To my thousands of fans, friends, and family,
Thank you so much for the constant love, support and encouragement you've given me through whatever social media's you've found me on. I've been privileged to be followed by some amazing people and its' only fueled me to create even better poetry. You give me an outlet to create what I love and in that, I couldn't be any more grateful.
Now begins the move to the next level. Countless people have asked me why I don't monetize my writing and poetry. At first, I looked at this as selfish. While having a conversation with a young follower asking advice from me (I get that alot for some reason), I told her my opinion on monetization. She was a little taken aback and told me, "People are paid to do their dreams and what they love all the time. Why can't you?" So she had me taken aback in that moment. And then I truly thought to myself, "She's right. Why not me?"
<deep breath> so I've decided to jump onto Patreon. There I will be posting most of what I have here. And there will be Patreon-only postings which will go exclusive. I hope you will support me in this. some of my short and long-term goals for doing this will be:

-the publication of my first book in both print and digital, comprising of 500 works not featured anywhere else. This will be aimed for a Summer 2018 release with a self-funded East Coast Book Tour as I have followers in every state. We'll go bigger to country-wide depending on the response. And if my expectations are totally blown away? Well, I'll be coming to your part of the world soon.

- The creation of a monthly webzine featuring new and upcoming writers and creators

- The creation of a non-profit to offer advice, direction and self-publishing help to struggling and upcoming writers.


I hope you will join me on these endeavors.
Love and light.
Namaste',
Stephen
