our success stories say it best:
  • Finding this site three years ago was a blessing to me. I am becoming the writer I wanted to be because of what I've learned at FanStory. I have had stories published (the publishers came to me), won the state contest last year in the short story category, and have been asked to speak at writers groups. Three years ago I couldn't write a grocery list. –Marti Hurst

  • Without the wonderful writers and reviewers on Fanstory, the publication of my book "She laughs with demons," would still be just a dream. I was given help with grammar, encourgament and gentle critiques. They were all given to help me improve my work. Everyone on FanStory helped me grow as a writer. I will forever grateful .–Shirley Bracken aka Shirley B

  • I stumbled onto FanStory by accident last January and decided to try it out. Little did I know I had just signed up for the wildest ride of my life! Here we are over a year later and I just published my first book on Amazon, "Miss Mabel's School for Girls." If that sounds familiar, it's because Miss Mabel's started here as a first draft at FanStory!

    Without FanStory, I can definitely say that this book would never have happened! I'm so grateful to all I learned and all you taught me. Thank you, thank you FanStory! - –kcross11 ("Miss Mabel's School for Girls" was published April 2014)

  • FanStory sponsored a contest to write a novel in two months. I completed it February 29 of this year. Last night I signed a contract with a publisher. Thanks so much to the people who read "Melinda Heads West" and helped me by reviewing and sending tips my way. I'm over the moon! I've said this before, I'm saying it again.... I LOVE FANSTORY! Thanks for all you do! –Robyn Corum
