As I wind down with Scandal edits and post the final chapters, I see free time on the horizon. My main goal in 2020 is to GMST (get my shit together) as an author. Up until now, I feel like I’ve been throwing darts at a calendar like, “Yeah, that date works” while also failing at reigning in my chaos. Chaos meaning my impulsiveness.
SO. ADULTING IN 2020.
There will be extensive planning. Scheduling. Responsibility in droves.
My first order of business is to update all of my Patreon Tiers with legit rewards again. Initially, I had some, but I took them down because I just couldn’t GMST. Also, I posted here on my site about issues with pirated work a few weeks back and really went into why I initially put a paywall up on it. Long story short, I thought I’d increased security enough to prevent it from happening again, but alas.
I am truly sorry for the back and forth on this over the past year, but the sheer number of websites with pirated Scandal chapters has decided it for me.
I’m going to start using this website mostly to make announcements and blog about writing, and I’m going to remove my works from here (and Wattpad) and start moving all of my serial fiction over to Patreon. I work really hard on my books. The amount of time and money I’ve put into researching Scandal alone…my God. I should be getting paid for it really, and so I’m going to start asking to be.
I totally understand if you decide not to follow me on this new step in my writing career. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for sticking around up until now.
There is a LOT of writing to move, so in the beginning, I’ll be posting on Patreon at least three times a week. Also, don’t fear, I will post the final chapters of Scandal here, for free. I wouldn’t just cut you guys off so close to the end. But just an FYI, they’ll stay up for only a few weeks before I take the book down. I don’t want to risk any longer and have the whole damn book up on pirated sites.
This is what the new, updated Patreon tiers look like, with some pretty legit benefits.
- Access to all of my serial fiction chapters and YouTube videos. Right now, as I’m just starting to really run this Patreon like I should, you get a chapter a week from THREE novels – Scandal (Mondays), Snowed In (Wednesdays), and The Lunatics: Volume One (Fridays).
- The same benefits of the $1 Tier, plus short stories and bonus scenes from my novels (like a John & Henry NSFW scene – you know you want it).
- The same benefits of the $2 tier, plus access to downloadable copies of my published e-books and polls deciding which bonus scene I write next.
$ 10 Tier:
- The same benefits of the previous tiers, my eternal gratitude, your name in the credits of my next book, and exclusive videos.
- All of the benefits of the previous tiers, my eternal gratitude, PLUS one inscribed paperback copy of EACH of my books. Limit one per month, i.e. the first month you get to pick a book, tell me what to write on the inside, the next month you get to pick a different book, and so on. If you get all of the books I currently have released and continue to donate to me at this level, I will name a goat after you. Or a lamb. Maybe even a character. Or I’ll mail you a chapbook version of one of my books. We’ll come up with something.
So there is the plan going forward. Again, thank you so much to everyone who has stuck around for all of these years. I do still plan to post to the website, but, like I said above, it will mostly be to make announcements.
