Everybody probably knows by now I host a twitter chat on a Sunday evening. You can easily find it by searching #WebFictionChat on Twitter.
I've put a schedule on my website so you can see what upcoming topics are, and if anyone wants to suggest a theme or to offer questions for one of the topics I've already scheduled, I really can't express enough gratitude. (Trust me, ten original and interesting open questions every week is hard).
Next topic (August 14th) is heroes, and you can see the schedule and questions on my site
The chat is for writers and readers, but its mainly just writers that get involved. There's usually about ten of us, and we get lost in tangents and have crazy discussions and it's a fun way to pass a Sunday evening, just talking about stories and craft and so on.
Launching on the 3rd Sunday of September (and thereafter running on the 3rd Sunday of the month) I've decided to turn one night into a Book Club night. For webserials. We'll pick a different serial every month and announce it the month before, so anyone who hasn't read it has time to check it out. And then the author of the serial will join in the chat and answer any questions anyone asks (it's perfectly okay to answer with "sorry, no spoilers").
The questions will be book club questions - they might relate to your characters, your style, your themes, or your medium (eg wattpad, wordpress). They might even be about your marketing or your stats or why you decided to write a serial instead of a book. Who knows?
Anyway, in return for coming by and answering rapid fire questions for two hours, you'll get your serial tweeted and hashtagged by several people all over our little part of Twitter. And you'll probably have fun. Or not. Also, you should probably (definitely) mention on your site a few times in the weeks before this happens that you're doing this - if your readers come by and take part and tweet out to their followers, you might get more readers, or more interesting in-depth questions. I don't know.
If you're interested in being the author of a featured serial, let me know, so I can set up a list of who is going when.
Antlers (Colorado) by Marn will be the first ever #WebFictionChat BookClub WebSerial.
