Update: New Ko-fi, No More Chapter Titles, Royal Road, June Schedule Change

I haven’t made one of these update things on the site in a while, so I figured I should.

First of all, I have now made a Ko-fi! If you would like to support me that way, you’re now able to!

I decided that I don’t want to worry about chapter titles at this point. Sometimes they can be quite a pain to come up with, and I feel as though it’s not worth it. I like the way the chapters look without titles as well. It seems more “organized” if that makes sense.

Also, chapters have been continuing daily on Royal Road. Today will be the last chapter of Volume 1, and we will then move on to Volume 2. As I said before, this will continue until Royal Road is caught up to the site. I’ve been attempting to gain more viewership here, so check it out if you would like. I honestly think Royal Road makes it much easier to help you keep track of your reading progress.

And finally, a reminder of the schedule starting in June. Chapters will be once a week as opposed to two. They will be released every Tuesday, with slightly longer chapters to compensate. I feel like this will be easier for me to keep things in order. And when it comes to Patreon, you will be able to gain access to the chapter an entire week early as opposed to a few days with the current schedule.

I think that’s it for now? If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. Either here, Twitter, wherever.

Updates to Patreon Tiers

Recently, I got rid of a few of the tier I had on Patreon, leaving only two remaining: The Red Apple and Golden Apple tiers. I mixed certain benefits in that were in higher tiers into these, and also made a few new ones.

This post is to inform everyone that I am now changing the prices of the tiers, including the main one, the Red Apple tier. I had it set to $1, yet I learned today that it would be better to boost this up to $2. The reason? Processing fees. It’s cheaper to have a $2 tier as opposed to a $1 tier. The second tier, the Golden Apple tier, is now at $4 for all the benefits included in that one.

I’m also going to get rid of Patreon goals for the time being. I think once I begin to gain traction on Patreon, I’ll create goals that I think are appropriate.

Check out my Patreon to see the benefits you can get!

Fact #6:

If Faith did not have to join Unity, she would have probably pursued her musical talents. She would have most likely joined a band that one of her friends (who has not yet been introduced) is the founder of.

Phantonics Fact of the Day #4

Fact #4:

In an original short story I wrote for some essay in fifth grade, Charlie was the little brother of Paul (I think) and was an evil genius. Brandon and Paul had to stop him from using his “Meat Masher” machine, which used raw meat for power (please, PLEASE don’t ask).
