Hey there! I'm Maddi, an aspiring author and filmmaker. I decided to make a Patreon account so that I can get a little money from doing what I love and get my work out into the world. On the right, you'll find all my patron rewards for each level, and on the left are my goals. As of right now, I have the donations set to monthly, although in the future I may change it to per creation, depending on how much I'm writing and creating.
I like to write science fiction and fantasy, for the most part, although I do also enjoy writing realistic fiction that deals with current topics that are important to me. Short stories are my forte, since they're what I have the most time and patience for, although I have a few novel-length ideas stewing in my mind. When it comes to videos, I'm still not sure what I'll have time to make, but I would like to do cooking videos and book review videos, as well as original short films.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my page, and I hope you decide to support me!

This is the first level of giving, and I call it the Seed Patron level. Just like a seed, a dollar doesn't seem like much, but it can grow to have a much bigger impact. As a thank you, you'll have a spot in my acknowledgements at the end of my books and a $1 discount when buying any of my published materials. You'll also have access to short, two or three sentence teasers for each short story or chapter I post.

This will be Sapling Patron level, with all the same rewards as the Sprout level but with these exceptions: you'll receive either a $5 discount on my published materials or one copy free each time I publish something (depending on the price of printing); you'll also receive paragraph-length teasers for short stories and chapters, as opposed to the two-to-three-sentence teasers.

My Bud Patron level! Y'all are the same as Sapling, except that you'll receive a free copy of all printed materials (in the rare case that printing will be over $10 a book, you'll receive a $10 discount). You'll also get early access to all short stories I write, along with paragraph-length teasers for chapters.

Fruit Patrons will have all the perks of Flower level plus the option of receiving two copies of published materials (one signed, one not), two-page teasers for chapters, and may request a poem or short story to be written for them (only one request per month, though, and they'll need to message me to discuss parameters for requests).

Birch Trees! Here's the total write-up of the incentive you've got to be a Birch Tree level patron: acknowledgement in all published works, two free copies of every published work (signed), early access to all poems, short stories, and chapters (not to mention all the teasers I put out), one personalized poem or short story request per month, AND the option to be included/mentioned as a character in my books (major or minor character to be discussed).
Goals
$0 of $135 per month
I'm going to be setting aside a month of time in order to do my own personal 50,000-words-in-a-month challenge. That should be enough to complete a first draft of a novel, which I'll self-publish. The above amount is what I believe I would need in order to print ten copies of the novel for myself. This would, of course, just be the first stepping stone towards more months of writing and editing.
