Kickstarter Stretch Goals


Great news, gang! The subscription drive I ran on Kickstarter has fully funded.  I have the means of paying authors 1 CENT A WORD for the two issues of MYTHIC that will come out this year. But I don't want to stop there. One of the main goals other than gaining new subscribers and building that base was to improve pay for the authors. With that in mind, I am asking for your participation in raising additional funds to meet thresholds for new pay scales until we hit professional market level. Here is a quick breakdown:

If we hit $3,500 the pay goes to 2 CENTS A WORD for new fiction

If we hit $4,500 the pay goes to 3 CENTS A WORD for new fiction

If we hit $5,500 the pay goes to 4 CENTS A WORD for new fiction

If we hit $6,500 the pay goes to 5 CENTS A WORD for new fiction

If we hit $7,500 the pay goes to 6 CENTS A WORD for new fiction

I would really like to reach pro level pay of at least 5 if not 6 CENTS A WORD!

Consider supporting the Kickstarter and choose from different rewards including those with subscription options. 

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Shaun Kilgore

Editor, MYTHIC

A Kickstarter Subscription Drive

UPDATE 2/6/2021: THE SUBSCRIPTION DRIVE'S KICKSTARTER HAS FULLY FUNDED AS OF TODAY. HELP US MEET OUR STRETCH GOALS TO IMPROVE AUTHOR PAY.


A new Kickstarter is coming, everyone! I am nearly ready to launch a new campaign on the crowdfunding platform that will serve as a subscription drive to bring more people the great science fiction and fantasy tales that can be found in the pages of MYTHIC: A Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine

As you may have saw in a previous post, MYTHIC is switching to a double-sized bi-annual release schedule. There will be a Spring and Fall Issue moving forward. We are talking upwards of two hundred plus pages of fiction as well as reviews, essays, and other content.

I am looking to breath more life into MYTHIC by building up our subscriber base. The Kickstarter rewards will include individual issues of the magazine, the back issues, one and two year subscriptions in paper and eBook formats, as well as special deals like Lifetime electronic subscriptions, complete runs of the magazine in both formats and more. 

I will also add that I am planning on doing a Best of MYTHIC: Volume 1, the first of hopefully many volumes that gather together what I consider some of the best stories to be published in past issues. 

So when is this happening?

I plan to launch the Kickstarter this coming Tuesday, February 2, 2021. Here's the link to the pre-launch: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foundershouse/mythic-subscription-drive
