Summer 2021 Coming Soon

Standard

ONLINE COURSE!

MERCH!


More details coming next week about the course, and more details over the coming weeks about a new online store.


[Video Description: It’s me, Nila, facing front, seen from chest up, in front of a plain washboard door. I speak to camera and say, “Hi, it’s Nila. I’m just dropping in to make a quick announcement about two exciting new initiatives that I’ll be launching for Storyfeather over the summer. One of them is an online course. And the other one is an online store. The course is coming first, so I’ll be back next week with more details about that. And in the meantime, I hope that everybody has a safe and fun holiday. And I will see you soon.” The word “Initiatives!” flies in from my right as I say it. The words “Online Course” and “Online Store” float up and away as I announce them.]

Just a note for anyone who may have noticed, I did have an online store previously through Zazzle. It’s technically still open, but I stopped working on it back in 2015. I’ve removed the link for now, and I’ll address it further when I return with more details about the new store.

Portals and Trailers Are Here

Standard

Hello,

First, thank you for your interest in Storyfeather!

I’m interrupting the regularly scheduled storytelling to present a couple new Pages I’ve just added, to help navigate through the (perhaps daunting) waves of stories crashing all around us.

The Portals page and the Trailers page will present more information about the stories, both new and old.

You can find the links at the top of this post, and on the main menu (to the left on desktop view and at the top of the page on mobile view).

PORTALS

You’ll find buttons that link to the latest podcast episode and the latest short story. Coming soon, you’ll also find links to some combination of the following:

  • Older short stories and podcast episodes showcasing a specific theme (a holiday, a season, a profession, most popular, least popular, my faves, etc.)
  • Random Button results—I’ll click the Random button, see where it leads me, and talk about that story or page
  • About and other

I’ll be adding an update to my About page soon, and have a few plans for…other stuff (she said, cryptically).

TRAILERS
You’ll find trailers of the most recent short stories and podcast episodes. The trailers for the short stories will reveal the genre and tagline. In future, I may add quotes from the story. The trailers for the podcast episodes will include an audio excerpt from the episode set against the episode art. And many of the trailers will include animations, transitions, or other minor visual effects.

Why am I making two different pages, instead of putting all of this onto one page?

The Portals page will serve as a landing page for people who find me from other places on the internet where I’ll be posting my trailers.

For some strange reason, I’ve only been posting trailers on Instagram, instead of posting them here first. Well, partly it’s because I didn’t know how or where to put the trailers on my site until now. I’m also trying out embedding a podcast player at the bottom of both Pages, which will allow visitors to listen to the three most recent episodes directly from the Page.

So, I invite you to take a look at the Portals and Trailers pages. And please let me know what you think.

You can comment below, DM me on IG at @storyfeather or reach out to me through email at nila@storyfeather.com.

Thanks!
Nila
