Hi, this is JT. I am an indie author who writes LGBTQ+ romance with light kinky erotic elements. While I've enjoyed slapping my books up online for e-reader consumption, I'm way behind with the audiobook editions.

That's where Patreon comes in.

Audiobooks can be made with zero money upfront, if (a big IF) narrators choose the royalty split route. However, artists can only risk so much for free, particularly if they're unsure if their investment in time and expertise would be properly rewarded with unforeseeable royalties that may not gain much traction from the end product. 

That's why a lot of narrators forego the royalty split and would rather choose to be paid upfront per finished hour (PFH). Seasoned narrators are now charging $450 PFH minimum for their works. I was able to find and secure a narrator that I'd be happy to hire at $225 PFH.

The only hiccup in the process is the upfront costs. Translation: the more I can invest now, the sooner the audiobook editions of my books will be produced.

Your patronage matters.

I have four audiobooks out at the present moment, with four more slated for release this year. Those audiobooks will be released independent of your patronage. 

Given the finished hours of the first three audiobooks in the DykeLove Quickies series, which averaged about one hour each, I can guesstimate that the audiobook edition of my more popular ebook series, the Purr Billionaire BDSM Trio series, to be a grand total of 20 finished hours.

That would mean it would take an estimated $225 x 20 = $4,500 to create the complete audiobook edition for Purr Billionaire BDSM Trio.

Up for the ride?

Your patronage, no matter how big or small, will help me get closer to delivering Clark, Mariah, and Britt's story to listeners' ears. I'd be over-the-moon wild if I can get their story out by the 2016 holiday season!

My utmost gratitude goes to each and every one of you who choose to support me in this process. You can check out the rewards I've slated for your patronage.

That's it for now, short and sweet (I hope). :-) JT

Everything above, plus interact live with me on a monthly 30-minute webcast/chat. I take questions, talk about writing/Life/BALANCE (whoa!), indie, etc. Um, no -- this is not a place to proposition a happily married mother, thank you very much.

Everything above, plus a personal thank you email every month (consider this a pen pal thing). No, you don't want me on the phone. I'd be constantly interrupted with wails for diaper changes, etc. No, you don't want handwritten mail, because it'll be displaced by the kiddos before it even gets a stamp and hits the post office. To make up for this, you'll also get to name my characters, contribute a humorous quirk/flaw, etc. and be acknowledged in forthcoming books!

Wow! Instead of hiring only one narrator to do all of an audiobook, it would be so awesome to have a guy narrator for the main male character and a female narrator for the main female character. Lemme dream! YEAH!
