What is webfiction? Easy answer: fiction on the web! By which I mean, tales intended for a web-audience, not a book that’s temporarily serialized waiting for some print publisher to discover it and make the author a superstar.
I adore the concept of offering one’s writing to as wide an audience as possible, and that includes making my work available for free. The benefits for the readers are (hopefully) that they enjoy a captivating story that continues to enthrall them over a long stretch of time… and, of course, there’s no payment necessary! For me, the chief benefit has been interaction with my readers. My creativity has always thrived thanks to a give-and-take relationship with an audience, dating back to when I used to perform in school musicals, plays and concerts. I can genuinely credit the readers of my webserial for a great part of my growth as a writer. Their feedback has been intelligent and illuminating, and I wouldn’t be half as adept at storytelling without them. Without you–if you start reading and taking part in the fun!
“Suspense, romance, psychology…and a touch of the bizarre.”
When a brutal murder in a jazz club shocks a small New York town, the residents’ lives are ripped apart by secrets ranging from personal to political to the utterly bizarre. Everyone’s lives are touched by the murder, and the cops suspect a conspiracy focusing on a local golden boy, the wealthy, allegedly idealistic do-gooder Tristan Campbell. Who killed the warm-hearted waitress? Who’s blackmailing the would-be state senator? What’s the unfathomable truth behind a woman’s strange illness? Who on the police force is hiding a nasty secret of his own? Why does the chief witness for the prosecution really disappear? (And these are just a few of the mysteries in the first season alone!)
A longrunning, acclaimed serial launched in 1997 focusing on the twisted psyches and self-destructive behaviors rife within a tight-knit community.

If you love continuing dramas with classic, character-driven plots, you’ll love ASF. Dive in … and don’t be afraid of the dark.
Despite its lengthy history, you can start at any time thanks to easily accessed character bios, setting descriptions, and episode/plot recaps. Also, readers can vote and play a role in the future lives of their favorite (or least favorite) characters.
