I have exciting news! I’ve decided (okay, been persuaded) to
start a Patreon page. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Patreon, it is
a way to support the authors (or artists, or various other types of creative people)
whose work you enjoy. It is very simple. Patrons sign up to make a monthly
contribution (as little as a dollar a month) to the “creator” of their choice,
and in return get various rewards that are not available to the general public.
The greater the monthly pledge, the more exciting the rewards.
Needless to say, not everyone can afford to do this, or will
have any desire to support their favorite authors by doing anything more than
buying books and leaving the occasional review. That’s just fine. But for
others, it is an opportunity to be a part of the creative process, support
folks they admire, and get fun and interesting rewards in the process. And
those they support get to do what they love and worry just a little bit less
To be honest, the deciding factor for me was the recent
insane vet bills for my beloved cats. (Mystic is on a medicine that costs, I kid you not, $300/month. But without it, he wouldn't be here.) I didn’t want to do a Go Fund Me and just
ask for money, and I’d already been playing around with the idea of doing a
Patreon page, since it allows me to give back to the folks who support my
efforts. It’s something of an experiment, and we’ll see how it goes.
But in the meanwhile, here it is. Feel free to follow this
