About Everyn Kildare



Greetings!

I am the author commonly known as Everyn Kildare, and I write fantasy novels. I have also been known to write unusual and experimental short stories and serialized fiction pieces under the name "Wicked Red". While I no longer use that pen name as such, I have kept the moniker for my short story and serialized fiction projects to distinguish them from my other works.

The Wicked Red Serials project was originally a series of interconnected short stories (serialized fiction ranging from 10,000 - 25,000 words each episode) that I started in 2015. Each episode has its own complete story arc but weaves into a longer narrative that spans an entire season. From time to time I also spin out random one-off short stories that have no viable means to be shared... so I'd like to share them here.

While it was fun to write and release a new episode every few weeks, it wasn't profitable, and it was eating up time I needed for longer projects. Selling the episodes on Amazon at 99 cents each (due to their short length,) I was only pocketing 35 cents a sale, and considering the time producing the episodes took out of my novel writing (which pays better, though not by much) I had to put the entire project on hold.

So, here I am, hoping maybe the Patreon format will give my serials and short stories a new life and a place to call home.



- This Patreon Thing and How It Works -

I'm going to be honest... I find the idea of patronage so EXCITING!!! For centuries artists and writers had patrons who supported them, so they could focus on creating new and beautiful things for the community.

  • Shakespeare was patroned.
  • Michelangelo was patroned.
  • Chaucer was patroned.
  • DaVinci was patroned.

Pretty much any prolific artist you can think of, up until recent history, had patrons who financially backed them so they could continue to create. Creating was their job. Many of the most famous paintings, plays and artwork we currently have may not have been possible if the artists hadn't had people supporting their work while they created it.

The point is, if you find an artist or author you like, the best thing you can do is find a means to support them so they can continue making the things you love.

If you like the Patreon model, go for it! Click the button and join the patronage! Even a dollar or two is appreciated and helpful. I will be forever grateful and will make the most awesome things I can to show my appreciation.

If, on the other hand, these sorts of things seem iffy, confusing or unfair to you for any reason, you can instead support the artist by buying the work they already have for sale, just like you normally would.

Or help spread the word about what they're doing! Leave reviews so other people stumbling upon their work decide to support them too. Help them reach a broader audience by sharing their social media and blog posts. There are many ways to help an artist or writer keep going - this is just one of the many ways to show them support and let them know you appreciate what they're creating and sharing with you.

Spread the love around, you know?


- Here's The Deal -

As a "Thank You" to those who help me month after month, I will also periodically offer advanced copies of my work before publication, behind the scenes content, other non-writing creations, occasional freebies and contests, deleted scenes, and any other fun things I can throw in to show my gratitude for becoming my patron. I'm always working on a project, even when I'm not socially visible.

I'd love to do even more, I just need some help.

Thanks for reading.
Much love and appreciation,



- What I'm Offering -

I will be posting scenes from my current project throughout the month. The finished story will be released for sale usually when it is completed, and Patreon Patrons will be given their free digital copy at that time.

Patrons of ALL TIER LEVELS will be sent the same posts, regardless of the amount of their contribution. However, Higher Tiered Patrons retain access to content from previous months that I archive after the story has been officially released.

Why do you all get the same thing?
Because I'm just glad you're supporting the stories, even at the lowest Tier. When it comes to this form of patronage, I'd rather let YOU decide if you think the work is worth more than the pocket change it currently earns me. ALL PATRONS will be thanked in the Acknowledgements of the Season Anthology when it is published in appreciation for their support of this project. Without you, it would still be collecting dust, sad and lonely in the corner of my office. THANK YOU!!!
