What you need to read…


…if you want to understand what is going on in web fiction right now.

This post by Jeph Jacques of QC,
and this post by Lexy Erin of ToMU.

Jacques is a webcomic artist, obviously, but web fiction appears to be following in the footsteps of webcomics.

And, in case you couldn’t translate yourself, AE does it for you, along with a nice dose of her own commentary – and she’s definitely the person to do it. To the best of my knowledge, MeiLin Miranda is the only person besides AE who is making a living writing web fiction. Obviously David Wellington is doing fine, but he has been picked up by a publisher (ditto Corey Doctorow).

It is wise for the web fiction community to look back on the successes of our big sibling, webcomics.

Oh, and also read this article on e-books, via novelr.

    Good info via those links, to be sure. However, I’d just like to post a link to this article by Valerie D’Orazio, as what I think is a much-needed counterpoint. Giving away things for free is a dangerous foundation for a business model. The risk can pay off if you plan well and have a little luck, but we do well to be cognizant of the risks.
