    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.

    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?

    Hello, Pelwarth, This website is very much legit. And, there is no doubt about it. As I am someone who is currently selling her work through this website and got no issues with them. The contract is the most lenient and author friendly that I ever came across. Remember I am not talking about traditionally publishing. I am someone who started writing her story on a website named Wattpad for free and got many followers in just two or three months. I was doing that for fun at that time. But it started the offers from many sites such as Dreame, Webnovel and many others. But not Litnet, so, wait. Remember the sites I am talking about are all which reveals the story in a serialized forms and readers buy coins to read the work of the author. Dreame and webnovel only offers author with 50% or less from all the money earned. Litnet offers you more. Plus, Litnet doesn't ask to own your work unlike dreame and webnovel who wants paperback, audio and many other rights. Your work remains yours in every aspect. You are not losing any rights. I came across Litnet while I was searching for sites that operate like Wattpad and Inkitt and was not looking to sell my work. Posting on my work Litnet was not difficult. You just go to the site and publish your chapters. All I was looking for a site that got me new followers for my insta and facebook page. All of the stories on English Litnet were free at that time except one. And that time was May, 2019. Litnet, let anyone publish their work but do not offers you to sell the work until you fulfill three conditions. You have to earn a certain number of followers. And, have one finished work that will always be available for free to your readers. And there were other conditions too. I got the mail on the day my Litnet profile was meeting all the conditions. And, the moment I was presented the contract it was so much better than all the other contracts I came across so far. So, I did the sure thing. But getting the actual status of commercial author took three months because I am from Pakistan and couldn't set my Payoneer account easily. I started selling my work on the 6th of dec, 2019. Almost after four months I received the offer in the mail. And, enjoying the fruits right now. The team I was in contact with had to bear a bundle of questions from my side but they were patient always.
    One more thing, Litnet has four mirror sites. Each operating in different language. English, Spanish, Ukrainian, and Russian. Make sure that you are on english site. You can change the language with the option given at the very end of the web page. English Litnet is small. And at this this time have only two paid stories. Rest are free on the English site. But other languages mirrors are around for very long time and have more like 100's or more paid stories in each language category and have thousand stories for free from the authors who are trying to get the commercial author status.
    I am always here for any questions.
    Stay blessed,

    Hello, when I got the commercial status on Litnet they didn't ask for my bank details. So, how they pay me? They asked me to make an account on Payoneer-a very famous international way that is mostly used by many freelancers around the world just like paypal. So, the only thing I provided Litnet was the ID of my payoneer account. The bank details and rest I provided to Payoneer while setting up my account.
