Some people have asked for easier ways to subscribe to the Secret Short Story Society. I am obliging.
The Secret Short Story Society (S4), got a little bit of a boost with our most recent Issue "The Ritual". Turns out people like getting little surprise packages of goodies and a story to go along with it!
I started S4 as a way to get my stories into the hands of readers at my own expense. Now I can safely tell you guys that it's worth the money I'm asking. I believe in it so much that I've upgrade my website to make it easier to bring you these S4 Subscription Packages! Let me break it down just a little.
What is S4? If you haven't read my previous blogs on this, it's a monthly subscription in which you get one short story and coordinating goodies. Below are photos from Issues #1 & 2.
What will the story be about? *shrugs* My standard S4 is a motley assortment of genres and themes. Sometime I don't know what it will be until I start writing! I can promise it to be fun for multi-genre readers.
What if you're not into some genres? Easy! I added a Pick a Theme option! Since it's brand new, we can only offer it one month at a time, unlike the One Month, Three Month and One Year subscriptions for the standard S4.
With Pick a Theme, you do just that! Pick a genre you DO like and I'll write a story. If you pick a theme that falls under one of our previous S4 subscriptions, you'll get that. If I write a new story in that genre, it may find it's way into the standard S4 rotation later in the year. Either way, it's a fun experience!
Okay, you're saying, what if I want a SPECIFIC story that I give you the details for myself? What if I want to send a special present to someone but I want to choose what the story will be about?
Never fear, we are now offering Send a Story! You will work with me via email to help craft a story for you or a recipient of your choice. Goodies are coordinated with the theme or style you request. These stories will NOT be sent with any other subscription package. I write it to spec for the person you indicate. This package starts out a little higher but prices can vary depending on what you want sent! You can even add your own touches to this package!
I'm hoping to grow this more as the months go by and my subscribers increase. You can always contact me for more information or to request a different package. I can't wait to share S4 with you!
