Current product: "psest" (rhymes with "impressed").
psest allows writers to create and, crucially, sell short reading experiences, plus engage in collaborative narrative remixing on larger projects.
The target economic sector is the creative writing industry, which has ballooned over the past three decades, to the point where it's even offered at many high schools. Millions of people are involved in it; it's ripe for disruption.
Our 1st set of customers comprises those in creative writing courses, or with creative writing degrees, or simply who have ambitions as a creative writer. psest's aim is to give them a set of digital tools to create, promote and sell short narrative works. psest makes money through premium subscriptions and by taking a cut of sales.
Our 2nd set is those who want to read what top writers write, but don't have time to pick up a novel.
Please write to request a preview; we haven't put psest in the wild yet.
