About Rachel (Kalanadi)

Hello! I'm Rachel, and I have a YouTube channel called Kalanadi where I talk about books. I've been making BookTube videos - mostly reviewing science fiction and fantasy books - since November 2014. It's a thing. I'm not sure how it became a thing, but it is!

Joining the BookTube community online changed my life. Making videos is personally fulfilling, and talking to people and making friends on a regular basis is awfully good for my mental health.

After years of treating BookTube as only a hobby -- and trying very hard to never let it become "work" -- I've decided that my channel needs to be a little more financially sustainable. I read hundreds of books each year. Quite a few of them I purchase myself. It gets... expensive. More so than I thought, actually!

So: To the point. I love BookTube. I will continue doing it for as long as it's fun and not stressing me out (see: mental health). I never need it to pay for itself. But it would be nice to take some of the financial edge off of the book buying, and especially the activities that I've become much more involved in since launching my channel. The big one is, of course, WorldCon -- the annual World Science Fiction Convention. I want to go to WorldCon every year if I can because it's THE convention for me and it's where I get to see lots of my bookish friends from around the world. I also have had the pleasure of meeting some of my channel subscribers there too, which is unexpected and delightful!

Therefore, this Patreon is for anyone who enjoys my YouTube content and wants to support me in making more videos and making it possible to go WorldCon, wherever in the world it happens to be hosted next.

There are only two tiers and I'm keeping it simple:
$1 per month, you get my thanks and access to the Patreon-only feed. (To be honest up front: I am not sure how much I will post there, but if I do -- you get to be in on the surprise!).

$2 per month, you get the same thing as the $1 tier, plus you get your name mentioned in the credits at the end of every BookTube video I make.
