I don't mind being broke because my writing keeps me happy but when I get emails like this one and I see that I have $6 on my checking account and can't afford the $20 shipping cost to Netherlands, I WISH I WAS FILTHY RICH.
Dear Ksenia, I want to make a deal with you. (No, I'm not the devil or something like that;)) If you send me a paperback copy of Rosehead, I'll make the most beautiful fanart painting of Rosehead you've ever seen and send it to you! I don't have money to buy it myself and neither have my parents, but I want to read it so bad! Let me know what you think. A 15 year old girl from the Netherlands (who has been stalking you for the past few weeks.)
To those of you who support me on Patreon, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. When October hits and I'll get your hard-earned dollars in my account, I will send this girl a copy of my book.
