Announcing Masterpiece Marketplace, dedicated to serving the writers and readers of Literary Fiction and Fusion Fiction.
Genre or Commercial Fiction doesn’t need much help getting seen and getting sold; that’s why it’s the bread-and-butter book for many authors to write. However, some authors also yearn to find an audience for their magnum opus: the lavish Literary or Fusion Fiction (multi-genre) novel they spent many loving years writing, but which may be hard to classify, and thus can’t be located amid the torrent of novellas and novelettes that flood the modern market.
There are also many readers who search for stories in which they can lose themselves for longer than a weekend afternoon. They’re the big-book fans of historical novels, family sagas, and multi-genre works that paint pictures inside their heads while portraying the intricacies of the human condition, in the literary classic writing style that can be hard to find on the virtual shelves of online retailers.
Masterpiece Marketplace exists to help bring together these writers and readers. It’s a completely free, cooperative virtual bookshop: Authors of Literary and Fusion Fiction join to list their works in blog posts that direct readers to their own blogs and retail sites; and they cooperatively help fellow writers by re-blogging others’ listings and promoting them via social networking. Readers will browse listings and click on the authors’ links to shop via their preferred retail outlets.
For wider recognition, the cooperative is also setting up shop at additional blog hosts. Book listings submitted to one Masterpiece Marketplace site will be distributed to the other domains. This is like placing your work in bookshop franchises in different cities.
There’s strength in numbers. Don’t try to market your Literary or Fusion Fiction all by yourself any more. Visit Masterpiece Marketplace today, join the cooperative, and find the readers who are looking for your magnum opus.
