Have you always had a story you wanted to tell but you weren’t sure where to put it? Our forums provide a way to publish your story to our site and become an Author at Abyssal Books! There are a few levels of “authorship” that you can come on board with. As a forum-level author, you have complete control over your work. If you are satisfied with it, you can either ask a site operator to have it officially published to the main page provided it fits with the requirements (It must be readable), or, of course, while still at the level of forum-author, you may save your work, delete it at your own free will, and publish it with Amazon or mainstream publishers so that you can actually make money off of your work later on.
As a main publisher of Abyssal Books, you may still do the same. The difference is that you may have to wait for changes to your content to be processed if you wish to adjust or delete your work. The upside to being a main Abyssal Books author is that you get your own section to the site where your work is displayed and you get greater coverage. You may put in a request to delete your work from our pages at any time but, with delays.
Our eventual goal is to have the ability to have the business license to publish and sell independent work but until that time, we will be happy to provide advertisement for your work whether it be hosted here for free, or if you have stories on Amazon. As an author, we want to help you sell, even if we aren’t the ones making money! This is all for you, the Author, and for you, the reader!
We want people to see our work and provide readership. We want you to enjoy our stories and if you’re an author, we also want you to have a place to be seen! Most of all, have a good time!
