Guess What?

I'm excited to announce that I've been working on a secret project for the past few months.

In truth, it's been longer than that, if you count the year I've been just thinking about doing it.

I'm starting a podcast for writers. For indie authors specifically. And with the podcast (which I'm hoping to launch in March 2019), I'll be asking for patronage.

Patronage? Yes. Like, Patron of the Arts patronage.

Even if you aren't an author, or even if you don't like the content of my books--maybe I'm just not your thing, you can still join my behind the scenes author journey through Patreon.com.

What I like about Patreon is just that. I have an author friend whom I like to support. But I've bought all his books, sometimes in multiple formats. I've bought his books as gifts for my friends and family. And I've been to all his readings and book signings. I didn't know how else to support him and the work he does. Until he started a Patreon page.

Now I can support him every month (one dollar at a time) and feel all warm and squishy inside knowing that I am helping to support a fellow author and that I've become a Patron of the Arts. Which is totally cool.

If you want to know more about Patreon, watch this short and cool video.

Keep watch here for news of when my personal Patreon page is up and running. Right now I'm creating lots of cool benefits to joining the community, and I can't wait to give you a sneak peek when it's ready.
