Patreon Relaunch!

Hello everyone! If you don’t know what patreon is it’s a platform where you can get exclusives from different artists,  and I’m one of them! I have tons of things planned so I wanted to give you a heads up of the rewards list for each tier.

The Spy 🕵
Get your eyes on exclusive short stories, these stories will self-destruct when replaced with a new one. You can’t go back, but you can keep any “unlocked missions.”

The Lockpicker🔓
Sometimes a spy needs to level up their skills. Get patreon only news, reviews, and more exclusives. The last three short stories will be declassified for your eyes only.

The Artist 🎨
Not only do you get the Spy and Lockpick rewards, but also mail! Get a handmade bookmark each month, likely watercolor but we’ll see were the muse takes this artist. US addresses only, international Artists will get a printable version.

The Writer✍️
The Writer is a multi-classer who wants access to the written word and enjoys making their own worlds. If you’re looking for a query edit or short story feedback this tier is the place to be. Rewards can be requested once a month by emailing artoverchaos@live.com

The Librarian 📚
For the ultimate book collector. Not only do you get bookmarks, short stories, and more, if you are missing a paperback of Bone Diggers or Hello World I will sign and send you a copy! When a new book is about to come out Librarian’s will be offered advanced reader copies. US only, international Librarians will be offered a trio of ebooks.

May is Aces!

This month I decided to add some of my favorite writers to the collection!
A short collection of poems that touch on finding yourself while in the spaces between toxic people and emotionally abusive lovers.

 

A Word And A Bullet
Colt, Janie, and Damien were planning a weekend at Zed Games when the real apocalypse canceled their trip. Now the planet is trying to kill them. Evacuation by plane is less than successful. The Piper goes down. They survive, stranded somewhere up the East Coast with all the gear they could ask for but no idea where to go, and natural disasters erupting in every direction.

 

When Mab learns of a geologically stable place in Canada, she leaves Portland behind. Vet, the world’s dumbest remaining dog, goes with her, and while they try to navigate the wilderness, mountains become volcanoes. Strangers become bandits. Mab wasn’t prepared for this, but she writes the book on how to improvise in case of apocalypse.

 

Also featured this month is an aro ace moon phase inspired cross stitch from Sarah M. Carter! You can see more awesome works at Carter Threads!

 

Thank you to everyone who’s helped make The Little Free Library possible, and I updated the patreon’s goals with things I’d love to do in the future here.

October’s Little Free Library Picks!

Thought I’d throw in a Star Wars coloring book and an R2D2 model kit for kids or stressed out adults along with this month’s patreon supported books which are:

How to Be You by Jeffrey Marsh

This book is about how to finally give up on feeling bad about ourselves and discover the best person we can be.

An interactive experience, How to Be You invites you to make the book your own through activities such as coloring in charts, answering questions about how you do the things you do, and discovering patterns in your lives that may be holding you back. Through Jeffrey’s own story of “growing up fabulous in a small farming town”–along with the stories of hero/ines who have transcended the stereotypes of race, age, and gender–you will discover that you are not alone, can deepen your relationship with yourself, and find the courage to take a leap that will change your life.

Their tweets are such a breath of fresh hopeful air I knew I just had to add this book to the collection for anyone who needed it.

The Memory Book by Lara Avery 

They tell me that my memory will never be the same, that I’ll start forgetting things. At first just a little, and then a lot. So I’m writing to remember.

Sammie was always a girl with a plan: graduate at the top of her class and get out of her small town as soon as humanly possible. Nothing will stand in her way–not even a rare genetic disorder the doctors say will slowly start to steal her memories and then her health. What she needs is a new plan.

They say don’t judge a book by its cover, but I saw the design and was instantly curious, so when it came out on paperback I grabbed a copy! Also, the typography is realistic and intriguing from what I’ve seen so far.

The End of Protest by Micah White

Is protest broken? Micah White, co-creator of Occupy Wall Street, thinks so. Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance.

In The End of Protest Micah White heralds the future of activism. Drawing on his unique experience with Occupy Wall Street, a contagious protest that spread to eighty-two countries, White articulates a unified theory of revolution and eight principles of tactical innovation that are destined to catalyze the next generation of social movements.

I can’t think of any book more timely to America’s mass involvement while those in power give us new and horrific headline s daily.
