Hello friends and fellow bloggers,
I know this is a bit outside of my anime blogging, but I like to write stories on the side. I have a folder of many ideas that are unwritten. I am confident I am not alone here. I have managed to finish a book of around light novel length, a little over 42,000 words. I have started the second light novel but haven’t gotten terribly far into it. As an aside, I have had this project on hold for around 2 years.
What can I do with a light novel? Is there somewhere I can publish it online that wouldn’t cost me anything? It doesn’t even necessarily have to be an e-book. I don’t need to actually earn money from it. My day job covers my living expenses.
Looking at the publishing landscape online I have no idea what to even do with it. There are so many options and I don’t feel like any of them speak to me or what I want to do. Ideally I am looking for a third party platform, along the lines of webtoons, where you can just submit anything to a general audience.
I was hoping that there might be answers or good options that I haven’t been able to find. If anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate any tips or advice.
Thanks in advance!
