Patreon Feedback

Dear Patrons,
It has been a while since I started giving early access to Cooking With Wild Game as a reward in Patreon, and I will really appreciate it if you can give me some feedback on the schedule.

Is the gap between releases too far? Do you prefer 3 (web novel length) chapters per week? Or maybe a parallel release of a different project? Do let me know by posting in the comments.

What about the goal? Should I set something else?

Thank you.
Cheers Skythewood
