I interviewed the manager of a young DC-area singer-songwriter named Chelsea Lee today, and he was telling me how he got her stuff on iTunes via TuneCore. (There’s also CD Baby, “a little online record store” that cuts out the middleman.) Artists pay a small fee up front but keep all the royalties and the rights. That got me wondering: Why not TuneCore for writers? We could call it ProseCore, maybe, or FictionWorks. Upload a short story and see your readership grow!
What do you think? Could it work?
