Hey guys! Did you know that there are some AMAZING behind-the-scenes rewards you can get for supporting Tamberlane on Patreon? It's a great deal at any value, if I do say so myself!
What is Patreon? Patreon, like Kickstarter, is a way to fund your favorite creator! Unlike Kickstarter, though, it's not limited to a single project but instead a (in my case) monthly commitment to support them with donations. In return, depending on the amount you donate, you get rewards!
And, if that wasn't cool enough, no matter what tier you donate at, you get all the perks of the tiers below yours as well!
For example, let me show you what you can get donating to the Tamberlane Patreon:
For only $1 a month, you get access to comic updates over a week early! All $1 patrons are already three (3!) pages ahead of the public. When the comic goes on planning breaks, $1 patrons get to come back sooner! Plus, you get thanked publicly on my Twitter and your name is put on the Tamberlane website and any book you helped fund!
For only $5 a month, you get 5% off of all of my merch, including rad Tamberlane goods, from MyDreamyStar.com! You also get to see time-lapse videos before the public (when they're done in time to be released before the public), and you get to vote in polls!
For only $10 a month, you get 10% off of all of my merch from MyDreamyStar.com! You also get to see EVERY SINGLE COMIC PAGE the same day it's made. There's no buffer for you! Just pure, unadulterated TAMBERLANE, injected straight into your brain-veins. The $10 patrons are currently 10 pages ahead of the public. It's like they're a secret club or something!!
In addition, $10 patrons get access to the behind-the-scenes WIP twitter! I post drawings, scripts, musings about the worldbuilding and characters, and all sorts of other things here that may not filter out to the public!
For only $25 a month, the price of a single dinner at Red Robin's for 2, you get to have your character (or you!) immortalized in the comic FOREVER! You get to become a resident of Treehollow and hang out in the town in the comic! Whenever I need a background cameo, I'll pull from the $25 list. The longer you support the Patreon, the more likely you are to come up again and again!
Not only that, but every month you get a beautiful postcard in the mail with a truly awful specimen of a joke. I am told it's the highlight of my patrons' months!
For only $50 a month, your cameo gets to SPEAK in the comic! They may be around for a few panels or even a few pages depending on what situation I put them in! And just like with the $25 tier, the longer you pledge, the more likely your character is to show up again!
PLUS, you get a single-character sketch commission every single month!
And finally, for $100 a month, your cameo now gets to play a CRUCIAL ROLE in the comic! Everyone will know their name! People will have feelings about them! They will help to move the story along! Terra, for example, is a $100 Patreon cameo!
In addition, your 1-character sketch commission is actually a 2-character sketch commission every single month!
And finally, grab the popcorn: you get to come to the monthly MOVIE NIGHT where we watch fun animated movies together through Rabb.it and chat it up and hang out!
If that's not enough to sway you, I'm LESS THAN $50 AWAY from reaching my Ask Blog goal, where once a month I'll sketch some answers to questions my Patrons ask the characters of Treehollow and upload them to this Tumblr! I'm really excited about that goal, and we're SO CLOSE!
If you can't donate through Patreon, or you just don't want to, that is totally fine! You know what the next best method of support is? Sharing! Share this post with your friends, reblog, talk up the comic, get more people to read it! Leave a nice comment! Draw some fanart(!!)!Hug an imaginary fluffbat! It all helps!

I think that's all the marketing I've got in me for today; thank you sincerely for reading this comic! I hope you all are enjoying it so far -- and I appreciate your support!
