*Gets down on one knee* Would you do me the extreme honour of becoming my Patreon Patron? No, I am serious. Well, maybe not about getting down on one knee, but the other part about the extreme honour. It would be my honour absolutely to have you along supporting me on my journey to accomplish my dreams.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.
For creators, Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re already creating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatevs). Fans pay a few bucks per month OR per post you release, and then you get paid every month, or every time you release something new.
For patrons, Patreon is a way to join your favourite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that a creator makes. Imagine your favourite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
Or you can watch their video about it here on YouTube.
Why are you doing this?
Well, this Indie publishing business is not all for free and I want to create the best end product I possibly can. This means I need to help other people with their dreams and pay them. My books are not error-laden books, but an editor does a lot more than that. They take a story and make it the best it can be. I want to find an editor that can work with my unique voice and help tighten the story (and remove those grammar errors that me and Grammarly and Al have missed). Also, Al is getting too busy to commit to editing ALL the stories I have coming out. Honestly, there are hundreds and hundreds of thousands of words waiting to be edited.
Yes, I lack the ability to create the covers that are in my mind. I think I’ve done effing well with the ones I have created but I want more! I want better! The books deserve better. And artists deserve to be paid a fair amount for their work. (Just like we writers do.)
So how does it work?
Well, I have created a monthly based Patreon and on this platform, I promise to deliver different things for each tier. Early access to stories, exclusive access to other stories, poems and other creative things. Character interviews and information, dream cast manips and gifs. Personalised updates, emails, cards and well….you should probably go and look at the list to see what I offer. There are affordable options for everyone, IMO, and I’m very proud of what I am offering.
What happens if you get sick and can’t create?
Hopefully, this will happen less as I tackle my health. (Yes, in supporting me you’ll also be supporting me living the life I want to live and ensuring better health for me to be creating.) But, should this be the case, I will be making sure I have things finished before they are needed, so should I end up unwell on post day, the posts are there ready to go. In the event something terrible goes wrong, I will suspend my Patreon and you won’t be charged again until I’m back creating.
I think Patreon is a platform that makes it win-win for those creating and those consuming. You get the chance to support me, and I get the chance to share all the things I’m making and the ability to keep making them. With a bit of financial stability, I can start to get more involved in the other parts of my dreams. Helping people find their light and their path. Helping people find their way past the dimness that bullies, society and other factors have left them in. And Helping women find their inner goddess and rule their worlds. I want to help people and you can help me do this.
If you’re new to me and want to know what kind of content I create, you can look at my books and my free short stories. I create Supernatural, Historic, and Fantasy Fiction with a focus on vibrant female characters in lead and supporting roles.
*Gets back down on my knees* Please, won’t you support me and help me make my dreams come true?
