Become a Crochet Concupiscence Patreon! Support Indie Writing!

crochet concupiscence patreon

I wanted to let all of you know that I have joined Patreon, which is a place where artists and makers can share their visions and get supported by the people who believe in what they do. It is not the same as Kickstarter or Indiegogo; you’re not funding a particular project but instead committing a monthly amount to help support the general work of a creator that you love. I’ve signed up for it because the support from a community can really help me to take my work a lot further than it can go on its own. I work really hard to use my writing to support others (highlighting designers and crafters, interviewing creative people, sending messages of support to those in need) and if the greater community supports my efforts then I can pay it forward stronger in kind.
