Join my VIP club at Patreon!
Patreon is a platform that enables people to heroically support creators' work, while gaining access to a private membership area containing exclusive content and access.
On Patreon, you can back a creator with a recurring monthly pledge, thereby becoming the creator's 'patron' and taking your place in a growing community.
So. Here's the place where I'm supposed to write the astonishing blurb that will convert you into becoming my Patreon patron.
But ultimately there is no way to coax someone into supporting you on Patreon.
You can't sell Patreon patronage like a book or a Blu-ray.
I know, from my own experience, that I've become a patron of creators myself because I felt strongly that I owed them in some way. Ultimately, all the rewards and tiers weren't all that important. I just wanted to give those creators something back. Someone like Steve Benway, for instance, who's one of my favourite retro gaming YouTubers.
Maybe you already feel that way about my fiction, my monthly newsletter, Sunday Confession Booth mailing list or my retro YouTube channel?
If so, that's awesome.
When you join my new VIP cult – sorry, cough, I totally meant to say club there – here at Patreon, you can access my private creator posts, which offer early access, first news and exclusive, private stuff. You also receive any added benefits associated with the level (or 'tier') at which you've chosen to pledge, including actual physical stuff like thank-you postcards. And we can actually talk, free from all algorithms and filters!
My beloved patrons help me to:
Still reading? Maybe browse the various pledge tiers I’m offering and pick one that shrieks loudest to you. Patreon takes my patrons’ payments on the first day of each month and you can opt out at any time (or edit your pledge level), safe in the knowledge that I love you for having backed me for however long you were able.
I can't tell you how much of a surprised thrill it gives me, whenever anyone signs up to my Patreon. ESPECIALLY during these uncertain times. I will do my best to repay you with content, access and gratitude.
Just so you know, by the way, when you join this VIP club, you are charged up front for your first month of patronage.
IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE: Patreon is not the only way to support me! Buying my books is 100% support. There are also countless ways to back me that don't involve cash-money. When you recommend or review one of my books, or subscribe to my YouTube channel/newsletters, or even follow me on Twitter or Instagram, that's all wonderful support. You are no less of a fan for not supporting me on Patreon!
Any further questions or feedback? Benefits you'd like to see, but which just aren't there? Any concerns or worries or annoyances that are preventing you from joining? Drop me a line via my site. Thanks for reading and I look forward to welcoming you to this cult.
Club, club, club.
