Hello all! I'm S. Qiouyi Lu, a writer, editor, narrator, and translator; I mostly create in the science fiction/fantasy/horror (SFFH) genres, but I've stepped between and across genres as well.

I stand at the intersection of many marginalizations and identities, all of which show up to some degree in my art. Here you'll find queer Asian-American badasses, many of whom probably deal with mental illness and the aftereffects trauma. But my stories are typically hopeful, even if they take you on a rollercoaster of emotions.

Why Patreon?

I am currently freelancing full-time. While this has its benefits—setting my own schedule and having more freedom to manage my healthcare appointments, for example—my income is unstable and varies greatly from month to month. Patreon helps to provide some predictability for me to plan my income and expenses.

What You'll Get

I have a pretty heavy workload of freelance projects, so this Patreon will not be the primary distribution platform for my work—it's mostly a tip jar. But you can expect updates with some behind-the-scenes content, such as drafts, snippets, and sketches. I might also send out chapbooks or other small print rewards every now and then. My primary goal, however, is to just have enough income to support my freelance work, which is usually published in various online and print venues.

Thank you so much for your consideration and patronage! It's an honor to have you in my audience.
