I am looking into alternative business models in the hopes of making my writing a sustainable source of income. I hope to be able to create an independent infrastructure from which to market and sell my work in a way that is free from middlemen who take large chunks of any money. As such, the support of all of you would mean a lot to me.
One direction that I am looking at the moment is to implement a system whereby people pay £5 and receive a year’s worth of serialised shortstories. This will be one episode each month that range between 10k-15k words. 120,000 words minimum for £5 is incredible value for money.
The stories would be sent straight to you by email every month until the year has passed. If you sign up after a few months have already passed, all episodes from previous months will be sent to you.
Does this idea interest anybody? It would really help you out and, if you are a reader, it will give you a good amount of quality content in a fully developed fantasy world. If enough people show interest then I will post more details for you all since at the moment I am just seeing what folk think. Please let me know what you think and if you know any fantasy readers, point them in this direction for me.
Thank you all for your continued support.
