About Shin Shimon

I'm a writer of fantasy, historical, and science fiction. You can (or will soon be able to) find my writing on FictionPress, Wattpad, Royal Road, and my personal blog. My current projects include a historical series about first contact between alien cultures, and a fantasy novel about investigation and intrigue in a sprawling imperial capital.

With more donations, I can devote more time to writing. I'll be able to finish my current projects faster, and start working on more projects at the same time. In the planning stages are stories set in a fantasy world undergoing asymmetrical industrialization, and several SF stories.

Patron of the Arts
per month
Every little bit helps, and even if you can only give $1 a month, you'll be doing a lot to help me out.
Bigger Patron of the Arts
per month
If you can give me the equivalent of one cup of coffee a month, I promise to use it to more productive ends than buying a cup of coffee.

I'll also send you a monthly newsletter that will give you sneak peeks of what I'm working on,  and when you can expect to read it in full.

Even Bigger Patron of the Arts
per month
If you can give up the equivalent of one fast food combo meal a month, I promise to spend it on something better than fast food. Probably Thai or Korean.

I'll also upgrade your monthly newsletter, which will contain a section where I go into detail about various topics - essentially a private blog post. Topics will range from the inspiration behind some of my stories, to background information about their settings, to general thoughts on writing and world-building.

You realize that the highest calling in the world is art - and even if you don't pursue it yourself, you can at least pay others to. In recognition of your refined taste and intellect, each month I'll send you early drafts of my works in progress, and respond to any critiques or suggestions you have about them.

The reason I write (because you cover a significant fraction of my cost of living). I'll write a short story based on one of your prompts or ideas each month.
$0 of $250 per month
A good first milestone on the way to writing full time. It'll provide a lot of motivation as we keep moving forward.
