Transparency and Income Reports
On this page, you’ll find a gross income report of earnings from my creative endeavors. Any money I make from sources other than my freelance creative services work will be considered. That includes royalties from my books and music, donations, patronage, subscriptions and advertising income from my email litzine Thing and my serial fiction project Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights, course income, and affiliate income from products and services I use in my creative endeavors.
Why Do I Do This Income Report?
- I believe creators and consumers are peers and partners. If only through commerce (and ideally in many other ways as well), we form a community and have a relationship with one another. Communities, and relationships, are made stronger by honesty and openness.
- I’ve put my faith in the generosity of my patrons. They deserve to know how it’s going!
- Sharing my income keeps me motivated to continue to create, to market, and to hustle.
- I’ve issued a transparency challenge to independent authors and other creators. I’ve gotta walk the walk!
