Connect or Support

This page summarizes the current ways a reader can support, follow, or connect with me:

As an independent creator in the digital age, I realize there are many ways to connect with readers and to solicit their support directly, so I’m compiling all of mine in one place here. Support from readers comes in many forms, both non-monetary (boosting posts, amplifying message, cheerleading, etc) and monetary! The mechanisms for support are constantly changing and evolving as new tools, websites, and norms come along. Direct support is a key piece of the modern ecosystem for authors people like me, even when I am also publishing work with large publishers. I am grateful for and honored by the support I’ve received.

    Direct Monetary ways include:

  • Patreon
  • Ko-fi
  • Venmo
  • Paypal
  • Kickstarter (when a campaign is active)
  • Buying my self-published books directly
    Indirect monetary ways include:

  • Buying my books via bookstores including
  • Requesting that your local library acquire copies of my books
    Non-monetary ways include:
