Shane! Come back!
I’m at WonderCon in Los Angeles this weekend. I’ll be selling and signing my books, and will even have Trading Cards (including sexy 18+ Trading Cards) with The Young Protectors characters for sale. If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by! 🙂
Earlier, I let March’s Patreon backers know that they were getting something a little different at the end of the month — a sexy, nude romantic pin-up of Commander, the Young Protectors’ team leader. But that’s not all they’re getting!
Last week I sent them a pin-up showing Spooky’s very first kiss! Here’s a sneak preview of that:
Hmm. I wonder what the story here is…
Patrons get to download the full wallpaper of that image—and because Patreon is changing the way pledges are charged, new Patrons (and upgraders) will get to download that full wallpaper immediately!
How are things changing with Patreon? Well, in the past, if you signed up as a new Patron (or upgraded your pledge), you got to access to all the Updates/rewards of that pledge level, but your card wouldn’t be charged until the end of the month. That lead to some folks gaming the system (pledging high amounts with fake credit cards to try to get the rewards/Milestone Goals without paying), which meant that creators like me had to withhold the good stuff, and then only send those digital files out by personal message to pledgers that Patreon confirmed had successful payments. It was a slow and somewhat laborious process.
Well, no more! Now, when new folks pledge to my Patreon (or current Patrons upgrade their pledge to get access to a particular reward), their cards will be charged immediately—and so that means I don’t have to wait to post the good stuff. (After that immediate payment, Patrons then get charged on the 1st of every month. Current Patrons won’t see any change with their payment at all—they’ll be charged on the 1st of the month like always, they’ll just get to see more of the good stuff right away now.)
I’ll probably still have some rewards I’ll Private Message to Patrons each month, such as the high-res files, because I want to reward folks who pledge every month with something special. But for most of my rewards, I’ll be able to post them right away. And that’s a very good thing. 🙂
Speaking of rewards I’ll be PMing out, $5+ Patrons for March will get to see the full nude version of Commander’s pin-up once their pledges clear after the first week of April. $10+ Patrons will get sent a high-res version of that image plus this special Spooky Kiss, both with over double the resolution!
There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron (you can see them all here along with an explanation of what the heck Patreon is), and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits),
So! The Annihilator tells Kyle to talk to the hand… or the back… or something. Anyway, he’s not talking anymore. And the clock’s still ticking. What will our heroes do now? Is there anything they can do?
Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 🙂
