Today, we are privileged to have many great Renaissance art is full of works which only exist because of powerful patrons.
A patron supports artists of all forms, with money, gifts, efforts and endorsements. In the past, they reserved this position for the wealthiest members of society. Under the Roman Empire they applied the term to persons like Maecenas who supported artists and writers.
Today, writers work to connect directly with their audience. I want to get to know you as you want to read my works. The relationship is significant because I want know what I am doing is impacting the lives of others. It helps buy the caffeine we magically turn into stories.
In this new Renaissance of arts, crowd funding is moving this relationship to the hands of the masses. Just like the relationship between the writer and audience. Often, there’s little support of a writer if they aren’t Traditionally published or seeking publication by gatekeepers who choose what readers want to read based on profit alone.
Backing a writer allows for continuous support as they grow their work without the daily pressures of life. It gives them a way to give back more often and more directly. Love my work and want to support it as a Patreon? Check out the tiers of support.
I look forward giving you more content, more stories and more up close interactions with the characters and their worlds.
Thank you in advance -- this isn't possible without your amazing support.
