Compass Articles



Many of the fiction series and novels we feature in the Literary Compass articles have groups linked to them. We accept affiliations with these groups and some other literature based groups.

Stay or go?

What's the next stop?

I know I just posted an article about coming back soon. But, honestly, I have been wavering back and forth on this for a while. As much as I love his series, it really never has gotten much of an audience, and many of the people who I have approached to be featured have only been lukewarm. I also see that there is a surge in the lit community of other people looking to do features on novels and/or series. So, my question is, is Literary Compass relevant? Should it continue? This article isn't about me, it's about the works featured. However, getting a feature and finding it lead to little or no new interest in your work can be disappointing for artists.

My question is, do you read the series? Do you want it to continue?

I don't just want to close the doors without warning, but on the other hand, it's something that seems more and more prudent.

Hey, I know I haven't replied in so long, I've been very body. But this would be a sad to see this group to go, I've heard about it and I think it's a great idea. If I had any money I would donate, but I'm not allowed to get a job with me going to school and all. Wish I could do more.

As a novelist, I can't tell you how great of an idea this group is. It's sometimes difficult, not only being in the minority of long form writers, but finding fellows to share and talk ideas with. This creates a wonderful little hub that is not only a means for connection but showcases some great authers out there that might have otherwise gone undiscovered. Magnificent!
