Thank you for taking a peek into my Patreon world!

I’m using Patreon because I'm not comfortable with the idea of being beholden to sites like Facebook and Instagram. We need more wholesome, independent sites that nurture creativity, instead of advertising and playing on a "compare-and-despair" ethos of insecurity. I have my own website, where you can get on the mailing list and still get updates and insight into my work for free, but I wanted to create an 'Inner Circle' of special people who get first access (and indeed entirely unique content that I don't share elsewhere) to my work.

So I’m experimenting with Patreon to keep you in the loop with my writing/books, recording/songwriting and making videos. The beauty of Patreon is that you can experiment too: you can cancel at any time, elect to donate on a one-off basis here instead or donate to some other project that takes your fancy.

If you do decide to play along with this experiment and claim your preferred fashionista style and creative swag, I THANK YOU. Truly, Madly, Deeply. You are a believer. A dreamer. An outlier. I commend you for your courage and sense of adventure. You are extraordinary!!

DAMN. You are really putting yourself out there to get the best stuff, and you will not be held back by doubts that patterns, stripes and colour won't go together. I take my hat off to you. And deeply, gratefully offer you this:
  • Personalised improvised song (VIDEO) via private YouTube link
  • Exclusive pre-release of Love Poems/dating/lifestyle -related podcast content
  • Exclusive pre-release preview of my third book
  • Original pencil / charcoal drawing

My god, you are the ultimate, ballsy rebel aren't you? You aren't afraid of the power, intimacy and inspiration that this kind of investment affords you. You just contributed to covering a huge chunk of my recording costs, for a start. Your name will go down in history as a serious benefactor and not only will the pop music gods be singing your name, but this will be given unto you:
  • One-to-one monthly online or in-person dating/relationships or "ask me anything" chat (like my Tuesday FB live one, but just you and me, a glass of wine and a specially selected poem read out to you and a chance to get my opinion on the thoughts swirling around your head)
  • Original poem written for you and handwritten in a customised journal JUST FOR YOU
  • One monthly coaching call / in-person session in the subject of your choice (book-writing, singing, songwriting, poetry or self-publishing) for you or a friend
  • Personal mention on any CDs or blurb about music I release
  • Plus all previous rewards
Vivienne Westwood (Goddess/God) Level!

Just like the woman herself, there can only be one YOU. You are a serious investor, with a taste for fine wine and scintillating conversation all dressed up in a quirky-classic dinner outfit. I am in AWE of your generosity and seriousness of support. You will get EVERYTHING. Absolutely everything.* PLUS:
  • Three monthly coaching calls / in-person session in the subject of your choice (book-writing, singing, songwriting, poetry or self-publishing) for you or a friend
  • Dinner with me and my (hopefully) scintillating conversation over wine and a three-course meal!
  • My A3-sized bound scrapbook full of NYTimes cutouts and handwritten notes, poems and drawings (unique!) which has been a source of inspiration and amusement to me
  • Plus all previous rewards
*Disclaimer: that doesn't include sleeping with you. Sorry. I just meant everything listed on this page. Lol
Goals
$9 of $10 per month
When I reach my first $10 I will go to a cafe and spend an hour writing a brand new poem and record myself reading it on the streets of New York or London exclusively for my Patrons.
