A few answers to things people have asked me:
1. No, I am not holding anything finished hostage. This is just a way of moving things up onto the "paid work" list, which gets them finished and posted faster.
1b. ...on the other hand, I will still be pacing stories. So I'm not going to post a new short the day after a book comes out, just for the sake of my own sanity. That's why I'm not promising hard delivery dates.
2. Yes, you can "tip" me any time, but it won't go into the "tip jar total," which is what I'm basing my schedule off of. You can also wait until I decide to do this again (probably in six months or so).
3. Yes, this particular tip jar is for InCryptid stories only. If I open a jar for another series, it will be clearly marked as such.
3b. No, you can't tell me what series to take tips for next.
If you had been meaning to tip, or wanted to tip before the jar closed tonight, you can PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise that is really my account, despite the weirdness of the email address and spelling.
Thanks to everyone who's donated so far, and I will post both a total collected and a "what I am committing to" after the tip jar closes.
