No more money drain...

My steely capitalist eye turned to EMG-Zine this weekend, and I started poking and prodding. Two things are happening:

  • 1. There's a deadline. If we haven't made $900 (half a year's operating expense) in subscription and anthology sales by June 31, 2011, I am officially declaring December's issue as our last and ending the thing. That doesn't actually cover the costs, since there is a certain amount of expense integral in both subscriptions and sales, but I am willing to foot some of that. I'm just not willing to keep bleeding money at the project now that I can't consider it 'advertising' for my greater money-making project(s).

  • 2. There will be a limit to how many articles you can view, either as unregistered, or as unsubscribed, per day. I need to untangle the article page a little further, but I've got a solid start on this already...

    The subscription model has changed. Check out the details (and the new anthology order page, and the fundrasing tracking!) at: http://emg-zine.com/sponsors.php

    Additionally, and on a similar topic, Torn World is seeking an advertising intern! It's an unpaid position, but will get you subscription access to all the stories and artwork, as well as earn you karma perks! http://www.tornworld.net/staff.php
