The State Of The Patreon
I just received my first Patreon payment: Apr 1, 2014 at 2:00 am +$1,046.52 processed to your account from your patrons. $1,167.30 Pledged / $62.40 CC Fees / $58.38 Patreon ...and I just wanted to share some updates about what's going on with my Patreon and the various rewards I'm currently working on. 3 COMICS A WEEK: So far I've been pretty awful at this. So far in March we've had a hail storm that damaged both our cars, and our roof. We spent a night huddled in the closet due to tornado warnings, and a few days dealing with insurance, roofers, etc. Then I finsihed a comic and my laptop died before I could upload it. THEN my wife's hard drive died the next day. I spent several days scrambling to fix these issues. Bottom line is I am almost caught up on last week's comics and I will have 3 more for this week before the weekend is over (barring an act of universal chaos). Excuses, excuses, blah, blah, blah I need to work harder. eBooks: I just uploaded the first 2 eBooks for $5+ Patrons to download. Check the activity stream to get the links. There will be a new eBook before April is over and one new one a month until I run out of material (which should be at least a year or more). Video Blogs: Working on having at least 2 this month, if not the full 3. Post your questions in the comments concerning "Comic Conventions," "The Hardware/tech I use to make comics" and any suggestions for a quick and dirty cover song. You can also post these to #HEVB on twitter. Patron Only Hangout: How about Wednesday night 4/16 for about an hour? I will post the link here in the activity feed. HijiNKS HANGOUT: I have two planned for this month. One with David Willis ( and Angela Melick ( and another one with guest(s) TBD. Post questions for the guests, or future guest suggestions in the comments here or on twitter with #HijiNKSHangout That's a lot for the next 2.5 weeks (until I have to do it all over again for May), but you Fancy Patrons have been more than generous and I aim to keep up with my side of the bargain.
