From "What the Moon Brings" by H.P. Lovecraft

I've been considering making a Substack for sharing my work and seeing yours convinced me that it's the right move. I subscribed to your Substack, at the free level, unfortunately. I'm subscribed to multiple Substacks and I haven't yet achieved enough fame and wealth to be able to afford the paid subscriptions.

Love that sentence!

Good to see you on Substack :) And I do make my posts free when possible, and they then change to paid for 5$ / month after a while so people have time to read them even if they cannot choose a paid subscription.

What is your Substack page name?
