Re: S Light Novel and Paywall Announcement

Dear readers, we have an important announcement to make.

With the release of chapter 30, the first volume of Re: Survival is complete! Have you enjoyed the story so far? With its completion, we are currently preparing to create the first light novel volume of Re:Survival as an e-book. This e-book version will have further edits, minor changes, and illustrations added, alongside a small message from the author for the readers.

We appreciate the love and support you have shown for Re:Survival. If there are any scenes you would like to see illustrated within the first volume, please leave a comment for us in #light-novel-artwork on our discord server!

With that said, we would like to let you know the unfortunate news that Re:Survival will no longer be free to read beyond chapter 29. This is because our contract makes it difficult for us to maintain free readership with the e-book in development.

However, do not lose all hope! The latest chapters will still be available to read for free. They will only be locked 3 days after release. Also, you can still access the chapters by subscribing to our Patreon for $2 per month. Your support through Patreon helps not only us, but the Korean authors who have worked hard to create these stories.

In the future, as our library expands, we’ll have a variety of freemium novels and premium novels. Freemium novels will be free to read until the very end. Premium novels will be free to read up to the first volume, and then readers will have to pay to read further ahead. Some premium novels will have the latest chapters available to read for free before being after a certain amount of time has passed, depending on the contract with the publishers.

While we do not want to paywall our content like this, Korean authors feel more assured to have a paywall system set in stone similar to the ones on Munpia / Kakao / Naver. To officially license and work on these novels, we agreed to implement a reasonable system in return. Please let us know what you think about this system in the comments below.

Lastly but not least, we would like to announce that we will be licensing many more novels in 2020. While we cannot disclose what novels we’ll be licensing, we’re excited to share this news. Try taking a guess on what novels will be returning in 2020.
