Tips

  • You don't need to have a book in mind. Jump in and add a sentence or two as feedback, or write a quick article for one of our collections. Grab your friends or - if you don't have any - find new ones right here who are willing and able to help refine your work. Read, review, rant, and rate other books.
  • Rating is for individual chapters, stories, articles, and poems within a project. Voting is for the project as a whole, once it's finished.
  • To get more votes: Get the word out. Use the "Share This" tool to add your Project to your profile on your Facebook or MySpace page. Invite friends to WEbook to read and comment on your work. Be creative about ways to make your project more active. Reach out to readers through blogging, social networking sites, or actual face-to-face contact
  • Groups are a terrific writing collaboration tool. Groups allow you to get regular updates on what your groupies are writing, what they think of something you wrote, or just the latest news in their lives.
