Join my VIP club at Patreon!
WHAT IS PATREON?
Patreon enables people to heroically support creators' work with a recurring monthly pledge, while gaining access to a private community that has access to exclusive content and contact. This helps creators gain independence, backed by the people who like their work.
Really cool, then.
WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU SUPPORT ME?
When you join my new VIP cult – sorry, cough, I totally meant to say club there – here at Patreon, you can access patron-only info, chat and content. I've already revealed things in this private space that I wouldn't post on Twitter. Most importantly, we can actually chat, you and I, free from all algorithms and filters.
In June 2020, for instance, I made a whole week of daily posts, in which I offered my beloved patrons something different every day. These things included:
Pretty cool, huh? When you pledge, you gain access to all this past content.
Depending on the level (or 'tier') at which you choose to pledge, you may also gain perks like having your name at the end of my YouTube videos or receiving a postcard from me every 12 months.
Your patronage will also help me to:
I'm already excited to have launched a new private cult (goodness me, why do I keep saying that?!? Club!). Let’s build this thing together! The bigger it gets, the more goals I’ll hit and the more time I can devote to keeping my patrons happy and pampered and scared out of their wits.
Still reading? Maybe browse the various pledge tiers I’m offering and pick one that shrieks loudest. 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. You don't have to pledge the precise amount quoted on each tier - think of the various levels as minimums for that tier and that set of perks. One creative patron pledged $6.66, for instance, and so receives all the perks associated with the $5 tier, but not the additional madness available at the $10 tier.
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.
IMPORTANT PAYMENT INFO: When you join this VIP club, you are charged up front for your entire first calendar month of patronage, regardless of which day in the month you pledge. For example, if you pledge $10 on March 14, you'll be charged $10 upfront, and then charged $10 again for the next month on April 1. You will then continue to be charged on the first day of each month that follows (provided you decide to continue supporting me, of course - you can cancel at any time!) Take a look at this page which explains in detail how the payment system works. The last thing I want is for anyone to feel surprised or blindsided by payments being taken! :)
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 channels or 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.
