Waffle Books Happy Mobile Storybooks On Patreon

I remember the days scouring my grade school library bookshelf for the latest copies of Berenstain Bears. In fact I was such a huge fan a few years later I told a classmate that I like Berenstain Bears and he was shocked I “still read those books.” That sadly was the last time I read Berenstain Bears. I bring up this story because kids today still read books, but the platform they are read on are much different. In my time the platform was paper and ink now in the 21st century it’s mobile. Thankfully there is a author writing just for this 21st century platform called Waffle Books.

Waffle Books

Waffle Books follows the adventures of Patrick, Kevin, Arty, and a few of their friends. When Matthew Ryan started writing children’s books his mission was to give kids access to a library of books they’d be interested in inside their pocket. A library full of books that are designed specifically for small screens.

How’s Matthew Ryan Doing Today?

Today I’m happy to report the response has been fantastic! Not only does Ryan get to follow his passion writing books, his books get 4+ ratings on Apple iBooks and many have been editorially featured by Apple, Google Play, and the Google Chrome Store.

Are There Any Bonuses?

Yes, like many many Patreon campaigns I’ve featured on Cash Sherpa there are bonuses. Do you worry! For $1 you get FULL ACCESS to the Waffle Book collection! Yes, you heard right only $1. That’s insanity! For only $5 get early access to books. $10 gets you behind the scenes. $15 or more per month gets you hand drawn characters, once a month in fact. You can’t even buy a mixed drink in New York for less than $15. The value of these bonuses are incredible.

Conclusion

I know it’s an old argument, but growing up with the Internet we got used to free or near free pricing. What I think we failed to realize is that when everything is free or nearly free it becomes generic, almost utility like. I think it’s already started, but society needs to support/value the people and products that resonate with us. It’s time we put our money where our mouth is. Let artists and creators earn money pursuing their passions. Support Matthew Ryan’s Patreon campaign today.

Future Girl Comic Book On Patreon

The story of Future Girl is one of the more interesting campaigns I’ve come across on Patreon. The origin of the Future Girl Comic Book all started with a single photograph. The single photo was taken by photographer Stephen Laico at the Women’s March in Washington, DC, on January 21, 2017. For those of you who haven’t seen the photo it is of a girl holding a sign that reads, “The Future Is Watching.” She is a super hero for taking a stand in something she believes in. Ross Dannenberg, written by Jenn Arledge, our principal artist is Miranda Davila, coloring by Tanya Bobrowski, and lettering by Nikki Sherman took this theme and ran with it. The girl holding the sign, someone society could look up to was reimagined into superhero. Future Girl needs your support on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/FutureGirl

You’ve probably heard it before. The world needs more role models and for the most part I think there are plenty of positive role models to choose from. Things change when you ask how many role models are there for children, especially girls? The answer is probably not many. There are even fewer positive role models for girls in the arena of comic books. That’s why supporting this Patreon campaign is so important, especially if you agree with what I just said.

The Plot

After a fateful encounter one distant Halloween night, Future Girl discovers there’s more to being a hero than a flashy costume or billowy cape. Aided by her faithful sidekick – the ever anxious Steadfast – and guided by The Horologist – an ancient and mysterious clock maker – Future Girl stops evil in its tracks no matter where or when it may strike. She is a warrior for truth, a beacon for justice, and defender of the human spirit.

For $1 per post or $0.25 per page depending how you look at it you will get access to the Patron only blog where they publish the Future Girl comic in digital format. You can also have the print version send to Children’s Hospital in your name at $2 level. $3 gets you access to digital copy as well as special addition print version of the comic book. $5+ gets you all previous plus a signed copy of the print version! Lots of bonuses at very reasonable contribution levels.

It won’t break the bank either, $1 per post (1/4 of a Starbucks Latte), you can help support a team of artists and foster a positive message. The Future Starts Now! Lets make sure it’s a better one.
