Trouble Club June Rewards Preview

Here’s what’s coming up if you join my Trouble Club on Patreon before the end of June.

This month’s theme is Summer Holiday. That’s because I’ll be busy with my book release and a trip to London for Hyper Japan but you’ll get exclusive behind the scenes posts about both. Printables and wallpapers will have a summer theme and I will bring back some fun souvenirs from London for the Happy Mail. I’ll also be sending a postcard to all $5 patrons this month (this only happens twice a year).

How Patreon works

To get these rewards, you need to join my Trouble Club before the end of the month as Patreon charges everyone on the 1st. You can find out more in my new info page. You will then receive the June rewards throughout July – this is the general plan but can change or be delayed:

  • Week 1 – payment processing, receive discount codes/access links
  • Week 2 – on holiday – limited content
  • Week 3 – wallpaper, printables
  • Week 4 – preview of upcoming theme/rewards, Happy Mail shipping
  • + additional posts/rewards throughout the month.

Can’t afford to join?

You can still follow along for free. You won’t get any of the rewards but I do make some of my posts public. Also, the $1 tier wallpapers will be shared with my newsletter subscribers the following month. You can also take part in my Surprise Mail Swap – I will often include leftovers from previous Happy Mail rewards in my reply.
