I’m Back and Things Are Changing Around here

Thank you for your patience with me while I revamped my reader patronage to bring it over onto my website, from Patreon, and worked out how to segment my communications for subscribers and patrons.

It's taken me a while to figure out how to ensure you are getting the information you want from me — and nothing else. Almost there now and though it's been a lot of work, I'm delighted that all my closest readers will now be served directly through my website.

Here's how it will work, going forward.


The blog will now mostly serve as a news function, rather than a place for musings, diary entries, or behind-the-books stories. I'll post snippets of such things on my social media, and more in-depth posts in my newsletters, reserved for subscribers and patrons. On the blog you can expect news of my upcoming events, online and in life, links to my newsletters, and any media or podcast appearances. A signpost to the most important things that are going on for me, books wise, right now.


Expect a newsletter shortly which will give you more details about what to expect going forward, depending on whether you're a poetry or fiction follower. I hope you'll love the changes.

If you're not yet a subscriber, you can sign up here.


If you were a poetry or fiction member on Patreon, I'll be writing shortly to let you know how to transfer your membership over.

In the new mix, patrons are my top priority, reflecting how important my patrons have become to me. You keep me writing, and I can't tell you how and I treasure your feedback and reviews.

You will now be first to read my work, hot off the creative presses. Each month, I'll be create a monthly patron newsletter with exclusive bonuses and benefits. You'll also receive discounts on my signed print editions, and other patron-only surprises.

I have set up three patron tiers, one for poetry, one for fiction, and one for all-access patrons.  More information here: https://ornaross.com/become-a-patron/

As always, I'd love to know what you think. You can contact me here.
