What is WebFiction?
It’s fiction on the web, genius.
Really it’s a big category. We’ve pared it down to suit the needs of the cheap ass reader.
WebFiction for the cheap ass is not:
1. Published by a company:
Of course, some webfic writers make up their own company to sound more legit. This is okay. At heart, these are still cheap ass writers who bring us stories without the benefit of an editing, marketing and coffee-bringing staff. By the way, vanity publishers are companies. So are ebook publishers. That’s okay, but they’ve already got their own thing.
So how do we know that books come from a company and what books come from a “company?” We can tell. Really. We can tell.
2. Normally priced.
Most writers eat. Therefore, most writers like to have money to exchange for food in the offline world. This is okay. Great in fact. We like food, too. But there are already numerous sources for $9.99, $14.99, $19.99 books. They’re called bookstores.
Books for $.99 or $1.99 may be read by the cheap asses here, but it depends on how soon our rent is due.
Of course, some web writers will publish in many forms including self/vanity published physical books and ebooks that may cost more than coffee money-or at least more like Starbucks than Mc Donald’s coffee money. We don’t mind. As long as there is a cheap ass webversion, we’ll read it.
