I am a writer, who is currently writing on a platform that is not conducive to revenue, and easy to navigate for my readers. I'm looking to have an app built, similar to that of Wattpad or Inkitt, where I can put all the chapters of one book in a part and all the chapters of another book in a part, and so on. I am currently using Patreon and it does not have the functionality. I am on Wattpad and I enjoy the way the setup there is, however, I write mature adult content and they have announced that they will be going through and getting rid of that in the coming months. Having my own app that my readers can download would be extremely helpful.
I'm looking to be able to charge a monthly subscription fee within that app, as well as monetize it with ads, and earn ad revenue for those who don't want to pay the subscription fee. Below, I will give a list of the items I'm looking for the app to be able to do.
- A cover option to add the book cover ( the reader will be able to tap on this and access the book)
- Chapter integration (I would like to be able to add each chapter separately under the book cover it belongs to and have a table of contents to the side or along the bottom.
- A library option where the reader can save the book to a reading list within the app.
- The ability to charge a subscription fee and add ads for monetization for those who do not want to pay the subscription fee.
- An option for them to comment on each chapter. Preferably place in-line comments(see attached photo for example), but that isn't necessarily a must-have as long as there is a comment section.
- If it is possible, I would like for it to notify those that have the app or have added a particular book to their library that the book has been updated.
- A message feature for them to message me privately if need be.
- A community discussion board, that can also serve as an announcement board.
- If a chat option can be added, that would be nice, but it isn't entirely necessary in the beginning.
- There should be absolutely NO WAY for the reader to download any of the books/chapters from the app.
I know that it's quite a bit, but I'm looking for bids and general honesty on whether what I'm looking for can be accomplished.
Thank you so much in advance for your time.
