Happy New Year to you all! Thank you to my December patrons, who have an extra reason to celebrate 2018–access to a weekly newsletter and exclusive creative content. Though there numbers are few, their influence is outsize:
-Dr. Elizabeth Shely
Join their ranks today to help make more content here at True Crime Librarian possible. Patrons have already made it possible to eliminate ads from the blog.
Special thanks to my November Patrons! Their support helps keep the lights on at this blog. Each and every one of you is a (festive) star:
Join their ranks today! Along with supporting my shortstories and poetry, all patrons get access to a weekly creator newsletter and monthly recognition here on the blog. Other levels get access to exclusive content by me and a share in creative control.
Because of your unwavering support, I have decided to devote more time to this blog, making sure to get work out to you on a weekly basis.
(For real, this time, I swear)
To help support my work, I have launched a page on Patreon!
For those of you unfamiliar with Patreon, it is an online platform that allows fans to become patrons of their favorite creators. (I hope I might be one of yours, dear reader)
In exchange for their monthly pledge, patrons get access to rewards, in addition to extreme bragging credit. You are following the footsteps of the Venetian Doges and the Medicis by supporting the arts!
With less murder, of course.
For just $1 a month, patrons will receive a mention in a special edition of this blog every month they are a patron. If you are interested in your business or organization taking the credit, reach out to me by DM on Patreon.
$5 a month gets you access to a weekly patron newsletter and plenty of behind-the-scenes looks into my creative process: drafts, inspiration sources, angst. It’s more of the writing you know and love, even before your patronage helps me produce even more of the writing you know and love.
There’s a virtuous cycle here, you see.
Patreon is going to be especially important for me so I can put together a real, physical “To-Review Queue” have the resources to buy all the books, etc. It will also keep me accountable to a schedule and order for reviews.
Because when you owe people money, you type faster.
