We help emerging fiction authors grow their audience.… | Verso.ink

Write more. Market less.

Grow your audience by leveraging the power of online community through Verso.ink.

We aim to connect discerning readers with the best emerging fiction by showcasing the work of high quality indie and hybrid authors.

Think of it like a farmer's market for exclusive fiction authors. As authors come together to share short stories, first chapters, and excerpts from longer works, the whole community benefits!

Unlike other fiction-sharing platforms, we use a curated system that enforces community standards, a democratic voting process to upvote favorites, and an editorial review that promotes the most notable work.

Additionally, you can connect with your new readers by including links to your existing social media channels, email newsletter sign-ups, and direct links to your work on Amazon.

All for absolutely free!

We're looking for a select number of authors who are serious about building up an exclusive community they can be proud to be a part of, helping them to worry less about marketing and focus more on what they do best; writing!

Applications are open for a limited time. Apply now!

Encouraged to buy

Providing free samples is a proven technique to increase sales. Verso.ink is designed to gently move readers to click through to Amazon and buy.

Quality reading

Verso.ink is designed to improve the readers' experience and give them a positive impression of your work using beautiful typography and a subtle design.

You're in control

You (or your publisher, with permission) retain control over the copyright and can publish or un-publish whenever you want. Unselectable text reduces the chance of theft.

Think Verso.ink is a good fit? Let's get started.

Because we want to only highlight quality work, each submission is reviewed before it is published. Per our Community Standards we're looking for high quality work that is well-written, properly edited, and appeals to a wide audience.
