Thank you so much for visiting my Patreon page! 

My name is Sarah, and I'm the author of Firebrand--the first in a four book YA series following a pair of teenage abolitionists through the American Civil War. Firebrand, book one, takes place during the summer before the war began during a dangerous period in Texas history known as the Slave Insurrection Panic of 1860. This last year I finally released its sequel, Paladin, about a young woman who enlists in secret in the Union army. You can watch either of the trailers here on my YouTube channel.

It's been almost four years since I ventured into this unfamiliar territory of self-publishing, and I've been learning all of the joys and challenges of the indie author life ever since! Sometimes it's tough, balancing a full time job while trying to set up book signing events, doing online marketing, not to mention writing! And all the while I have so many other ideas: short stories, accompanying nonfiction, book club guides, writing workshops, to name a few. I'm also hard at work on the next big project--an audio book podcast for the series!

Here's the long and the short of it--as much fun as this has been so far, it's tough to do it alone. And there are a lot of upfront costs for much of this (ordering books, getting booth space at events, online ads) that make it difficult for me to branch out and reach more readers. So here is where I humbly ask for your support. 

If you can't support this way, that's ok! Be sure to follow me on social media, or sign up for my newsletter on my website, and just help spread the word. Recommend Firebrand to a friend. Or just send me a note of encouragement! I could always use more of that. 

Thank you for stopping by. And a huge thank you for all my supporters--I couldn't do this without you!
