Frequently asked questions

Why does fictionjunkies offer stories for free?

Because otherwise, the chances are they would languish unread in a hard drive. Fictionjunkies began life as in 2015, and originally, each story cost 50p to download. The main motivation for setting up the site was to get featured authors as big a readership as possible, and the tiny barrier of 50p was enough to interfere with that goal.

Rating & Reviewing Stories… Does It Really Make A Difference?

Definitely! Readers tend to choose stories that have a prior rating. Everyone likes praise, but constructive criticism is highly appreciated by most authors, not to mention other readers. A thoughtful critique often piques a reader’s interest far more than gushing praise. All reviews are welcome, but please folks, no insulting or abusive language.
