Patreon Revamped

What is Patreon? Patreon is a lovely little hiding place of tidbits and treasures, where I tuck away hidden words, behind the scenes information, and other writing (and life) goodies. More than just a system to “tip” your favorite creators for their hard work, it’s a place where you can find extras for only a couple bucks a month. And I’ve recently revamped it to better suit your needs, desires, and well, let’s face it, curiosities.

The new tiers are structured as follows:

The Follower — This tier is simply for those who want to support my madness. This is literally a tip jar. ($1/mth)

The Curious — This is the basic level of goodies and will include things such as exclusive blogs, writing 101s, and recipes. ($2/mth)

Buttercup Groupies — This is where to find the archived podcasts, as well as the items from the Curious tier. And if I ever record new Buttercup episodes, they will be posted exclusively to here. ($3/mth)

Subtler Nudger — At this level you have access to both the Curious and the Groupie levels, PLUS: behind the scenes items such as story notes, character bios, prompts, tools or other things that come up during the process of my writing. You may also see exclusive flash fiction, forgotten stories, and bits and pieces of otherwise hard to find writings. ($5/mth)

Super Supporter — At this level you will be granted access to everything that came before, PLUS a nod in the acknowledgments of any book finished while you’re here, as well as a free e-copy of any book I put out while you’re a patreon. ($10/mth)

Interested? Awesome! Where do you sign up? Over here at Patreon. I post (at least) once a month for each tier. I truly appreciate each and every person, at any level, and thank you for your support!

The One About Bronzeville Books

In the Great Clean Sweeping of Twitter 2020* I realized that while I want a clean slate going forward, there are things I do not want lost to the annals of history. The Bronzeville debacle is among them.

But likely not for the reason you suspect.

Yes, Bronzeville Books was refusing to pay me (and others) and I took to twitter to shame them into doing what they should do: honor a signed, legal, contract. They did this and that and blah blah, but the beauty of the ten day campaign was how the horror community came together as one, to point and shout and demand they do what was right.

In the end, I was paid, and I immediately paid it forward by purchasing a book from everyone who helped (whether it was their book or their suggestion). The biggest, baddest book haul I’ve ever done in one sweep came out like this:

I encourage you to check out these books and authors. And at the end of the day, remember who has your back, and pay it forward.

*I’m wiping (or already have wiped) over 26,000 tweets spanning 15 years, and you may have noticed this website was also cleaned out. New decade, new direction! Come along for the ride =)
