Month to Month

From now on the zine will be available on a month to month basis. I am doing this for a few reasons. Mostly, I want a slightly smaller, more manageable, more intimate readership. Managing the the mailing list has become a fair amount of work, so removing subscriptions will reduce my workload significantly. Not having a list of subscribers will also free me up creatively. I la la love to write the zine, but when I accept money up front, there can be a shift from wanting to write to having to write.

     The zine will still come out each month. I am in a good place in regards to ideas and motivation, so we should see months and months of continued digest goodness.

     Today I will be a stat-blocking fool. The cover for no. 12 will also be in any day. Things are still on schedule for a mid-July release. :)

  1. Consider it ordered either way.

  2. Will those of up having an existing sub have it "run out" on issues and then have to order?

    1. Hi Herb,

      Yes, so I will send a little note with your last issue that says, "Please check out the Loviatar blog from time to time to see when a new issue is available. :)"

  3. I'm with Tim. It's ordered either way. If freeing you up from book-keeping means more stuff? I have no objection to that.

    1. I'm also hoping to give readers a bit more of choice so that they can pay for the content they want and pass on that which they don't.

  4. Hopefully, you can shoot out a reminder email to those who are on the list letting them know as each new monthly is pressed. I think it's great to recognize that you want to keep this as fun and interesting for yourself and the readers rather than make it routine. Well thought out!

    1. That's a great idea. Hopefully people will have this blog's feed in their blog roll and I will also alert people via Google+.
