Fans Of Horror Tree!

Our store might not be officially set up yet to the public or look that great but you can check out some great shirts and more from Horror Tree at Our Official Store and order them. The look will be drastically changed when this shop goes live, but I wanted to make sure that you knew the option was out there.

There is one other outlet as well you could look into. Much as Horror Tree has a Patreon you can donate to, there is a good chance that you can donate to your favorite author this way as well! Even a dollar a month can make an impact on an author’s output as fans show their unwavering support. So be sure to search the site or their webpage for a link to see how you can help them out!

If you’re looking for some other suggestions on what to get for writers be sure to check out our 2016 edition as well! I may not have written one last year…

I hope that at least one of these ideas may have caught your eye to get for a friend or add to your own wishlist!
