Why are you starting a Patreon Page?
The simplest, shortest answer is that the industry is changing, and if I don't change with it, I won't survive.
The much sunnier answer is that I wanted a new platform where I can bring everything I'm doing together, and Patreon offers a great new home, where people who have been telling me that I charge too little for my books can correct that problem themselves and receive extra content in exchange.
Stabilizing a volatile career is another potential plus to Patreon, which would make it easier for me to release novels and other things.
Will Your Podcasts, Updates, and Free Novels Cost Something Now?
Most podcasts will be free, and there will be many more of them since Patreon puts me on a release schedule. Updates on writing progress will be free as always, an available there, and anyone who joins my Patreon will receive all my free books and something more. So, only the location of the free stuff will change.
Are You Dropping This Blog?
I will link everything that is available to the general public on Patreon here, so your subscription and attention on this page isn't wasted.
Are You Still Going To Contribute To Your Facebook Page and Participate on Twitter?
Yes. Larger posts, audio, video, and articles will be on Pateron and the other social media platforms will have links to them.
Will There Be Pateron Exclusives?
Yes, at least two a month are planned. Stay tuned.
Will You Still Publish Your Books As You Have Been?
Yes, in fact I will be publishing more per year if things with Patreon go well.
What Is Patreon?
There's a YouTube Video that explains that pretty well, give it a watch.
I'd like to thank everyone for their support thus far. You've purchased my books, talked about them with friends, family and online, and done so much more. I appreciate everything, and Patreon will ensure that I offer more to get excited about on a more regular basis.
