So, as you may know, my dream is to be able to make a living writing.
I’ve been writing for a long time. I’ve written romance, fantasy, science fiction, erotica, and fan fiction. A lot of it never made the transition from paper to computer. Some I deleted on purpose, and most of it has been lost due to various dead computers. Which is the reason I get an affection erection every time I use DropBox!
A little over a year ago, I started this page, and my twitter. Since then I’ve published three ebooks to Amazon, and 4 short stories. In that time I’ve also moved twice, had a chaotic relationship, and lost two loved ones. So most of the past year I haven’t been able to write.
Things are finally calming down. *knock on wood* and I’ve been able to focus on writing. I have started two potential books, and am in the middle of another short story, which should be done soon.
Amazon has been pretty hit and miss so far, but I’m sure thats mostly due to lack of content on there. Unfortunately, there are only so many hours in a day, and I have to spend most of them at work. So that’s led me to doing something I’ve been thinking about for a little while now.
I had originally planned on holding off until I had more of a catelogue built up, but I’ve gone ahead and created a Patreon page. https://www.patreon.com/elizabethluxe
For those of you that do not know, Patreon is like kickstarter for artists. You sign up and make a pledge. This can be as little as $1 per month, or as much as you want. Each month, Patreon collects those pledges, takes a small cut, and passes the rest along to me.
For as little as $1 per month, you help support my writing, get access to special Patreon only stories, and get to feel all warm and fuzzy.
There are perks for pledging. At $3 per month you get to read my short stories 48 hours before they appear here. At $5 per month you get to suggest themes and topics for future storeis, at $10 per month you get entered into a raffle to win a 1000 word commission.
