So I finally got around to setting up a Patreon account. It’s single-tier, pay-what-you-want, and it’s where I’m going to be posting drafts of stories and chapters I’m working on, as well as essays, giveaways, deleted scenes, process posts, Q&As, recipes, mysteries. Above all, if you want to see all theĀ Archivist Wasp-related stuff I’m making as I make it, this is the place for you! There is A LOT MORE I want to do with those characters and those worlds, and since my publication history has been so unorthodox, this is honestly the only way to guarantee you get to see it.

I wanted there to be some content in place for early subscribers, so I launched the campaign with a draft of a brand-new 8200-word story featuring Foster and the ghost, way back in the day when they were still alive and about 15 years old. Since it’s single-tier, anything from $1 (Patreon’s minimum) and up will unlock that story, as well as any and all future content. It was a lot of fun to write. I hope it’s at least half as fun to read.

I know a lot of writers/artists/creators (myself included) who’ve had trouble in the past couple of years with reconciling the escapist nature of their fiction and art with the general awfulness of global current events. I feel that art and fiction and escapism are especially important when things look dire. Not instead of working for change, but in addition to it. Having a breathing space is necessary. This story, at its core, is about that need.

Thank you SO MUCH in advance if you’re able to toss a couple bucks in the jar — you’re helping me get away with writing exactly what I want to write, and for that I’m endlessly grateful. <3
