Amazon or Patreon
After logging into your Amazon account, search for the titles and authors or follow the direct links below. Note: only available to American readers.
You can read all complete serials and the current on-going serial on Patreon. The lowest tiers offer all the stories available for reading; the higher tiers offer you chances to vote and change the on-going story, grant you behind-the-scenes access to how the story develops, and writing advice, critiques, or coaching.
How to Crown the Story
ONE OF THE MOST HELPFUL THINGS A READER CAN DO IN VELLA IS CROWN THE STORY!
Following the story helps you to find the story again and not miss an episode, but "thumbs up" at the each of every episode or the weekly Crown makes all the difference in the world to the author. It changes rank and bonuses.
TO CROWN A STORY:
Crowns refresh on Sunday; you only get one per week
You must have paid for an episode to give a crown
After reading an episode, Amazon usually prompts you to Crown. If it doesn't there's a "fave" counter on the website beside your token counter. If you have a crown to give, you can select it there and choose the story.
