OMG it’s fanfiction gone legit! Fanlib takes my embarrassing little secret and puts it right out there on the web, complete with a fancy interface and corporate backing. I’m not sure how I feel about it, either. It was kind of fun belonging to this underground literary cult and now it’s all Yahoo’d and outted. I’ll miss the secret handshake.
This from Mashable:
“FanLib announces today their co-promotional partners including HarperCollins, Penguin Books, Showtime Networks, Simon & Schuster and Starz Entertainment. FanLib has also received a reported $3 million in funding from prominent names in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, including Jon Landau, Jon Moonves, and FanLib Chairman Anil Singh, former Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Yahoo!”
