Happy Thanksgiving! It turns out that my Medicare doesn't cover $262 of my final cancer surgery. So to make up the extra cash, I've reduced the price on all my remaining Woohooligan T-Shirts for a Thanksigiving-Black-Friday-Cancer-Treatment Sale. Could you have a look and share this journal, because it'd really help us out!
Thanks so much!
Hey guys! Thanks so much for all your support, it means the world to me!
I could really use your help generating more exposure for my comics. If you could give me a little featurette in your DA journal, or recommend me to the blogs you read or podcasts you listen to, I'd really appreciate that!
This past week I heard back from the dermatologist that I do indeed have cancer! Melanoma to be exact. And while a lot of things have been going on over here for a very long time, and I've tried to be stoic and take them all in stride, the cancer is sort of the last straw for me, forcing me to be more optimistic and more aggressive, getting out there and getting what I want out of life. If I've got to contend with the stress of autism (2007), provide for a family of 7 (2011), diabetes (2014), losing my disability income (2015) and now this past week cancer, then I'm going to do what I want with my life, damn it! (I know, my life sounds like a Lifetime movie. I gotta play with the cards I'm dealt.)
And so far it's working! Last week I started asking people for more help getting exposure for Woohooligan and I have gotten quite a lot of help! A bunch of people (a dozen or so) shared my Patreon page on their Facebook timelines, I got a flood of new subscribers on the Woohooligan Facebook page, I got a couple new patrons on my Patreon page and I'm up to $34.90/mo. I have just about a year to get from there to about $2,000/mo between Patreon, books, advertising, etc. to replace my disability income. So every little bit that you can do, every friend you can share it with, I'm ever so grateful!
So if you'd like to help me out, here are all the things you can share with people:
The site: www.woohooligan.com - the latest story starts here.
Deviant Art: feature comics you've liked in your journal or in the groups you participate in
Patreon: www.patreon.com/woohooligan - this is where you can pledge a dollar or so a month to help me keep making Woohooligan.
Thanks, and stay awesome, Hooligans!
