Fiction Express

Fiction Express is a great new website which will be launching on the 6th May. As their subtitle says, Fiction Express is interactive e-Fiction where you control the plot!

• Gripping e-fiction written chapter by chapter in real time
• Online voting determines the course of the plot
Fiction Express will have high quality fiction targeted specifically at tweens and teens. It holds readers' interest with a gripping twist. At the end of each weekly episode, readers are given options and can vote to decide what happens next in the plot. With episodes released every Friday at 3:30pm, readers will have until 10am the following Monday to vote. A challenging but exciting prospect for authors, they'll write each new chapter in real time according to the most popular reader choice.
The list is launched with four titles:
Diary of a Mall Girl by Luisa Plaja (Split by a Kiss and Extreme Kissing - also author of the Chicklish fiction site)
The Soterion Mission by Stewart Ross (Timewarp Trials and What if the Bomb Goes Off?)
Soul Shadows by Alex Woolf (The Chronosphere)
The Last Symbol by Rebecca Morton
They sound amazing :)  Each e-book will be published in 11 weekly episodes. The first is available for free, and the subsequent episodes sell from as little as 59p.

Fiction Express also gives readers the opportunity to submit their own ideas for the plot, and there will be competitions for readers to become a part of the story itself.

You can see the website HERE.

  5. I am so happy to have come across this. I myself am working on a very similar literary experiment for adults. I knew someone else out there was working on the same kind of thing!
