You received The Prologue to my gothic novel Obscurity on Friday at midnight—and you’ll receive a new chapter every Friday at midnight until… October, when chapters lock down for paid subscribers only. Read these next few chapters and see if they’re something you’re into. If you want to keep reading, or even just want to support my newsletter, become a paid subscriber and receive new chapters every week through June of 2022.
Thanks for inspiring me to publish my novel(s) on SubStack. I appreciate how you laid out your approach and hope that it was really successful!
This is great. You're going to have much success with Obscurity.
I am going to publish more fiction at igreviews.substack.com as soon as I get some original art. I'll also serialize a novel or two. It'll probably be completely free! Good luck, Elle.
I am soooo super excited for this!!! And congratulations!!
Congrats on your launch, Elle! I've been reading your articles and interviews all summer and you've inspired/convinced me to serialize my books on Substack later this fall.
Very excited to read Obscurity! Congrats on the release.
I am rooting for you! 😀
Mazel Tov on the launch! 🥳
Looking very forward to get reading! I have one question about the subscription model though: Is it possible to purchase the 50$/year thing first and then - if lets say I would love the book - to switch to the 200$ one?
Hope your idea works out - routing for you!
It begins! Huge congratulations on reaching this milestone, this must be a very exciting month for you. :)
I thoroughly enjoyed the prologue and am looking forward to what comes next. I'm also, of course, keeping a very close eye on your release strategy and the nuts-and-bolts of how you're going about this, as I'm hoping to start serialising my next book at the end of this month.
I like the accountability and transparency you've put into this intro post. Rather than going down the hard sell, or trying to make it sound like everyone will love your book, you're going down a route that gives readers a much better insight into your character. Which I'm sure is strategically very deliberate, but it works well. ;)
Looking forward to Friday's chapter.
I love how you broke all of this down. :)
