Next Gen Stories – Connecting Authors and Readers of Children’s Stories
Welcome to the first edition of our blog, The Life and Times of Readers and Writers of Children’s Short Stories. In this edition, we discuss the mission of Next Gen Stories and feature an author on the platform and one of their stories.
Next Gen Stories was launched to create an online marketplace for parents to see the latest children’s short stories from a wide range of authors. Site visitors can preview and download stories, like or comment on the stories, share their comments through social media, and cast a vote for another chapter. When choosing and downloading a story, parents can personalize the stories with their child’s name as one of the characters. In addition, parents can signup for a weekly newsletter that highlights new stories, popular downloads and featured authors. Visitors that sign up for a $36 membership get 3 stories per month.
The mission of Next Gen Stories is to provide a platform for parents with a library of children’s short stories that expands daily and authors with a place to share their short stories for children. Next Gen Stories is the only marketplace designed specifically for children’s short stories. Its intuitive interface and focused offering allows parents to find fresh stories their children will love for as little as 99¢ per story from what will soon become the largest collection of children’s short stories on the web.
Aspiring and established children’s authors can share their stories on Next Gen Stories and develop a following. Anyone who has ever written a story for a child and would like to share it can post a story. Aspiring authors can hone their skills, build a following and even attract a publisher.
Through a simple submission process, authors can submit their text, insert images and designate character names that parents can change before downloading. Authors can share their stories with the world and build an income stream. Next Gen Stories reviews submissions to ensure that they meet our basic guidelines. Once approved, stories are posted to the site for readers to preview and download for as low as 99¢ per story. Revenues are split with the author and royalty payments are distributed monthly.
