Radish - Anyone check out this fiction reading app?
« on: December 07, 2017, 07:43:19 AM »
Just stumbled on this app today. Called Radish, I think it's trying to emulate the short, serialized reading going on over in Asia. Seems interesting. That whole scene has piqued my interest but I just haven't looked into it too much.

Wondering if anyone else has any insights or thoughts.

Edit: Forgot to add a link: https://www.radishfiction.com/

They tried to recruit non-Romance writers on WFG and got shot down pretty hard. http://forums.webfictionguide.com/topic/radish-ama

In case of tl;dr: they are currently good for Romance, not so much for anything else. You might also consider looking into Tapas: https://www.kboards.com/index.php?topic=253323.0 which has (as far as I know) more readers across a broader spectum of genres. Also web comics.  8) Their strict requirements for super short updates could mean quite a bit of restructuring, though.

Oops, thank you! That feeling when you realize you must have misspelled radish in the search box because it didn't show anything the first time...smh.

'Radish' and 'Kboards' in the Google search bar is the magic trick.  ;D
