Support Lilly Avalon on Patreon

Hello lovelies!

As I mentioned in my last post, I started a Patreon account. For those unfamiliar with Patreon, let me explain what it is.

Patreon is a website where creators like artists and writers are supported by their fans/friends. The creators post content (drawings, excerpts from writing, etc) and then Patrons (their fans/friends) pay a certain amount per month to view this content. It's really a brilliant thing to be able to support a creative friend in their endeavor to become successful.

I decided to get one going this spring and see what happens. I haven't had much of a chance to post as many things as I'd like to, but I'm working on getting more content available. As of right now I have several things for the monthly $1 and $2 levels, and a handful of things for the rest. It took awhile for me to work out the details of what I have to offer for which level, but I think I've finally gotten that figured out.

Are you interested in what I'm offering on there? Well, here's a list of all the tiers and what you can get if you sign up to be my Patron:

$1 level
• Monthly updates, early cover reveals, poems, and tiny teasers from a WIP

$2 level
• Essays on writing, authoring, and randomness

$3 level
• Longer snippets from my fiction WIP

$4 level
• Character/town naming and page long excerpts from a WIP

$5 level
• Full unedited chapter from a WIP and occasional swag envelopes

$6 level
• A monthly positive note, 25% off Etsy code to my shop

$8 level
• Monthly Q&As and 25% off PA work through Sunrise Author Services

$10 level
• Named in acknowledgements and an occasional bubble mailer of swag

Every level also includes the perks of the levels under it. So if you choose to do the $3 level, you'll also receive everything from the $1 and $2 levels, too. If you'd like to know more details of what I'm sharing on there, please take a look at this page.

That's all for today! I'll be sharing more stuff all through July on the blog, including pictures from the Glass City Author Event and the Blue Water Author Event I went to last weekend. Plus, other random news.

Don't forget to make sure you're subscribed to my newsletter because there's a new one coming out this weekend that includes a giveaway!

Hello lovelies!

How are you? I've missed you bunches! <3 <3 <3 As promised, this is a long overdue blog post coming your way. I'll give you an overview of a few things happening, then I'll go into detail on them in future posts this month and throughout the summer.

As you can see, I got the new blog design! Isn't it gorgeous? I think it fits in well with my style. It's easy for me to manage as well, which is a bonus. The old style just wasn't working for me anymore. It was nice, and I did like it, but I needed a change.

In my last post, I shared my real name and a picture of myself. Much has happened since then. For starters, I'm now married! Kyle and I tied the knot at the courthouse on January 13th this year. Then we moved to a new apartment the beginning of February and have been trying to organize all our stuff in the limited space that we have. That's been... quite the nightmare. Ha! But we're getting there. We're actually hoping to get a house in the near future (1-2 years), so that'll solve the problem fast.

As far as my writing goes, it's been slow. Minimal. I dabbled with a winter novella end of last year and had to set it aside because I didn't have enough free time to work out the kinks. I published a poetry compilation under my married name in April. And recently I've decided a story idea from a few years ago should be my next project. I don't want to jinx it because I haven't had the chance to write out a detailed outline (which this one definitely needs), but I'm pretty sure this one will be my next one. I'm hoping to have more information on it soon.

I also started a Patreon and a Ko-Fi for myself. On the Patreon, there are several tiers for patrons to choose from which include all sorts of goodies from me from current and past writing, as well as tips and positive notes. Some tiers also include discounts on my personal assistant services through Sunrise Author Services and my Etsy shop. Also, a few include occasional swag and paperbacks as a bonus.

I'll be attending the Blue Water Author Event in Port Huron, Michigan on June 24th this month, so I'll definitely be sharing pictures and fun stuff from that. I also want to share stuff from the Glass City Author Event that I attended last October (which I'll be attending this coming October, too). So be sure to look out for that post!

Anyways, that's the overview of the latest with Lilly. I hope you all are doing well and I look forward to chatting with you guys more soon!

It's been too long since I last blogged...

Hello lovelies!

I am just now realizing that I haven't blogged since last September. How is that even possible??? All I know is I'm long overdue for an update on here, which I will have for you soon. I'm in the process of updating the blog design and don't want to have "the latest" end up being hard to read because there are random changes happening when you click on it.

I'm hoping to get the new template installed soon and then you'll be able to find out ALL THE THINGS Lilly Avalon.

In the meantime, you all take care and have a wonderful day!!
