Not STRICTLY writing-related, but I feel like this is something a bunch of world-building authors might help with...I identify more as a dieselpunk with steampunk leanings. My wife identifies more…Continue

Congratulations, Tony! I'm also looking forward to reading the Dieselpunk Pulp Showcase!

For those of you looking for a retro-1950s adventure with a boy desperately wanting his own robot, I'm going to shamelessly plug my book: ZAK CORBIN: MASTER OF MACHINES, available on Kindle and in print via CreatSpace. And if you're the kind who likes to try before you drive, the first three chapters are also up on WattPad

If you're looking for a new place to read serial fiction, try JukePopSerials.com. I currently have a retro-futuristic serial called The Prince of Trouble on there. Read for free, share and enjoy!

Hi Tony,

How does JukePopSerials work for writers? I registered today and bookshelved four serials (yours included), so that's fun and I'm looking forward to doing some reading. But I poked around to try and get a better sense for the other side of it (I've just finished writing a serial and am int he process of polishing each episode and publishing them on Amazon & B&N). I'm wondering if I should post the first part of my serial on there.

Hey Sophia: I approached submitting to JukePop as I would any outlet for my material. Your work is going on-line, so you may have issues with protecting your work as well as your copyright. If you have questions, contact Jodie Crozer, their editor in chief (editor@jukepopserials.com). When I submitted my serial, JukePop sent me emails regarding the status of the submission and how the process works. As a first-timer, I was paid $50.00 up front. Since then, authors get money if their serials are the top-voted for a specific period. Mine has around 65 votes. Others have thousands, so they're doing quite well. It really depends on the genre and your social media savvy to get people to read and vote (thanks for voting for mine, BTW).

Tony, how long did Jukepop ask for exclusivity? I have some stuff that I considered uploading there. But I have also submitted to the Kindle serial store. Other stuff I have already loaded up on Wattpad. When I inquired the response I got was that upon submission they would inform me of a limited time exclusivity.

Comment by Sophia Martin on March 30, 2013 at 11:03pm

David, there's a Kindle serial store?

Comment by Tony Russo on March 31, 2013 at 8:31am

David:  Sorry to take so long, I had to dig into my emails: here's the verbiage:

We will pay you the rate of 2 cents per word for up to the first 5,000 words of your submission upon THE PRINCE OF TROUBLE's appearance on JukePop in September.  In exchange, you agree not to publish THE PRINCE OF TROUBLE in print or online for six months after it appears on Jukepop.  After that time you are free to publish your work elsewhere.  The rights of authors are important to us, and we take them quite seriously.  You do grant to JukePop the right to publicly display and commercialize the accepted serial start on our website, the right to excerpt, analyze, and index your serial start on Jukepop, as well as to make the work available to reader tips and comments (that’s kind of the whole point of JukePop).  You will then have the option to continue your serial in order to qualify for potential rank-based cash rewards.  JukePop will retain non-exclusive rights to republish, in print or online, any portion of your serial that has appeared on JukePop.

Finally, with your permission, we may preview brief excerpts of
THE PRINCE OF TROUBLE along with your preferred author or penname on JukePop and/or social sites in advance of September in order to generate advance enthusiasm for your work and the upcoming launch.  You will be likewise free to announce your acceptance on social platforms however; wait until 24 hours after sending us your acceptance so we are able to get the word out first .  

Please note that all serials must be original works of authorship.  We don’t knowingly accept or display work that violate copyrights or are contrary to other applicable laws.  JukePop has full discretion to remove or display any submission on our site.
