I could make a different Smashwords coupon code for a free book each month for backers of $1 per month... but seeing as I only have about three books I can offer for that (as of now), that reward wouldn't pay off for patrons after the three month mark.
I'm thinking of selling my ideas to the patrons offering the maximum amount. Kinda like James Patterson, only I wouldn't demand top billing as author. Just a mention in the dedication, maybe. hehe Or better yet, an ad for my Patreon page.
Some Patreon creators post every day... I'm terrible about that. I don't even post on my social media every day! Sometimes weeks or even months go by before I update my official website here... It seems like too much work, and I am so lazy.
I'm thinking... There's got to be some way of running a Patreon page that doesn't require constant attention. I guess I could assign the position to someone else... but I don't know anyone who WOULD. It's up to me... dammit.
Every writing coach instructs writers to build an online platform. And I have a website/blog, plus accounts on Smashwords, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, YouTube, tumblr... and I neglect them all. But maybe Patreon will be different! We'll see... Stay tuned and once I have the video posted and rewards in place, I'll share the link.
