I was wondering if I can get some advice before I "dive" into a certain niche. My passion is writing (mainly screenwriting).
Anyway, what I want to do is start a type of authority site dedicated to fiction stories, but it will be only fiction stories dedicated to a certain genre, such as horror or erotica (which are right now, the two genres I'm interested in).
So, basically, unlike many fiction sites that are more educational in nature and dedicated more to teaching people how to write and market their novels, short stories, kindle, etc..., my site will feature various horror (or erotica) stories and short stories that will be contributed by various authors (I may contribute some of my own... although all my horror stories are in screenwriting format and need to be adapted to fiction format ).
I guess if I have to compare my site to another one, it will be more like Wattpad and some other fan fiction sites floating around on the web.
Anyway, I was wondering what your thoughts are about starting a site like this, the potential, and also the different ways I can monetize and make money from the site (other than selling my own stories).
I've been giving a lot of thought about ways to make money from a site like this.
Any advice or thoughts about the potential of my "nice" would be greatly appreciated.
