Some promo resources for online writing
« on: July 30, 2009, 03:54:54 PM »
Here's a quick list of some places that will list your blog novel.  Hope to see more from others.

--Web Fiction Guide     This seems to be the premiere list and review site for online fiction.   Aiming at being the IMDB or Google Directory of online literature, it's doing a damn good job.   They place your blog novel with a screen shot and there are reviews and ratings, like on amazon.
Only online fiction (no fanfic, erotic, webcomics, or blogs that aren't stories).  They check to make sure your site works on all browsers and do some preliminary reveiws and commentary.
This is a five star resource for anybody trying to create lit online.

--Free Online Novels  This site is very writer-friendly and altruistic...and has a link to add your book to their list.

--Online Novels  Bills as "The #1 Site for Online Novels" which is debatable, but there is a pretty good list of some interesting reads here.  And a link to add your project to their list.  Some additional links are interesting, as well.

--The Definitive Blog Novel List  Well, "definitive" is a big concept--and hard to define--but this is an ambitious list and they invite you to submit links to your book.  For readers, it's a good list of some innovative online writing.

--Free Speculative Fiction Online   This listing is for speculative fiction and is more oriented to readers than to authors trying to get listed.  But give them a shot if you're into SF.

--Google Directory--Online Writing  This is a list of lists, so to speak, and if anybody wants an exhaustive search broken down by categories, here it is.

I'd like to add to your list there, if ya don't mind!   ;D

These places are a little different from the typical directory listing you might find.

The first isn't a site, but a twitter account run by online author Naomi Kramer:  Online Fiction.  This twitter account is automated to tweet links to registered sites, promoting your work to the twitter community for free.  All one has to do is contact Naomi and she'll put the word out.  The catch is, your story has to be free and completely available to readers.  If you're a free online fiction author like me, this is a great service she's doing.

The second is a listing posted on a forum by DustinM, author of the Blog Fiction blog.  Specifically, there's a forum for Blog Fiction and Online Fiction, the distinction being format and style.  You just need to register with the forum to get your link on there, and if your work is active, Dustin will add it to his feed list on his site.
