A Letter To My Patrons (And Anyone Who Reads This)

As you have already know, Patreon has decided to implement certain changes that will affect creators and patrons.  If you are on social media (Twitter, FB), you would have seen and heard the outcry from creators and patrons. The worst hit are the patrons who donate $1. Such actions from Patreon will be harmful in the long run as creators and patrons are both affected, with creators with smaller backer bases having their earnings massively cut.

I am taking this opportunity to thank all my Patrons. Without you, I won’t be able to pay my medical fees and expenses that suddenly appear from the left field. Without you, I won’t be able to write short stories and produce an urban/contemporary fantasy anthology set in Singapore. Likewise, I won’t be able to draw more Mid-Autumn Mice. 

I am angry at Patreon for taking such drastic measures and I will not hold it against you if you decide to withdraw your patronage. We are all struggling in this already-strained global economy and Patreon’s actions are not helpful.

2018 is the year I was actually planning to use to complete two contracted books to a publisher. Before the changes, I initially thought that if I have at least $250, I would have some peace of mind to sit down and write the books. 2018 is also the year I wanted to make Umbel & Panicle, the lit mag I founded, viable as in I want to pay my poets.

Patreon’s news changed all that.

However, you can still support me in many ways.

I have PayPal whereby I think you can make it a re-occurring payment. Likewise, you can just type the sum after JoyceChng/.

You can also Buy Me A Kofi where I will sometimes set goals for certain expenses.

You can buy my ebooks at my Gumroad where the proceeds will go direct to me. You can get my print and ebooks from Amazon and Createspace.

Lastly, as I also freelance as an editor and sensitivity reader, I offer my services at Vellum & Ink.

You can also get updates from me at my blog/website A Wolf’s Tale.

Once more, thank you so much for being there with me during my journey.

A Gratitude Post

First of, massive thanks, gratitude and ❤️ for folks who donate, who read, who listen to me rant without running away.

Second, grateful hugs to the folks (you know who you are) who take the time to DM.

YOU are my community.

Diary Of War

My short story Diary Of War is now live in Anathema Magazine’s third issue.

“Perhaps, one day, my people, my mother, would accept me back.

Perhaps, one day, I would accept myself.”

Get Me To ICFA 2018

A Wolf's Tale

I have started crowdfunding for ICFA 2018.

It has always been my dream to attend ICFA, a professional conference by International Association For The Fantastic In The Arts, held annually in Orlando, Florida. Your donations will help me in terms of air fare, accommodation and expenses. As a Singaporean science fiction writer, this is a fantastic way to know more about the international field.

At ICFA, I get to meet fellow writers, editors and academics all passionate about science fiction, fantasy and the fantastic in the arts. I also get the opportunity to read my stories at readings and panels. Likewise, this is an awesome time to interact with writers and friends in the industry.

What I do as a Singaporean science fiction writer: I write science fiction and fantasy. I started writing professionally in 2007, published my first short story inspired by Asian steampunk in 2010, and spearheaded Singapore’s…
