We Reached Our Goal. Let’s Keep Going.
Thank you to everyone who donated! The support has been pouring in and we reached our goal faster than we ever imagined we would. We’re stunned in the best way possible.
The rapid success of this campaign shows just how hungry people are for innovations in publishing. Every reader knows how good it feels when you find something truly great to read, and Recommended Reading will make that wonderful moment of discovery come easy and often. For free.
The $10,000 goal was set to fund the first two months of the magazine. But Recommended Reading won’t stop after two months and neither will we. So let’s keep going. Our new goal is $20,000. Eventually the magazine will be sustained by offering exclusive sponsorships in each issue, but until then, additional funding will enable us to:
Create a better, more sophisticated reader experience.
Integrate comment tools to allow for social reading.
Develop an iPad/iPhone/Android app.
Generate more enhanced content such as audiobooks and Single Sentence Animations.
Host more readings, lit parties, and author events.
Develop interactive, multimedia storytelling experiences.
Print a best-of anthology.
Make more merchandise.
And, as always, continue to pay writers for their original work and reprints.
