Now we’re talking!

Do you love the arts? Do you think that artists should be paid for their work and that work makes our society beautiful and worth living in? I sure do! (Or else I wouldn’t write.) Well, I just found a site to help artists of all kinds find people who value them and will support their work: Patreon!

Do you love my writing? If you do, become my patron! For just $1 or $3 a month (or more if you rock) you can be just like Lorenzo Di Medici and help artists create. The hairdo is optional.

Just click this button! (Or look to the right and click on Lorenzo in the sidebar.)

If you are an artist, poet, musician, or writer, or whatever art form you love, create your own page!
Connect with my link and I will get a bonus!

Here’s my page:

Do you have a page now? Did you become a patron? Share your link below!

Kickstarter for Authors

A few weeks ago, my hubby suggested a site called Kickstarter to help me raise money for my upcoming launch this summer. It sounded like a great idea, but also scary. I found it hard to picture how an author would accomplish a successful project asking for other people’s money on this site.

Then, Rosa Sophia gave me a great link to an author’s site who had posted a project for funding on Kickstarter:

There are a lot of people that this filtered through!

This article gave me the information connection I needed to start my own project! I really needed some concrete examples of how this site was used specifically for books. I think the site felt a little overwhelming to me because there is SO MUCH there. This post gave me the boost I needed!

Here is the link to my preview: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/523666041/1833955108?token=a9bf8e88

Please let me know what you think about this preview! Does it look like something you would contribute to? Am I missing information? Could I word it better? Is the photo too abstract, or does it represent well my concept? (This isn’t my cover art.) Is the ball of energy too orange?

I plan to make a video, but my voice is all scratchy with a cold so I’ll try that in the next few days.
