I've been dong a bit of research on blog fiction lately, out of interest to see what's out there. I have to say I've been surprised by the scope of talent out there. While I always found webook uninspiring due to the volumes of (dare I say it) crap posted on there, it seems those who take the time and effort to set up their own blog fiction really have something going for them. I suppose you'd want to have some serious dedication and talent to devote the time to setting up and regularly posting fiction on a blog, while with webook its easy to just chuck up whatever you want, whenever you want.
My new devotion to this somewhat maligned format of publishing has been cemented by what I think is a golden find, the blog series Steal Tomorrow. I have to assume that the author is American, and it actually reminds me of a best-selling series we have here in Australia by John Marsden called Tomorrow, When the War Began. The concepts are a little similar, but the stories are vastly different. The author's execution of Steal Tomorrow is just brilliant (in my opinion) and I'll be following it closely from now on. I wish this author every success, and truly believe that she might really have something if she wanted to pursue more traditional means of publication.
That said, I have other work to do!
