I disappeared for a while, and I’m sorry! Not sure I have very many readers on here yet to be disappointed, but I still should have checked in! I got overwhelmed with Camp NaNoWriMo. In the end, I didn’t finish–but I DID write all but the last 10k words of The Daffodil Witch, and only have 3 chapters left to do now.
Also, revisions. SO MANY REVISIONS ARE PLANNED.
After Camp NaNo, I read up on #PitchWars and decided “I’m gonna do this!!”
Then, I had a talk with one of my incredible beta readers, who is taking the extra time and effort to help me make my book the best it can be! His advice has been invaluable, and I have decided not to do #PitchWars but to sit back and take my time really working on this Manuscript! I’m a little sad to miss out on the possibility of a mentorship and an agent pitch round, but I think it is better for me in the long run to do this right!
In addition to all that, I have decided after a long back and forth in my head that I will be setting up a Patreon! I had thought about it a few times after people recommended it to me, but I was always wary of it. I don’t want to come across as money-hungry by any means, but after a lot of consideration, I think that a Patreon account for me could mean a strong community of readers and friends to help me in my journey to publication!
That being said, I want to make it worth your while to support me on Patreon!
I have decided to move Pride and Prejudice over to the Patreon account. I think that I have so few readers now that no one will mind, but if you do think it’s a bad idea or unfair by any means, please comment here and I will hear you out!!
I will also offer patrons other rewards for different tiers. I am still working out how I plan to set it up, but I am thinking of all different things: personalized birthday cards, sneak peaks into scenes and chapters of my novel in progress, character art prints, magnets, postcards, etc every few months, and more.
Do you have any recommendations? Things you’d LOVE to see me put on my Patreon account? LET ME KNOW!
I am hoping to have it set up by this weekend, but I take forever to make decisions so don’t be surprised if it takes longer than I expect.
Also I WILL BE BLOGGING AGAIN. Now that I am not under a panicked timeline, I will pick back up on the blogging and my next one will likely be about my cat MacKenzie. Hopefully by Monday! 🙂
LOVE YOU ALL! ❤
