With this new concept readers can enjoy great new short stories from fresh, new and budding authors for the price of what most people lose down their couch.
(PRWEB) June 6, 2010
Fraxion Payments, the company behind the plugin that allows website owners to charge micropayments for their content, revealed today a new use for their technology which is already removing boundaries for authors to become published.
Kwik Reads (http://www.kwikreads.com), a website solely devoted to short stories, uses Fraxion Payment's technology to "lock" short stories. The benefits to the reading public is they receive high quality short stories for only a few cents, and they can read them on internet mobile phones.
The website says the cost is about 3c per 1,000 words, which is about $3 for a full length novel. It’s also easy for readers to register.
And because it's internet based no "app" is needed, which makes these short stories independent of the mobile phone's brand or model. All readers have to do is go to http://www.kwikreads.com.
"With this new concept readers can enjoy great new short stories from fresh, new and budding authors for the price of what most people lose down their couch," Fraxion Payments co-founder Chris Wilkins says.
There are already stories from a wide range of genres from fantasy to history, comedy to horror, and even some R18+ romance (erotica).
This is also a great way for any new author who wants to promote their work and create a fan base. Already a growing number of authors have taken up this new publishing opportunity, especially as short stories have not been properly serviced by the main stream publishing industry over the last few decades.
