Hey guys! So I have an update to share with regards to anyone who is a part of my Patreon. For those who don’t know, I relaunched my Patreon back in March to co-incide with the release of Ascension and Patreon was a way for people to pledge a certain amount a month to help me with my future works while getting some rewards in return such as extracts of future work, exclusive news before anyone else and more!
So it is with the heaviest heart that today I’m announcing that I will not be using Patreon for the foreseeable future.
My reasons for this are rather simple:
- My idea to launch Patreon alongside my novel was a really bad idea. As it is my first one, I feel that nobody would pledge and support my work especially as I was a fresh new author on the scene.
- I felt like I was taking away a lot of good content for you guys, especially since I got a brilliant response from the newsletters I used to do.
- I don’t have a massive audience so asking people to essentially donate money to my career seemed quite selfish of me to do.
For those who are Patreon supporters I am so sorry if this has upset you in any way. I do have a bunch of other ways you can support me which include buying my books, leaving reviews of my work, sharing it on social media and you can make a one time donation through Paypal if you feel so inclined.
My Patreon isn’t going away forever however; I will relaunch it but it won’t be for a long time as I feel that re-launching it when I’m a little bit more established and experienced would benefit me better.
This does mean however, that I will be going back to newsletters in the near future! I will update you all on the newsletter re-launch as it happens and I hope that you’re excited to see my news fly into your inbox once again. If you were already signed up to my newsletter, you will need to reconfirm your subscription which I will sort out in due course.
If you guys have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
