Patreon?

I’m considering getting a Patreon account. It is getting harder for me to afford the costs to produce these books. What I’d like to know is, would anyone be interested in this? And what would you like in exchange for patronage?

Two of the possible rewards I’ve thought of so far are:

  • Included in the Acknowledgments section in my forthcoming books
  • Sneak Peak at Works-in-Progress

If you don’t know, Patreon is a crowdfunding site–like a virtual tip jar–for various creators to have their creative works funded per month and in exchange you–the patron–get perks.
