HiveMind exists to assist creators in developing, publishing, marketing, and distributing their work.
We do this by focusing our experience and services on your specific needs. It can help a lot in the creative process to have accountability. When you become a Creator with us HiveMind takes an active involvement in your creative workflow and helps you develop the ideal plan to achieve your goals. Whether it is the story you’ve had with you for 20 years, or the completed manuscript you just don’t know what to do with – we’ve got you covered.
HiveMind provides Creators with all the necessary intellectual property, copyright, and trademark considerations concerned with facilitating a project towards publication. We work with Creators to design a specific plan for both the project and on-going distribution after its completion. We believe that there are too many good stories out there that get lost in the rigid model of traditional media, and we’re here to help empower you beyond this inflexibility. We work closely with our Creators to enhance their strengths and supplement their weaknesses.
We provide a range of avenues for Creators to secure funding in order to accelerate their Projects.
HiveMind treats each project equally.
We aim to provide Creators with ways to becomes more financially independent so they can complete their creative pursuits. As a Creator you’ll be able to attract your own following of Patrons. Our Active Patron package allows users to contribute regular amounts to a Creator and our Solitude Patron accommodates a one-off donation to a Creator.
HiveMind also offers Creators access to their own marketplace where they can sell a range of products to fund their creative projects.
HiveMind has adapted a model that rewards Creators with a majority percentage royalty for all of their work.
Traditionally, creators are accessing 10-15% of the associated revenue for their work – and this has to change. The long-term model of HiveMind is to award at least 60% royalties to the Creator, once all associated production fees are satisfied.
Our Accrued Fees model lets Creators who are still establishing and unable to satisfy costs upfront engage with the services of HiveMind. These Accrued fees are split into two categories, Service Fees, and Charge Fees. Service Fees include anything that HiveMind will have to do in order to get your project to production (i.e. development consultation, proof-reading, reading group testing, editing, typesetting, cover design, ISBN registration). Charge Fees include anything that is outside of the services of HiveMind (i.e. a run of print copies of your work, external artwork clearances, venue hire, material purchase). HiveMind will cover the necessary expense and accrue the fee on your account. Please be assured that no accrued fee will ever be added to your account without your written confirmation.
If a Creator has accrued fees associated with a project, 100% of the royalties will go towards satisfying that amount. Then, once the amount is fulfilled, the Creator will receive at least 60% of all royalties associated with their project.
This model allows HiveMind to provide its services and experience to those who need it, still be true in its aim of ensuring a majority return to its Creators, and facilitate a platform for economic independence for future work.
