I have been looking for alternative ways to offer readers novels to read for free. I have been working with Apester to provide an additional revenue stream. It is similar to how websites like Huffington Post use user generated articles. Before discovering Apester, my initial plan was to have readers contribute written articles/blog posts in exchange for chapters or subtitles.
It is still a work in progress but if I am able to get it working. Readers would be able to exchange poll suggestions for chapters. For example, a novel like Game Market 1983 which does not have enough readers would be able to make a comeback.
I will make an update next month.
