The Virginia Creeper’s House of Horror

Every so often I get a comment on one of my posts that leads me to an interesting and link-worthy website.  Such is The Virginia Creeper’s House of Horror.  This website is hosted by Laura Wright, a “multi-published author” according to her bio.  Now I have not read anything by Laura–yet–but her websites are definitely worth frequent visits.  You will find free downloads of fiction and articles on horror writing.  Be forewarned, however:  some of the links are not yet live and navigation among the websites is a little awkward.  Patience, patience.  All good websites have to start somewhere.

Wovel-ly

I’m sure by now that you’ve all heard the story of the “wovel” on NPR.  (If not, you can read about it here.)  The wovel is a web novel, a deceptively simple idea of serializing a novel on the web.  This one has a twist that will surely create a horde of wovelites–at the end of each installment, the reader gets to vote on what happens next in the story.  Victoria Blake, former editor of Dark Horse Comics, started this upstart of a publishing venture,  actually posting not just a free serialized novel in which readers can direct the turn of events, but also posting other FREE writing.   Yes, go to Underland and see for yourself.  The wovel, Firstworld, is being written by Jemiah Jefferson, the author of a series of vampire novels including Wounds and Fiend.  No, she is not a widely published author (like Stephenie Meyer, for example), but I think we should keep our eye on her.  And drink up all the free prose available at Underland.  Some might scoff at the idea of giving away art for free, but what better way to attract an audience?
