Well, hello all. I'm Night's Angel. I'm a writer thou i don't have anything big out in the world. I do have a handful of stories here on FurRag. Don't know how many have really read them or what most do and spot read to see if they like it. If you have any questions about me or my work i'd be happy to answer them. But that's the kicker, you have to ask them first. Thank you as always and read enjoy and review.

Well hello there! I already noticed your stories on the main site before, though I admit I wasn’t in a reviewing mood…

As for questions, I’ll have to get back to you later when I’m less tired Wink

Hi Nights Angel,

Sorry things have been a bit wierd around here lately. I guess wierdness is to be expected where writers gather.

Welcome to the asylum.

Unfortunately, there really isn't anything else out there currently that's a direct replacement for FurRag. Out of the existing furry archive sites, I find SoFurry to be the most story-friendly. It has its problems, most notably from a focus on porn -- there's a long story behind that, but the short form is that SF used to be a porn-only archive called Yiffstar, and while they made a conscious effort to broaden that focus a few years ago, the bottom line is that there's still a whole lotta smut there and a whole lotta people looking for smut. Having said that, though, my experience is not the same as Quinn and Altivo's seems to have been -- my non-erotica stories have gotten equal or greater attention there than they have on Fur Affinity.

I also publish occasionally on my own web site (http://cprints.ranea.org), and setting up your own website is a lot easier now than it used to be even if you're not a nerd. It's at least worth considering using something like WordPress -- which you can set up for free on their hosted site -- or Tumblr, which despite appearances to the contrary is good for more than animated cat GIFs.

For the community aspect, a good (maybe even great) place to go is the Furry Writers' Guild, which was a bit quiet last year but has seen a resurgence of interest over the last few weeks due to its new management. Not that the new management is better than the old management -- Duroc, the founder, did a terrific job -- but frankly, the new FWG forums are a lot better than the old ones were.

WordPress is actually something I've been researching a lot lately. My mate's site is built on wordpress. (Shameless plug: See Amadhia.com)

Weasyl.com also has a lot of stories and writers but it's a lot like FA in many ways--just smaller. Poetigress and a few others are there.

I haven't been to SoFurry in quite a while; years actually. I may test the waters there again.

One of the things that I enjoy doing is helping new writers sharpen their skills. That is a large part of FurRag, probably it's greatest contribution to the fandom. On FA, SF, Weasyl, etc, the writers want praise over thoughtful crit. For my part, the crit circle is one of the most important parts of being a writer and the hardest to find.

My stories got very little (read: almost zero) attention on SoFurry, fap or no-fap.

Then again, they've gotten little enough feedback everywhere.  Perhaps writing isn't my calling. 
Or perhaps I have no calling.

*Earperk!*

Thank you!
I look forward to hearing your opinion when you've finished it~
Believe it or not, the above is already more feedback than I've gotten from most.  ^.^

Thank you.

The truth is, furry readers seem to be very poor at giving feedback. As we've seen in the last few weeks, FurRag had a lot of readers who never said anything. They just read, and apparently enjoyed the content.

The statistics on FurRag showed that, even if the comments did not. I had several book excerpts on there, none of them posted in their entirety, that had reader counts in the tens of thousands.

In your case, Sasya, now that you have a book out on Amazon, you need to promote the heck out of it. Talk it up everywhere you can. And keep writing so you get some more available in the same spot. Quite a number of people have built up large audiences by publishing on Amazon or Smashwords, but it takes time to gather a following.
