Hello, Mark Does Stuff friends and fans! In order to help keep the Mark Does Stuff online universe running smoothly, I've decided to start using Patreon. For the most part, my work reviewing book and television series unspoiled (and recording evidence of that for all to see!) has been a one-dude show. It is getting to the point where this is physically and logistically impossible, just because the sheer amount of work is overwhelming. My Patreon will provide me with the chance to get some more professional help so that I CAN WRITE MORE FOR ALL OF YOU. This will help me free up time to provide: 

  • More reviews. I desperately need time to do Double Features on Mark Reads, since there are many books that need to be covered.
  • More bonus things for YOUR ENTERTAINMENT.
  • More touring / live events. After having to cancel nearly 30 events this year due to time and money constraints, I'd like to begin rebooking everything, but this costs time and money I don't have now.
  • SPECIAL SURPRISES I'VE WANTED TO PULL OFF FOR YEARS BUT COULD NOT DO SO UNTIL PATREON CAME INTO MY LIFE.
  • Work on my fiction career! I have a YA Contemporary novel out in 2018, and this will allow me to take some time off as needed to focus on writing. 

  • All of these things would be possible with regular contributions to my Patreon account. I would love to provide a method to support me monthly to my fans who perhaps aren't interested in commissions or video passes, but would like something special from me. 
    Tiers

    Because I cannot edit the price: This reward is available at $1 per month, not $5.

    Preview of Reviews!
    $25 or more per month 26 patrons
    At this level, Patrons will get access to ALL REVIEWS on both Mark Reads and Mark Watches before they are posted. Preview posts go up on Wednesday (Mark Watches) and Thursday (Mark Reads) mornings. This includes all previous tiers.
    Slack Community!
    $35 or more per month 3 patrons
    At this level, patrons will be invited to a multi-channel, private Slack community that I run. There are lots of conversations, I plan to liveblog things here, and there's a dedicated Q&A forum just to ask me questions. This includes all previous tiers!
    Private, monthly livestream!
    $50 or more per month 11 patrons
    You will gain access to a monthly livestream (lasting at least 30 minutes) that airs here on Patreon, using the Crowdcast app. Even if you miss the live event, it is archived for your viewing. Content in these videos often never appears elsewhere. This includes all previous tiers.
    Monthly Bonus Commissions!!!
    $100 or more per month 13 patrons (sold out!)
    At this level, patrons can do the impossible: request one commission a month for free of LITERALLY ANYTHING THEY WANT, as long as it still falls within the general rules of commissions. That's right, y'all. BONUS COMMISSIONS. This will allow me to reward/thank my best supporters AND limit how many of these I can accept in a month so that I don't get overworked. This includes all previous tiers.
    Goals
    $2,500 – reached! per month
    This will cover the cost of the rent of my new place in Los Angeles that I had to get last-minute in order to keep writing / reviewing / recording. If this goal is reached, the download limit on all video files will be raised to 15 downloads per file!!! MORE FREE STUFF FOR EVERYONE.
