Y’all pray for me! My big project is due at the end of the month! Please pray that God will continue to give me strength, and let’s face it – I need some of His supernatural energy added to my natural energy to push on through! Now on to today’s topic…
It’s over folks…The media as we know it is ova…The music industry as we know it is ova…The book industry as we know it is ova…Any industry involving communication is being forced to innovate lest it be left at the gate…
Bloggers now have as much influence as trained journalists…Singers can upload videos on YouTube, and record deals will come to them…Due to the increasing popularity of self-publishing, authors can sell their work directly to readers over the Internet…
As Lamar Tyler of Black and Married With Kids says, the Gatekeepers Are Gone! Tyler even has a new Internet broadcast network MyCulture.TV. If you have a creative bone in your body and an idea in your head, it’s time to get on your grind…I kid you not…This happened to me yesterday…I just happened to be surfing the Net yesterday, and I happened upon this website of this author who has written a book with the EXACT same title and premise of a book idea that I have been thinking about since 2008…I just looked blankly at my computer screen for like 10 minutes…It was like God saying to me, “Girl, what you waiting on? You better take these ideas I give to you seriously.” I’ve been working on this project that I mentioned earlier for nearly six months, and yesterday, my energy was a little low…But after seeing that author’s website, I’m like I betta get on my grustle! (grind plus hustle)
All that being said, one of my author friends, Tiffany L. Warren, and several other authors have come up with a new idea to take their work directly to readers in a new, innovative and fresh way for the low low…Check out the details below…
You asked for us. You got us! Your favorite authors…all…the…time. No more waiting for a year to hear from your favorite author. Now you have us inside this amazing new experience where reading meets the brave new digital world. As a reader, you will enjoy fresh, exciting chapters every month as we reveal our stories to you one chapter at a time. You will travel with us on our writing journeys and watch our novels come to life on paper…and beyond.
How A Chapter A Month Works…..
A Chapter A Month will feature new material each month from 16 top-selling authors!
The length of the authors work will vary – one author is doing short-stories based on hip-hop songs, so each month, she will have a different story. Two authors are doing the first “soap operas” on paper…serials that will not end – and there will be everything in-between.
Each month, you can purchase any chapter from any author for .99 cents. Now, we’re calling it “a chapter,” but trust, these are not short chapters that are in full-length books. These chapters are far more extensive. We promise you, you will get more than your money’s worth.
There will be “Preferred Readers” packages where you will receive “benefits for membership.” For example, if you purchase 5 authors for $4.95 per month, you will have a certain level of access to the authors. If you purchase 10 authors for $9.99 per month, you will have another level of access, plus be entered into a quarterly contest where winners will receive anything from gift cards, to e-readers…and maybe even a visit from an author. Details will follow on the website.
Authors you love…all the time: ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Parry “Ebony Satin” Brown, Tinesha Davis, Virginia DeBerry, Lolita Files, Trice Hickman, Donna Hill, Travis Hunter, Candy Jackson, RM Johnson, Dwayne S. Joseph, Bernice McFadden, Stephanie Perry Moore, Victoria Christopher Murray, Pat Tucker, Tiffany L. Warren….and joining soon…Carleen Brice, Nina Foxx, Carol Mackey, Rhonda McKnight, Marissa Monteilh, and a few more….
Check them out at A Chapter A Month which will officially start tomorrow!
