I’ve wanted to redo some of my patreon things for a few months now and finally had a few days to work on it. It’s like anything else, seeing what works and what does, and how best to maximize what people get for their troubles. I’ve had nearly two years on the service now, and it has meant guaranteed money for my medication every month–there are no words for how much that has helped my stress level, knowing I won’t ever have to go without pills.
In addition to ARCs and signed print books, here are currently some things available for Patrons of Snark:
- Ch 1 – 2 of Solace, Demons of Oblivion #6 (all patrons)
- short story Tales from Alchemy Red: Prey (all patrons)
- Ch 1 of Devour, sequel to Soulless (all patrons)
- Ch 1 – 5 of In Darkness Waits (unpublished apocalyptic UF) (all patrons)
- Tales from Alchemy Red: Dial V for Vampire ($5+ patrons)
- Odin’s Spear excerpt (all patrons)
There were also previews of Oblivion not seen by anyone else months in advance. As well, this is where you’ll find the Zara Lain serial Amends, which is set between Bloodlines and Hunter. I’m hopefully going to have another bundle of chapters up next month and the damn thing finished next year.
Also next year I’m looking at doing a Livi adventure as a postcard story–every month a postcard from Livi will arrive in your mailbox with another piece of the story. Still working out the story part, but I’m excited.
And no matter what you give, you’ll get kudos when Odin’s Spear is released–every patron gets my public thanks when the new book releases, sort of like the credits at the end of the movie with all the amazing folks who made it happen. Deadline is December 31 to pledge!
If you can’t participate, that’s cool–I still think you’re aces. But if you’d like to chip in as little as $2/month, here you go.
***Just a quick website note: I’ve having some issues with a plugin and I’m not sure what. Everything else should still be working at the moment but the online shop will be down for a bit.
