I Have a Patreon!

So yesterday I put together a Patreon, something I’ve been mulling for a while!

Here’s a bit more info about it…

TL;DR: It has two basic purposes: 1) Bonus content related to my books, and 2) A place to gather all my writing advice posts (mostly from Twitter)!

Writing posts: I’m going to keep doing my writing threads on Twitter first, and those will always be freely available if you search for them! But I always wanted to pull them together in one place, and having the Patreon will nudge me to actually find the time to DO that because people are paying me. 

A few key posts will be free/public, like this one with advice for beginning writers finishing their first novels and looking ahead at the possibility of publishing.

Bonus Content: So this entire Patreon idea was basically motivated by me really wanting to do some cute little epilogue scenes & snippets & doodles imagining life for my Swords & Fire characters after the end of the series (or going into their backstories before it). 

There will absolutely be some of that, as time allows! And there will also be little peeks behind the scenes into my mess of supporting files (notes, cut scenes, etc), occasional little teasers about stuff I’m writing currently, etc.

I’m also doing a sort of monthly-ish mini-newsletter with updates, and there may be occasional pet pics & such.

Frequency of updates overall may vary depending on whether I’ve got deadlines coming up or not! (But I’m going to try to schedule stuff out to avoid big gaps.)

So that’s the idea! We’ll see how this adventure goes. Thank you to anyone who decides to join me on it!
