July Newsletter

Hi, everyone! It’s that time again! Monthly news and accountability! This time with an actual monthly update!

Life And Other Such Important Matters

Well. Life has… been a thing that has happened. I’m sure you’ve all noticed me struggling to keep even regular updates going on Patreon. You’d think collecting links and setting goals wouldn’t be a very strenuous activity and easy to keep up, but apparently not.

Short version: Life has sucked this past month. I see no reason to imagine that July will be any nicer, but we can but hope. I do have some exciting and some not-so exciting announcements to make.

Let’s get the not-so-exciting one out of the way first: As of this month, Patreon has decided to charge sales tax. This is basically the US version of VAT, so some of you may now be seeing what non-USians were already dealing with when paying through Patreon. (It’s also a large reason why I won’t give up that $1 like it wants me to. That sales tax can make or break a low tier Patron.) I think there shouldn’t be any sales tax applicable to any of my tiers, but to be honest I already struggle with EU taxes before trying to understand the US system. That’s part of what Patreon is for. But do please let me know if anything needs looking at there from your end!

More excitingly! I have finished a Let’s Play at long last, so expect that to start up soon. I’ve also discovered some audio recordings of short stories in my drafts folder. I should redo some of them because branding and naming, but. For now they will do. I’d love to redo them once everything is sorted. Expect about 2 of those a month from now until about October.

Most excitingly, you’ll see I have continued DemiPrincess2 at last. Well, sort of. This month’s post is still a little bare bones. I’m calling amnesty on link collecting for one more month as it really is annoyingly draining at the end of the month. 🙁
