Tuesday schedule to be kept
Chapter 20 will be appearing 4/1/08 at midnight (tonight), no joke. It's done, Chapter 21 is well under way, no ransom. Chapter 21 will appear on Thursday as scheduled.
For now, I'm going to stick with the update schedule, no matter how ADD I get. So that means updates on Tues/Thurs this week and a Saturday update if the target's met.
I'm mulling over a number of options, only one of which I'm committing to right now:
--A paid newsletter that would give you chapters ahead of schedule as they are written (not really thrilled about it but I'm thinkin' about it).
--Advertising target #1: Every x number of readers who send me links to where IHGK is linked on their site (blogrolls, banners, what have you), then I'll release an extra chapter (as opposed to a ransomed chapter).
--Advertising target #2: Every time we get x number of new signups from different IP addresses, I'll release an extra chapter. (I may make some side content available to registered users only, somehow.)
--Advertising target #3: Every time x number of people use a "tell a friend" feature (yet to be implemented) to tell a friend about the site, I'll release an extra chapter.
--Advertising target #4: Every x number of bookmarks at del.icio.us, I'll release an extra chapter.
--Advertising target #5: Every x number of reviews at PagesUnbound.com, I'll release an extra chapter.
--Advertising target #6, and this one I'll commit to right now: When all five advertising slots are filled for a month, I'll do another daily M-Sa update week.
--Advertising target #7: Every x number of people who follow me via twitter, I'll release an extra chapter.
Any other ideas?
