I’ve done a variety if things with it. I’ve released audio fiction, including classic literature. I tried getting my audience to pick the topic of short stories that I’ve written.
Currently I am using Patreon to release fiction in a serial format, as I am doing with Vella.
Vella is an Amazon serial fiction venue, but is only available to readers in the USA. Patreon allows me to put that same fiction out for people beyond those borders.
Currently this is what I have on offer.
At the $3 per month level, I am releasing The Illuminal’s Daughters, my post apocalyptic parahuman librarian story. Supporters get two serial episodes a week.
At the $5 per month level, you get the Illuminal’s Daughters, and Wychwood Sisters. This is my second serial fiction release. This is more in the vein of Chasing the Bard. It is a historical fantasy, set in a Regency England setting. Ancient magical forests act as wells of power to those that dare to go under its boughs. Patreons get two serial episodes a week of that too.
I could rattle on about how I love the concept of patreon and it makes me feel like William Shakespeare (he had his own set of patrons, though I am sure he would have loved to use this model), but all you really need to do is go check it out. A few dollars a month can help support writerly experimentation, and still cost you less than a cup of coffee.
