WHO AM I?

I’m Sarah (Jane) Weldon, and I write British themed cozy mysteries. When I'm not writing, you'll most likely find me on the set of a murder mystery production for television or film, speaking to young writers in schools, or enjoying a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake after one of my ice swims.  Because of my work, I get to travel around Britain and spend quite a bit of time hanging around on set in between takes. This gives me the perfect opportunity to devour cozy mystery books on my e-reader and to write mysteries of my own. On average, I'll write one new story each week. 

WHY PATREON?

Right now, I sell my books on Amazon for around $2.99-$4.99 per book. But because I am in Kindle Unlimited, this means I have to be exclusive to Amazon and can't offer my books for free or for sale elsewhere.  Every 90 days Amazon lets me make my books available for free for five days, but I know that not everyone has access to Amazon. I need to earn a living from my books (to pay for things like cover design, editing, food, a roof over my head), so I'm not able to pull them from Kindle Unlimited or to make them permafree on other platforms without harming my income (no income = no new books). 

With Patreon, I'll be able to offer my books to readers for $1 a month, BEFORE they go live on Amazon. If I continue to publish one book per week, that means 4 new books for $1 to you. So, if you aren't able to get my books when they go on free promotion on Amazon, you'll still be able to download them, and BEFORE anyone else gets them. It also means that I will be less reliant on Amazon for my income in the longer term. Plus I get to keep more royalties from book sales rather than the 35-70% I get on Amazon.    

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

For $1 a month, you get my new cozy mysteries EARLY. Usually, about a week before they get published on Amazon. I'll also try to share any free audiobook codes I get for my books with you, so you get early access to those too. 

You'll still be able to download my books on Amazon and to read them on Kindle Unlimited, but Patreon is a way for me to make my books available to people who don't have access to Amazon, or who want to support my writing for a nominal amount each month.   

FAQ

HOW WILL YOU DELIVER THE BOOKS? - Each week, I'll post a Bookfunnel link to our private Patreon page. You'll be able to click through this link to download the book in the format that you prefer (MOBI for Kindle, EPUB for e-reader, or PDF). 

WHAT BOOKS WILL YOU WRITE? - Each week (usually) I'll write a new cozy mystery. It might be a book from an ongoing series, or perhaps something I'm super excited about that I think will be fun, or it could be a holiday or seasonally themed mystery like Christmas, Easter, or Halloween.  Each book will generally be around 30k-50k words. 

HOW OFTEN WILL YOU PUBLISH? - I generally write one new cozy mystery per week, and I'll try and tie this in with the 
Free Book Friday newsletter so that you have a new book for each weekend. 

CAN I SHARE YOUR BOOKS WITH OTHERS? - All of my books are DRM-free, so you can share them with friends and family if you wish to. You'll also be able to let friends and family know when they become available for free on Amazon a week later, so that they can grab a copy of their own if they want one. 

WHY ARE YOU STARTING A PATREON CAMPAIGN? - I've been receiving emails from readers in countries such as Indonesia and China who said that Amazon is not available in their country, as well as readers on Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple, Google Play, who really wanted my books but couldn't get them. Because I'm exclusive with Amazon, I'm not able to make my books available in other places, so Patreon allows me to easily share my books with readers BEFORE they are published and contracted exclusively on Amazon. That way readers on other platforms or in other countries don't get left out.
