Hello my friends. I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for, well, everything. Thank you for reading and commenting (some fantastic comments on yesterday’s post! I think I replied to all of you) and guest reviewing and, not at all least for being Patrons. Your patronage has made it possible for me to review a lot of cool stuff and has helped me report on very cool events.
I’m going to be giving a talk in NYC in March and in April I will be flying out to San Francisco to participate in Queers & Comics 2017 with brilliant creators and writers and academics. And so, I am turning to you hoping to entice you to become part of my Okazu Patreon, with a little added incentive. ^_^
As a Patron of $5/month or more you get a badge that proclaims that you are an Okazu Hero or Superhero. At $25/more you get a nifty little omamori I made up special for Okazu no miko, which was the super dorky, yet loving, title I came up with for that level. ^_^
When you, as a Patron, have supported us for $25, no matter what the level, you are entitled to your own personal Yuri chat with me. I’ve done this a few times with Patrons at a couple of levels and it’s always a blast. This year, we’re also adding something a little different.
As you know, every winter I put together eclectic collections of Yuri manga, toys, random items, candy, utter crap and other cool things and hold Lucky Box sales. This year, I’ve got a couple of boxes, jam -packed full of manga, magazines, candy, toys, stickers and random crap and I’m giving them away to Okazu Patrons. I’ll be holding two Lucky Box Raffles special for Okazu Patrons.
One raffle is especially for current Patrons. (I loathe contests that exclude current customers. Aren’t they just so vexing?) I’ll be emailing them shortly about that.
And, this is where you come in – I will be offering one exclusive Lucky Box raffle entry for new Patreon supporters who join before February 28, 2017.
Become a Patron at any amount and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a exclusive Okazu Lucky Box. People who have gotten them in the past have described them as “Amazing…in a couple of ways,” “Full of strange stuff, but fun!” and “I love it!” I always cram the box as full as possible.
Disclaimers & Restrictions
Sorry, but there has to be a few restrictions.
You *must* be over 18 to receive a Lucky Box. I don’t police what goes in it and some magazines and manga are likely to be for not-children readers. I may throw in a lolly for your kid, or for you if you don’t want to share.
Lucky Box winners must be from the continuous 48 states. I use US Postal Service flat rate boxes, which means that I can cram a ton of stuff in the things, but it also means there’s limits on where they can go. However, if you subscribe from overseas, I will figure something out to thank you. I have really cool postcards and I’m not afraid to use them. ^_^
In conclusion, please consider helping me get to Queers & Comics, help pay Guest Reviewers and help keep up the work we do and the fun we have here at Okazu by subscribing on Patreon.
