Join The Cause

And by “The Cause”, I mean this site.  Still here? Good.  So what can you do to help out?

Subscribe – The reason I’m doing this whole thing (writing and posting stories) is that I believe that I have something to say (and apparently you agree, or you wouldn’t be here), something that is entertaining and that no one else is saying.  So click on the little rss button and make sure you don’t miss anything or put your e-mail address in the box on the sidebar over there.

Spread the Word – OK, so you read my stuff.  You laugh, you cry, you find inner peace (note: your experience may vary), but you keep it to yourself.  Maybe you thought to yourself, “hey me, Tom is just so cool, anyone who hasn’t already heard of him doesn’t deserve to see his world-expanding work.”  You have a point.  But really, yours is not a very charitable worldview, after all, we are defined as a species not by our limits, but rather by our capacity to exceed them.  So tell the world.  Tweet it.  Like it on Facebook.  Start a Tom Dillon reading group.  Print up a shirt and wear it publicly.  Surprise me.

Become an Early Reader – Hemingway once said (before he died, of course), “The first draft of anything is shit.”  That describes my stuff, too.  So if you want to help out, drop me a line, and you can get a chance to help out with my not-quite-finished stories.  We all win.

Donate – So you subscribe.  And you wear your shirt to your Tom Dillon reading group every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. You have built a social empire of my work.  Still you are unsated, what now? Simple. Give me money. Flattr my stories. Send unmarked cash in the mail. Donate by PayPal.  It’s for a good cause.  You’ll feel better, I swear.
