What is Patreon?

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid.

Pledging as little as $1 a month would be a huge help. It would allow me to have a steady income so I can continue to create. Patreon will help me stay afloat with my bills and also improve my craft.

Eventually, I’ll be able to stop babysitting and taking freelance gigs so I can focus on my books and create a better community for you guys through this blog and YouTube channel.

Why Patreon?

I quit my day job so I could write full-time. It was a crazy idea and a huge risk, one I never saw myself taking. Writing is my passion and I’m thankful I get the chance to do what I love for a living. This includes sharing my writing with the world as well as the journey through blogging, YouTube videos (someday), and more.

I still have bills to pay though. I’ve taken small writing gigs here and there and babysit quite a bit to keep a steady stream of income. However, freelancing isn’t as glamorous as it sounds. I’ve been ghosted or have only gotten quick gigs here and there. This is why I joined Patreon.

(For a more in-depth answer, you can check out my blog post about why I chose to join Patreon.)

If you enjoy what I create, then please consider supporting my work through Patreon. It will allow me to do so much more with my creations and learn more along the way to improve my craft.

My Goals

I’ve always wanted to create a community of writers. Over the years, I’ve expanded upon the word “writers” and changed it to “creators.” Patreon is a great way for me to build that community and have a safe place for all creators alike.

Through Patreon, I’ll be able to save money more easily to hire a book cover artist and editor as well as begin a community for creators. (I honestly don’t have much info on this just yet. It’s in the works!)

If you can’t join me on Patreon…

That’s okay. There is absolutely no obligation to become a patron. Money is sacred and if you can’t afford it or are worried you might not be able to afford it, no worries. I’d rather you take care of yourself.

Reading this blog, commenting, and sharing my posts through social media are great support. Reading my books and spreading the word about my work is awesome support. I truly appreciate each and every one of you (especially if you’ve read this far!) and every little bit warms my heart. Thank you!

Special Thanks To All My Patrons

Ari Meghlen, Carin Marais, Galit Balli, Gwendolyn Saltzman, James Horne, Kristen Poli, Lauren Prince, Nicole Femino

You guys are the reason I can keep writing and creating!
