Though I found Patreon.com some time ago, I have only just created my profile on there, and started to reach out to people to become patrons of my work. In the coming few months, I have lots of projects I would love to do, and make available online for free, but I need time and income to do so. I’d also like to increase the number of books I publish from two a year to five a year. I’m on target to publish three this year, but if I want to get the rest of the Earth Angel series out in a timely fashion, I need to spend more time writing and less time on worrying about paying bills.
I also have two more books in the Visionary Collection in my mind, and a YA trilogy that’s screaming to be told, and the audiobook versions to record. And to create all this awesome content, I need help.
That’s where Patreon comes in. You can pledge a certain amount per month, which I then receive to help me create the content, which is then available for free online. My books won’t be free to everyone, but the patrons will receive discounts and rewards for their support. My aim is to increase my readership to the point where my royalties are providing me with a decent income, but until then, I think Patreon is the best way forward.
So if you have read and enjoyed my books, or videos, or articles and stories, and you want to see more content, more often, then please do check out my profile and consider becoming a Patron. Every penny helps, because it means that I can concentrate on what I’m meant to be doing with my life, and stay in my Zone of Genius more often.
It will also mean that I can pay the people who have been helping me to get my work out into the world, and even to invest in help with the marketing, which will help my books to reach a wider audience.
If giving money is not something you’re able to do, or agree with, then please know that all forms of support are very much appreciated – comments on my blog, reviews of my books, my quote photos being shared, tweets being retweeted – it’s all really awesome. I also very much appreciate the emails I receive from readers from all around the world, letting me know the impact my work has had upon them. All of these things help to remind me why I do the work I do, and that I shouldn’t run off to get a crappy job or join the circus or anything.
You are awesome, thank you for your love and encouragement. xxx
