That Patreon Thing

I made it live. I know it's late. I had issues figuring out how to set it up. I gave up. Then went back. I was still trying to figure out how to put the links on the appropriate levels early this morning. I was clicking the charge patron button that didn't offer me the option of the two levels. I stopped clicking that option and there they were. DUH... SMACKS HEAD! In my defense, there isn't any real instruction on the site.

Okay, so, the first two rewards are not live yet. They will go live tonight just before midnight central time. Because I hit schedule. and didn't go back and fix it.

So, what you need to know about Patreon, explained by someone who doesn't know much about Patreon.

I have three dollar levels set. There's a one dollar level that is pre-set, it's a support with no reward option. You can click that one if you want to, I don't know why you would, but you do what you gotta. The two dollar level is where I will post one or two additions to the Scrimmage Serial I started there. You get that level, and whatever free content I post in the future, and there will be free to patrons only content in the future. After I figure out what is working. The serial entry is around five thousand words. With a second part coming around mid-month.

Note on that serial, it's unedited. I put it through several proofreaders and I read it three times to fix anything. But I didn't pay to have it edited. It hasn't been beta read either. So... for whatever that's worth.

And the four dollar level. Four dollars because I have something else in mind for a three dollar level starting in April. Something interesting. No I'm not telling you what it is. You'll have to wait and see.

But the four dollar level, you get the full length exclusive, special edition of Six Ways from Any Given Sunday. AND! AND AND AND.... you get all levels below that level. So right now you get both rewards if you choose the four dollar option. Next month you'll get whatever I put in that level, plus the three dollar level, and the two dollar level and the free patron only level. I just don't know what I have for next month in the four dollar level, I mean April, it's technically March right now. So... anyway, the link is below, I hope you enjoy my rewards. And there's the goal of one hundred patrons that will get me to do a video the following month, on any topic the patrons vote for. Maybe a reading of a chapter of something. Or a chat about a topic to be decided. Or... something.

So... here's the link. Hope you give me a chance. And thank you in advance.



Oh and I forgot to mention, that the links for the two rewards will require you to register with a service called Bookfunnel. And they will ask for your email address to send you the books. They say they do not share their information with anyone and they do not store your information. You will not have to pay anything to them. They simply distribute files. I have never used them so I don't know much about them. The files will come watermarked. Please don't share them. That's all I ask.
