Conservative Fiction & Fiction Writers
« on: April 23, 2009, 06:33:48 PM »
I have just created a site for fiction writers on the conservative-libertarian side thats not a gun-centric site. No baggage. The storyboard where we will post stories for critique, comment, advice and such is members only.

Uh, sir, these things don't take off running.

They start off slow, and pick up speed.

Give it six weeks, a couple of months.

Crawl down off the Judas Chair before you start twisting.  You'll get your participants.  Listen to Frank.  He's a smart man.

I would suggest that the primary submission requirement be that the author is conservative but place no requisite that the plot being conservative themed. In other words it should be acceptable to have entertainment for entertainment's sake.

Do you have content standards? Obviously writing about Japanese amputee midget porn would fall outside the intent of the website but some authors--like me for instance--can be fairly graphic when describing plot relevant details.

Will you ensure that the authors retain all copy rights?

There aren't any rules at all yet. I would have to say its a good idea not to post things you might like to sell someday, it is an easy thing to steal and repaste online, I think the AP and others learned that.

OK, I signed up. I have one book written that never sold, but it taught me how to write a book.
Now I'm working on a new book, have a first draft of my work so far.

Bitch slapped for whining.

Copyright law covers for electronic publishing but what you have to answer is whether the author retains all or some rights or do you consider stories posted at you site to be "work for hire" wherein the publisher assumes all rights.

That needs to be answered up front and posted on the site.
