Hi Wacky Writers community!
TLDR; I’m looking for novel recommendations to read, assess, list, and potentially spotlight on my book blog, Archdale.
I’m a blogger that loves books and am fascinated by the publishing industry. In this current age of technology and digital media, many stories have shifted to self-publishing. While this makes writing and finding an audience more accessible, it’s also easy for stories to get lost and buried under the hundreds of thousands out there. Thus, I created a website last year aiming to connect avid readers to undiscovered stories in an effort to assist them in finding captivating new stories as well as to encourage emerging authors.
History of Website:
Due to various life occurrences, I was unable to keep up the website’s functions (assessing, organizing, and curating stories) for the entirety of the year after beginning this project in March 2019. But in the few months that I ran this by myself, I was honestly amazed by the positive feedback and unexpected surge of website visitors in the thousands per month. And so, here I am to start up this project again by asking for your participation in recommending stories right here on Webnovel!
What is Archdale (formerly Virtual Bookshelf)?
All stories are assessed with the human touch and indexed accessibly. I also used to offer in-depth reviews in the past, but I couldn’t keep up with demand as each would take a minimum of an hour to write, disregarding time reading the entire novel.
Call to Action
Just reply to this thread with any number of stories you want to recommend. Self-promotion is acceptable. In advance, thank you for your help! Let’s support hard-working writers and connect their stories to enthusiastic readers! Besides general exposure on the website’s index pages, a monthly feature of stories is also created to highlight new and upcoming works as well as older, undiscovered/underrated ones. You can also recommend stories specifically for this Monthly Highlight feature as well.
If you want to learn more about this ambitious project, or if you want to be a part of the Archdale community or voluntary staff, then visit our website or join us on the new, official discord.
There is an extra space after the //. I’m including these to show the blog for verification as well as the Discord for support.
