    Is there a better way to link fans to my fanfiction?

    I am a writer of fanfiction and one thing I always found annoying was that I had to keep track of multiple links. Nobody wants to read a book in one sitting so I post chapters seperatly (like most of the writers here do)

    I have a slight OCD issue where I want my fans to have a simple way to access my work.

    I tried to just push all of it into my Sig but now I have many works that just don't fit anymore. So what I did was I made a thread that I linked all my chapters on and that way I could just provide one easy link in my sig and that way my fans could see my fanfiction easily.

    I could edit the thread every time I came out with a new chapter, but the problem is, after a certain ammount of time, I couldn't edit it anymore. So I would have to continously make new threads.

    On those threads I specifically asked people not comment so that I could make updates without interference, but of course people ignore that (and some troll for no reason)

    Is there a better way to provide a link for my fanfiction (all of it together, I saw the FF organization thread, but I find that It is not as easy to provide a link that way)

    Suggestion: Perhaps make a section where the serious writers can create stickys and link their ff. This might prove difficult but I have found no other methods that will work)

    That's a pretty good suggestion, it would make reading fanfics a lot easier and fix a lot of your problems. I would also suggest posting your fics on http://www.fanfiction.net/ if you haven't already.

    I was trying to avoid moving everything to another site as a rule.

    I deffinatly need to talk with one of the higher ups and see if such a thing is a reality

    Re: Is there a better way to link fans to my fanfiction?

    What used to be done is that FanFiction authors would make Social Groups and post the links to their chapters there. Their fans would subscribe to the groups, and thus would know when new chapters would come out.

    This can still be done, and is actually a fairly efficient way to handle it.

    Or if you'd like, create a thread in the FF section, i'll close it for you and then just PM me your new links/post and i'll edit the post for you.

    No problem - this was always an option for everyone who wanted to do anything similar to this.

    Just make the thread (or link me to the one you had already). Tell me what posts to delete/keep and give me the exact format of what you want your post to be and i'll simply copy-paste it in for you.
