Royal Road is the best place for web fiction for both authors and readers alike. Thanks to Royal Road, I managed to become a full time author even while in University.

Royal Road not only provided a ton of entertainment, but a passion for gamelit that somehow manifested in my own writing and now full time job. From lurker to author, this site and its stories have meant a lot to me and I'm excited to be along for the ride.

Publishing on Royal Road has allowed me to escape the cruel corporate world where pants-wearing is mandatory to now embrace my hermit lifestyle that does not require pants.
