I plan on doing a Publisher’s Desk post every so often, maybe once a month, to give updates and show how I’m working behind the scenes to get Siren’s Garter up and running. Lot of work ahead of me. The website is getting there, slowly and step by step. I’ve got some cover art done, but still have some branding issues to decide on. Mostly I’m focused on creating content, both for the print/electronic periodical and for the website.
So here’s a sneak peak at the free content I have planned for the website.
Monday Quickies will be featured stories of 300 to 1,000 word length (1-5 pages), appearing every Monday on the blog. The same stories will also appear in the periodical, in a section called “Quickie Confessions.” They will be in the style of Penthouse Forum letters, short first-person accounts of intimate encounters. (Entirely fiction, of course.) Look for these to begin in April.
Hump Day Stories will be featured on Wednesday. These are short stories, 3,000 to 6,000 words long (12-25 pages, give or take), reprinted from the back issues of Siren’s Garter. The story of the week will remain free to read until the next Hump Day, when it will be replaced by the next story. I won’t begin this until I have a large stock of stories to draw from, perhaps after Issue Three or Four hits the market, so look for this in 2017.
Also further down the road, I plan to have an email newsletter. This will be strictly for announcing new titles, and will only be sent out once every month or so, if that.
Like I said, the focus now is just producing content. I’ll be around fixing up and making the website pretty, but I won’t have much to show you for a few months. I think in the next Publisher’s Desk, I’ll discuss cover art and the branding direction I’m taking with Siren’s Garter.
Until then, stay sexy!
