Patreon Perks

 

New and exciting content for Patreons… Live perks! We tested it. We approved it. Now let’s get this on the calendars and enjoy it!

Beginning in August,  I will be adding two LIVE events per month to my patreon:

Buttercup LIVE — this event will be on Tuesdays (near the middle of the month), because why not? Later in the evening so everyone can get home from work, we’re shooting for Tuesday, August 17th at 9pm EST. This first round will be open to ALL patreons of ANY level. After the initial event it will be closed to “Buttercup tier” and up.

Writing 101 — this event will be on Sundays (2nd half of the month), to allow a little longer for Q&A and workshopping. The first tentative round is set for Sunday, August 29th at 6pm EST. The topic here is 100% dependent on those in attendance and what they want to know or learn about. Based on the test-zoom we did, we will likely be discussing the pre-writing process of outlines and organization for this first meeting (*ahem* TJ). As with Buttercup LIVE, this event is open to ALL patreons of ANY level for this first round, then it will be available to anyone who is a “curious tier” or above.

If you are not a patreon, there’s still time! Go here to choose a tier and support my madness!

If you are a patreon, I will send a reminder email out and welcome any and all day, date, and time conversations, input, etc. either on that email, on the patreon post for these events, or across social media.

This is going to be fun and exciting and oh yeah… NOT recorded. If you’re not there, there will be no way to go back and watch. See you on the 17th!

 

 

Re-re-rebirth

tl;dr — blog posts are now on Patreon.

They say you wear several hats in your lifetime. That you experience a different “you” every so many years. Oddly enough, your social media is no different.

And 2021 seems like a fantastic year for yet another rebirth of my online presence.

I’m old enough and tech enough to have been here, online, since the beginning of “online.” There was the initial “Shiny!”—when the internet was brand spanking new, when having a computer at home was a crazy idea, and everyone who did had a family or personal home page with far too many animated graphics and insane divider bars everywhere, oh, and auto-loading music. The music. Wow, I do not miss that phase. Then there was the discovery, use and abuse of message boards and hubs, and the beginnings of online friendships. That flowed gently into Horror-Web and the HorrorWench, both of which exist in the big pile of forgotten, lost, and outgrown things I sometimes still long to for. But then I remembered I didn’t want to be a webmistress, and life online changed again with the sale of HW and the rebirth of me as, well… me. Gone was the screenname, branded was the pen name.

And the internet grew, multiplied, and continued to spread its roots across the interests, hobbies and curiosities of mankind. There were business platforms, and playgrounds, and some who tried (or claimed) to teeter between the two. Over the years, I played along with accounts on AIM, MySpace, Live Journal, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Patreon, Medium, TikTok, Wattpad, Goodreads, BookBub, Ello, Mastadon, YouTube, several I’ve forgotten, too many message boards to list, and of course, my own dot com.

During each incarnation I’ve always had a blog of sorts—random musing and statements on life. And that will be the biggest change going forward. Much like my podcast archives have been relegated to my patreon, my original blog posts will now be exclusively posted for my Patreons. For everything else the breakdown will remain essentially the same, as follows:

· For book news only: here and Facebook will be your best bet.
· To find those personal tidbits that make me me and not your aunt or neighbor or crazy high school acquaintance who pops up every so often, check out Instagram and Twitter.
· while I appreciate those who signed up for my newsletter, I’m just not good at staying on top of that and will likely be killing it (with fire)
· But no matter what you’re looking for, the dotcom here will be the hub of all things Kelli Owen. It may not have coffee talk or garage talk or some other pithy title for my random musings, but it’ll have all the links to show you where to find me for any other platform or purpose, and all the information for my books .

Happy 2021 everyone. Now then, about that return to blogging… *slips over to Patreon to post the first blog of 2021*

 

 

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!
