When you submit a story you are given a choice of 10 different categories; Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Horror, Non-Fiction, Romance, Science Fiction, Thrillers, Westerns, Poetry, and Humor. Sometimes you may want to choose more than one category. On our website we only allow our authors to post a story in one category. The most important reason for this is to make it simpler for authors and people who want to find stories to read. Another is because having posts in multiple categories can effect a stories ranking in search engines. Having a story in multiple categories can be viewed as over-optimization and a form of search engine manipulation.

We want as many people as possible to read and enjoy our author's stories so we must ourselves adhere to these strict guidelines. We know search engine manipulation is not the intent behind authors who want to post in multiple categories. However we have to deal with the cards we are dealt by Google, Bing, and other major search engines. These two reasons are why we only allow for posts in a single category.

Choosing which genre your story belongs in can be difficult at times. Perhaps your story has elements of love, adventure, and horror. We understand that many of our authors' stories have a variety of themes intertwined together that create a final piece of work. It is important however that you find a theme in your story that stands out the most and select a genre accordingly. Over time we will be deepening the complexity of our genres as our website grows. For the time being we are beginning with the 10 categories described in the first paragraph.

Please follow the links of each category below and read our descriptions so you may foster a better understanding of which genre your unique story embodies the most. Using our descriptions to develop a better sense of what stands out in your story, how people view your work, and how you perceive your work, will help you gain a wider audience of fans and readers by selecting the proper genre to post your story in.

Attention! The descriptions of how to decide the whether or not your story fits in to a certain genre is still under construction. We will get them all up as soon as possible!

Some of our descriptions for the genres are still being written. They are actually quite in depth and you will enjoy them!
