Armand Rosamilia on Patreon – Updated!


I’m on Patreon. I started it not to become rich (but I won’t complain if I do) but to find another outlet for my writing and creativity. To that end I post a continuing Dying Days YA novella with a new chapter the beginning of each month. I have no idea when it will end. The fun is just writing another chapter and seeing where it goes. Hell, it might end up becoming a Dying Days YA epic novel before I’m done. That’s the fun of Patreon for me.

The other thing I like to do is post short stories many readers have not seen. Stuff sitting around collecting dust I find. And after writing for most of my life, I have quite a few. I’d have more if I hadn’t lost them on floppy disks and inside a word processor and all the other antiquated technology over the years. It allows me to share a few things with the readers who are definitely interested in what I’ve written or will be writing.

Yes, I get money for it. Mostly you donate $1 and you get to read anything I post. Simple as that. I do a weekly update with all of my writing and you get to see what I’m currently working on. You also get some cool stuff if you pledge more, too:

Pledge $1 per month

You get exclusive content like my weekly update for what I am writing as well as a new first draft chapter for my Dying Days YA novella before anyone else reads them as well as either an out of print or new short story each month or a new novel I’m working on chapter by chapter. As well I’ll be posting videos of random things I shoot like story readings, answering questions or general nonsense.

Pledge $5 per month

Besides all of the above you get a shout-out on my Arm Cast: Dead Sexy Horror Podcast during the month as a very cool person!

http://www.projectiradio.com/shows/arm-cast-podcast/

Pledge $10 per month

 Besides all of the other rewards you’ll receive a FREE audiobook from me of your choice! Listen to other people read the words I wrote!
Thanks in advance for all of the support!

Authors Supporting Our Troops – January 2015 Totals #ASOT2015


Bumper Stickers

Alrighty then… the first month of the 2015 version of the event is over, and I gotta tell ya… it went way smoother than last year for me!

There were no more giant piles of books I then had to wade through and box up for the soldiers. After I opened and logged each shipment in, I was able to take a picture of the books, post them on Facebook and then they went right into boxes ready to ship to the soldiers. I made sure each box had a wide assortment of books from all genres. But I can’t take any of the credit because Special Gal told me the right way to do this… 

So… how did we do so far?

We had 117 authors/shipments arrive in the month

947 author-signed books

That’s an average of 8 books per author signed and donated… amazing!

At this rate we’ll beat our goal of 3,500 author-signed books for this year’s event, not including any books coming after the ‘official’ close date of May 1st (although I will be collecting books all year, so don’t worry)

Now, which States had the coolest authors sending us books?

This is not really all that scientific and I simply made note of who the author was and what State the package was shipped from when I recorded all of this along with how many books were involved. This is by author and not by how many books because that would be too much work and this is for fun. I don’t really need more work piled on for the event, either… 

1. California – 15 authors!

2. Florida – 10 authors!

3. Texas – 7 authors!

4. North Carolina – 6 authors!

5. Wisconsin – 5 authors!

I’m not going to point out the 16 of 50 States that didn’t have an author representing it so far, because that wouldn’t be fair… but I hope in the coming weeks a few more are checked off the list! 

I will be getting in touch via Facebook to several of the authors from Cali to get their addresses and send them an #ASOT2015 bumper sticker if they’d like them. 

I also want to thank everyone for the donations towards the huge shipping bill… we are well ahead of where we need to be for it. I would suggest everyone interested in donating please buy a shirt, so you have something cool to wear around and help spread the word! A couple of bucks from each sale goes to the shipping but, again, you get something you can be proud of and it helps spread the word when you post a picture of yourself in it!

BUY AN #ASOT2015 SHIRT!

7 Mail Days Into #ASOT2015


ASOTbumpersticker

This is going to be a short but fun post from me. After the first 7 official mailing days of Authors Supporting Our Troops 2015 I can relate the following:

1. The incoming and outgoing boxes are heavy and I’m out of shape

2. We’ve received 286 books from 35 boxes mailed from authors, making it an average of 8.2 books per box

3. So far, Texas leads the way with 5 authors sending books, with Florida and Kentucky tied for second place with 3 each. Five different States are tied for third with 2 each. (I’m not going to kill myself with these numbers or worry about different authors in each box or anything else that makes this complicated… this is for fun to let everyone know who is helping out)

4. At the end of the month I’ll tally up which State had the most authors sending in boxes (multiple shipments from the same author won’t count) and I’ll send everyone from that State a free #ASOT2015 bumper sticker. How’s that sound? We’ll do it every month until May, so there will be four chances to win and I’ll reset it each month and then maybe do a bigger last win at the end for a grand total… I’m just tossing ideas out right now, so don’t mind me.

5. I am amazed and humbled by all the support so far for the event. We’ll have a ton of books to send to soldiers, but it means we’ll also need help with the shipping costs via donations and buying t-shirts this year again. And, we’ll need quite a few soldiers in remote areas of the world to send the books to, as well…

Authors Supporting Our Troops – Soldiers Needed


1381445_10203518780470249_1789161967_n

I am amazed at all of the authors asking the information about donating signed books to the Authors Supporting Our Troops event, as well as non-authors wanting to donate money to help with the massive shipping costs. You can find out everything you need to know Here.

With the goal of 3,000 author-signed books shipped in 2015, the only part of the equation I’m a little worried about is actual soldiers to send books to. 

This is where you hopefully come in and help…

Are you a family member of someone in the military (any branch) or friends with someone who is currently overseas in a remote area? We’d love to make contact with you and send over a couple of boxes of books so they can share them with their unit. I’m not interested in a company that does this or a random person, i want to actually touch people you know… 

The greatest thing for me is seeing the pictures of the soldiers opening the boxes and taking out the books. It makes all the hours spent receiving, opening, taking pictures of, sorting and packaging the thousands of books worth it for us. 

All I need is the soldier’s name and address and the basic dates of when they’ll be stationed overseas and where. That’s it. Contact me at  armandrosamilia@gmail.com and we can talk. 

*   *   *   *   *

For the rest of today I’m going to run a mini-contest… I want to build up the followers on the Authors Supporting Our Troops Facebook page, so I’d love some help…

Anyone sharing the group on your Facebook page and letting people know what we’re trying to accomplish will get a free ‪#‎ASOT2014‬ sticker (shown) mailed to them. Also, random envelopes will contain other cool stuff (maybe bookmarks, coupon codes for free audiobooks and/or eBooks,etc.) and a lucky random winner will also get signed print books from me as well… how does that sound?

If you share the link to the group and say something about it, all you have to do is then PM me your physical address and I’ll begin sending out the thank-you envelopes until I run out of stickers (I think we have about 50 left, so hurry up!)

As always, thank you for the support! And we’re always looking for more soldiers in remote areas to send boxes of books to as well!
