Noah & Kate
Noah & Kate is an experimental project I began a bit differently than any of my other novels. I usually spend a year or more writing a novel, and then another six months letting it get cold before I edit it - this time, I wanted to challenge myself to writing, editing and releasing (including recording) one chapter a month until the book was finished.
To keep me on track, I set up a Patreon account for the project, and asked for donations of $1 a month. I donate whatever I make from it to charity, but just having that sense of obligation to paying members really helps me stay committed to the project*.
For their $1 a month, patrons receive:
early access to each audio book chapter
exclusive access to the text version of each chapter
blog posts about updates, the process of writing, and anything else I think relates to the book, the characters, etc
a chance to name characters and determine certain events
occasional Clubhouse rooms to discuss writing
an acknowledgement of their contribution in the finished book
a free copy of the published book
*Since starting this project, I've heard that Amazon has come out with something similar called Vella - I'm just chuffed I thought of it first!
