Support a Writer & Join Patreon

Patreon is an essential platform for all writers. It allows you to build up a personalised relationship with your fans.

I set up my Patreon a number of months ago. I am pleased with the progress, my patrons are valuable to me. However, it has not grown at the speed I would have liked. Some areas work, some have not.

As with everything, growth and change are inevitable. Having read a brilliant book my Mason Sabre on the subject I have spent the day updating it.

 For anyone who is setting up Patreon, I would strongly suggest you read — An Author’s Guide to Patreon

My Patreon

Supporters $1

This is the basic tier. I ask writers on my publications to support me through this tier.

I belong to Patreon for several publications I write for. For me it’s a no brainer, I make money from the hard work of the editor, why would I not give back. I’m shocked by how many writers don’t think like this.

The rewards at this level are as follows:

  • Support my writing, publications and groups.
  • Friend links to all my articles behind the paywall.
  • Advanced previews of my books.
  • As a writer on my publications, you will get full editing on all your posts within the publication as well as social media promotion.

Writers $5

Originally this was the tier I used for my mentoring program. I have removed the weekly lessons from this tier. The uptake on them was non-existent anyway. None of the current subscribers has shared any of the tasks. I have also reduced the monthly subscription.

The rewards at this level are as follows: 

  • All the benefits from a supporter
  • A writing coach and mentor.
  • Advice and help on structuring and marketing your writing.
  • A dedicated email address where you can email me directly if you have a question, need to bounce ideas with or need advice.

Professional $30

This tier is a new edition. I am going to limit it to 10 patrons at present so I can work fully with them.

The rewards at this level are as follows:

  • All the benefits from the other tiers
  • Detailed beta reading and editing on your posts (up to 10 a month).
  • Detailed beta reading on novels (8 000 words a month).
  • An advisor to help you polish, publish and market your work.
    .

For a limited period of a month, I am also offering all new patrons at writer level and above, the additional gift of a digital copy of both my book and social media marketing guide.
