About Jason Denzel & Dragonmount

Hello,

My name is Jason Denzel and I'm a writer, and the founder of Dragonmount.com, a Wheel of Time fan community based around Robert Jordan's epic fantasy novels. For nearly 24 years I've maintained and self-hosted this large website, which has received considerable traffic and attention. The entire venture has been either self-funded personally by me, or with the help of revenue from banner ads, an online shop, or, on rare occasions, direct donations from fans. A significant portion of my personal book sales from my own series has gone directly into maintaining the website. I'm happy to have done this because Dragonmount is, and will forever be, important to me and a significant number of fans.

A New Age of Wheel of Time Fandom

With the arrival of the Wheel of Time TV series, my staff and I have seen a significant increase in traffic to the Dragonmount website. We would like to not only maintain the level of excellence that the flood of traffic requires, but also be able to proactively offer an exciting range of new or resurrected features for fans to enjoy. This Patreon fundraiser will be one of the primary methods for funding those ventures. 

Here's a list of some of our goals:

  1. Bring back the 4th Age podcast, which will focus primarily on the Wheel of Time TV show. (To be launched around the same time as the show) Complete! View our new podcast
  2. Increase our social media presence where we frequently share facts, info, art, history, commentary, quizzes, and speculation. Our goal is to be active every single day of the year on our website and across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. We've already begun this process, but plan to increase it, along with Patreon-Only content. 
  3. Host monthly Patreon chats over zoom with notable fan guests, artists, or writers from the book and TV shows.
  4. Re-create our monthly email newsletter in order to stay in touch with WoT fans. Complete!
  5. Create additional new blog series focused on the TV show.
  6. Expand our Wheel of Time video series related to the TV show. 
  7. Create a fan-maintained wiki focused on the TV show. 
  8. Create concise, downloadable summaries and recaps of each book in the series, and each season of the show. Complete!
  9. Provide an ad-free experience on the DM website to all Patreon backers. 
  10. Keep our server hardware up-to-date and modern.

Also...

In addition to increasing my ability to create and manage Wheel of Time content, this Patreon will enable me to focus more on my own original fiction. By funding DM and our coverage of the WoT TV show, it will allow me to delegate more tasks, and spend more time writing my own stories. I'll make a heavy effort to share my progress and some exclusive content with patreon backers. 

I've been doing this for over 20 years, and it's time to level up once more. Your contribution will go a long way towards making that happen. Thanks for your consideration!
Goals
$500.14 of $600 per month
