Hi everyone! My name is Dalton K Reed, and I've put my fantasy fiction writing online at www.allthingsimpossible.com .
I've always loved reading and writing, and I just couldn't deal with the traditional publisher hassle, so I turned to the internet.
My first novel does have a few typos in it (line editors would be so nice), so right now, I'm working on repairing those. I'm releasing the second novel a chapter a week.
I'm happy to meet everyone here - other writers, yay! And, if anyone would like to exchange links with me, just let me know. Thanks!
This seems like a cool idea. Someone gets a moleskin journal and we all possibly write a continuous story or perhaps our own little story or whatever based on the theme we get. We mail it out with our links to our respective stories/blogs and we get a web-fiction/dead paper story that is on display in the Brooklyn Art Library. Just a thought.
All right, now, some of you would have received this letter already, and some will be getting it over the next few days (there's a lot of stories out there, and I'm not a robot...unfortunately. ).
Early next year, Wibbly will start producing merchandise and selling it through our site, and we want to offer our services to the the web serial community. You may have considered, or even be using services such as Cafepress or Zazzle, but find the costs and low payouts to you troubling. I can assure you our prices will be more than competitive and have outlined the differences below.
This story is at the same site as Black Mask & Pale Rider, and contains both Shani and Pania, the two main characters of BM&PR. This is written by my co-blogger, Zodi Mitchell.
Have we, as a group, developed an etiquette for quoting positive reviews of our work? It's not unusual for pen and paper books to have quotes from reviewers on the back, or to point out the author is a NYTimes bestseller on the cover.
If you've got great reviews and want to give potential readers a chance to see them, what's the format?
A separate page "See what people are saying about [INSERT TITLE/NAME]"?
Is it kosher to quote from the works of reviewers, be they on WFG, Efictionbookclub, or elsewhere?
I reposted guidelines and a brief description of the #weblit-tle town project on my site, giving a deadline of December 18th. I initially listed December 13th, but that was mostly to frighten MCM. This would be a good place to chirp up if you have any questions or concerns, or just to leave a progress update. I appreciate the time you are taking if you are participating!
Once your recordings are in, I plan to archive them on Internet Archive as CC-NC by attribution, at which point we can link from our sites to promote the project. Hopefully this gets our word out.
Peacock King's had a user points system in place for awhile as an incentive to interact. It's detailed right here: http://peacock-king.infernalshenanigans.com/node/91 (We call 'em coffee beans because I liked having a unique 'currency' for PK.)
Frankly, it isn't working very well, and I'm trying to think of the myriad reasons why that could be. By not working well, I mean that people rarely redeem points. They also don't go out of their way to get them very often, so by this point I'm going to guess that Peacock King's readers are not excited about Coffee Beans.
This post comes from a conversation on twitter with Meilin. As an avid promoter machine I argue that every story should have a decent about-page, and at least a short blurb explaining what the story is about.
Why isn't the first chapter enough promotion wise you ask?
Because I still believe the leap people have to take to start reading online fiction is big. We already how awesome it is, but most people don't.
Hi everyone. Found this site through M. Jones site, 314 Crescent Manor. I've got my own serial series on the go, and have found that Fantasy/Western has more authors than I originally thought (with quite a few online series that I'm currently reading).
To the point, my own series is in full swing and just thought I'd share it here. It's called the Adventures of Black Mask & Pale Rider.
This is really not very urgent.
However I have some fairly bad eyesight, and I can never read the posted on thing. And then I have to go and make everything big just to read that.
However, I also find it very confusing that the Joined on xxx is bigger than the Posted on xxx, because when you go looking for a date it's the first day you notice.
So I'm thinking that the posted on should be closer to the post, instead of above the poster box.
Did that make sense?
As I said, not very important, but it has been annoying me for a while.
Lots of Love
