    1. Re: How to market shorter works

      I have similar concerns. I think "Short" is viewed with undue skepticism on RR, talking around to folks. My Trials of the Lion is a collection of shorts from across a character's life, chronicling (...)


    2. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      On the topic of Zombie Apocalypse, I recommend watching the South Korean movie "Zombie for Sale".  It approaches the genre from a fascinatingly different perspective; it's mostly a comedy film, but it (...)


    3. Re: How to market shorter works

      Research I've done short stories or stories that are between 45-70 thousand words sell for 99cents at most 2 dollars as not many people want to invest the time or money to read a short story if there (...)

    5. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      My plan is for the environment to be zombie apocalypse haha it's my niche, and I feel like I thrive when writing horror, especially apocalyptic, specifically zombies, mostly because I'm so passionate (...)


    6. Re: When it comes to review swaps, how do you handle short stories/novelettes?

      Actually, according to the FAQ's, completed short stories of less than 10000 words are eligible for review swaps.   Both users must read at least 10,000 words (approximately 36 pages) of the other (...)


    7. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      Just have fun and write what you want to write. If you ultimately don't care about your story, none of us will. If you love it, others will too. I always care about my stories and wouldn't write it (...)


    8. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      LitRPG is actually a pretty broad genre, I would recommend narrowing down first, then you could get more specific recommendations and advice.  Unless you don't know even roughly what you want to write (...)


    9. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      When I started writing LitRPG, I was very focused on the numbers, statistics, skills, items, etc. And unfortunately, I still am- relatively- now. My biggest piece of advice to you in writing LitRPG would (...)


    10. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      It really depends on what your objective is.  Kind of random thoughts as they came to me, in no particular order or structure: I picked up the genre to write in because it is faster to set up than (...)


    11. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      y easy to just mess up the numbers. It's not about the numbers, most of the time you can get away with those. It's about stuff like the: super, ultra, giga secret class that only one person can obtain (...)


    12. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      Don't over do the numbers.  I've made one that I actually like and I enjoy it, but the numbers game can be tricky if you haven't put the concept down right. Cause I have characters that use skills (...)


    13. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      Funny, I was gonna suggest the opposite: Don't copy games.  :DrakanLaugh: Also, if the game is actually a game, as opposed to a game-like world, please, don't go the way TKA and LMS did and make it (...)

    15. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      LitRPG can get as complex with the math as you want to, but.. you also don't have to do that. It's perfectly fine to just make a really casual system, like Skyrim or something, where there are only three (...)


    16. Re: When it comes to review swaps, how do you handle short stories/novelettes?

      RR has a rule about needing to read at least 10k words before reviewing (at least that's what it was last time I checked. Correct me if I'm wrong). The problem is, I publish short stories. People already (...)


    17. Re: Calling litRPG Writers/Readers

      I'd like to break into this genre but haven't any experience, and I only want to do the genre justice. What's your main advice for someone writing litRPG? Have any recommendations for a good litRPG (...)


    18. Re: How to market shorter works

      Hello! When it comes to serial platforms, I only publish my shorter works; however, it has always been difficult drawing readers in for such stories because they prefer longer works they can sink their (...)


    19. Re: Are your books on Goodreads?

      I'm self-publishing this August and plan to use GoodReads for that, but I've never thought about using it for my web serials. I never thought you'd actually be able to do that, tbh.


    20. Re: [10.8k words] Post-Apocalyptic Lesbian Romance Novelette

      I'm glad this exists. Though, you should set the story from Hiatus to Complete so that more people can find it! This is very strange because I had already set the status to complete when I had finished (...)
