welcome to chainbooks...


chainbooks is a site dedicated to bringing authors of all skill levels and experience together within a social network with the goal of writing short chapter at a time


The concept of chainbooks is simply to finish what was started before you. Create an account, log in and select your favorite genre, your writing level, and where in the book you would like to work. There are virtually hundreds of books that contain a first chapter written by one of our approved authors in which you may work. For each book we will have an overall plot and a list of main and sub characters to help you. Each of the chapters have a minimum and maximum number of words (typically a maximum of 3,000) and a timeframe for submission (5 days maximum after you agree to write in the book). While you may only write one chapter in each book, you may write in as many books at one time as you like. Additionally, though there are guidelines to follow, our staff will never alter the twists and turns that happen in each book as various writers add their ideas. If you are an artist, you may read the chapters to submit a piece of art for every chapter or even the front or back cover. When the book reaches a certain number of chapters, it is completed. Finally, everyone is notified and all contributors can order a quality paperback copy personally, or for friends and family.
