Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
A quick tumblr-reminder :) I’ve never run a kickstarter, but I’ve certainly backed a lot of them. And now, here I am - leaping into the scary world of crowdfunding and exposing my soft underbelly to its whims. *quiver*
Patreon is a little different to KS or indiegogo. It’s not about one amount for one completed product…it’s a support system for creators producing regular content like webcomics, videos, photography and blogs. No lump sum payments for backers, but a regular income for campaign runners. Sort of genius and simple for all sides! You can pledge a monthly amount. If you would normally offer an average of $20 for a kickstarter, why not pledge $2 a month for ten months on patreon? Or just $1 a month for a whole year is an equivalent to offering a $12 donation on kickstarter - and that pledge ensures that content remains free and regular. And, should targets be met, combined pledges may mean more pages! More often! Your pledge amount may also get you automatic copies of collected editions. More than anything, it means that the creator you’re becoming a patron of feels inspired, loved and motivated. :)
So if you’re reading and enjoying BREAKS or just want to show some support for my work for as little as $1 a month, with a chance to earn some rewards - here’s your chance! ^_^ With the printed prologue due any day, it’s a good time to jump in, as your pledge may send a copy winging its way to you.
At the time of writing this I have 16 patrons. And each and every one of them is a star and I love them. But go on…be the one to prove to me that more than 16 amazing people in the whole world are willing to support the work I do ^_^
