Renincy is creating stories for comics

Hi, my name is Renincy Sommers. You may know me from my epic sleep deprived states at Comic Cons all through Europe. Usually I’m flanked by my partner in crime, the incredibly talented Els Deckers. Together we make comics for which I’m the scenarist.  

Many people consider me the voice of reason, but that’s only until they give me a pen and paper… My true nature… is completely weird! Luckily, weirdness is an advantage for a writer.

Regardless of how much coffee you drink, how many cats you own, how often you've been told that you live in a fantasy world (an EPIC fantasy world, I must say!) and how you can geekgasm over anything that has pages in it... that still does not disqualify you from being a writer.

On the contrary! You aren't even allowed into the writers bar unless you prove that you can hold your coffee. If not, you're served your writers block cold! With a lemon part on the side. Mercy on the poor souls who went through this horror!

Why Patreon?

I can't do this on my own. Getting my work out there means that I have to first pay for (cover) art, editors, printing, promotion, etc. It's time to step out of the shadow and allow these stories to become self-published works.

Although I do a lot of writing for Els, my work is invisible until she does her part of the magic. Many people let me know that they’re not just interested in the art, but in the writing as well. It would be great if I could share that part of making comics.

Not just the comics that I create together with Els, but my other projects as well. It would be weird if I used her Patreon to share projects that she is not a part of. :P

Apart from the perfectly reasonable arguments for having a Patreon, I have an ulterior motive… The idea of being able to buy unlimited coffee during Comic Cons grew too irresistible to.. yeah, resist. I couldn’t fight it any longer. Don’t judge, we all have our weaknesses! (Right, cupcakes?)

Will patrons need life insurance?

Yes. I will try to break your heart again and again, until it can’t be mended. Hopefully your insurance company is up for that. 😉 I love to create characters and worlds that feel alive. If you become a Patreon, I’m going to do everything in my might to draw you into my worlds.

In return, I’ll create adventures that you wouldn’t miss for the world! You’ll even have a say in the type of stories that I create, you get to help me design characters, suggest names, etc.
I will share my early drafts with you. Your feedback helps me to become a better writer, your support helps me to bring stories into the world that would otherwise have no other destiny than as dust collectors.

Let's all unite against dust collectors! I'm counting on you!

Tiers
"I'm not an addict, I can stop anytime I want"
$1 or more per month
If you support a minimum of $1.- you receive access to my Patreon-only posts and to the Facebook group. 
"Don't stop me now!"
$5 or more per month
We're having such a good time! You will receive the rewards of the previous tier, but you get extra power. I will allow you to help me decide what characters should look like, how they should be (re)named, or how a story will unfold. 
"I just can't stop loving you"
$10 or more per month
Every month I will select one patron who supports $10 or more. Are you the lucky one? I will write a single page of story for free. This can be anything you wish. Be it fanfiction, a short with you as the main character, poetry, scenario, etc. Anything that makes you happy!

Of course you'll also receive all the perks of the previous tiers. Because the love can't be stopped.
"Stop... HAMMERTIME!"
$50 or more per month only 7 left
Patrons who support $50 (for at least 3 months) will receive a personal acknowledgement in the Final Word of every project that I self-publish in this timeframe.
They will receive a free copy of every book or e-book that they are acknowledged in.
Also, they receive a live Q&A session with me of 60 to a maximum of 90 minutes.
All the perks of the previous tiers still apply.   
"Don't stop the party! I aint gonna stop until I'm drunk."
$100 or more per month only 3 left
Do you want me to coach you on something you are writing? On top of all the previous perks, I will spend 30 to a max of 60 minutes each month to help you amp up the awesomeness! 
"You can't stop the queerest of the queer!"
$500 or more per month only 1 left
What do you want of me? My soul??

You get to choose a new project for me to write on. Novel or screenplay. Any genre you wish. You can tell me whatever you have in mind for the plot and characters. I will work to make this into whatever you want it to be, for at least 10 hours each month.

If you want me to have it turned into a comic or a graphic novel, we'll have to work out what extra fee would be required to hire the illustrator that you desire.

All previous perks still apply. 
Goals
$18 of $50 per month
Reaching this goal means that things are getting visual! For this amount I can afford the creation, digital editing and printing of 1 low-budget comic page. Once we hit this goal, there will be at least one finished comic page every month!
