If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s basically a website that allows creators to connect with fans, and for fans to support creators so they can continue to produce content.
I love it because it gives me a way to reward my ‘patrons’ with different gifts and tokens of thanks. And since it’s not social media based, there’s a more intimate feel to the conversations taking place there.
For a limited time, new Patrons who pledge over $15 will get a complimentary copy of the eBook!
Patrons who pledge $5 or more receive priority responses to their questions! Just fill out this form or email me directly with your questions and photos. (Be sure to let me know you’re one of my patrons.) Our exchanges will be shared in a post on Patreon so everyone can so that others can learn along with us!
