BigWorldNetwork.com announced a fundamental change to their literary entertainment network, removing their previous subscription model and providing all website content for FREE. BWN believes this will be beneficial for everyone, including former subscribers, as they can now enjoy the FREE content or choose to support BWN with a monthly payment and receive perks specific to their funding level, such as free eBooks, audiobooks, and paperbacks each month.
“Other companies with similar models to BWN are seeing great results with crowd funding over traditional subscription services,” said BigWorldNetwork.com Founder and CEO, Jim McGovern. “There is a strong support for the arts that is encouraged with modern crowd funding that didn’t used to exist, and Patreon has that at the forefront. People feel a part of something, and we will be engaging our patrons on a much more personal level.”
With the change to a FREE site, BWN also announced the week-long launch of their 2014 Spring Season of serialized fiction and nonfiction eSeries, available in written and audio format with weekly episodes, including new Fantasy/Action series Kai’s Inquisition by Darkling Drake author Tawn Krakowski.
BigWorldNetwork.com is accepting Series submissions, Miniseries, and Holiday Specials for future seasons.
Founded in May 2013 and based in San Francisco, California, Patreon was created to enable fans to support and engage with the artists and creators they love. Empowering a new generation of creators, Patreon is bringing patronage back to the 21st century.
