Hi there!

I'm Lorelei Nguyen, commonly known as "Lore". You might know me for the visual novels I've written, or perhaps from social media such as Twitter or Tumblr, where I've been active for a number of years. I've been writing visual novels since 2009 and with your support, I can spend more of my time doing what I love: writing. 

My ultimate goal is to be able to have enough money to move into my own place. Right now I have a full-time job and am working towards furthering my education again, with writing unfortunately taking a bit of a backseat to that. Meeting the higher goals will allow me to take more steps towards becoming independent. 


What do I get for pledging?

You get special behind-the-scenes looks at what I'm working on, much sooner than the general public. My Patreon is my secret development diary! On top of that, I'll post concept art and videos, host livestreams, do Q&A, etc! Probably the most coveted perks are alpha and/or beta access to the games I'm working on. Typically, alpha and beta access are reserved for testers, but if you'd like special sneak peeks without being obligated to give feedback (though of course we'd always love feedback) then pledge to those qualifying tiers and you'll get it! Also, if I open writing or translation (Japanese -> English) commissions, then as a patron you will receive priority/early access to my slots and possibly discounted rates depending on your tier.

New!! All patrons will be able to vote on chapters of Tremolo, a community-interactive fiction serial that will be done through this Patreon!

Each of the different tiers gets various different rewards and perks, so please familiarize yourself with them before pledging. If you have suggestions for other perks or rewards, please let me know!

In Closing

Thank you very much for your time and consideration! tl;dr: if you like what I do and would like to see more of it more quickly, please consider pledging! I promise your money will make a real difference and we'll have lots of fun together!
