Book View Cafe: A New Venture in Online Publishing

By Nancy Jane Moore

Do you find yourself running out of good fiction to read? Book View Cafe is the solution to your problem!

Book View Cafe is a brand new (we're still arranging the furniture) online source for fiction from 21 writers, including Ursula K. Le Guin, Vonda N. McIntyre, and Aqueduct authors Sue Lange and Nancy Jane Moore.

Book View Cafe has everything from flash fiction to novels, and we include many genres, though we're heaviest on science fiction and fantasy. Most of the content is free, but some authors will also be offering expanded work, subscriptions, print versions, and additional content for a fee.

Right now I'll be posting a new free flash fiction every Sunday -- with an occasional longer story thrown in just to keep you on your toes. My first story, "The English Major's Revenge," debuted Sunday, Nov. 16.

We have a companion blog to the site and it will be updated daily, too. My regular blog posting day is Sunday. Here's my first post: my opinions on flash fiction.

Book View Cafe writers are all professionals with lots of print publishing credits. We just want to widen our publishing horizons.

The authors are:

Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff
