Sites like Able Muse / Eratosphere do not occur on their own. A lot of work is required by the site, and there are a lot of bills to pay (software licenses, hosting fees, security updates, hours of technical and user support - paid or do-it-ourself, etc.) ... so, much time and resource needs to be committed to the site.
To keep the site up and running smoothly, deal with the many support contingencies, and keep upgrading its functions and features as necessary, we do need your donations. We appreciate ANY amount you can donate.
If you like Able Muse / Eratosphere and enjoy the literary community we have created, and maybe, feel a sense of belonging or even 'family' to it, then we hope you'll consider donating to the community so that we can sustain and enhance it.
Donating is easy. Just click the Square Connect, or Credit Card button below and then, choose the amount you wish to donate on the next screen and submit. Or, you may also go the traditional route and snail mail a check as indicated below. For Paypal payment method, simply send money to sponsorus2 AT ablemuse.com (sorry, an automated coded button for Paypal isn't available at this time). A small amount to you means a lot to us to keep the site going!
With your help, Able Muse / Eratosphere will keep improving with each new
issue. Our goal is to become self-sustaining and even pay contributors.
