I’ve been looking for a way to help pay for editing and covers on my books, and I dislike Patreon because they censor authors with erotic or ‘too dark’ of content. You need to have the author’s direct link to their Patreon or you won’t be able to find it to join!
Note that I neither write erotica nor dark content, but it’s the principal of the matter. It bothers me.
So, when Ream was started to create the same service without the censorship, I jumped on board. I want them to know that I wholeheartedly support their efforts.
And publishing, ya’ll, it ain’t cheap. I have three books I want to roll out this year and… it’s expensive.
So I set up a subscription, the lowest tier of which is the absolute lowest Ream let’s you go: $3. I call it the ‘I Like You But Not THAT Much’ Tier.
All income from this subscription goes directly into book publishing costs.
It generally costs me about $1500 to edit, proof read, format, and create a cover per book. I plan to put out THREE this year, and some of that is sunk cost that I’ve already put in, but I have NO idea how I’m going to be able to afford it.
So here’s the ask. Do you like me enough to send $3 a month my way? If not, that’s fair, but if so, that would be AMAZING.
I do have higher tiers where you can receive my audiobooks or books in progress, but let’s face it. Even $3 is a big ask right now.
I’m hoping you’ll give it a look see to find out if it’s right for you.
