Graves Publications on Patreon

 

So, I took the leap and created myself a Patreon page. Why did I think that was going to be so hard? Because IT WAS!!!

I’ve spent the better part of a year trying to come up with some kind of idea as to what to put into a Patreon page that would be worth me asking others to follow along. I studied other author’s pages and knew I couldn’t compete with some of what they were offering. But after a lot of planning, and a lot more trial and error, I think I’m finally happy with something I can offer the masses. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Graves Publications on Patreon.

I’ve set the site up to offer the monthly newsletter to everyone. Free of charge. That way, even if I don’t have any patrons, I still feel like I’m giving back to the community. Is that weird?

In the newsletter, I plan to showcase an Author of the Month, new listings at Online Literary and Poetry Magazines, articles on the craft, and any new projects I’ve got in the works. It’s been a long time since I put together a newsletter, but I’ve got to give it a shot.

I’m also planning on offering ads in my newsletter and maybe on my sites, but I’m not quite there yet. I have a few more details I want to work out in those departments, just to make sure it’s fair to everyone involved. I might do a few “free ads” as a trial run before I make any final decisions.

Do any of you have a Patreon site? I love to see them and see how you set your pages up. I know the first couple of months will be hit or miss, but I’m still going for it. I’m only a subscriber to one Patreon page, but it’s a magazine I love reading and want to do what I can to keep it going.

Are you an author who’d like to be considered for my “Author of the Month”? Leave me a comment on this post or send me an email at gravespublications@gmail.com with “Author of the Month” in the subject line. I’d be over the moon if I had to start adding more than one author a month.

Okay, so I’ve told you about the free newsletter, but what’s a patron going to get? Oh, I’m so glad you asked.

I’ve set it up as a 5-Level page.

Level 1 ($5 per month)
Monthly Newsletter
10 3-Objects Writing Prompts

Level 2 ($10 per month)
Monthly Newsletter

Level 3 ($15 per month)
Monthly Newsletter

10 Headlines Ideas

Level 4 ($20 per month)
Monthly Newsletter

Level 5 ($25 per month)

The number of prompts may go up in the future, but not the price. I’ve never been a greedy person and believe a person should be thankful for whatever they’re given in instances like this.

So, I invite you to stop by my new Patreon page and check it out for yourself. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

Until next time,
Happy Writing
