Introducing Steem Fiction - The Collaborative Writing Group that Publishes on Amazon.comsteemCreated with Sketch.

in steem •  5 months ago 

A couple of months ago I had an idea.

What if a select group of fiction writers on the Steem blockchain were to publish a book together on Amazon.com?

That dream came to fruition.

We've assembled a group of some of the best fiction writers on Steem with intention of writing a book every quarter using a different genre.

The first genre was Supernatural.

Guess what?

That book is already completed!

I'm just finishing the editing process and getting it ready for publication.

I'm hoping to have this book out the door and available for purchase on Amazon.com in just a few hours.

We are truly blessed to have such an amazing writing group.

The current members are:

@janenightshade
@improv
@felt.buzz
@jeezzle
@manoldonchev
@stinawog
@giantbear
@blueeyes8960

@ericvancewalton and @arbitrarykitten are on the team, but they are not going to be involved with this first book.

This book has some truly amazing stories.

We have thrillers, chillers, tearjerkers, and stories that will make you smile.

It's going to be on Amazon with the word STEEM all over it. We are promoting the blockchain in a way that's never been done before.

This account will be used to develop our material.

You can expect teasers, excerpts, and various bits showcasing our upcoming work.

We will also publish micro fiction that is unrelated to the book. A small taste of our writer's talents.

All proceeds from the sale of the books will go to the individual authors. By supporting the books we create, you are supporting the authors who spend all of their time writing for the blockchain.

I hope you will check our upcoming book out.

If you are interested in joining Steem Fiction, drop me a line.

I'm @jeezzle and this is @steemfiction

Look forward to our upcoming book!

Hey do you need a collaborating editor with experience writing plays and books? @ me. @manoldonchev, @blueeyes8960 -- no love for ol' @vdux?

I appreciate the offer, but I have already hired a professional editor. You're certainly welcome to work on the book with us though.

I'm down. Available for collab after 2 am UTC. You know where to find me!

I'm not sure where to find you. However you can find me at https://discord.gg/kgf6XG

Please send a link to some of your work @jeezzle

We love ol' @vdux! The project continues, so, yeah, contact @jeezzle and see what happens ;)

I'm very excited to be a part of this endeavor. Kudos to @jeezzle to coming up with idea and seeing it to completion. I think it must have like herding cats to get us all on the page and bringing all our stories to completion.

It's a lot of fun, but this end part was a lot harder than I thought. We're going out to come up with a set of rules that everyone follows when it comes to how we write the stories. I really liked your story.

This has been a very fulfilling process. Steem has been a huge part of my life for the past couple of years, including, via @freewritehouse, getting me into a habit of writing every day (which is what made this project merely whelming and not overwhelming), and I'm proud to be included in the anthology.

It has been fulfilling.... but the end part was definitely overwhelming. Of course, now that I've completed the book I'll find it easier next time.

Make sure you let us know as soon as it's available to purchase! I'm excited to tell everyone!

Excellent.

Highly rEsteemed!

Such a pleasure working with serious And creative people!

Very happy to be a part of this project. It is really nice to work with people I already know from other communities like @freewritehouse and @steemitbloggers as well as some talented writers I didn't know before! And I have produced a story I was happy with and learned a few things about what I need to look out for when editing my stories too.

Now let's get this account noticed!

I'm going to make Twitter and Instagram accounts for it as well. Tomorrow I'll get some other things taken care of too....
