First, thank you for even coming here. My top priority with my original work has always been that it is freely accessible to people who want it. That priority has not changed for me. I've created this patreon page to provide early release content and downloadable content, for those who choose to pledge.

Let me stress; you do not need to pledge to read my work. All of my work, including future Chrissy books, will remain free to read. The only thing that is changing is, new works will be uploaded to the public as an entire piece instead of chapter by chapter. Please note that pledging charges you the day you sign up and you will have full access to the tier you pledge to, then will continue on the first of every month like normal.
Starting August 1st, 2018 the Tier structure will be as follows:

Tier 1 - The DLC Tier. You get immediate access to the print-ready content in PDF, Epub or MOBI file formats.

Tier 2 - The Preview Tier. You get read-only access to work in progress books, chapter by chapter as I complete them. You get to read these stories months before the general public and once the story is complete you get access to the downloadable format of the newly completed book a full month before the work is published to print.

Tier 3 - The Behind the Scenes Tier. This tier gives you access to all of the little notes, sketches that help plan out scenes (or doodles that help break down writing blocks), my thought processes which brought about plot lines and little easter-egg stuff that I think a lot of people miss because it is super little. (puns)

I am also releasing Audiobooks of this series as well as other rewards that are patron-only accessible.

I considered long and hard before implementing this plan, alternatives would have limited the community's access, and that didn't sit right with me. I think this is a fair way to let people who feel Chrissy's worth to show it, even in a small way, and make her still be available for those who need Chrissy, but don't have the means.

This tier provides access to completed print-ready works in downloadable PDF, EPub and MOBI formats. This tier is retroactive and you will get access to all available files once this pledge is made. The public pays $5.00 plus for digital on Amazon and they only offer ePub. This tier also gives you instant access to deeply discounted and or at cost merchandise, including Chrissy inspired apparel, mugs and paperback versions of the series.
Preview Tier
$2 or more per month 16 patrons
This is the chapter-by-chapter early release for new work-in-progress stories. With this tier you will get a super secret hidey notification (email) that a new chapter is available and will have unlimited read-only access to all chapters as they are released to this tier. This preview gives you access to rough work in progress books as the story is written. Final-final draft will be provided once the story is completely finished a full month before made available to the public.

This reward is given as each chapter is finished.

With a 3$ pledge, you will get rewards from Tier 1 (unlimited read-only access to work in progress books), plus you get access to the Behind the Scenes materials, my notes and a deeper understanding of how Life with Chrissy came about and my insane way of organizing plot lines. lol  This reward will be given as each Chapter is finished and will include spoilers to all completed works.
