I took the plunge recently and signed up to Ko-fi. It’s something of a simpler version of Patreon, which was the other option I looked at. Out of the two I went for Ko-fi since it offers the possibility for supporters to just do a one-off show of support by buying me a cup of coffee.
Patreon does have the advantage of the tiers where you can explain exactly what you offer for each one. Like, I would love to offer copies of my books once they are published to supporters, but Ko-fi doesn’t really have an easy way to do that. However, Patreon has other parts I don’t like, so for now, at least – I’m on Ko-fi.
I’m offering weekly chapters of my current WIP to supporters; a historical romance that is the third in my Howerty series. There will also be sneak peeks for other stories, and maybe some deleted scenes and similar. If anyone has any suggestions for what they’d like to see, I’m all ears!
