A Yuletide Reader Challenge!
Let's close out the year with good cheer, good stories, and a little magic.
It’s a crisp, clear, cold day in Brooklyn, and I can’t help but think about everything we’ve accomplished this year.
Since we launched this project in July, we’ve hit some key milestones:
We published twelve short stories. (It’ll be a baker’s dozen by year’s end!)
We published scores of flash fiction Secrets and Lore entries.
We’ve built an incredible and growing team of writers and artists.
We’ve paid all of our writers and artists from Day One.
We launched a store!
We’ve connected with an incredible community of readers. We love you all and we love hearing from you!
BUT! As we approach the end of the year, we need your help.
We need FIVE new paid subscribers by the end of the year to hit our subscription goal for 2022.
Please consider upgrading today and helping us meet this important goal!
We’d love to ring in the new year having achieved all of our goals for launching this project, but it’s up to our readers to help us reach this final one.
As a token of our gratitude, each person who upgrades to a paid subscription at any level between now and midnight Pacific Time on New Year’s Eve will get our 25% holiday discount and receive a FREE Distant Reaches coffee mug!
The best part? New subscribers between now and midnight (Pacific Time) on New Year’s Eve will receive a special shout-out in our first lore post of the year! (Just drop us a line at email@example.com with your preferred name when you upgrade! Don’t forget to let us know which mug color you want.)
Remember, you can also give Distant Reaches subscriptions as a gift, and the recipient (or you) will receive a free mug as well!
What do you say, dear readers? Can you help us achieve our final goal of 2022?
We’re thankful for all of your support so far, and we’re excited about all of the new things we’ll be able to do with your help going forward. In the new year, we’ll be launching some new features (with your help):
A quarterly print magazine! Yes, this is awesome, but it’s going to take a lot to get it off the ground.
A new website with more art. We’re getting a glow-up!
Even more incredible stories and lore from the Distant Reaches.
Lastly, we want to wish you all a happy and joyful holiday, however you celebrate. We hope you keep an eye out for our special Christmas edition, December 25th, by the one and only Robert Frankel.
It’ll fill you with warmth and the holiday spirit — or at least terror and disgust. We hope you enjoy!
Just four more to go now!
