Is This The Official “I’ve Made It” Moment?

Something cool happened 😊

Besides the whole releasing-my-book-last-week thing (which was great and we’ll get to that in a minute), I had someone sign on as a new patron. For those who don’t remember the several two occasions I might have mentioned it, I’m on Patreon, a platform for patrons to support the artists they like, and in turn, get various rewards or goodies (most enjoy behind-the-scenes/extra content). And we, the artists, get to create and share our work with people we know will enjoy it and it helps keep the lights on. So. Win-win.

I’ve had two patrons for the last few months and they have been AWESOME. But now, someone I don’t know read my books and liked them enough to GIVE ME MONEY. Not only that, she sent me a message telling me she loved both BTT & BTN, was looking forward to BTY, and was really excited about the bonus content she signed on for.

Let’s review:

A person (I don’t know) wants to give me money so I can write more of what I love?

Is this the official “I’ve made it” moment? I can’t tell. I thought it would have been the release of Escape From Harrizel, or would it have been my first two patrons on here? GAH—I don’t know! But it feels awesome, and it’s going to kick my butt in gear to get my Patreon going the way I want. Guys—I got a new patron! And she’s already requesting certain scenes from different POVs! Which she can do! Click here to lurk in the shadows while you scour my Patreon page.

The book release: I think I sold a whopping 1 copy on the actual day, which is pretty reflective of the zero advertising I did. The good thing is that I can continue to advertise going forward while I prepare for the third book’s release in November and kick ass over at my Patreon page and maintain this lovely weekly blog and go to work, take care of Batman and Appa and have a social life. I GOT THIS. And if I don’t, I have wine, so, all is well. 😊

BUT GUYS I HAVE A NEW PATRON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More to come. 😊

    Awesome!!! In case you haven’t noticed, the “I made it moment” keeps moving. Next it will be when you get your second new patron, or when you get a review on a blog you don’t know, or when you get a fan message on FB or when you win fan voted awards (I am waiting on that one still, LOL!) etc etc.

    Congrats on the release! I bought my copy but my kindle is dead and I cannot find the cord. I may have to try to install a kindle app if I can’t find it by this weekend!! (damn samsung for not having the same cords as kindle…)
