From the author: A discussion of what the subscription tiers entail, and what you get for your money in general
So, what will your money buy you here?
Well, for starters, I’m looking at this as a tiered subscription situation. Don’t worry, though, it’s really simple:
So, I said ‘full reading access’ earlier. What does that entail?
At the most basic level, I promise a new ~5000 word story every month. You will get that for every month you subscribe, guaranteed.
But I’m also approaching this from a crowdfunding point of view. In essence, you are collectively my employers if you’re subscribed here, and you deserve the same consideration any other employer receives. That means as the collective buy-in increases, so will what I’m promising to provide.
This isn’t a matter of some hidden calculations that you’ll have to take my word for. My usual rate is 8c a word. Curious Fictions takes 25% off the top of payments for their own upkeep. That means for me to get 8c, you have to pay 10.6̅6̅c. I’m already promising you 5000 words a month, so that’s $533.33. For every $106.66 paid in beyond that, you will receive an extra thousand words each month.
To put it very simply, the more people who subscribe and the more money they pay, the more -everyone- subscribed gets in return.
And that’s it! If you have any questions or concerns about how all this works, let me know in the comments.
