💖✨ You're an incredibly important resource in the grand scheme of things. Your $1 may not seem like much, but to me it's amazing, and every single one adds up to something great, just like a field of asteroids coming hurtling towards a spaceship. Well, maybe that's less pleasant, but the point stands. ✨

  • All free access that everyone already gets: new chapters, new art, whatever else I do. This tier is a "thank you" for my posts and a way of supporting me.
You can also use Ko-Fi for the same purpose if you want a one-time tip rather than a recurring one!

About Jessica Nelson Hardy


Because this Patreon has a large focus on free content, there's no set schedule, so hit that free "follow" button to get all the updates I post delivered to your email!

         Farm Hands Episode Index

         "I want to offer my support, but I can't offer any money - what can I do?"

         Multiple things! Hit follow, for one. Comment on sections/episodes. When I announce my writing has been posted to Amazon Kindle, leave a review. 

         If you're here for art: turn my Twitter and Instagram notifications on. Retweet and comment on all my art. Like and comment on my Instagram posts. Follow my Twitch and YouTube channels! Start or keep a conversation going! Thank you! 

         This Patreon contains a lot of free content! I post my writing here in an unedited, alpha state in the hopes of the dopamine rush one might get from comments and participation.

         Unedited episodes/chapters remain on this Patreon until such a time as they're posted on Amazon, edited and in a finished state. At that point, they're removed from here so Amazon doesn't tantrum over it. Those who have been Patrons for longer than six months, or are Tier 4 or upwards will have the ability to download the finished copies of the episodes, rather than having to repurchase on Amazon. 

          Welcome, friends! I'm a Jess of All Trades - an author of queer- and female-dominated speculative fiction (my favorite types being sci-fi and fantasy), an artist, a designer, a freelance editor and Twitch streamer. I'm queer myself, and chronically ill too, so working from home is very important to me. 

          When it comes to writing, I have a great passion for characters and their interpersonal relationships, worldbuilding and conlanging, and I like to try and make the worlds my characters inhabit feel as real as I can - not necessarily realistic, but real, as though you could walk through the crunchy snow in the highest peaks of the tallest mountains if you could just find the right door... 

         I currently have several books published or pending release, and  you can read them here

         As for  my art, I love supernatural or unusual beings (like demons, tree-people, fairies, elves etc) living what one might call a normal or boring life. I'm a big fan of elves in nightclubs, tree-people sipping their morning coffee, and demons acting as security guards, paramedics or rescue parties. 

        I stream under the name  JessicaNH as I haven't yet swapped the username to sixstepsaway and keep putting it off, and I'm a Twitch Affiliate! I can often be found streaming my art and writing, but mostly I'm just hanging out and streaming video games like FTL: Faster Than Light and Prison Architect, working my way through story-based games like The Witcher, or just generally being ridiculous

        As I'm a Jess of All Trades, this Patreon will reflect that. I'll be posting art, design work, random posts and also the writing I do. 

        Generally, fiction posts will be an episode or a chapter, depending on what I'm working on at the time, and will include a PDF and a eBook format for easy reading. The first episode or chapter of everything I work on will be free to all followers, but future installments will be charged for.

        Art will depend what I'm working on at any given moment but may include texture sheets, high res images, models etc for 3D work, and high res images for digital art. 

        If you become my patron, for only $1 a month or more you will get access to my current works in progress as they are (chronologically) completed, before they make it to the indie publishing stage, as well as high resolution images of my artwork. 

      Older episodes/chapters are removed after a certain length of time as they're published on KDP and other sites, so make sure you download anything you don't want to lose! 

       Any time I open art commissions, they'll be opened on Patreon to my patrons several days in advance so you can get in first!

This would be a huge step towards being able to be more self-sufficient. With this I can hire a proper editor and, if necessary, people to make book trailers. This would be a big leap forwards.
