Ok Kellan, or legs *tut*. Bloody great show off
Ok, picture the scene. You're looking for a new fic to read and find two that you think sound quite interesting from the summaries, but you only have time to read one right now. You see that one has 11 reviews and one has 820. Which do you choose?
Yep, we've all done it I'm sure, choosing or avoiding stories based on the amount of reviews they have, but by doing this we're missing a whole host of fantastic fics and authors who for whatever reason, just aren't reaching the masses.
A lovely - and currently very excited! - lady called Dina over in Texas has recognised this and decided that she wants to do something about it. She put out a request for helpers on Project Team Beta who I use for my stories, and has now been joined by myself and two others, Kelly and Rebekah, to form Twific Promotions.
We're still in the setting up stages, but there's already the basics in place. We have a blog: Twific Promotions Look! We're already collecting followers in preparation, come over and follow too!
We have a Twitter account @TwificPromotion currently at 130 followers just over this weekend :o)
We also have a fanfic.net profile http://www.fanfiction.net/~twificpromotions with a link to a community. This lists favourite stories and authors.
Our aim is to find and review good, lesser known fics and then help promote them through Twitter, our blog and affiliate websites. We're also looking for fic scouts and story recommendations. The only thing we ask is that they are stories with less than 500 reviews.
This project will help authors and readers, I don't think there's many - if any - of us here that don't love a good fic.
So, please help in any way you can - follow us, tell people about us, RT any Tweets.
Anything else, Stan?
Well, only to say that if you know of, or are maybe involved with, any site that has a fanfic section that might be interested in being affiliated with Twific Promotions - Or Pimp My Scribe as I like to think of it ;o), then please let me or any of the other girls involved know.
Thanks for your attention on this matter, here's your reward :o)
