Starting at 10pm CT on 3/22, Celebrity Space will be featured on DailyCheapReads.com. The feature will be up for 24 hours and will end on 3/23.
I was very excited when Paula, the site owner, told me my short story would be posted. This site is well known for its large following of readers/potential buyers. In order to have a novel posted, the book must:
-Be under $5
-Have 5 substantive reviews
However, Paula informed me that she puts short stories on a different track than novels. It takes far less time to have your short story posted and you don't have to have as many reviews (Celebrity Space did have 5 though).
I think this will be an interesting study marketing-wise. Is the general public interested in trying short stories? Paula told me that she doesn't have a whole lot of sci-fi readers, but she is going to add an intro blurb mentioning to people that a short story could be a perfect way to "test the waters." So we'll see how it goes!
