Many of you have been with me since the start and thus know that I’ve been posting The Dragon Wars Saga twice a week without fail since the 4th January 2010. I’ve also posted all of the first novel of my paranormal fantasy series “The Haventon Chronicles” and I’m currently posting a Science Fantasy Space Opera Serial “The Whisper of Damkina”.
The only money I’ve got out of this so far is from the crowdfunding campaigns to fund book versions of the first two arcs of the Dragon Wars Saga, a few book sales and a couple of donations. This didn’t bother me since I had a decently paid day job.
Unfortunately from 30th June 2014 the day job is going away.
The company I work for is restructuring and closing the site I work at. I have a decent severance package so I’m not panicking (much) but this is obviously far from an ideal situation since I’m competing with around 500 other people who’ve also been made redundant for what jobs there are out there.
If there was ever a time to start making a living from my writing this is it. At the very least it needs to start paying for itself.
So I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask my readers.
You read my stuff so you presumably enjoy it, so if you have some spare pennies each month (I know not everyone does) consider pledging some of them to me each month to help me pay my web hosting and living expenses. If you don’t have any money scroll down for other ways you can help.
You can do this via my Patreon Page in US dollars.
If you don’t have any money to spare and you want to help then spread the word about my stuff. Word of mouth is the best marketing. 🙂
- Tell your friends how much you love my stuff
- Tell your enemies how much you hate my stuff and would never give me money X-D
- Write reviews of my books
- Signal boost on social media
And now for your edification a video of me looking fat and saying much what I’ve said in this post.Â Thank you for your time.
