    [ePub] Silk Words

    I searched and couldn't find a thread on this "publisher".

    Tonight, I happened upon Silkwords, a subscription based website that hosts interactive romance and erotica stories. They're almost like Choose Your Own Adventure type stories. It looked kinda cool and they take submissions. However, it seems they only accept M/F and M/F/M.

    They just started last year, 2014. Does anyone have any experience with the website?

    https://www.silkwords.com/

    After some further investigation, it seems the site was created by a (current?) Microsoft employee.

    Oracle's Light: final edits
    Nightscapes: edits done
    Fool's Errand: editing
    Fire in the Skies: next in line
    Dark Knights: 35,000/?? (on hold)

    Interesting! I once wrote a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure erotica story--but so long ago I bet it'd make me cringe now. Maybe I should dust it off...

    There's a pretty decent market for Interactive Fiction out there. I don't want to say too much more because I don't know that much about the publishing side of IF, but if you search for that phrase you may get more results and more variety of publishers to compare.

    I loved Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books when I first started reading and I still write for games, which is the contemporary equivalent. Some new tools like Twine and Ren'Py make it fairly easy to develop text-based games, so it's kind of like hypertext novels are making a comeback. It's somewhat of a different market and readership than book publishing, though.

    Yeah, I'm totally interested, but I can't find any information on the genres they accept. The website only hosts M/F and M/F/M stories, when I primarily write M/M, etc.
