I wasn't even sure if I should make this page, but finally decided I probably should. I don't like asking for help, and in a way, this page feels like that. But what really decided me is that sometimes I come across a content creator I really like who isn't very popular or successful, and honestly, I just want some way of helping them out beyond the obvious stuff. On the off chance that you are not only reading this, but you're also a person who wants to help me out, then this is for you! I don't really turn away help and I've learned that it really just makes sense to ask for it if you need it.
So if you've already bought the books, which is probably the most direct way you can help me out, then below is a list of ways you can lend some extra assistance.
#1: Leave a review on Amazon. Honestly, this is super helpful. Everyone likes to pretend that they don't make snap judgments, and I honestly think people just don't realize how influenced they are by little things, but I believe that the average person judges books based on how many reviews they have. If you read one of my stories all the way through, it'd be awesome if you could leave a review over on Amazon telling me what you thought. This also does help me in another way because I'm open to constructive criticism. I'd like to know what I'm doing wrong.
#2: Sign up for my PATREON. I have a Patreon, but I'm not particularly skilled at it. My thoughts on it are that while, yes, I do have a lot of content up for sale, I also have a lot of content up for free. I don't really like pay-walling content, and honestly, I simply do not have the time to regularly come up with exclusive content just for Patreon. That's why I only have the 1$ option. So basically, if you really like me, you can just sign up for a monthly donation, and that will go towards helping me make more stuff.
#3: Donate to me directly. Straight-up money is certainly helpful. This is also what I tell people when my birthday or Xmas rolls around and they for some reason feel the need to get me things. On the one hand, I feel weird about taking direct donations, on the other hand, if you want to give me money for no other reason than you want to, then I won't turn you down. You can donate directly through paypal HERE. Or just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org via Paypal.
#4: Tell your friends. Sharing links, reviewing my stuff on your blog or Facebook or whatever you have, loaning out my books, either digitally or physically, all of these things help out. Word-of-mouth is still pretty powerful.
#5: Comment and Vote on WattPad, Review on Fanfiction.net. Commenting and Voting on my original fiction over on WattPad helps get it more visibility. Everything else, Comments and Votes on my WattPad fan fics, or Reviews over on ff.net, really, those just help me personally. Statistics will tell me how many people clicked on the story, but an actual review, even a short one, will tell me you cared enough to say something about it, and that's a real morale booster. And I'll be honest, I'm not the happiest person. Morale boosters are useful and valuable for me.
That's all I've got for now. However you help out, even if it's reading the material itself, I thank you! I really appreciate any and all support and assistance I get.
