I know I haven't been updating a lot lately and I am sorry. Aside from some bosArt comics that I provided text for, I haven't written anything new in terms of new chapters to my own personal stories in over a year. I thought that, perhaps a good way to motivate myself would be to start a Patreon page. I've been toying with the idea for a long time, but wondered if it was ever worth the effort, since I'm not artist, and I've never heard of people contributing to writers on Patreon.
But then I realized I could use my patreon money to commission artists to illustrate my stories and THAT could be the exclusive content. I've always wanted my stories illustrated, and though bosArt has done a great job on illustrating a few of my stories, there are a lot of limitations to poser. Stories like polyphylon girls and dervland, which have a lot of supernatural body changing elements require a good traditional artist, and they don't come cheap.
Another reason why I wanted to start a patreon was because I had a lot of content that I wanted to share, but wasn't comfortable sharing publicly on deviantart. As it stands I already feel like I've shared too much on deviantart, and in some ways wish I'd been more reserved. I'm a private person and would feel more comfortable if some of the content I produce were behind a paywall and not out in the open for everyone to see on Deviantart. This doesn't mean I'm taking down my DA page, on the contrary DA is a great site for promoting patreon and networking with artists, but I'll probably be sharing more content on my patreon page as opposed to here going forward.
So here's the link to my patreon. The first bit of exclusive content I put up was the 2010 BosArt illustrated version of The Magic Bodystocking - Chapter 1. Hope you enjoy it! www.patreon.com/MandrakeMoorgl…
