Trying to Get Read

I've posted a few pages of Scary Mary over at FictionPress is the sister site to, but FictionPress is for only original work. I have no hard figures, but I believe the median age of FictionPress is somewhere in the thirteen-fifteen age range, which is the age range of readers I would like to attract, and since these are all young writers posting on the internet, I believe they should be quite willing to read work over the internet. We will see.

I will have to be pretty involved with the FictionPress to get any sort of audience. Stuff there gets buried pretty quickly if it isn't updated often. I will be posting roughly a page a day there to try and stay on people's radar. We'll see what happens. I'll also post a few reviews there to get noticed some. If this works out, I'll hopefully get some feedback and maybe attract some readers over to SM's blogspot site.

I'm not the age range you are looking for (I'm a bit of an old fart!) but I have read your 'Scary Mary' and all I can say is WOW!
Get copywrite or something to protect your story and get it published. It's really great.
Can't wait for the rest of it.

Azzitizz, thank you for the compliments! I'm really happy that you liked it, and I'd like people of any age range to enjoy Scary Mary. I just figure I'll have the most success with the teens. Hope you continue to like it.
