Patreon is the web site is were users can support others in their artistic endeavors. Patreon users are called “Patrons” and can donate amounts usually from $1+ to Patreon user accounts. Payments are made only once or repeated monthly. Mark encapsulates way Patreon was created in the first place. Mark has created a Patreon page for his art, drawings, and videos. He needs your support in order to continue making great art, buying a new computer, new editing software, and new tripod.

Mark is trying to better his artwork and with your support you can help him become a flourishing artist.

Supporting Science Fiction Stories And Novels By JD Maverick

  • Comments Off on Supporting Science Fiction Stories And Novels By JD Maverick

JD Maverick is creating science fiction stories and novels and needs your support on Patreon and Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign is specifically for a web novel named ‘Cross Roads.” Cross Roads is set to be a slice of life/science fiction web novel with the unique theme of “magical girls.” Visit https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2045434624/cross-roads-web-novel for more details. The more broadly focused second campaign can be found on Patreon where the first $500 will go towards the internet story and novel Maverick. Please consider donating to JD’s Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/JDMav

Campaign Images

Cross Roads Novel  Publish The Novel With Patreon

Right now both campaigns have zero backers. JD Maverick needs your help! Please consider supporter the author and make the next novel come into existence.

Kickstarter Campaign Breakdown

“This campaign will help me cover the costs of publishing the novel independently, like the cover and formatting, as well as the cost of setting up an author website. If I exceed my goal of $2,000, I will use the extra money to pay for advertising and possibly some other marketing activities.”

Kickstarter Campaign Risks?

“Unless a meteor falls from the sky and obliterates me before I can hit “send,” there is not much risk involved with this project. The book is already written, and is already formatted for both the e-book and print book versions. The only issue I can foresee would be that if my day job gets too busy, it might delay me in sending rewards out to everyone as quickly as planned.”

Any Kickstarter Rewards?

Yes, there are rewards! $1+ gets your full name added to the book, $5+ gets you ebook and full name, $20+ gets you previous reward and paperback copy of book, $30+ gets your name and hardcover copy, and finally $50+ gets you paperbook, hardcover, and name. As you can see reward levels are very reasonable. $1+ gets you name, that’s one of best offers I’ve seen.

Patreon Campaign Information

Patreon if you don’t know already is a place mostly for artists and creators that want to earn steady monthly incomes from their work. Patreon is a great place for JD Maverick to crowd fund the novel.

“For the past 15 years, I’ve created the world that was built on a dream, which hopefully will become a reality. I work a full-time day job that quite frankly takes a lot of my time. I have bills to pay and I work at least three jobs.” Patreon will JD transfer from the working world to publishing full time. This campaign is for my internet story and my novel I want to publish. First $500 are reserved for the internet stories. Instead of releasing a chapter every two weeks on a Thursday, I will be releasing a chapter every week when I reach my second goal. Which you can read all the previous and future chapters at Wattpad.com. Patrons pledged to at least the 5$ Tier will get full access to my internet stories in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF Files every month.”

Why Patreon? 

“I work a full-time day job that quite frankly takes a lot of my time. I have bills to pay and I work at least three jobs. Also do podcasting but not really making anything out of that right now. I also do consulting work– whether graphic design– but that is in flux as well. Even on my days off I still work my projects so I don’t know anything about slacking off or even goofing off. To be honest I was never even raised that way. I was always raised by one simple rule. A role that my parents and teach me but the world has taught me: if you don’t work, you don’t eat. Plain and simple.”

Any Patreon Rewards? 

Yes, like Kickstater there are Patreon rewards to be had. $1 gets you a thank you, $5 gets you story access, $10 gets you the novel “Second Renaissance: Bitter Harvest” and access to stories in hi-res PDF files, and finally $20 gets you “Patreon Versions of earlier and future web novels of Second Renaissance, Generation Me and Cross Roads in physical paperback form. Patreon Version of my new novel “Second Renaissance: Bitter Harvest” in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF File. You will get full access to my internet stories in the form of a fully colored Hi-res PDF File in every release.”

Sidewalk Illusions by Artist Julian Beever

Sidewalk Illusions by Artist Julian Beever

These are amazing pictures! Julian Beever is a English chalk artist. Julian has been chalk drawings on pavement since the mid-90s. The technical term is trompe-l’oeil drawings. To get the illusion he uses a technique called anamorphosis. If one uses this technique you can get the illusion of the third dimension if viewed at the correct angle. He also paints murals for companies, replicas of classic paintings, and collages. The amazing part of these painting I think is the fact that they only take one day to create. Many times these chalk paintings are gone the next day. Beever is currently based in Belgium. Just yesterday I was talking about viral marketing. A company hiring Julian Beever to do a chalk painting in the middle of the city what could be more viral than that?
