|Pimp your stuff here!
||[Apr. 16th, 2007|09:34 pm]
This community is...a bit of an experiment. I've noticed that more than a couple of individuals in the fanfic writing community have or are publishing books with various epublishers (and print publishers for that matter). I...have not gotten there yet. Hopefully, some day I will. Whether or not I'm interested in entangling my fannish identity with my writing identity remains to be seen, but plenty of you are more than happy to leverage your fic readership into paying ebook readership.
I thought, why not have a centralized place to do that?
To that end, I've created the LJEbooks community. The idea is, you join, you pimp your stuff, and folks who perhaps have enjoyed your fanfic writing can be like, "Oh, it's totally worth $1.95 or $5.99 or whatever to enjoy so-and-so's original fiction." Click. Pay. Yay!
So, ground rules...
Please only pimp your own stuff, or stuff from people who you know are okay with the linking of LJ identity w/ ebook writing identity.
Excerpts welcome, but BEHIND LJ-CUTS PLEASE.
Please let us know the name of the epublisher, the title, your LJ name, the name you're writing under and a little about your story (like genre, length, brief summary, pub date, etc)
We'd very much like links to your fanfic as well. Chances are, if I like the way you write Spuffy or McShep or what have you, I'm more likely to drop a little cash on your ebook, so please go ahead and pimp a couple of your fanfic stories as well, if you're so inclined.
Pimp one title at a time, please, for archiving purposes. If you have a bunch of older titles, we'd love to have you pimp them all, but please try to spread them out and not pimp them all at one time.
ETA: We love print too!
The rest...we'll make up as we go, but basically, don't go crazy with the spammage, and don't link fannish and prowriter identities for people unless you're sure they're okay with it, and we should be all good! Enjoy. :)
