I'm a science-fiction and fantasy buff, creator of the Chakat Universe, and now dabbling in the MLP:FiM universe. I love a good story!

    Would you like to be a pony?

    Just curious, but if reincarnation was genuinely a thing, would you like to be reincarnated as a pony? If so, which type? And would you want to retain the memories of your previous human life?

    SunnyWay Art

    I've just added a commissioned picture to A Steady Heart - part 3. SunnyWay did a gorgeous pic of Steady and Mark flying together on their date. Here it is for your convenience.

    More new art

    I just got a Patreon sketch from RatedPonystar for the "It Takes Six" story – a nice family portrait of Gilda, Big Mac, and their son, Goldspur.

    Gilda-Big Mac art for "It Takes Six"

    The wonderful KlaraPL has just completed a pic I commissioned of Big Mac and Gilda for the story. I have added it to the chapter, but because people are unlikely to notice unless they re-read the story, I'm putting it in this blog too.

I love to write, but unlike most authors, I also like to get many illustrations for my stories. Of course, this costs me a lot of money. Help support me and keep up the frequent art additions by buying me a ko-fi!

Is Ko-fi kind of like Patreon?

Ko-fi is geared more towards one-off payments rather than a set monthly amount. Think of it as a tip jar.

4925282
Ok, how much so you need right now and how much should I send to you?

4925283
Send as much as you like, or as little as $3. It's all up to you.

But to put things in perspective, a single character picture from Foxenawolf costs me a minimum of US$60 each.

4925285
Huh, so that would be 20 people giving 3$ each. I will see if I can send you some money.

Do ya have a patron?

I assume you're talking about having a Patreon account. No, I don't. I have considered that before, but it puts the onus on the creator to produce reliably, and I don't know if I can do that. I've had a good run, but I might dry up. It's happened before. That's why I switched from my chakat stories to pony years back. I also didn't know what I was going to do after Cosmic Lotus until the "Off The Mark" idea came to me. Ko-fi is different though, acting more like a tip which I can handle.

Thanks! Buying my books is always a good way to help. :twilightsmile:

I think I saw some patreon projects that charged by chapter / story / picture instead of monthly. Maybe that would be an alternative as it puts less pressure on you to publish something regularly.

One Foxalatte coming up.
