Thanks to your posts, comments, and enthusiasm, Fictionaut is growing into a place we’re getting more excited about every day. If you feel the same way — or you happen to have Thomas Pynchon’s email address — you can use the invite tool to ask your friends to join. We’ve added invitations to every user account.
I’ve been asked “Who should I invite?”, but of course that’s entirely up to you. Writers looking for a community or a new avenue to publish, readers who trust their own taste, and just about anybody interested in discovering fresh writing would all make a great fit. Fictionaut is an experiment, and curiosity, talent, and a little bit of courage to try something new are more important to us than impressive literary bona fides. If you think that somebody might enjoy the site, they probably will.
And no, it’s not firstname.lastname@example.org. Believe me, I tried.
