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 CuriousAt this level you will be granted access to all behind-the-scenes goodies, which can include anything from story notes to character bios, writing 101s, prompts, tools or other things that come up during the process of my writing. ($2/mth)

Buttercup GroupiesHere you will have access to the old podcasts, as well as the  behind-the-scenes of the Curious tier. If I ever record new Buttercup episodes, this is where you’ll find them. ($3/mth)

Subtler Nudger — At this level you will be granted access to both the behind-the-scenes of the Curious and the Buttercup episodes, PLUS: exclusive flash fiction, forgotten stories, and bits and pieces of otherwise hard to find writings. Your existence guilts me into being better about regular content. ($5/mth)

Super Supporter — At this level you will be granted access to everything from the Curious, the Buttercup episodes, and the Nudger, 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!

Signing Off | Buttercup of Doom 2.11



The end of a (short) era. The finale of the Buttercup of Doom podcast was taped live at Scares That Care charity weekend 5 because a bunch of lovely humans donated funds during the Horror Show with Brian Keene telethon and decreed it to be. And so it was.

We performed without a net—no notes, no plan—winging it with whomever showed up. It was a free-for-all Q&A, which included the famous “f*ck, marry, kill” question, pizza toppings, group sing-alongs, many other topics, insanity, giggles, and a reminder of rule number one: Don’t Be A Dick (oh, that should be my campaign slogan: Buttercup 2020)

Many many thanks to those who donated to make it happen, to those who attended the taping, and to those who have listened over the years. Not sure what kept your attention, but I’m humbled to have had it. Thank you, and good-night…

New Norm | Buttercup of Doom 2.1



This week I lament over the new norm: the stupid things society just accepts because they’re common. From emulating stupidity to demeaning terms like baby mama and side chicks, I have opinions… and a potty mouth. *NSFW* this week for Language.
