Thank you so much for supporting my writing! Some days it takes a lot of braining to make the words go, and on those days, my writing is powered by prayer...and coffee. If you enjoy my stories and would like to help me keep the words coming, I would greatly appreciate it! Every bit helps.

In recognition of your support, all current Patrons (of all tiers, including this one) will be named in the Acknowledgments when I publish future books. All tiers also get access to my Discord server, with a special fancy "Patron" label within the chats. :)  (My Discord server is ALWAYS free to join, even if you don't become a Patron -- you can find out more at http://ccrawfordwriting.com/join-my-discord-server)

Chapters and stories will be posted as locked/exclusive posts, where you can leave comments and let me know what you think. I’d love your feedback!

Jump In!

$25
per month
Here’s your chance to learn everything you ever wanted to know about my story worlds, my characters, my writing process, and possibly even my one-eyed cat...and get exclusive CcrawfordWriting swag!

You'll get access to everything from the above tiers, plus you’ll be invited to join me each month for a scheduled group Live Chat with myself and other members of this tier, where we can hang out, chat books, do Q&As, and more.

Plus, you'll get a signed paperback of each future book as it’s published. (Seriously, actual mail! Like, in a stamped package and everything!)
(Note: on average, I publish 1-2 books per year (sometimes more!), but 2020-2021 got a little crazy and slowed my production. If you join this tier and don’t get at least 1 signed paperback from me over the course of a full calendar year that you’re subscribed, reach out to me and I’ll let you choose 1 of my previously-published books for me to sign and mail to you instead.)

And you'll get exclusive CCrawfordWriting patrons-only Loyalty merch (including a sticker, mug, organic tote bag, and t-shirt) sent directly to you every 3 months!

About Crystal Crawford, Author

Hi. I'm Crystal Crawford, and I write stories.  Lots of them -- long ones, short ones, whole book series!  I write fantasy, soft sci-fi, and the occasional YA romance. My elaborate fantasy worlds and quirky characters are fueled by a combination of daydreams, real life shenanigans, and copious amounts of black coffee. 

Here on Patreon, you can get access to behind-the-scenes updates, read exclusive short stories, chat with me, and even read the first drafts of my latest books as I'm writing them!

I love writing series, and currently have a published YA fantasy trilogy, a YA rom-com duology, a co-written sci-fi romantic comedy (with sequel in progress), plus a brand-new paranormal folklore series in the works...and many more books to come!

I'm also a homeschooling mom of four, which keeps my life super interesting. When I'm not scraping art projects off our kitchen table, feeding a baby, or organizing classes, you can usually find me in my office writing, reading, or planning new stories. I love diving into a new story world that's just beginning to take shape!

I love crafting elaborate story worlds, quirky or unusual plot elements, and realistic, memorable characters. My fantasy books tend to be packed with adventure, suspense, and surprises, and it's my goal with every book to deliver a rollercoaster of feels. Reading comments from my readers as they scream about my stories' twists is my favorite.

I'm so glad you're here... I hope you'll stick around and join in the fun!

Goals
$45.34 of $100 per month
The first $100 is like that inaugural dollar bill framed behind the counter at a new restaurant -- something worth celebrating!  When I reach this goal, I'll do a special shout-out post on Patreon and social media to show my appreciation!
