It’s the last day of Launch Week for “The Surrogate Sea (Book Six of The Wilderhark Tales)”. (Have you bought your copy(ies) yet? All retail links conveniently grouped here.) That means one more day of fun new guest posts going live on my virtual book tour’s blog stops. (Full tour schedule to be found here.) It’s also the last day to enter my giveaway (details likewise found here), so rack up those raffle points while you can!
Now, hold onto your hats, ‘cause I’ve got an announcement for you. (Are you hat-holding? Don’t blame me if the winds blow them off. Those of you who’ve already devoured your copies of “The Surrogate Sea” know quite well what winds are like.)
I’ve mentioned here and there that the next, second-to-last book in the Wilderhark Tales series will be not a full novella, but a collection of shorter stories. Now I’m excited to tell you that there’s another source of Wilderhark short stories coming your way.
Launching today, it’s Channillo, a brand new digital publishing platform for series of short stories, essays, articles, book chapters, journals, poetry… and what shall hereby be known as The Wilderhark Talettes!
Think of Channillo like a magazine, except you get to pick and choose which regular features you want included in your subscription. Quoting Channillo:
[We are] a place for avid readers to enjoy high quality and original work on an ad-free platform … Membership plans start at just $2.59/month. Channillo pays each writer (or chosen charity) based on the number of members subscribed to their series. By subscribing to Channillo series you are directly supporting your favorite writers!
So here’s the deal, y’all: Subscribe to my Wildehark Talettes series today, and it will not only get you a new short story based in the Wilderhark world once a month (how awesome is that?!), it’ll also earn you another 10 raffle points in the “Surrogate Sea” Launch Week Giveaway! **Just let me know with a declaration of “Subscribed!” in the comments below.** Feel free, of course, to browse Channillo to see what other series on offer strike your fancy. And fellow writer-types, if you’d like to start up a Channillo series of your own, you can apply just like I did, and if they approve your proposal, you’re in!
/End announcement. Thanks to everyone who’s so far made Launch Week for “The Surrogate Sea” such a grand one! And if/once you’ve had the chance to read the book, I’d super-duper-so-very-much appreciate it if you’d leave a review on the retail sites. ❤ in advance for taking the time.
