Calling all Mutineers, Insurgents, and Renegades! If you’re looking to support TC Marti and a growing number of authors in a fight to keep the free flow of fiction alive, you can do so for as little as $2/month.
Did You Know?
Self-published and indie authors alike are constantly rushing to push more stories through the pipeline to make ends meet?
Because an Evil Empire lurks currently drives the eBook market. And every day, that Evil Empire locks both authors and readers like you inside an iron grip. And every day, that Evil Empire takes more and more control of the eBook market.
So how do we battle the Evil Empire?
Patreon is one way self-published and indie authors are gearing up to take back control.
How Patreon Helps Me and You
Patreon gives me full control of what I dish out with higher royalties attached. The Evil Empire lets authors keep between 35% and 70% of earned royalties – and less than a half-cent per page read if the author enrolls in their subscription program! With Patreon, I earn over 90% in royalties.
Patreon provides a more dependable source of income. As a full-time writer, if I’m not making money, I’m not paying the bills. Sales fluctuate when the Evil Empire (constantly) changes its algorithms. That said, the income can come and go. With Patreon, my income remains more consistent while I can also consistently churn out more breathtaking tales in the Elementals Universe for you to enjoy.
How does Patreon help me share more content? Right now, my superfans despise the Evil Empire’s serialized subscription services; and it’s not a viable means of income for most authors. All serialized fiction, short stories, and even BONUS NOVELS in the Elementals Universe that doesn’t pertain to the characters in my main series goes straight to Patreon – and I publish AT LEAST one story per month on the site.
Patreon lets you own my full-length novels! The Evil Empire doesn’t actually let you own eBooks; you’re purchasing a license for the right to read. Believe it or not, they can delete all the content from your reading device if they feel like it. Patreon helps counteract this issue. Any of my work that you download as a benefit of the site is yours forever, and no one can take it away from you.
Patreon ensures you can read on the device of your choosing. Not just the Evil Empire’s device, but Kobo eReaders, Nook Books, Apple devices, and even your laptop. That said, if I’m ever forced into the Evil Empire’s subscription service (my superfans decide that fate), there’s a little loophole that will still let me deliver all my content to you if you read on other devices.
