Patreon Updates

Hi Friends!

As promised, I've updated my Patreon! This update includes basic information about the Patreon, goals, a re-design, new links to stuff I'm working on (new game blog! Twitch Channel!), and changes to reward tiers. 

Some reward tiers have remained the same while others have changed! Please check your current pledge and the rewards listed to make sure that you receive the appropriate rewards for your pledge.


Reward Tier Changes

$1 - Tip-Jar (unchanged)

At this level, you will get: 

  • access to patron-only posts, including polls, questions, musings on my work, photos, and goal rewards!
  • early access to any notable announcements

$2 - Excerpts (Changes: will no longer be graphics; will be text only)

 At this level, you will get: 

  • excerpts from my current work-in-progress or soon-to-be-published book!

$3 - Behind-the-Scenes (unchanged)

At this level, you will get the previous rewards as well as access to behind-the-scenes material from whatever I happen to be working on, things like:

  • deleted scenes
  • brainstorming ideas
  • pencil sketches
  • editing notes
  • draft comparisons
  • early access to back cover copy and cover design

$4 - Writing and Editing Videos (unchanged)

Occasionally, I will create a video of my writing (or editing) process, including notes about what I was thinking while working on that particular scene or chapter. At this level, you will get all of the previous rewards and:

  • access to my writing and editing videos
  • rambling thoughts and musings on my writing

$5 - Excerpts+ (Changes: previously "Digital Fiction"; will no longer be doing monthly poetry; NEW: longer excerpts than $2 reward tier)

At this level, you will get all of the previous rewards and:

  • longer excerpts from my current work-in-progress or soon-to-be published book

$10 - Early Reader (Changes: previously "Postcard Poetry"; will no longer be sending monthly poetry; no longer limited to 30 patrons; NEW: early access to work-in-progress, previously part of the $25 reward; occasional mail of cool stuff)

At this level, you will receive all of the previous rewards and:

  • early chapters of my current work-in-progress
  • extra behind-the-scenes notes
  • super secret surprise goodies

$25 - Book Hoarder (Changes: previously "Early Reader"; one signed book per month as a patron instead of all books, early chapters moved to $10 reward)

At this level, you will get all of the previous rewards and:

  • one of my published books for each month you are a patron (signed paperback or ebook format of choice)
  • a signed Advanced Reader Copy of any soon-to-be-published book, for as long as you are a patron


Goal Changes

I have added a new $100 goal to create a Discord channel for patrons to chat about writing and other things. I also updated previous goals to higher dollar amounts. The first goal is now $500, and instead of monthly flash fiction, it will be posted as I have time to write it. The second goal is now $1000, and this would be something that I would make available on Twitch to paid subscribers and patrons.


Overall Changes

The biggest change to the Patreon is that I am no longer going to commit to a monthly quota of posts or content. I will add content as I can, based on the amount of time I have each month to work on it, so some months may have more content than others. Regardless of the amount of content posted, you will be charged at the beginning of each month, every month. I will not pause the billing cycle if I am unable to produce content.

With these changes, I hope to be able to better manage my Patreon content by streamlining rewards with work I am already doing that is easy to post here, and only adding occasional extra things when I have extra time instead of stressing to complete so many items each month, every month.

I hope these changes are acceptable for all of you, and if you have any questions or comments about these changes, please let me know!

Much love,

Brooke
