Kenneth Wright, a literary agent at Writers House in NYC, has joined WEbook as a columnist. His inaugural "Ask the Agent" column was a huge hit on the blog, so we decided to keep him around (er, rather, he decided to write a second column). And he'll be writing more, almost weekly in fact. Keep an eye on the WEbook blog for future columns. And ask him questions. That's his thing. He'll answer one every week as part of his regularly scheduled program.
Iwearyourshirt.com guy to wear our shirt on the day he happened to appear on CNN. Not so dumb, right? Want to see how he raved about us? Sure you do.
We all love feedback. We crave it. We give it to get it. And we love it when someone says "Great freakin' job, man! Keep at it!" But deep down, we want more. We want to know whether our characters kick ass or fall flat. Enter "Structured Feedback," WEbook's ongoing committment to raise the bar on reviews. With specific categories for assessment--plot, structure, tone, etc.-- you can now get as multi-layered in your critique as the characters in that amazing chapter you just read. If you haven't already taken it for a spin, give it a try. We think you'll like the ride.The incomparable Jayne Bonilla needs your help. She wants you to pre-order her book on Amazon. We're generally loathe to ask WEbookers to pony up their hard-earned cash for our books, but we think Jayne--and her book, of course--is that amazing. At least all the kids in the greater Miami-area think so. Because, um, Jayne's been reading to them, all of them, and now they're camping out on her front lawn. Okay, maybe not camping out on her front lawn, but they really like her book. And you will too. Take a test ride here. Then order here.
Etan Thomas, editor of Voices of the Future on WEbook, and professional basketball player and Huffington Post blogger and general champion of youth writing kindly sat for a Q&A grilling on the blog. What did he say? A lot, about everything, including R. Kelly, gay marriage, and going back to Oklahoma to play for his new team, the Thunder. Read his post, contribute to his project, and bring a little thunder of your own.

Dear WEbook writers and readers,
After five wonderful years of running WEbook.com, it is with great sadness that we have decided to close the site. We are one of the last to take this step but despite spending a huge amount of our own money, at some point the money runs out and we, like Book Country, Authonomy, Figment and many others, have been forced to make this painful decision.
The lights will be turned off for a final time on March 31st 2018, after which WEbook.com will cease to exist. Any work that you would like to retain must be downloaded from your account by midnight GMT on March 31st, 2018. Anything that is left on the site after this will be unrecoverable in accordance with the Data Protection Act, 1998.
Although our time with WEbook has come to an end, if you would like to make us a serious offer, now is your opportunity. Drop us a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org
WEbook has taken us on a wonderful journey, with a group of really talented writers. Thank you to everyone for putting so much effort into the site, and of course into each other's writing.
Just don’t stop writing because of us!
The WEbook Team
