So… big news, y’all! We’re on Patreon!

Which feels super exciting and honestly a little bit weird and okay kinda scary too. 

Forever Young Adult has been around since 2009, and it’s become a community that we’re incredibly thankful for, not to mention proud of fostering. We wouldn’t be here after all of these years if it weren’t for YOU, our loyal readers.

When we had to build a new site from scratch in 2021, we were overwhelmed by the financial support we received from the FYA community. It meant oh so much to us! (Seriously, SO much.)

The hosting structure of the new site brought awesome updates and changes, but it also included new costs, and unfortunately revenue from the FYA Store isn’t enough to help us break even.

After much discussion and some heartburn (no one likes asking for money!), we decided to launch this Patreon. Our goal is simply to cover our hosting costs, and we hope that y’all will consider supporting us in whatever capacity you can, and if that’s not through this Patreon, perhaps it’s through buying FYA merch or sharing a post on your social media or starting up a local chapter of the FYA Book Club. Or maybe all you can do is continue visiting the site, and gosh darn it, we’d be grateful for that too. 

As we settle into our Patreon, we hope to be able to add more benefits and cultivate a community of our patrons. We’ll be open to suggestions, of course, so please feel free to holler at us!

Until then, thank you for reading this, and thank you for being a part of our world. YA 4-ever!
