To do what I want to do and to write what I like to write it's becoming apparent that I'll have to defy the norms of an industry.
Everybody understands the concept of a book. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it. Sometimes you even write a review and recommend it to friends.
But my stories aren't always "main stream".
I've been relying on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and others to help put my books out for readers to buy and that's a totally cool thing. I'll continue to write stories and put them up to these sites until they kick me off. But what if I could offer my fans something more?
What if, you could mention to your favorite author (like me) that you'd love to see more of this character or even suggest what could happen in the story─and then the author actually takes your advice and creates a scene especially for you?
Sounds too good to be true to have your own story teller write for you?
Well, as I've mentioned to my VIR's (Very Important Readers Group), I'm thinking of starting a subscription service where I write an episode or scene every day and post it for fans.
Well, with Wattpad, Radish, and a whole host of other providers, I could. But I still don't trust them. It would be the same story, different provider all over again.
No, this time, I want to build a site where readers can go to and have a new thing everyday. Not a plethora of slog to go through to *see* if you like it, but something you know you'll love.
There's a time and place to discover new authors. But sometimes, I just want a place to go where my favorite authors are writing their stories. In this day and age, I can do something about my ideal concept.
IN fact, I've started the process.
I write everyday and am perfecting the way I do things so that when it comes time to launch my story membership there will be something to read.
Which is also why I'm thinking of bringing the free stories down.
So, as they say, smoke 'em if you got 'em.
That's the just with me. Tell me what you think in the comments!
Until next week...
