"Bring back the patronage system!" I've often said (I'm a medievalist by training).  And now, with Patreon, we can!  The chief difference is that instead of my being only one person's pet author/scholar, I can draw smaller amounts of support from lots of people--including, I hope, from you.

I'm a freelance translator and editor, independent historical fiction author, and adjunct professor of English online at the Baptist College of Florida.  I currently have four novellas in print.  Three are in my steampunk series:  Loyal Valley: Assassination, Loyal Valley: Bystanders, and Loyal Valley: Captives.  The fourth book in the series, Loyal Valley: Diversion, is already in progress.  I also have one book, Look Behind You, in a guns-and-Sidhe historical fantasy series.  (These links go to Amazon, but all four books are also available from online retailers like Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, and the Apple iBookstore.)

The trouble is, the more time I have to spend scraping together a living, the less time I have to research and write.  My overarching goal in asking for your support is to gain the funding I need to be able to focus my time and energy on teaching and writing, getting my books published faster, and also refining my living history presentation.  Not only do my calligraphy pieces draw attention and help me sell books, but they also help me educate visitors on some of the opportunities an educated maiden lady like myself would have had on the frontier.  And I learn a lot from my fellow reenactors at such events, too.

Funds I raise here on Patreon will go toward:
- My living expenses
- Cover art (and possibly additional artwork for omnibus extras or for patron rewards)
- Hard-copy inventory for events
- Set-up fees for hardcover omnibus collections
- Audiobook commissions
- Advertising and postage for Goodreads giveaways
- Supplies for my living history demonstrations
- Research materials and travel

And if y'all are really especially generous, I might be able to hire some help!
$18.15 of $600 per month
At $600/mo., my living expenses will be covered during the school year, allowing me to focus only on teaching and writing.
