Hello! It's nice to have a forum topic here to be able to communicate questions regarding premium pitches!
I have a few questions that haven't been answered, I don't think.
I noticed you said that you work with both exclusive and non-exclusive contracts. I had plans to ultimately release a print edition of my work, and Tapas is one of the ways I plan on getting word out about that. Would I be allowed to advertise this external project in the story? I ask because I have heard from premium authors that they "turn over" their chapters, and then they don't have any control after that, which is a bit... worrisome to me. Does this mean I would not be able to create an ad, as I can on free to read? Would I be able to edit/update authors comments to direct to physical prints?
Again, on the "hand off the chapters" aspect: I tend to be more careful with my use of whitespace, and I've found ways to modify the Tapas code in order to get the "look" and presentation that I'd like for my work, including changing text alignment. I think, my main question, is that If a story is accepted, what control does the author have over what is presented to the audience? Beyond in-episode issues, do we have any say in cover art, for instance?
I guess I would like to know what the process is once something is accepted as premium. If it is handed to an editor, is it then given back to me to get a say, or do I have to live with someone else's final decision?
