How to Patreon Properly

I’ve just posted my third short story on a timed exclusive schedule on my Patreon page. For the same price as the Gumroad release, which will be available on Friday, you can get the story and all the concept art that I commissioned for its release. The artwork is by LeoDamage.

How to ruin an okay thing

So today is the day. It had been announced for a while but Twitter finally got around to adding another 140 characters to its character limit, meaning that tweets can now be 280 characters long. Instinctively this just feels wrong. People who use the longer limit feel like they are on a soapbox
