Not too long ago I decided to open up a Patreon account and try to do some crowd-funding through it. Then YouTube zapped Steven Crowder – because some internet dolt who fancies himself a journalist got his feelz hurt. This was followed with Patreon starting to play games with my account.
So I deleted it and decided to wait until I had returned from vacation to rethink my approach. To the best of my knowledge, WordPress and PayPal, haven’t been playing these games with me. So, we’ll try this instead.
I’ll be posting here more regularly. I’ll also be running what I call the “1K Weekly Serials” – think the old serials that ran in the movie theaters back in the days before every house had a TV.
Each week – every Saturday morning – the next chapter of the story will be posted. It will be no less – and often more – than 1,000 words in length. To give you a taste of things to come, this Sat., Aug. 3rd, I will run a 1,300-word short story called “Death On The Range” a nice little western/sci-fi/horror appetizer for your consumption.
On Aug. 10th, the first chapter of “Legacy of Death” will post. Once all of the chapters (10-12) have posted, then comes “The Invited”. Once it is done, a new story will begin. One chapter, 1,000 words or more, every Saturday. This in addition to any posts commenting on news and issues, updates on pending releases, etc.
And what will it cost? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. It’s free to read.
Now, if you decide there is value here, I do have a PayPal.Me account and you can send whatever amount you want. It can be a one-time payment, or you can set it up for X amount per month. That amount is completely up to you. And even if you chose not to make a payment, that’s fine too.
Here’s the link to my PayPal.Me account.
If you’d like to be added to my e-mail list, just drop me a line here: Richard’s E-mail List with “Add me to the list” in the subject line and you are all set.
Later down the line I’ll be releasing some “swag” – pins, buttons, etc. – that you can purchase through my PayPayMe account too. Stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, enjoy the posts and the stories.
