Over the past year or so, I’ve been working hard to grow my Patreon Community and it’s become a fantastic group of over 400 avid readers. I love interacting with them in my Patrons-Only Facebook Group and many patrons have become excellent book recommendation sources for each other and for me. The benefits patrons get have also grown considerably over the past year from 1 bonus podcast episode per month to 2 bonus episodes per month + a quarterly bonus episode + many other non-podcast episode goodies.
I’m launching a new tier of benefits called (the “Superstars”) for $7 / month (join here), which will feature an upgraded version of one of my current bonus podcast episodes (you can listen to the first episode on the big show’s podcast feed on Wednesday to get an idea of what it will look like) and two other treats:
Superstars Tier ($7 / month)
- Double Booked Bonus Podcast Episode (monthly)
A monthly podcast series where Catherine from Gilmore Guide or Susie from Novel Visits (they’ll alternate months) and I will each share our own book recommendations in the format of the big show in a 60 minute-ish episode (each of us will share 2 old books we love, 2 new books we love, 1 book we didn’t like, and 1 upcoming release we’re excited about). I’m really excited for more back and forth book discussion and for more Catherine and Susie! Over the past year or so, I’ve also loved having this private forum to share my thoughts on books…I love being able to be more candid with my bookish opinions and get a bit more personal than I’m comfortable getting publicly.
- Summer Reading Guide Extras
A supplement to my Summer Reading Guide featuring summer reading recommendations from my patrons and hopefully from previous podcast guests. This guide will feature both new releases and backlist books.
- My 2022 Rock Your Reading Tracker for free (normally $14.99)
My 2022 Tracker will include a significant upgrade that will help you analyze what types of books are successful for you and help you pinpoint your reading taste.
