Denver Cereal is free due to the generous support of our patrons.

Certainly, advertisers are interested in placing ads on the site. They are more interested placing their products within the stories as subtle advertisements. For example, Jill might drive Y type of vehicle or Sandy might recommend a certain type of hair product. This type of product placement is common in television shows and in many New York publishing house bestsellers. Claudia finds this subtle advertising deceptive and refuses to put it in the Denver Cereal.

Your donation to Denver Cereal allows us to keep the site free for all and clear of advertisements including product placement within the stories. The cost of running and maintaining Denver Cereal is paid by Claudia.

There are other costs to Denver Cereal.

Claudia’s dedication to keeping Denver Cereal available for people to read on a daily basis has cost her lucrative publishing contracts with magazines and New York publishers. Further, many bookstores, even in Denver, are unwilling to carry Denver Cereal in their stores. One of her distributors has refused to distribute the books because the Denver Cereal is available for everyone. The large online retailers routinely pull Claudia’s books because they equate this website to competition to their book sales. Even online retailers require Claudia to jump through additional hoops in order to sell her books.

There was a time when Claudia could easily support this site with the proceeds from her book sales. As you probably know, that author incomes have plummeted and many, many publishing endeavors have gone out of business.

Your support helps to keep Denver Cereal available for everyone who needs a little distraction, a little love, and a way to get through the day.
