ReadWave: A New Marketing Platform for Authors Logo ReadWave have just launched the beta version of their new platform for readers and writers. The ReadWave platform enables authors to build up a fanbase and market their work online. Readers can access thousands of stories and read them for free on mobile devices. The site, which has been in development since October 2012, functions as an alternative to Twitter for writers, and allows writers to build an online following by giving away free content.

ReadWave Founder, Raoul Tawadey, said, “We’ve found that short stories are 300 times more popular than novels among online readers, so we’re focusing on short content. The idea is that writers give away free short stories in order to build up a following and then they can leverage that following to sell their novels.”

“We’re looking at all the tools that writers need to build up a following online and sell their stories. Over the next few months we’re going to be rolling out some exciting new features for writers, including the ability to embed your writing onto your blog, as well as the ability to send newsletters to your fans.”

ReadWave will also be publishing an annual Short Story Anthology of all the best stories posted up to the site. Writers can submit their stories by posting up their stories to and then emailing a link to their story to

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
