So, I have a question for you all, and I’m hoping to gather your feedback on it.
I’m considering starting a Patreon account that compliments the erotica stories I write. This is a separate thing from the eBooks I sell, as an optional thing for anyone who wishes to participate. It by no means changes how I publish.
If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s a place where creators can gather people who are patrons, people who financially support creators and, in return, receive unique perks and thank-yous.
So here are some of the perks I have in mind so far (to gather your feedback on). They start at $1/month and goes up, depending on the tier. If you have any suggestions on perks, please leave them in the comments below. These may not be the final version, FYI.
-Receive one free story a month before anyone else gets to read it. You also get access to three (or ten, depending on the tier) back catalog free stories instantly.
-Receive a second free story a month (on a different tier).
-Have the ability to periodically vote on which story comes next.
-Have the ability to name a character in one of my stories.
-Have the ability to decide the plot or an element of the plot in one of my stories, such as the setting. I’ll work with you on it to make sure I haven’t already done it before, etc.
-(This one is for an advanced patron/donation category) Once a month, I’ll Skype with you for one hour to coach you on your erotica writing. I’ll coach, offer specific advice, gameplan marketing and launch strategies, and offer critique for your writing. I can even write-rewrite sections of your own writing for you, if you wish, within the time allotted. Writing and publishing will be the only subjects discussed (in a professional manner). No video function–chat only. Remain anonymous, if you wish.
Please express your opinion below! It’s completely anonymous and helps me out a lot.
