Teens Vote on Plot Developments for New Novels
Seven weeks into the new launch, Fiction Express has 500 members, "and the numbers are growing daily," says Durman. It also has 482 Twitter followers, and 129 Facebook fans. "We are thrilled with the success we have had so far and the response we have received from teens and young adults," Durman adds.
Do authors mind the time crunch of writing each chapter in four days? So far, response from authors has been positive. "Fiction Express is by far and away the most exciting thing I've ever done career-wise!" said Alex Woolf, Fiction Express author.
Fiction Express holds either all rights or an option on all the rights for each of its titles. But, says Durman, "We are interested in talking to mainstream publishers about exploiting both the print and e-book rights (which are separate from the serialised e-book rights)."
