Fiction Express is an award-winning innovative book platform that connects students with professional authors, encouraging reading for pleasure through fun co-creation of stories. Schools from all around the world who have signed up with Fiction Express, get a reading experience like no other; and for the authors, it’s a unique experience for them too.
Working closely with the editor, once the story proposal is agreed and a 5-week time slot allocated, the first chapter goes live on their website at a specific time – 11am GMT Fridays. Each chapter ends with a cliff hanger and three choices of what should happen next. Students vote over the next 3 days with the author receiving the verdict by the Tuesday. They then have two days to write it, ready to go live the coming Friday morning. Phew!
Aaghh! Back to square one. Happily, by week five we’d both got the hang of it. And it was a great experience, an amazing opportunity, and I’ve my fingers crossed for another book for Fiction Express in 2021.
