Forum: Story Discussion and Feedback

New "Recommondations" Forum

Crumbly Writer

For anyone who hasn't noticed—I haven't seen any posts yet—Lazeez created a new "Recommendations" Forum. This is designed to offload the many 'requests for story recommendations' so the this forum can focus on Story Discussions and Feedback.

There was a brief discussion (between two of us, so count that as you will) over whether 'negative recommendations' count as recommendations or story discussions (critiques, if you will). Hopefully, by keeping the discussions separate, it'll help simplify the search for lost stories, asking for story recommendations and discussing stories processes.

You are right, I hadn't noticed the new category and it is a good idea.

Now all we need is a new forum for bitchin' about scores (hopefully one which Lazeez will never visit!). 'D

By the way, I'm already envisioning what new discussion Forums we'll need for the upcoming SOL Sales channel site.

If everyone stopped bitching about scores, we might run out of topics to bitch about.

I haven't heard about an SOL Sales channel site. It sounds like a site for selling SOL stories to include those written by amateur authors.

Never happen, some will be sure to bring politics or religion or grammar into a thread, and the bitching levels will go sky high within a few posts.

Lazeez, while not specifically saying anything, hinted that there's a new sales site in development. It (presumably) won't sell amateur SOL stories, but rather should list the books professionally sold by SOL authors (i.e. no one has to worry about their stories being sold without their implied consent). More importantly, it should offer a simple and relatively painless way for SOL authors to begin selling books.

Never underestimate the ability of SOL authors to bitch and moan about inane topics.

Not just the authors. Readers are a huge part of all that bitching and moaning.

As they say in the military: A soldier isn't happy unless he has something to bitch about.

If they're not bitching, they're up to something that will end badly.

That's true. If you do find it, the way I did, it has a splash screen that says:

eBook Self Publishing

Coming in 2017


So the only books sold through it will be those where the author has lodged it there for sale through it, the same way Lulu and Amazon do, but with more author friendly terms than Amazon.

Yeah, and that is why their NCO is happy to hear them bitching. It's when they are quite that the NCO starts to worry.

Just like parents with their own children. Gives an alternate meaning to 'The Sounds of Silence'.
