ABCtales publishes 100 000 Stories
Posted by Luke Neima on Tue, 19 Nov 2013
ABCtales has just published its 100 000th story — this is a major milestone for us and I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for your continuing support of the site, and for filling it with so much excellent work throughout the years.
From its inception in September of 2000 ABCtales has been dedicated to supporting writers and helping them to develop in every way we can. And the stories speak for themselves – we’ve seen dozens of authors come and find their voice on the site, we’ve watched novels take root and grow and seen more than a few of them get snatched up by publishers. But more than anything else, we’ve proudly watched a community develop where anyone can feel comfortable participating — whether that be by sharing work, giving feedback or simply reading.
And 100 000 is just the beginning. We are currently building new channels to help spread the work of our authors to a wider readership, and a large part of that will be unveiled next month as we launch a new version of the site. It will be the same ABCtales you all know so well – just simpler and easier to use!
Thanks to all of you once again, I’ll be popping a bottle of bubbly in celebration and hope that you all will take a moment to celebrate, too.
