Thank you, Jason. I do too. I love the idea of Patreon not only because I’m creating for those who directly contribute but also because it’s like our own creative community and my patrons have a say in what they like, dislike and what they’d like to say. For me, I think that’s awesome because it will help me grow as a writer and a person. We can also have live chat sessions together and Patreon’s set up and tools are amazing. It’s a creators canvas no matter what it is you create. I’ve had a lot of fun building my page.

So far it’s not looking so good for me. I just checked the newsletter stats and 527 clicked on the link but only gained one patron. That one gave me a great deal of hope and gratitude though. I’m a firm believer in you get what you give and I’m going to keeping it my all.
