Maybe because of this:

While I am more than happy to see his stories return. I am also sorry his attempt to earn some money failed. He is one of the good story tellers and my only regret is I do not have the income to support any of them. So I am really grateful for any of their stories they share with me.

The problem probably was, that he paywalled his back-catalog, which in turn pissed off potential Patreons.

BTW, the site I posted has rankings, Nick Scipio is currently the best-paid Author in the "Adult writing" category.

From the message I received after sending him a message. The problems were with Patreon management. I will not quote it here however since I do not have permission to do so.

I think he'd be better off making e-books of his stories available for sale at $5.95 on www.lulu.com

@Ernest Bywater

If he wanted to restrict free access, yes.

He also could have done all of the following:
- Free access to all stories
- selling ebooks on commercial sites that don't care about those stories being free elsewhere
- being on Patreon as a supplementary with preview access to currently written stories, and not as the end-all only place for his stories.

On the statistics link I posted, you can see that some Artists are going from peanuts to thousands of dollar in 6 to 12 months. But you need to be in the "publics eye", your fans need to have the opportunity to sample your works.

Of course, we don't know what happened to the Patreon page from jryter, it looks like a ban of some kind

I admit I don't try to make a living of the sales, but everything I post here is for sale on Lulu and I get quite a few sales there, especially when I post something new. What I do is post the full story at Lulu when I start to post the story here. I'm still getting Lulu sales of stories posted here years ago.

No, we can't know for sure, but if you follow the link to their community guidelines, my guess would be that he ran afoul of this:

We ask creators to flag themselves as Adult Content if you create any content that has mature themes such as sexuality or graphic violence. We also require that all public content on your page be appropriate for all audiences. Content with mature themes must be marked as a patron-only post.

JRyter

I just ran upon this topic and wanted to add my 2 pennies. Yes, I did run afoul with the Rules @ Patreon. BUT, because I refused to edit out ALL teenage sex, they suspended my story site. I was in contact with them for over two weeks, they would only answer after three to four days when I questioned them. Finally, I told them to stick it up their ass. I looked for a way out that would stop the billing to my Patrons. I cancelled my account. That closed all billing and I left $3.58 on the table when I walked out. There was nothing public on my site that was ADULT in nature. Their biggest gripe - so they said - was incest - PERIOD. The teen sex they bitched about, but anything that even looks like incest gets them riled. They got me riled and I left. In all, I was there about 65 days and netted just over $400.00. I thought I was on my way.... But, I was on my way out the back door instead.

Heads-Up to anyone with teen sex and especially incest - in their stories - they will come after you - and they will win.

Before I pulled the plug at Patreon I sent Lazeez a message asking if I could post my stories here. He said yes. I think he may have thought I was going to post a few new stories. He never faltered, he has posted all my original stories that I've submitted - and I have thanked him... many times.

I did go back and raise the age of my characters, on my older stories being re-posted here - to meet the current guidelines in Canada.

If you have any questions or comments that you would rather not post here, you can reach me at jryter07@gmail.com and I'll be glad to reply.

You might talk to Nick Scipio about how managed to get around that issue if you wanted to try again.

Some other authors have made the subscription leap by making new content available early but keeping the older stuff out there on free sites to keep their name up.

LonelyDad

I believe that any incest occurred in the books posted before the rules change, not that I can remember any incest occurring at all. Of course, it's been several years since I read any part of the saga, so CRS may apply here.

PeckingChicken

Yeah maybe. The story veered in that direction and then veered away. I think I was thinking about some of the side stories that other authors have added.

@JRyter

Well I am glad you are back and posting here. As to earning money from your writing, Ernest had a good suggestion.

Cheers

I am glad The Cowboy Is Riding Again.

@JRyter

Will you try to post your stories with original ages somewhere? ASSTR is back up (for now).
