I’m Ashley F. Miller – a writer, artist, and musician. If you’re not familiar, Patreon is a way of becoming a patron of the work that I do – I produce cool and interesting things, and you pay me a little bit for each of them; you can even put a monthly cap on how much you’ll pay. Aside from rewards for your contributions, everything I write will remain available on my website and YouTube, donating here is just a way of making sure I have the ability to keep doing what I’m doing, but more and better.

I’m most well known for my writing on Freethought Blogs, but Patreon is a way of support my visual art and music. 
My most popular Uke videos are the theme from Deep Throat and Me and Bobby McGee.

I speak across the US on topics related to feminism, atheism, and communications.  I also speak about pop culture, especially reality television and film, because I worked in that industry for several years on shows like Toddlers & Tiaras and Flipping Out.  My writing focuses on similar topics, and I've been published in the best-selling Women's Studies text Women's Voices, Feminist Visions, alongside writers like Gloria Steinem, bell hooks, Maya Angelou, and Jessica Valenti.

How often do you post?

I aim to post once every other week, which works out to about three times a month. I tend to have some months that are busy and miss some months entirely because of medical issues. 

What great projects are planned

>Paintings about race, gender, power, and pretty colors

>A Comic Book about superheroes not unlike the Power Rangers who saved the world in their teens and are called back into action in their 30s. Saving the world while holding down mediocre jobs and dealing with depression and all the difficulties of being a millennial adult. 

>
I’ve been working on a YA, Terry Pratchettesque Novel ( Enchanted Forest, INC)

>Uke songs to record by David Bowie, Elton John, Coldplay, Monty Python, and Tim Minchin

>More paintings in my series about gender presentation and power

>Makeup tutorials

>And dozens of other ideas, big and small.

Even a little bit of money makes all of these projects much more feasible. I currently make almost nothing from what I do online. My content has gotten over 1.5 million views and hits, but I'm not making much money from it.

What's the dream?

My big dream is to be able to focus on writing and other creative endeavors for a while without having to worry about whether it's feasible to do so.  My smaller dream is simply to be able to keep producing at all.

So if you'd like to support, just click to become a Patron, decide what reward level you’d like to contribute at (even if you could contribute a dollar, that’d make such a big difference!), and join me on this journey of hopefully getting to Make All The Things.

Holy crap, thank you!  Every three months, I will send you a painting (of whatever you request) either digitally or no larger than 144 sq inches on canvas OR record a ukulele song of your choice (subject to ability) and if we're ever in the same town, I will hang out with you in public somewhere and buy you a drink (soda, tea, alcohol, w/e). Plus all the above!

Goals
$27 of $50 per Post
At $50 per post, I will be able to spend an hour doing a live webcast every month.  It could be a jam session on a musical instrument or a return of the Ashley F. Miller Show & Podcast, or just a Q&A with Patrons.
