What Do You Think?

I’ve closed the poll (yay).  I’ve been playing around on this site a bit but can’t find anything to protect any of the stuff that I might post on here.  I do intend to post summaries and excerpts on the new pages but I don’t know if I want to put the whole thing.  As of right now, I have two options:

1. I can make the pages viewable only to those that I allow.  Yes, this is a pain to those of you who just want to read it but I might have to do it.  I really, really don’t want to go this route.

2. Upload the stories to Lulu and Kindle and offer them as free downloads.  This, too, is a pain, but at least it prevents nasty, dishonest people from taking what’s not theirs.

What do you think?

    I say which ever one is easier for you! As long as I can read your stories I’m happy!

  2. Marsha

    I agree, whichever is easier for you. I am just excited to read your stories again.

    I think lulu, or something like that, because it narrows an audience when having to approve people coming in.

    I think I like the lulu idea a little better, but either is fine.

    try upload them as protected google docs

    I vote for one of the stories, but I will read wich ever is first, as long as I can read your stories again

    I agree with everyone! Whatever is easier and you think is best to keep your stories safe. I love all of them and I can’t wait 😀

    You could always try livejournal and set it to friends only or something. There are a few communities like The Write Away and Plagiarism Haven already up there, though you’d only be able to post on TWA.

    I like the idea of the protected Google docs!

    Yeah the Google doc idea is great! I also like the Lulu one..but then would you only upload complete stories?

    I honestly like the Kindle book idea best, but I definitely agree that whatever works best for you is best for us!
    Thank you so much sharing your work! 🙂

    What you could do is create a website on freewebs like most authors and have members that can view your work. So you can monitor who is seeing your work and other things like that.

    Another writer that I used to read her stories on fictionpress has moved her stories on to protected google docs she has them in a pdf file with a watermark type thing on it so if its printed out it still has her name all over it this is her site if you want to go look
