Tip Tier

This tier is for those who just want to help out or leave a tip. The subscribers to this level will get occasional posts, mostly things that I don't want to share with the general public, just contributors.

Standard Tier

Subscribers at this level will get to see what I'm currently working on. Once a week (typically on Friday - though sometimes I'm late) I'll post the current story that I'm writing. Complete with editorial notes and other markup. So you get to see the inner workings of my writing process and see the story as it develops. (occasionally I will miss a post, if I'm not working on anything).

Features

  • Once I have this page set up properly, there will be two tiers offered for subscribers, a $1 level for those who just want to help support me and a $5 level for those who want to see the inner workings of my writing process.

how many $5 subscribers are unable to see the $1 subscriber post I made several days ago?
I think the problem is that they changed the way posts work here. I just went back and reflagged that post - hopefully you can see it here.
I just wish they'd get email notifications working.
