If I've made you smile, laugh or think about a world you didn't know much about before...or gave you something beautiful/cool/fun to look at...and you wanted to say thank you, this is one way! Think of it as buying my next cocktail as I write my tales. Or food for my cat.
I work my ass off for my arts. Mostly for free (thus far;) and also out-of-pocket (motel rooms, film, time, etc). It's my passion and so I do it gladly, but if you wanted to pay it forward, I'd be honored and grateful.
