CHILLING
$1
per month
Thank you. You get the following:


  • Access to all my private creator posts, past and future. You'll get my news before anyone else and see stuff I mightn't post publicly, plus my various regular updates and check-ins. This content will include posts about my writing process and my thoughts on writing in general. 
  • Whenever humanly possible, you see my Early Access posts, which mainly show you my new YouTube videos (from both channels!) and main newsletter articles, sometimes days early. 
  • Your name goes in a special thanks list on a Patreon page at JasonArnopp.com for the duration of your patronage.
  • An automatic welcome video from me, addressed to all new patrons. 
  • The knowledge that every single dollar helps me to support my nearest and dearest, grow my YouTube channel and make me happier and more secure.
TERRIFYING
$5
per month
How very cool.  You get the Chilling tier's VIP benefits, plus the following:

  • After your first up-front payment, I'll send you a brief, personalised thank you video, just for you. 
  • In every new video I make for my retro YouTube channel while you are a patron, you will be given special thanks by name in a written onscreen caption at the end of the video, for at least several seconds. Immortality: unlocked! 
  • After your first six months of patronage at this level or above, I'll send you a personally-scribbled-on seaside postcard from me in Brighton to celebrate the first half-anniversary of your support! I will then send you a grateful postcard every further six months for the duration of your patronage. (See $10 tier for an extra special option concerning this card!) 
  • Your name will feature in a dedications list in every new edition of my fortnightly newsletter The Necronoppicon.
  • If you like, your name on my site's Patreon page can be linked to the personal social media account of your choice. Just DM me and give me the URL.
  • If you happen to subscribe to my free motivational newsletter Jason Arnopp's Sunday Confession Booth, you will receive a guaranteed response from me within 24 hours, whenever you reply to the newsletter to tell me how your week went (barring some kind of emergency in my world, etc!)   
OH DEAR GOD, WHAT'S THAT AT THE WINDOW
$10
per month
Woo! Thank you.  You get both the previous tiers' VIP benefits, plus these:


  • Remember that postcard $5 patrons get every six months? At this level, you can choose to have it written by any of my characters. As default, this will be the ghost of Jack Sparks, unless you message me here on Patreon to tell me otherwise.
  • Are you a writer or other creative? You get to privately ask me one creativity-related question every month. Just send me a direct message right here on Patreon, making the question as specific as you can, eg, "What's the best way for me to approach the opening chapter of my novel?" and not "How do I write a book?" :)
  • Not only will you receive a special thanks in every new YouTube video I make for my retro YouTube channel, but your name will be at the start of the list, along with your fellow patrons at this level. 
  • In my newsletter dedications list, you are not only thanked, but your name is hot-linked to the business or personal social media account or website of your choice, for the duration of your patronage. Just message me here on Patreon to tell me the URL and I will make this happen.
  • The above also applies to the thank you on the Patreon page of my website - now you can link to a business page.
  • If you include your Twitter info in your Patreon profile, I will publicly sing your praises in a tweet that mentions your @username.

About

UPDATE APRIL 2020: I recognise that this is the very worst time in which to expect financial pledges from anybody. So please, let me emphasise that I do not expect any. If you inexplicably do have disposable income and want to support me, however, then you will be appreciated more than ever before, as I strive to support my family and vulnerable friends. In a drive to give my patrons more than ever before, I've entered May 2020 giving patrons exclusive content, such as extended versions of my YouTube videos. Hope you enjoy, if you decide to become a member here!

Hello, you gorgeous swan! 

You know what? I've written and rewritten this Patreon blurb in several different ways, but ultimately there is no way to coax someone into supporting you on Patreon.

You can't sell Patreon patronage like a book or a Blu-ray.

I know, from my own experience, that I've become a patron of creators myself because I felt strongly that I owed them in some way. Ultimately, all the rewards and tiers weren't all that important. I just wanted to give them something back.

Maybe you already feel that way about my blogs, monthly newsletterSunday Confession Booth mailing listretro YouTube channelwriting/isolation YouTube channel, or my fiction If so, hooray!

Here's one big reason why I like Patreon: direct comms.

Algorithms have made it increasingly difficult for a creator to stay in touch with the people who appreciate what they do. Each social media platform's algorithm determines whether you get to see any given creator's post. Even in email, spam filters can get in on the act to mess up simple communication.

Enter Patreon - a platform that enables creators and their patrons to communicate directly. while also allowing the patrons to heroically support the creators' work.

On Patreon, you can back a creator with a recurring monthly pledge, thereby becoming the creator's 'patron' and taking your place in a growing community.

When you join my new VIP cult – sorry, cough, I totally meant to say club there – here at Patreon, you can access my private creator posts, which offer early access, first news and exclusive, private stuff. You also receive any added benefits associated with the level (or 'tier') at which you've chosen to pledge, including actual physical stuff like thank-you postcards. And we can actually talk, free from all algorithms and filters!

My beloved patrons help me to:
  • feel more secure as a writer of frightening fiction (a fun career, but one whose financial instability is, aptly, terrifying.)
  • grow and improve both my YouTube channels.
  • support my family and other people close to me. This one, in particular, means the absolute world to me - especially in this bewildering current era in which we find ourselves - and I consider my patrons to be major deities.
I'm already excited to have launched a new private cult (goodness me, why do I keep saying that?!? Club!). Let’s build this thing together! The bigger it gets, the more goals I’ll hit and the more time I can devote to keeping my patrons happy and pampered and scared out of their wits.

Still reading? Maybe browse the various pledge tiers I’m offering and pick one that shrieks loudest to you. Patreon takes my patrons’ payments on the first day of each month, and you can opt out at any time (or edit your pledge level), safe in the knowledge that I love you for having backed me for however long you were able.

Just so you know, by the way, when you join this VIP club, you are charged up front for your first month of patronage. 

IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE: Patreon is not the only way to support me! Buying my books is 100% support. There are also countless ways to back me that don't involve cash-money. When you recommend or review one of my books, or subscribe to my YouTube channel/newsletters, or even follow me on Twitter or Instagram, that's all wonderful support. You are no less of a fan for not supporting me on Patreon!

Any further questions or feedback? Benefits you'd like to see, but which just aren't there? Any concerns or worries or annoyances that are preventing you from joining? Drop me a line via my site. Thanks for reading and I look forward to welcoming you to this cult.

Club.

Club, club, club.


Goals
32 of 50 patrons
Woo, 50 is a very satisfyingly round number, yes? To celebrate hitting this goal, I'll transform my first ever published short story, Home, into a PDF and send it directly to all patrons. This gory tale was published in the loooong-out-of-print collection Deadly Strangers, back in 1994!
