I'm posting in RP because that's where collaborative stories are being written, but this is potentially a little off-topic. (It's also my once-or-twice-a-year fiction promotional announcement. Superhero, fantasy, and science fiction novels: http://bit.ly/sdpbooks for the "gallery." There. Spread the word, as appropriate.) BTW: "Power Struggles" is close to being finished after a four-month break in writing. My mom's death kind of sapped a bit of creative energy out of me for that particular project for a while.
I've commissioned artwork from time to time, like the cover art for my Venture City superhero novels and other smaller pieces. As I'm in the process of setting up a Patreon page, I am wondering if short fiction commissions might be a viable thing. It would certainly be fun as hell for me to do! I do the same sort of thing for corporate training clients all the time, but there are some pretty big differences.
Because the stories about people's personal characters reside in their heads already--with lots of head-canon--is commissioned short story viable as a thing? If so, what should I charge for it to give good value?
Any thoughts, reactions, or suggestions?
