Yes, I know - this kind of follow-up email can be irritating. But with less than one day left to go, I want to make sure that you don't miss out on my limited Patreon special offer. I know, from my own experience, particularly over the madness of the Black Friday weekend, that I've seen offers I really wanted to grab... and then totally forgot to do so. Apologies if you already did - and huge thanks! You will soon receive your personalised welcome video from me.

Thanks also to subscriber Chris, who replied to the last newsletter with bizarre abuse, telling me, "go f**k yourself... you're a great artist, but wow... get a job like the rest of us." This hilariously confused missive gave me the perfect opportunity to promote my special offer on social media, in a way that drew more engagement than a standard announcement. Couldn't have done it without ya, Chris! Oh, and you'll probably want to unsubscribe at some point, mate.

So. You saw in my last email that I've designed the front cover of a custom Christmas card (see the actual card cover at Patreon). I'm going to get my design printed up on full-colour cards, and send one to every Patreon backer, anywhere in the world, who is pledging at the Terrifying level or above by 12pm GMT on Wednesday December 1. As I type, that's tomorrow. Each card will be dedicated and signed by me... or maybe Jack Sparks... or Kate Collins from Ghoster... it's all up to you.

See below for a reminder of the three Patreon pledge tiers below, ALL of which will make you eligible to receive a physical Christmas card. After your first payment is complete, you are then of course free to edit your pledge down to the minimum Chilling tier of $1/£1 (or edit it up, if you're of a suitably unsound mind) or cancel it altogether. Whatever you choose to do, and for however long, you'll remain a legend in my eyes for supporting me and my family. Thank you so much, for even reading this far.

You can also choose to examine the tiers directly at Patreon itself, right here. 

Here, once again, are the three eligible Patreon pledge tiers...

The TERRIFYING pledge tier (about £4 or $5 per month + VAT)
  • You will receive this special, physical, never-to-be-repeated Christmas card in the mail before December 25 (barring unavoidable international delays, ulp!), dedicated to you and signed by me.
  • Just like everyone else on the Terrifying tier, if you remain a patron for the following 12 months, you will receive a thank you postcard from me (which continues on an annual basis, for as long as you're a patron.)
  • As soon as possible after you sign up, I'll send you a personalised greeting video, via Patreon's private messaging system.
  • You will be thanked by name onscreen at the end of my YouTube videos and newsletters, for as long as you remain a patron.
  • Plus more perks! You can see the full list under the Terrifying heading here
  • You will receive this special, physical, never-to-be-repeated Christmas card before December 25, dedicated to you and signed by me OR one of my fictional characters, including Jack Sparks, on request! (Just let me know if you'd like it to be from a fictional character, by sending me a private message at Patreon.)
  • Just like everyone else on the Oh Dear God... tier, if you remain a patron for the following 12 months, you will receive a thank you postcard from me (which continues on an annual basis, for as long as you remain a patron.)
    OR from one of my fictional characters. 
  • Your name will appear higher up the thanks list at the end of my YouTube videos, and remain there for as long as you're a patron. 
  • If you include your Twitter handle on your new Patreon profile, I will give you a grateful shout-out on the Twitters!
  • Plus more perks! See the full list under the Oh Dear God... heading here
  • You will receive this special, physical, never-to-be-repeated Christmas card before December 25, dedicated to you and signed by me OR one of my fictional characters, including Jack Sparks! (Just let me know if you'd like it to be from a fictional character, by sending me a private message at Patreon.) PLUS Your Christmas card envelope will also contain a signed The Last Days Of Jack Sparks bookmark! I now have very few of these left. Full disclosure: depending on the final size of the card, I may have to fold this in half. Sorry!
  • Just like everyone else on the Cardiac Arrest tier, if you remain a patron for the following 12 months, you will receive a thank you postcard from me (which continues on an annual basis, for as long as you remain a patron) OR from one of my fictional characters, on request. 
  • Your name will appear higher up the thanks list at the end of my YouTube videos
  • You get the thank you postcard from me (or a fictional character, see above) every SIX months, instead of 12 as on the previous tiers
  • I will thank you in the acknowledgements section of any novel or self-published book of mine that is published while you've been a patron at this level for three months or more!
  • Pledge at this level here and surprise the hell out of me. :-)
Right, that's it - the final nudge for this special offer!

I will not nudge again. Promise. :)

Remember, you have until 12pm GMT on Wednesday December 1 to claim your Christmas card, plus all the other giddy perks that come with Patreon membership. One of the main things I love about Patreon, by the way, is the community aspect. I can chat with patrons directly, without having to bypass social media algorithms or dodge spam folders. I regularly run Ask Me Anything Q&As, and polls, and let patrons in on aspects of my life that I would be unlikely to discuss in public. This summer, I recorded a 50-minute video chat about writing with Doctor Who writer James Moran, which we recorded exclusively for our Patreon backers! You'll find yet more reasons to become a patron - 10 of them in fact - at the bottom of this email, after I sign off.

JOIN USSSSSS, right here at Patreon. 

I hope to make your personalised greeting video soon, and then write and sign your Christmas card! 

Any last-minute questions? Absolutely feel free to reply to this email and ask away.

Pre-yuletide wishes,

Jason

P.S. As I mentioned before, when I reach the monthly pledge total of £1000 on Patreon, I will privately share a deleted chapter from my novel The Last Days Of Jack Sparks with patrons. So your pledge - even if you back me at the Chilling level for $1 or £1 - will shove me closer to unlocking those hidden words! (I mean, obviously, this chapter was deleted for a reason, but it should hopefully still be interesting to read, and I'll explain exactly why it was deleted...)

P.P.S. Oh! And as I mentioned above, all my patrons on the above tiers get thanked in my newsletters. Soooo, a big thank you to (deep breath):
