We’re not a massive conglomerate. We write for the love of it, but we’re not naive. We know we can’t live on air balls and bubbles. We can’t pay the rent with exposure. And because we’ve both been writing for decades, we’re under no illusions. For the vast majority of writers – even those lucky enough to be signed to a big publisher – writing is not a lucrative profession.

You might have noticed there are no adverts on this website. The reason for this is simple: We want you to enjoy reading our stories. Adverts are annoying.

So we’d really appreciate it if you’d purchase a subscription to the site for as little as $1 a month, which will allow you to access all our premium content. If you prefer to pay on an à-la-carte basis, you can. All you need is a CoinTent account; you can set one up in 5 minutes simply by visiting their site, or by clicking the CoinTent link on individual premium pages.

Rest assured, the vast majority of the stuff on this website will always be free. (We like free things as much as anyone else.) However, the more subscribers we have, the more fun stuff there will be for everyone.
