Q. What is Digital 50?
Digital 50 is a subscription based sales model which allows you, the reader access to every digital book I publish for the next ten years, or fifty books, whichever happens first.
Q. What makes this different from just buying them outright?
You can of course buy them as they’re released but Digital 50 allows you access to those books weeks, sometimes months in advance of the official publication date. And with the upfront fee, you’re getting a massive discount. My books are generally priced between $2.99 and $4.99. Spread that over multiple titles for ten years and you’re getting the books for practically nothing, delivered to you by the author in whichever digital format you prefer.
Q. Are there any other incentives?
Oh yes. Every subscriber will also receive an original short story which will be written just for them, and which will be signed by the author. You will also get access to story notes and “behind the scenes” material for some books which will not be in the official releases.
Q. How much does it cost?
As the name suggests, it costs $50.00. This not only covers the book subscription, but also compensates for the time it will take me to write original short stories for the subscribers. And considering I rarely write new stories for less than professional rates (5 – 10 cents a word), that too is a bargain!
Q. How do you pay?
Payment is via Paypal to elderlemon2010 (at) aol dot com
Q. When does my subscription begin?
As soon as payment is received. You will not only receive the next book upon it’s release, but also any books that have already been sent to Digital 50 subscribers.
Q. What if I want to cancel?
You can cancel at any time by sending an email to the above address.
Q. Will I get a refund?
You will be refunded your subscription fee minus the retail cost of any books you’ve already received. However, if you’ve already received your signed short story manuscript, no refund will be possible, as that will be considered payment for the story.
Q. When should I expect my short story?
Short stories take time, and depending on the amount of subscribers, it could take anywhere from one month to six. However you can check on the status of your story at any time by dropping me an email at the above address.
Q. What’s the next step?
Simply Paypal your subscription fee to me at elderlemon2010 (at) aol dot com, and then drop me an email to the same address with your name, the format in which you’d like your digital books delivered, and a mailing address to which I can send your short story manuscript. You will receive a confirmation from me shortly thereafter.
Alternatively, you can include the above information directly through your Paypal purchase.
Q. I have other questions not addressed here. Can I email you for clarification?
Absolutely. Just use the above email and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
Q. I don’t read digital. Will you be offering a “Print 50” anytime soon?
That may indeed be a future endeavor, but as the print releases tend to be a lot slower and the cost a lot higher, it will take some time to figure out.
