I probably should announce here that I just launched my very own Patreon. It took me a while, because I honestly didn’t know if I should. I am in the very privileged place of being able to write for the pleasure of writing and not needing to worry about trying to make ends meet with my craft.
Don’t get me wrong. I would love to get paid for my writing. It carries with it a certain feeling of success. (It shouldn’t, but it does.) And every once in a while, I do get paid when someone happens to buy one of my books.
However, I want this Patreon to be different. I have decided to offer a single tier option for my supporters – $1 a month – and every dollar I receive from my Patreon will be used to support other writers in my community. Because frankly, they all need it more than I do right now. (I haven’t figured out who or where the money will go to yet, but that will come in due time.) I plan on sharing some of my trunked short stories and poetry and pictures of my dog. I might even throw out some pearls of wisdom on writing in general. But, mostly, there will be pictures of my dog and short fiction.
So, if you want to become a supporter of my Patreon and help me support other writers in my community, go to patreon.com/AmandaCookWrites and click on “Become a Patron”. And spread the word, if you can.
Thanks for reading.
