Hello!!
My name is Lisa Quinn and I draw a web comic called "Monsters in the Merlot" It is the love child of waiting tables too much, drinking a lot, and depression that some times spirals into unexplained laughter...I blame the lack of sleep.

When I first started putting my comics on Patreon, I was living behind a divider in half of a room in down town Raleigh. I was single, I was barely making ends meet  and drinking entirely too much. Some of the earlier comics were drawn WHILE I was drinking, which is why they are harder to read. 

Money from Patreon used to literally help keep my bills paid. I am really happy that I can FINALLY make ends meet on my own. So I had to update the this section:

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY BE GOING??
I just hired a real live human person to do my website for me. I paid GoDaddy for years for a site that I never got around to creating. I have paid for domain names...I think Monstersinthemerlotcomics.com is still floating around out there. This human is going to make my site mobile ready and clean up my online presence in general because the residue of my attempts is still floating around. This is where $100 a month will be going. The second goal is to start trying to compile a book. A lot of the first comics were drawn on an ipad in a different program at a very terrible resolution that will most likely need to be redrawn. So I guess what is left over from paying the web person will be used on coffee and energy drinks to accomplish that.

At the moment my rewards aren't terribly exciting, but I am finally getting to a place where I can start offering better incentives. I am about to start offering comics ahead of time. So far I have been so busy with work that I was barely getting the comics out on time, but I am slowly working ahead enough that I am about to start offering Patreon supporters comics before they are published. Since $5 a month is about the same as buying me a sassy coffee,  I would like to do a monthly "coffee with Lisa" video just for those  supporters! I have more ideas for rewards and as I get closer to my financial goals, I will be able to do more and more for you guys! Thank you SO much for looking at my page and considering supporting me and if you do Decide to support me THANK YOUUUUUUU!!!!!! Every supporter that wants a hand made thank you card sent to their house can send me their address to [email protected]

Goals
$160 of $300 per month
I want to be able to pay someone to help me. I'm sorry guys, I'm just not smart enough to do it alone. I want help selling merch. I have purchased a lot of mugs and T-shirts and post cards to sell that didn't sell...or maybe they just haven't sold YET! Either way it has left me thinking that getting fixed up with a third party site would be the way to go. I submit my images, when they get an order, they print and send it out, keeping some of the earnings. I don't know how many times I had to arrange to meet someone in between shifts at work to sell a $20 mug ($4 profit) or meet them after work to sell a mug, where I would find myself having a beer with them (-$2 profit) So at this point I would hopefully be able to pay someone else to figure this out for me. I am retarded with computers, all of this website stuff is a mystery and a nightmare for me. I draw stick figures! I don't dabble in magic!
