Patreon Updates

Hey there lovelies!

I’ve been working super hard to revamp my Patreon goals and rewards pages so now when you check out my Patreon everything is up to date! If you don’t already know, Patreon is a wonderful website dedicated to creators! Here, you can pledge your support (and gain my undying love and gratitude) to my art and creative passions!

Patreon has helped me to live off of my art since working a full-time job while going to school is a bit unrealistic for my mental health. As some of you may know, I do suffer from PTSD and bipolar disorder. This makes it rather difficult to work in a typical work-place environment (although I am putting in multiple applications a day; I’m just not receiving any calls back yet). But Patreon has helped me in so many ways; not only financially. It’s helped me to realize that there are lovely people out there (yes I’m talking directly to YOU) who care about my creative passions and are willing to support them! That alone is such a gift.

So, without further ado, let me tell you what becoming a patron means for you!

$1 per month: A personalized shout-out on my blog and my twitter feed, access to all of my other social media accounts, and access to the patron-only feed where I run polls and post other goodies for you lovelies. And, of course, my undying love and gratitude.

$2 per month: Previous tier access and my love and gratitude multiplied by two (that’s a whole lotta love) (kudos if you got my Led Zeppelin reference becasue I think I’m funny).

$5 per month: Previous tier access, discounts on my editing services and on my Etsy shop, and access to my personal vault where I have never before seen writings and half thoughts.

$10 per month: Previous tier access and a unique commission! This means you’ll get a unique story, poem, or fan fiction written just for you. This can be any sort of subject matter or have your own original characters! the sky’s the limit!

$15 per month: Previous tier access and a unique, wood-burned crystal box with crystals picked intuitively just for you!

$20 per month: Previous tier access, access to the first drafts of my letter for my book, and a custom order off my Etsy shop!

$50 per month: Previous tier access and a copy of the first published edition of my novel!!!

All reward tiers gain access to the previous tier meaning if you pledge $20 per month you receive a personalized shout out, access to my writing vault, discounts on my editing services and my Etsy shop, a unique commissioned story, a wood-burned crystal box, AND a custom order from my Etsy shop! That’s a whole lot of goodies and, of course, as always, my undying love and gratitude!

So, if you’d like, you can check out my Patreon page and start receiving all these goodies today!

Love and light,

About the Author || Commissions

Hello lovelies,

I just wanted to create this quick post so that every one could get to know me a little bit better and so that I could share with you about my writing commissions!

My name is Megan Marie and I am a 20 year old student, writer, creator, and cat mom. I am a junior in college working towards a double major in Literary Studies and Sociology. I absolutely adore writing. Nothing has ever made as much sense as when I have a pen in my hand, allowing myself to write freely and openly. For the past three years I’ve been bouncing ideas around for a large-scale project and I’ve finally penned an outline for my first novel! It’s entitled Crooked Letters to Crooked Lovers and it tells the story of navigating life and relationships after abuse. It’s a very personal project, very close to my heart, and it has taken a long time to find the courage to put those words on paper and share them with the rest of the world.

I also craft a lot, too! I hand-make unique jewelry and dream catchers and other witchy essentials. Crafting and creating things by hand became another very important aspect of my life, next to my writing, when I became very ill during my last year of high school.

Chronic illness is a part of my life, it’s part of who I am. It’s not always the part I’d like to define myself as such as with “writer” or “student” or “creator”; but it’s a major part of who I am and it influences my day to day life. Writing and crafting are things that help me cope, help me live, and I love being able to share my journey with others.

So a little bit more about me in the present and about my commissions! I am currently in-between jobs and struggling to maintain an active presence in my schooling due to my mental illnesses. Right now, I am living with parents and trying to find a way to work until school begins again in the fall. My goal is to save up enough money to move up north to Humboldt County with my lovely datemate and my precious furbaby! So, as of right now, I’m opening up my writing commissions!

Prices for writing commissions are as follows:

  • Short story (~1000 words): $15
  • Short story (~2000 words): $20
  • Poem (2 stanzas): $15
  • Poem (4 stanzas): $20
  • Acrostic poem (1 word/name): $10
  • Acrostic phrase poem (1 phase/sentence): $25
  • Prose piece (300-500 words): $10

If you like to more information you can email me at piles.papers@gmail.com or simply leave a comment below!

I also do freelance editing work at PilesofPapers on Etsy!
And if you’d like to check out some of my crafts they can be found at CosmicWitchery on Etsy, as well!

If you would like to support me and my writing I also have a Patreon account where I share updates about my novel – I’d love for you to check it out. And if you like my writing and my blog and all of my free content; I would greatly appreciate if you would consider supporting me on Ko-fi – I truly do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Love and light,
