So in an update to this post, I am deliriously happy to report that Patreon has acknowledged that they done screwed up and that they are not actually rolling out the updates to their fee structure that they had announced. So I am thrilled they are being not evil in this particular way. However, they have burned a lot of trust and I will be continuing to watch and research other alternatives in case something like this goes down again.
You can read their apology post here.
So currently on Patreon is the story of why my mother has a Russian Motherhood Medal and then the December short story will be posted soon.
Any Patreon alternatives you want to drop in the comments, I’d be appreciative.
