Well, what do ya know? It's only been two weeks since I last published a newsletter! Go me!
With Reedsy deciding to add a fee to their weekly contest, I will slowly be pulling my material off their platform. I really never expected to win the contest anyway, I was mainly using the prompts as tools to help me adhere to a deadline. I will be publishing the material to Kindle Vella.
Here's what's cool about Kindle Vella:
Readers get the first three episodes of a given serial for free. For authors, this hopefully means that readers will be interested in continuing to read their work following the first three episodes.
The thing that sucks about Kindle Vella is that it's open to US residents only on both the author and reader platforms. So I also intend to keep the stories available elsewhere. I'll probably continue to make them available on Odysee and on my Patreon, although heaven only knows that I haven't had much success growing an audience on either of those. So I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do there. I guess I'll just fly by the seat of my pants like I always do while flinging things at the wall and seeing what sticks.
This also means that I may be sharing weekly material on some of the blog hops again. For the foreseeable future, I'll continue making the first chapter of the Cloned Heat series available for the MFRW Steam Hop/MFRW Author week. For the rest of the month, I'll share another piece of work. I guarantee that I will also continue to be a piece of work.
Cloned Heat is due to wrap at the end of the year. I'm thinking of starting a new erotica series to be published on Kindle Vella. The serial that I just started is Lovecraftian sci-fi fantasy. It contains no explicit erotica.
I'm still ironing out the details with the Roost Recommendations posts.
I wonder what it would be like to be one of those people from Planet Organized. Do people from Planet Organized tend to feel like they have a noose around their neck and a vicious taskmaster screaming at them to get 50 different things done at once? Because that's how I feel most of the time.
Overall, I'm doing a bit better. I keep doing this stuff because I love it, but sometimes it gets discouraging that none of it ever seems to amount to a hill of beans.
See you at the Hops.
