What is Patreon?
It’s a crowdfunding platform for artists and creators. Youtubers, authors, bloggers, webcomic creators, and artists are the most common kinds of content creators. The system allows a patron (a supporter) to pay a tip to the creator, whether it’s for each piece of art or video created, or it’s a monthly payment that they set themselves. It can be as low as $1 per month. But there are rewards for those who pay more. Think of Patreon as a way of thanking the creator for what they do.
Why did I join it?
It’s a way to help me support my family and pay the bills while allowing me to spend more time to writing and blogging. I also intend on creating videos. However, my main focus is on writing my book.
What will I do with the money?
Pay bills, depending on other income. It will also help me pay for editors and any other person I need to pay to make my books as professional as possible.
What do you get?
As a patron, you get to see behind the scenes videos and other information that only patrons can see. You’ll also get exclusive access to samples of my first draft as it becomes available, and likely monthly. There will also be other samples of my writing you’ll be able to see before it’s available to the public.
Where can I find it?
You can find my Patreon page right here!
I’m open to other suggestions for rewards or exclusive content for patrons. Let me know in the comments!
