SHORT STORIES ON THE GO
WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE SHORT STORIES EASIER TO ACCESS
Ever want to just read a quick short story? Something that's not the daily dredge that overwhelms us these days? Our newsfeeds, Facebook, and Twitter can be pretty depressing so let's bring a little brightness and fiction storytelling back into our lives.
In truth there are a handful of short story / reading apps out there, but they look and feel like apps. Our goal is to have a nicely art directed and curated app, with regular refreshes (or editions) that look and feel more like a magazine or a journal than an app.
WANT TO SHARE YOUR STORIES ON OUR APP?
For the prototype, we'll use mostly public domain content, but we'd really love to have original stories from established and aspiring writers, who'd like to contribute, and hopefully reach a new audience. Right now we're developing this for the fun of it (in fact Mário's using it for his Software Engineering Masters project), and nobody's getting a dime! In fact, if you have books for sale on Amazon, Book Depository or elsewhere we'll include a link to the sales page through the app!
WE DON'T OWN YOUR STORIES!
You will still retain 100% ownerships and rights of your stories, and if you want to pull them from the platform at any point, just let us know. If and when it starts to make some money we'll have a system in place to pay authors based on their story views and popularity. We're still working out that kind of hypothetical future stuff, but I'll keep you updated!
