“Jury Selection” going to JukePop

Ace artist and graphic designer, Ian Webster of Hazard-County Illustration, has taken one of Bill Draheim‘s photographic works and redone it as the cover for my speculative fiction piece “Jury Selection.”

Cover Varieties Final

The intention was to release the story on JukePop, a curator-site for serialized fiction, in order to see what effect it may have and what the benefits might be–if any.

The first part of the process has been completed: Acceptance. As of this morning, I have submitted the story.

The Terms and Agreements contained this monster clause, which means I have granted JukePop:

“irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, publish, publicly perform, publicly display, and commercialize (in multiple forms) on the Website (including on JukePop mobile apps) the applicable Content.”

Zoiks! Well, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” as the old saying goes. JukePop itself claims no ownership of the work, and one of its selling points is that fact that writers have gone on to put their collections in eBook form that is then sold to an already established fan base.

Here is a link to the story on JukePop and here is a link to an article helping readers figure out how to navigate and negotiate this new (dare I say: revolutionary) format for fiction.

Thanks in advance for the support!

      Hi Bill. Thanks for checking it out! This is the first time using the service. Let me tool around a bit and see what can be done. Thanks again for allowing me the use of your art work!
