Everyone has a novel to create.
Work with the world to write and publish yours.


Looking for a new book? Want to explore what others across the globe are creating? Just want to curl up with a good story? Next Chapters lets people everywhere purchase, download and enjoy our finished novels. Select your book and start reading.

Do you want to see the alternative plots and Next Chapters written by all the authors for your novel you're reading? You can also get all the chapters written for a story, to see different perspectives and story lines! Your book may even have two completely different endings written by a different stream of authors!

Be sure to leave a rating for each chapter's author. The better the author's rating, the more we'll thank them for their contributions.

Do you have a story inside you that needs to be told? Writer's cramp or time constraints preventing you from writing more than a chapter or two? Let Next Chapters help you create that story, or help other authors finish their stories.

If you're a Next Chapters writer, you can select ANY chapter on any available project you see, and add your own touches with the Next Chapter.

Want to write a novel with your friends then sell it? Next Chapter lets you invite your own group of authors to construct a novel.

Sign up as a Next Chapters writer and see the projects available. Start your own or jump in on any current story and write the Next Chapter at any point of the book.

Once your story is finished, we'll help you publish and sell your book to interested readers worldwide. You and all the authors share in the proceeds.

If you're the First Chapter author, you get to guide the story along. Choose "official" chapters, see author ratings, and send edits if you choose. The more you guide your project, the more we thank you when readers are purchasing your novel.
