If you don’t know, Patreon is a website where creatives (artists, musicians, writers, podcasters, animators) can get paid for their work. They offer levels, billed monthly, as low as one dollar, and incentives for each level. Having customers forces you to deliver on your promises.
Another writer mentioned that he was looking into it and we got to chatting.
I’m thinking of forming a brand new collection of a dozen or so microfiction each month, and selling that to subscribers of a certain level.

I was sharing the vss stuff on our Facebook page. But I like the idea of a ‘best of’ collection. I could start by posting THAT to the website, and I could add in things for patreon subscribers if I do it. You’ve got me thinking, Marcus.

We’ve always thought books were the most valuable product, and they are, but writers produce content that is valuable all the time.
Our website is looked at almost daily. Out Twitter feed is rocking and rolling with interactions. The Facebook page is being seen by a number of people outside of our facebook friends.
Clearly, we are worthy. We are winning hearts to us and making friends. Our work does have value and it’s time we recognized that.
I hope we are worth a dollar a month support.
Our Patreon page is coming soon.
