BIG NEWS! I'm now a Ko-Fi Ambassador!

Hi folks,
I hope you're all well.
I have BIG news!

I'm not quite sure how it's happened, but I'm now an "ambassador" for Ko-Fi. This means that I'm going to be pushing lots of things on my Ko-Fi page (such as the shop, funding goals, memberships, and commissions).

"Creep" cover reveal!

Hiya folks,

I can't believe I haven't done a proper reveal of this already... but, since I finished the first draft of "Creep" earlier this week, it seems fitting that I reveal the cover now.

The artwork was created by the AMAZING Neil Fraser.

Neil has also been working hard on the cover for "E…

My new Ko-fi goal!

Hi folks! 

As it's a new year, I've set a new goal for Ko-Fi. 

I'm hoping to raise £100 to commission one of my favourite artists to produce another cover for me (his name may be Neil ;) ). 

I've got no idea how much it will be, but £100 will certainly help me out :) I'm super excited a…

BIG NEWS! I'm now a Ko-Fi Ambassador!

Hi folks,
I hope you're all well.
I have BIG news!

I'm not quite sure how it's happened, but I'm now an "ambassador" for Ko-Fi. This means that I'm going to be pushing lots of things on my Ko-Fi page (such as the shop, funding goals, memberships, and commissions).
 
 
Memberships?
Yep, memberships. Ko-Fi now offers similar memberships to those on Patreon, but there are a few differences (I'll list them below in a mo - hey, that rhymes!). Ideally, I'd love it if we could all move over to the new memberships right now, but I know that you may not want to... so, fear not! For as long as I have at least one member on Patreon, I'll keep it open, I'll keep posting updates, and you'll keep getting your delicious rewards!
So, the differences:
  • Ko-Fi doesn't take a commission, so I'll get a bigger slice of whatever pie you offer me. You can see why I may think this is awesome.
  • The new memberships can currently only be paid for via Stripe. I believe PayPal payments for memberships are due any moment now, I'll keep checking on that and let you know when it happens. PayPal payments for memberships are now live! You have the choice of PayPal or Stripe at the checkout.
  • I'll have more freedom with the merch rewards. The current model means that Patreon send out your merch directly (if you're on one of those tiers!), but on the new system it'll be me. This means I can give you more bang for your buck. For example, those on the Dragon tier on Ko-Fi will get a choice of an art print/postcard, badge, or sticker each quarter. Werewolves will be able to pick from everything the Dragons get, but also with T-shirt and mug options. Bloodsuckers and Mutant Slugs have even more options! You can even pick the design in some cases, rather than just having one sent to you. Also, the rewards will be ongoing, whereas on here, they only last for a year. I'm working on putting a post together with all the merch options, but that may take me a few days.
If you do decide to make the switch, your membership start date will be the date you joined Patreon, rather than the date you joined Ko-Fi... I have a spreadsheet prepared to keep track! Therefore, if you're due some goodies next month, you'll get them still.
But, as I said before, this page isn't going anywhere. As long as you're here, I'm here too!
What does an ambassador do?
I'll be testing out new features before they enter the big wide world, as well as talking about all the Ko-Fi related things I've got going on.
I'm also able to gift a couple of Ko-Fi Gold memberships to creative people, so if you've got a page set up already (or you're thinking of getting one), please let me know and I should be able to sort you out with a year's worth of Gold membership.
Check out my page here: https://ko-fi.com/louyardley (you can check out the memberships here)
Blood, guts, and hugs,
Lou

"Everfrost" pre-order!

 

Hi folks,

I'm absolutely delighted because it's time to open the pre-order for "Everfrost"!

Unlike previous pre-orders, this will only be available in my Ko-Fi store. After the release date (31st July 2021), the paperback will be available through other retailers and the eBook will be exclusive to Kindle/Kindle Unlimited.

You're really helping me out by pre-ordering as it means that I have access to the funds faster (well, instantly!) and I can use those funds to order stock, pay for advertising, etc.

Here are the links:

"Everfrost" paperback (signed) (£9.99 + p&p)

"Everfrost" eBook (mobi/ePub) (£1.99)
As a thank you, the eBook will be priced at £1.99 for the duration of the pre-order. Once it goes live on Amazon, it will be £2.99.

Blood, guts, and hugs,
Lou

"Creep" cover reveal!

Hiya folks,

I can't believe I haven't done a proper reveal of this already... but, since I finished the first draft of "Creep" earlier this week, it seems fitting that I reveal the cover now.

The artwork was created by the AMAZING Neil Fraser.

Neil has also been working hard on the cover for "Everfrost" and... OMG I'm in love with it. I can't stop looking at it... it's beautiful! I'll be sharing it with you soon! I'm soooooooooo excited about it!

In other news, Neil is also doing some fundraising for the Max The Brave Fund. Please pop over to his Twitter for more information. Click here to find out about the art sale and click here to find out about the prize draw!

And there's one more bit of news... I'll be moving "Banished" into KU later this month. If you know anyone who wanted a non-Amazon ebook, please let them know that other stores will only be able to hold it until the 18th April 2021.

I think that's all for now. I feel like lots of very exciting things are happening at the moment!

Blood, guts, and hugs,
Lou

Hi folks! 

As it's a new year, I've set a new goal for Ko-Fi. 

I'm hoping to raise £100 to commission one of my favourite artists to produce another cover for me (his name may be Neil ;) ). 

I've got no idea how much it will be, but £100 will certainly help me out :) I'm super excited about "Everfrost" and having some kickass cover art will help others to be excited for it too. 

Anyone who helps out will receive a 'thank you' in the new book AND an eBook copy once its released! How cool is that?

Blood, guts, and hugs, 

Lou
