I am D. Gabrielle Jensen. 

I am a writer.

I was once given the task of coming up with 100 "I am" statements about myself that were not nouns. So "I am a writer" was strongly discouraged. The reasoning was that describing ourselves with nouns is only effective for as long as it applies. If "doctor" or "contractor" or "truck driver" or "soldier" is the only description you give of yourself, what do you become when you no longer desire to or can no longer be that thing?

I am a writer.

I have done many other things - I do many other things. I draw. I make jewelry. I crochet. I design merch - t-shirts, tote bags, wall art...I'm working on figuring out gift wrapping paper. I love music. In another life I played the drums and I sang, but not at the same time. Sometimes at the same time. I am a hair artist and I am a cat mom. - but at the core, at the end of the day, I am a writer. It is the one thing to which I always come back and the one thing I think I will always want to do.



I write.

I write poetry and speculative fiction. I write blogs about my life and online magazine articles about everything and anything I think of. Currently I am writing - haphazardly - for Vocal Media and Thought Catalog, and sometimes using those platforms to help out friends by reviewing or profiling their business and art ventures.



I will write.

I will let you into my world as a writer and the world where my characters exist. You will get backstage VIP access to things the GA audience may never see. You will get to know my characters (almost) as well as I do. You will be able to see their faces and hear their voices, the same way I do. You will see inside their homes and what's hanging on the wall of their cubicles.

You will get stories - some within the universe where I am working, some not, some 100% exclusive to patrons, stories that have NEVER been published before and likely never will be, outside of this forum.

You will get glimpses into my world that no one else ever will. By subscribing at the $45 per month level, you will get physical gifts from me. Some months everyone will get the same gift, other months it will be completely unique, one of a kind. Handwritten poems, drawings, guided journals.

You will get to do the one thing every fan wants to do - be part of my universes. For $75 you can be written into a story. You can be a secondary MC. You can be a villain. You can be a non-speaking townsperson, if that's what you choose (for $75, I recommend you don't choose to be a non-speaking townsperson). You can choose your own name and how you look. If you want your character to be a different gender to the one with which you identify out here in our world, then we'll make you a different gender. Or no gender at all.

If it wasn't totally counter productive, I'd subscribe! So, what are you waiting for? Hit that orange button already!

For less than the cost of a chocolate bar, you get access to my Patrons-only blog content. While the general public is reading about what I'm reading about or getting to know about other authors, you are here, finding out what really makes me tick. Patrons-only blog content will include BTS notes about what I'm working on, sometimes directly, more often indirectly. You will also be privy to sneak peeks into what could be available to you at a higher tier. You will also be acknowledged with a thank you graphic on my social media accounts.

For less than the cost of a good chocolate bar, you get all of that cheap chocolate, plus my shining face once a month by way of video blogs. I might take you on a tour of a place that has inspired me or I might read a poem or two. You just never know. And you won't until you sign up.

Forty five dollars each month affords you physical rewards, at my discretion. Every person who pledges at this level will receive a handmade thank you card followed by a physical gift every month. It may be a signed paperback, it may be a handwritten poem, it may be other swag (buttons, magnets, that sort of thing). But it will be a thing you can touch and it will show up in your mail.

Sign Up Reward


When you sign up at the $75 level, you will receive a handmade thank you card as well as a small swag bag that will vary based on when you sign up, but will include copies of all of my available publications at the time. 


Three Month Reward


After maintaining your pledge for three months, we will arrange a video chat (What's App, Google Hangouts, Zoom) to discuss how you would like to see yourself portrayed in a future work of fiction. This can include everything from physical appearance and name of the character to alignment and relevance to the story.


Six Month Reward


At the end of six months at the $75 level, you will receive your character's introductory chapter in hard copy. This will likely be the chapter in which your character first appears and may change before final publication. 


When the story is completed, you will receive an exclusive autographed hard cover copy of the book as well as four additional paperback copies for friends and families.

Goals
$6 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 in monthly pledges, I will offer a scholarship. Patrons at all paid levels will be given the opportunity to apply for a gift of up to $150 to pay for career advancement. Use it to purchase your next ISBN, pay for a year of Skillshare, even put it toward a new camera lens.
