I have a few different goals in mind for this page. The biggest one is to build a community of readers who, like me, crave more diverse stories. I’ve loved the Urban Fantasy genre since I picked up my first Simon R. Green book. The more I read these modern fantasy worlds, the more I wanted to shape my own version that explores experiences of the LGBTQ+ community. We are more than the coming out stories and tragedies that mainstream media tends to focus on.
Past forming a community and sharing my writing, I hope that this page will bring me the financial assistance I need to commit more of my time to create new stories and art. I know that it will take time and effort, but I want to make it to the point where I can fully support myself with these creations. I’m ready to put in the work to make it happen. I don’t want to stop there, though. I’ve created a company, Magill Publishing, and an imprint, Heart Shades Press, that I hope will allow me to help lift other LGBTQ+ voices. That goal is further out than I want it to be, but I believe it is possible. If you decide to become one of my patrons, I will share every step of the way with you.
