Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page. As soon as I heard about Patreon back in 2014, I jumped on board. I wrote about this whole thing over on my blog (you can read that post here on Patreon) but the short version is that I think this patronage idea is revolutionary. It's a way to crowd-source full support, not just the sexy project to project stuff. This is where real support of the arts can live. This isn't just buying a ticket and purchasing an experience. This is where people can start supporting artists from the ground up. While we're creating. For what we are creating. Total awesomeness. 
I'm a struggling artist. (We all are, really. Even the most successful ones. This is why my blog is called Songs for the Struggling Artist. The podcast is called that too.) 

Go watch the Patreon video about how it works: http://youtu.be/wH-IDF809fQ (It's got cool drawings and it's only a minute long.)

It goes like this:
You pledge $1 (or more!) for every time I post a blog entry to my blog, Songs for the Struggling Artist. You set this up to do it automatically, so you don't have to think about it.  And you can set a maximum, so in case I started posting something every hour on the hour (VERY UNLIKELY!) you're not out more dollars than you want to be. (I usually post between 3 and 8 times a month.) You can also set a limit so that your pledge is a predictable amount each month. If you only want to give me a dollar every month - just pledge a dollar and set your maximum for a dollar! I appreciate every little bit whole heartedly. 

It's a way to support both me and my work. 

And if that all sounds confusing, you're not alone. I've recently learned that there's a simpler membership way to do things here at Patreon and I'm actively working on figuring out how to make the switch. So come on board now, while you're still confused and you'll win some hero status. Like, big points. I will record you a little song and send it to you. Or come on back in a couple of weeks and get on board the easier way. I'll be so happy to have your support any way you can manage it. 

While the blog is the anchor for the posts, your support here means I can do all the other things I do as well. Your dollars support my novels, my podcasts, my plays, my songs, my theatre dreaming, my creative practice. The dollars make the art possible. 

My patrons get my good news before everyone else - and I am always looking for opportunities to express my appreciation for my patrons. I am incredibly grateful for the gift of your patronage.
