It's a sad fact of self-employment- when you are a sole proprietor when something happens you can't work and consequently you don't make money. I accepted that a long time ago, and this isn't supposed to be about pity or charity. It's about a voluntary contribution for value recieved.
So- don't sign on because we've hit a hiccup in our finances; we wouldn't recieve the funds in time to do any good anyway. But if you value my content, my work or fiction and you can spare a bit each month to help keep it coming by all means. That's why this campaign is here, after all!
