Hi,

perhaps I'm too dense and have missed it but is there any way to take out a sub for Ethereal Tales rather than buying individual issues?

If not then that is my 'Thought and Suggestion'.

Hope you all doing well.

You are correct in noting that there is no option for subscribing. I have thought about it and at first I resisted as I didn't want to commit myself to selling something in advance for a year when I wasn't sure how well the zine would take off.
I guess now that we are up to the second anniversary I should think about it again. The only trouble is that I wouldn't be able to offer a large discount for a subscription, perhaps 50p of each issue...making a yearly subscription £12.00 (£2.00 per issue plus £1 P&P each issue). Do you think that is a good enough deal? I could also offer a package on back issues...perhaps any 4 back issues at £2.00 each plus combined P&P...that way people could pick up any they have missed for a lesser price.
Let me know your thoughts, and if you think it is good enough to entice you I will happily invoice you the extra bit to upgrade your purchase of Issue Nine to a subscription if you like (thanks for your support :) ).

Hi,

that sounds great. I wasn't really angling for a discount it was just the convenience thing really. I'm quite happy to do it from whenever you set it up.

All the best

Gary

Well, I think anyone who is willing to pay money up front and help support the zine deserves whatever little discount I can give them.
Overseas buyers will have to pay more postage I'm afraid as I can't afford to subsidise their mailing costs.
I will see about setting it up as an option on the shop so that it will be in place for the next issue if you are not bothered about making it from this issue. If however you do want it to start at this issue let me know and I will send you a paypal money request for the additional costs so that you don't have to think about the next three issues...just sit back and wait for them to arrive... ;)

Hi,

that's fine. Just do it from the next issue and I'll subscribe when the link goes up like everyone else.

Thanks for that. Hope you get your transportation sorted out soon.

Cheers

Gary
