This is a bit of personal episode but it touches on finding your true audience by expressing your authentic self.
Once you find those true fans, and you're honest and open with them and serve them up the entertainment they love, I think you've got them for life.
We recently went through a major transition in Aeon 14, and me with my writing partner. I was ready for fans to revolt but they've supported us in amazing ways. I can't express how much gratitude I've felt in the last month, and how inspired I've been to create meaningful, honest work.
Also, sorry for the break!
