WebFiction is more than a fad. It’s more than the last resort for the unemployed, can’t-get-a-break, lying-drunk-under-a-pile-of-unpublished-manuscripts writer.
WebFiction is a literary movement in its own right. And it’s a quirky and diverse subculture, that’s really just a hell of a lot of fun.
Cheapass Fiction is a site dedicated to exploring, analyzing and encouraging the free and dirt-cheap fiction available on the web and the cultural movement it expresses.
Stories and novels on the internet that aren’t published through recognized commercial companies are often seen as cheap and worthless. WebFiction isn’t even allowed in the gutter of the literary scene. It’s the bad neighborhood down the street that the gutter runs into.
Well, we happen to like the neighborhood. We say “Hell yeah!” to cheap fiction. We say it may not be worth $14.99 or $9.99 or even $5.99, but entertainment doesn’t need to have a price tag. And when it does, we’re likely to pass it by and go hang out on the porch steps of our crappy neighborhood for kicks.
In the world outside of 1s and 0s, I’m… well, it’s not important. I don’t spend much time there anyway. There, I’m human. Female of my species. 20 something. Easily frightened by things with sharp beaks, things with big teeth, and Australia.
Here, I’m a writer.
I write Free–with–a–capital–F fiction. Public Domain/CC0/Do-whatever-the-hell-you-want-with-it fiction, because… fuck copyright. Why? My entire life I dreamed about telling people stories. I did not dream about telling people stories that they could never tell to anyone else ever because they didn’t have the right.
I am also a TUEBLover.
Searches for The Ultimate E-Book Library tend to point here. This is not because I run TUEBL. This is not because I have anything technical or official to do with TUEBL. I’m just a blogger. And I’m one of the few covering TUEBL news. I fucking love libraries, and if standing in as the totally-official-not-really blogger of TUEBL news is the best way that I can help out our library, then that’s what I’ll do.
