Why is Deadman’s Tome asking for money:
Deadman’s Tome is raising money for advertising and marketing so that we can extend the outreach of the content, and share the work of both talented newcomers as well as award-winning writers to a greater audience. The writers earn based on the number of views, likes, and comments, and because of that every dollar spent towards advertising, marketing, and promotion supports them tremendously.
How is the money going to be used:
Deadman’s Tome will use the money to cover advertising, marketing, and promotional expenses. Because of your help and your generous support, Deadman’s Tome will reach out to horror fans and readers through various horror sites, blogs, podcasts, and more. A portion of funds would pay the authors. While another portion would help in promoting writing contests and various means to promote engagement.
Why this matters:
By supporting Deadman’s Tome, you support independent horror writers, and allow for the growing horror magazine to do more. I started Deadman’s Tome with a dream of creating a place where stories are shared, where discussion is encouraged, and where writers can receive direct feedback from the readers.
Donate what you can, but if you can’t then help by spreading the message and getting the word out! Supporters can get some pretty cool gifts such as free anthologies, mugs, shirts, and LIMITED EDITION print copy of Book of Horrors I and II!
When you support Deadman’s Tome, you support writers. By supporting the writers, you get access to awesome content such as FREE access to two horror anthologies Book of Horrors I and HORRGASM!
Deadman’s Tome is an online horror zine with a strong focus on delivering dark, gritty, and terrifying horror. Deadman’s Tome strongly encourages community engagement and fosters an environment where readers can react and share the stories they read. In addition, Deadman’s Tome offers writers a unique way to earn revenue from their stories. Instead of offering a fixed rate or a rate based on the number of words, Deadman’s Tome pays authors based on the number of views, likes, and comments received.
Becoming a patron of Deadman’s Tome means helping support the cost of the horror zine, and helping us make it as profitable as possible so that Deadman’s Tome can offer more to the authors and readers by increasing pay rate, helping with advertising and marketing costs, hiring professional voice talent, hiring artists, improving on the site, and to even become a print magazine.
Currently, I put about $30 of my own money towards Deadman’s Tome, but that amount does not offer much for advertising and marketing. And let’s face it, advertising and marketing is not only essential but expensive. I have a number of sites and organizations I plan on working with to place ads to spread awareness of the growing horror zine. However, I need your help in raising the money to make it happen.
