Profile Information

About Me:
J. Leland Kupferberg is a founder of, and artistic participant in, the newly launched website PatronQuo.com - a unique online initiative to promote fiction writers through a patronage model.

The aim? To bring undiscovered, overlooked, and underrated literary talent directly to the readers. On PatronQuo, readers, fans, and visitors are urged to become patrons of the authors they deem most worthy of their support. In turn, each patron gets their own profile and a prominent placement on the story or novel excerpt page that they have offered their patronage for.

Readers also get a chance to weigh in by voting on the randomized Match Bouts that appear at the foot of each story page throughout the site. For those who love to offer their opinions about what's worth reading, this is the site for you. For those who crave their literary platters to be served up with a side order of stats, sport, and competition, there is really nothing quite like this on the Web.

So, come and participate in the Web's most innovative online showcase for contemporary literary talent. Come as a participating writer, reader, patron, fan, blogger, reviewer, or judge. On PatronQuo, you - the reader - determines whose work is worthy enough to rise to the top of the rankings.
If you are a blogger (required), or have a website:
See who tops the money rankings in the writing competition that never ends!

Follow us on Facebook for the latest news, updates, and announcements on PatronQuo.com.

For fans of literary death matches, you might also want to join the fray and participate in the Online Literary Death Matches Group here on BookBlogs.

We also run the PatronQuo.com Blog, where you may follow the latest stats announcements, promotions, and our highly entertaining Author and Patron Spotlight features.

If you're interested in setting up an interview to to discuss PatronQuo.com, I may be reached at admin at PatronQuo dot com .

Dear J. Leland (or just Leland) I would like to be your friend on Bookblogs and it would be very nice if you would also be my friend on www.goodreads.com.

I will have a look at your invitation and if I have time I will be happy to join in. I don't understand Bookblogs, being 100% new to it, but I don't really get all the "attach a gift" stuff. What's it all about, can you tell me? People who write books don't make much money. How does it work? Thanks for explaining it, if you will.

Welwyn (http://welwynsworld.blogspot.com). I don't really know what my bookblog id is yet. !!! (embarrassed grin).

Thanks Leland, but I'm way too busy with my own to do that. I belong to authonomy and youwriteon and have stopped participating for the same reason. Again, thanks for the suggestion,.
