I've Launched a GoFundMe Campaign for MYTHIC

One of the challenges of an ongoing publication is financial. We all know it costs money for the cover art, the design work, and most importantly, for the fiction. That funding has to keep flowing in the form of subscriptions, possibly advertising, and more recently through crowdfunding platforms like Patreon. (A shout out to the patrons!)

I've not made it a secret that I want MYTHIC to be a professional paying market. I said that before Issue #1 appeared in December of 2016. As it stands though, MYTHIC is a semi-pro market. The lofty goal of 8 CENTS A WORD is off in the distance from the 1 CENT A WORD I can currently pay. Since it is a quarterly magazine, I like to have several stories per issue. At least 10 but often more. That adds up.

All of this leads me to announce that I've established a campaign on GoFundMe to help raise the funds I need to keep putting out issues of MYTHIC. I'm at the point where I need to throw out all the stops. Please consider donating.

You can also become a subscriber or a patron.

Thanks for reading everyone.
