I have updated "The Power of Patronage" in the Crowdfunding section to include the second half of that article.
The "Serial Poetry" page has been updated for the microfunded poems that have recently been completed, and for the 12 new poems added to Monster House during yesterday's mid-month Poetry Fishbowl.
I have updated the description for the Fiorenza series on the Serial Poetry page. It still had the placeholder title of "Poems about Fiorenza, the Italian Herbalist" with very sketchy background. Now it says "Fiorenza the Wisewoman," has a more detailed background, and is alphabetized in the list under "F" instead of "P."
I have updated the Serial Poetry page to list some newly written poems in Monster House and Path of the Paladins. Also, "From the Free City" is now complete in Fiorenza, the Italian Herbalist.
I have reposted the first part of an article I wrote for ErgoFiction, "Crowdfunding for Readers: The Power of Patronage." It explains the idea of cyberfunded creativity and what patrons can get out of it, with a particular focus on weblit.
