You may have noticed that the fanfiction chapters for Team 8 and NOFP are labeled “Complete: Sneak Preview is up on Patreon” for about a week. What does this mean? Normally, when I write a chapter of one of my stories, there is about a week’s time during which my beta readers help me polish it. Then it is posted on FanFiction.net for public consumption. That hasn’t changed.
What has changed?
I now have a Patreon page where subscribers generously offer financial support for my original fiction writing. Since many of those subscribers also enjoy my fanfiction stories, one of the perks offered on Patreon for subscribers at $15+ level is a “sneak preview” of the chapter when I’m finished writing it but the beta readers are still helping me polish it.
Does this mean I have to wait longer for fanfiction chapters?
The short answer is no. Normally I spend some time with beta readers polishing the chapter, finding typos, fixing awkward sentences, etc. before publishing the chapter to FanFiction.net. The chapter will be posted to FanFiction.net once the beta readers are finished with their commentary as usual. You will still be able to read any of my fanfiction stories on the FanFiction.net site once it is posted there. There is of course no charge for any of my fanfiction stories.
