I’ve taken the plunge on creating a Patreon page. I toyed with Patreon, way back when as an experiment to support my community conferences. My most heartfelt thanks to those awesome folks that supported those efforts.
I closed those Patreon pages down after about a year because it was a lot of work to create content just for those few supporters. I felt like I wasn’t doing enough to warrant people’s support. It was an experiment and I learned a lot.
Now that writing is a much larger part of my life, and, I hope an ever-growing part of my income, I wanted to explore offering something a little extra for those folks that want it.
The biggest hurdle (for me) in creating something like this was committing to creating extra content. I worried that I’d have to dedicate time to creating Patreon content, vs. writing. I realized however that I have no shortage of content to share with those that want it, early and in some cases exclusive access to my words.
So, if you want to get access to scenes as I write them, or early access to digital releases, or even want to ensure that every book I release, there’s a signed copy with your name on it, then check out the options on the Patreon page.
If you’re happy to buy the books when they release and don’t need more than that, that is 100% fantastic.
Patreon supporters will get access to things that I don’t normally share (Scenes, commentary on scenes, etc), things I share sporadically here (Cover reveals and such), as well as access to other stuff first (Ebook and audiobook releases). I’ve also created a special sticker (Image above) that is just for supporters. Sorry, I wanted to sweeten the deal. :)
If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know that making a full-time living as a writer is my goal. This is one more step toward that. Like any business, Rogue Publishing will have multiple revenue streams. I want to offer as many ways as possible for fans to support me.
