Join My Patreon!

Starting October 1st, my Patreon is live!

I know I have tried this in the past, but my problem as always been going in with an overly complicated plan that requires far more work than what I am capable of doing while working a full-time day job.

This time, I’m simplifying it to make it more fun for everyone. With only three tiers to choose from, it simplifies things and the main purpose of the Patreon is to fun commissions by amazing artists for covers and interior illustrations for the webnovel projects I share on Voyce.Me. Those projects will still be free to read, but will update far more frequently on Patreon.

So what are the tiers? Check them out! (Please note that all prices are in USD)

The Early Access Alliance :: $5

Includes early access to all webnovel chapters, updated weekly. Public access will only be every other week.

Voyce.Me allows readers to sponsor stories they enjoy on a monthly basis, the minimum being $5. By supporting the Patreon instead, you gain access to more chapters for the same price!

The Exclusive Originals Club :: $10

At this level, you’ll be able to read exclusive original works from short stories to serialized novellas that will not be posted or shared elsewhere unless put together for self-publication.

The work available at this tier will be for a wide range of genres and audiences, with any relevant content warnings at the top of each post.

The Scrap Squadron :: $15

This is a special tier. Every writer has their little scrap file where they have toyed with ideas that didn’t go anywhere but they can’t bring themselves to get rid of those snippets. At this level, I share these scenes I couldn’t help but write, that clawed their way out of my brain but didn’t turn into anything more. These scraps will be annotated.

More importantly though, members of the Scrap Squadron will get daily access to my NaNoWriMo progress throughout November!

Right now you can read the prologue plus two chapters of each of my current webnovel projects on Voyce.Me or on Patreon for free, and check out the schedule I have planned for the month of October! I truly hope to have fun with this platform and to truly fall in love with sharing my writing like I used to.

Fun with Ahsoka Tano

Yesterday was a wonderful day here in Toronto. The weather was cool, I spent the day with my best friend, and – better yet – I got to meet one of my favourite Star Wars characters, Ahsoka Tano!!

her-universe-lego-dress.jpgI have adored the Her Universe clothes line from the moment I first heard of it, and during a fashion show livestream I watched from SDCC, I died when I learned that the one making all the sure cool Ahsoka clothing was Ahsoka herself!! Ashley Eckstein is such a bundle of joy and nerdiness I’ve wanted her to come to Toronto for ages now. Any Clones Wars or even Rebels fans know how important Ahsoka is and how strong she is as a character. Her development through five seasons of one show and then her several appearances in the other mean the world to me. So when Ashley posted on Instagram she was coming to the Eaton Centre, I couldn’t say no.

The reason she was coming was to promote her new book, It’s Your Universe: You Have The Power To Make It Happen. Flipping through it in line, the book is part autobiography and part inspirational guide to making your dreams come true. It’s about showing how someone who has been told nothing but “No” or “You can’t do that” can still be a success and achieve dreams others felt impossible. It can be for children or for adults because at the end of the day, we could all use being told to never give up no matter how impossible our dreams my seem.

The signing itself was held in the Eaton Centre’s Hot Topic (a dark place I haven’t set foot in in ages) and felt to take forever, but for once I didn’t mind waiting in line in a store that was a thousand degrees. No, I’m serious. Ashley – and surprise guest E.K. Johnston – were taking their time and talking to every single fan that was there. She was asking people who their favourite character was, why they came to see her, if they liked Rebels or Clone Wars better, and then thanking every single fan for taking time out of their day to come down. Not only that, but E.K. and Ashley were also taking pictures with everyone.

It was probably one of the best book signing experiences of my life and I am still so happy I got to meet Ashley Eckstein while decked out in Star Wars everything. (She even complimented my Mud Trooper hat from the Smuggler’s Bounty Solo box)

PS. – I had already had the honour of meeting E.K. Johnston when I was at March Toronto Comic Con, but it was so nice to see her again. She’s a lovely person and I always love hearing authors and celebrities geek the hell out over things. I love her.
