KoFi is live. · 3:31am January 22nd

Thanks to all of you who are enjoying The Maretian! I have a small buffer built up, and I'm going to try to write something every day to keep up the daily posts. But it's time to get back on the convention circuit...

Although (at least for the time being) I hope you'll make monthly pledges via Patreon that I can budget around, I now have a KoFi for one-time tips.
