Arbor the Pernicious Writer is leading you into a whole new world of storytelling. As a child, they were armed with a spitfire imagination and they started writing stories in elementary school. They were obsessed with Star Wars, Godzilla, mythology from around the world, and reading anything they could get their hands on. They started to develop a personal series of stories one of which developed into the story they spend the most time on right now: The Kinetics Sequence. In spite of everything that was working against them (including time) they self-published their first book Kinetics: In Search of Willow on Amazon in late 2014. The last five years they’ve been working and re-working its direct sequel Forces: In Search of Power and it’s now slated for release by the end of the year. The middle of last year they started a side project (as more of a personal challenge than anything) writing under the pseudonym Willow Walker. Under that name they wrote and self-published a short sci-fi romance novella called Bounty of Love. They plan to write more sci-fi romance novellas because they are fun and an interesting challenge but everything will take a back burner to the Kinetics Sequence for now. Being a new and untested author is a mountain to climb and climbing a mountain requires a lot of resources. They hope to use this Patreon to help fund the dream. They’re putting a lot of their own time, effort, and money into it but a little help to supplement the dream never hurts also it seems like a great way to get more content out to their fans. Any money earned will be used to fund the following: Audiobooks They love audiobooks. They get to listen to them at work, while driving to and fro, and before bed. It’s just a few steps up from being told a bedtime story – you can’t beat that! Editing Any author worth their salt, water, and weight in gold should know the value of a good editor. Writing is generally a very solitary process, but even when the first draft is done there’s more work to be had. They want to give folks the best content they can and that means paying a good editor for their time and effort. Swag Maybe there’s a level of self-indulgence in this but they’re so taken with the idea of having their characters, book covers, and other randomness on shirts, bookmarks, mugs, stickers, and anything else that people might want to carry around with them. They have ideas for days, enough to keep them occupied for at least ten years and undoubtedly they’ll come up with another ten years’ worth of ideas in the next five (Or less). So join them on this adventure and lets make some stories!
