    Litnet.club

    I'm posting this here to see what anyone may have heard about this. The concept seems simple but I can hardly find anything about them.

    They have a FB page and this page: http://litnet.club/
    The search result for this has a description in what looks like Russian.


    So, I don't know if it's a scam or a serious site. They've asked me for nothing nor have I signed up for anything. The concept is that readers pay a fee to read your book on line as you finish each chapter/section. Didn't see any price structure on the FB page.

    So if the readers pay a fee what do you get?

    Looks like a startup. I dunno about releasing chapters as I write them; I never show my work until it is at least Beta ready.

    On the other hand, I have long theorized of a place where you could write never-ending serials, like the comics at Keenspace...but for writers. Imagine that; books with no end. Serialized literature. Every week a new episode.

    But I dunno if this is the place for that. If anyone tries it, I'd suggest using something you don't mind losing.

    It is not uncommon. One of my writer-friends works like this, on Smashwords. He writes longish chapters and releases those separately. I have purchased two of his books this way and I don't regret it. You have to write a smashing first chapter though, or you lose your readers

    So if someone pays you a fee, it means they will need your bank details? Add that to any sign-up info you provide and there could be a problem.
    Not saying it's a scam but I'm more wary these days.

    @Darren;

    Does your friend write short stories (5k words) or novelettes (circa 10-12h) and list them for sale?
