Hi! I'm Debbi Mack. I wear several hats, but my role here is host of the Crime Cafe podcast, where I interview crime, suspense, and thriller writers.

Every other week from July to the following March, I post a video and audio recording of each interview. Each author provides a guest post and giveaway that goes up the week before his or her appearance.

If you're not familiar with Patreon, the concept is that of a crowdsourced approach to patronage. As in "patron of the arts". Except instead of seeking support from one or two really wealthy patrons, creators here rely on many small contributions.

I think of this as a "win-win" project. I have a working podcast, the authors interviewed benefit from it, and readers get to know the authors and their work.

I plan to not only maintain this podcast, but to improve upon it. This will require better equipment, outsourcing, and other expenditures. In order to make this a sustainable effort, I am seeking your support.

If you look at the various patronage levels, you'll see that each comes with specific perks. On top of which, you'll get access to news, updates, early looks at works-in-progress, and other content available only to supporters.

If you look to the left under Goals, you'll see where I've identified three, including providing original, scripted content.

Thank you for reading this! If you enjoy the show, consider becoming a patron.
