So I've finally set up a Patreon page
. If you're unfamiliar with it, it's a way for fans to financially support artists, fanfic writers and original-fiction writers, bloggers, etc. As part of the rewards, I will be posting some stories/story chapters/ficlets on Patreon first, and then publishing that content here and on AO3 six months or a year later. (The first ficlet has already been posted!) If you're interested in contributing to my campaign, go check it out, and know that you will have my eternal gratitude! Contribution amounts start at $1/month. If you're hesitant, I'll include Patreon links on my story chapters from here on out, so you can think about it for a while.FAQ:The campaign is set up for monthly contributions. Can I just contribute once?
Pretty much, yes. You would make a pledge, and then after you are charged for it (generally the first of the month), you can cancel your pledge to prevent future charges.Will ALL stories/story chapters be posted on Patreon only/first now?
No. My ongoing series stories and the stories I've already begun here, like tall, dark and dangerous and Red Label, will always be free and available to anyone regardless of Patreon. I will share story snippets and notes with Patreon backers, but the actual chapters and story sections will be on AO3 and LJ, like they have been. I think it's unfair to charge you for accessing content you've already started reading this way. (That's also part of the reason I wasn't very comfortable with changing nothing else but this into an original series... Patreon is a much more comfortable alternative.)
If you have any other questions or concerns, let me know! (Also, this is the only Patreon post I intend on making; I don't want to spam community members with this.)
If you are broke and the only way you can support my writing is by reading and giving feedback, believe me - kudos/likes are great, and feedback is amazing, so I'm incredibly grateful for it. :)
If other nancydrewfic
members have Patreon accounts supporting Nancy Drew-based content and would like some publicity, I'd be happy to list you in the sticky post on this community. Just let me know in the comments.
Happy June! :)
