Yule is 12 days away on Sunday the 22nd. Christmas is Wednesday the 25th. What we truly want for the holidays this year is your support in building a better future. We work hard all year, but the life of a self-employed creator is a hard one. It takes the support of family, friends, and fans to keep us going. 2019 has been a difficult year for us, but with your help, 2020 can be the year that everything changes, and prosperity abounds.
So what are we asking of you? We’re asking each and every one of you to show your support in any way you can. We’re quite eclectic, so there’s likely something for almost everyone. Below is a rundown of what you can do to make our 2019 holiday season joyful, and send us into 2020 with hope instead of hardship.
Support Me on Patreon
Pledging monthly support on Patreon is one of the best things you can do for us. Not only does it bring in money each month to keep us alive and well so we can work, it could allow us to save for important things. Every supporter we get will help make the page look more appealing to future patrons. Patreon is great too, because you get something every month for your money. You get exclusive articles every week, sneak peeks of new books, and other benefits depending on how much you pledge.
In case you’re worried, Patreon is safe, secure and reliable. You can pledge any amount you want, and you can change it at any time before the first of the next month. We’d really love to see pledges of $2-5 per month. That’s just one cup of coffee or a few snacks worth of cash to help keep a family alive and well. If you’re feeling generous, larger pledges are always welcome!
(By the way, if I can get 20 patrons before the end of the year, I’ll give all patrons a special gift!)

Make a One-time Donation
If you’re not comfortable with committing to a monthly donation (although you can cancel at any time) you can make a one-time donation. It’s the season of giving, and a donation would be a wonderful gift to us. (PayPal keeps 2.9% + $0.30 of every donation, so please keep that in mind.) Donations of all sizes are welcome. Donations over $20 will get a personal thank you from me, and I may send you some other freebies as a show of my gratitude.
Buy Something from the Shop
My web shop currently has over 300 products in stock, with everything from jewelry to herbs to metaphysical supplies and artwork. Prices range from $2.50 to $400, so there’s something for every budget. Everything is beautifully hand-crafted and unique. You won’t find products like mine anywhere else! Feel free to buy for yourself, or for others. (Please note that we may not be able to get items out in time for Yule/Christmas, so be sure you’re okay with receiving your item(s) after the holidays.)
The shop is now closed. Thank Google for shutting me and tens of thousands of other people down because of the genre we write in.
Buy Something from Zazzle
Our Zazzle shop is huge! We’ve got over 4700 products featuring over 400 designs. No matter what you’re into, we’ve got something you’ll love. Snarky humor t-shirts, goth ornaments, kitty postcards, zodiac pins, fantasy-themed mugs and so much more.
Buy Some Books
I’m sure by now you all know that I’m a pretty prolific writer. I’ve written thousands of articles and around 30 books. If you’re looking for something to read or know someone who loves to read, pick up one, or two, or ten of my books! I’ve got poetry, Paganism, self-help, wisdom, vampires and more.

Being self-employed is a lot of work. It’s a real job and then some. Unfortunately, it takes a lot to make it really work. Every bit of support that you give helps to make my dream a reality, and keeps a family from falling into a very dark place.The truth is, we’re really struggling this year, and we need some hope. Whether you support us by buying products or making a donation, every bit helps. So please, be an angel this season and offer your support. Every bit is appreciated!
