I’ve spent plenty of time recently talking about Scars Of Shadow, my next dark fantasy serial.
I’ve spent even longer talking about how I want to start a Patreon page.
Last year, I learned a lot about how Smashwords works and just what it can offer.
By April 1, 2017, I’ll be making use of all three.
Having mentioned a Patreon campaign several times, you would think I would have such a thing in place by now.
The title says it all.
I’m starting a Patreon page soon. I’m going to offer perks–patrons have to get something out of the process.
What I need is an idea of what people would like from me on a monthly scale.
In the Renaissance, art and culture were funded by those with wealth acting as patrons for the artisans. In many ways, this was the ultimate form of “know your audience,” since the artist had to please one person, though anyone could enjoy what was created. Those who had the funds could keep the artisans creating instead of dividing efforts between art and other work.
I wish there was something like that now, something that could fund my writing.
