doesn't leave a lot of time for writing, let alone all the auxiliary things I do -- putting together audiobooks, blog posts, marketing, my podcast work with Liberation Industries, and so forth.

I'd also like to be able to get out more and meet the people who actually read my stuff -- that means getting to conventions. That means travel. Travel means money. And time off a day job. And, well ... everything else.

Ultimately, if I get up to $1000 a month here, I'll be able to get to more conventions in more varied and interesting locations.
If I start hitting the $2000 range, well, that's when I start looking at quitting work to do this full-time, producing more content for you, and spending more hours of quality time with my cat. Win-win-win.

After that, well, we'll see how things go. The more money I have, the more resources I have for new and interesting projects, after all.

I honestly don't know why you're doing this or how to express the gratitude I feel.


All previous tiers included.


At this tier, every three months, I'll get on a Google Hangout or Skype chat with you, talk about my writing, upcoming books, answer questions, or just chat about life, the universe and everything for an hour or so.

I'm limiting this tier (probably optimistically) because I do have only so much time in the day.
