A new way to write...?

According to their site this is a new way for very young writers to get their work published and read. It's  certainly innovative and will make the creators some money - what do you think of it?

Fiction Express is an entirely new concept in fiction publishing for tweens and teens. It enables readers to engage with their favourite authors in a unique and original way by allowing them to contribute to the plot. Each episode is available to be read at 3.30 pm (UK time) every Friday. At the end of each chapter are a number of options on which readers can vote. The option with the most votes is the one the author writes in time for issue on the next Friday. All Fiction Express e-books run for 11 weeks. You will be able to begin buying chapters of an e-book at any point during the 11 weeks. After that time, the e-book will no longer be available to new customers.

If you have bought all of the chapters of the e-book, it will remain available on your 'My e-fiction' page for a fixed term of 5 years.  If you have purchased some chapters from the e-book but not all of them, you will have up to 3 months from the date upon which the last chapter is released to purchase the remaining chapters. After this time, you will no longer be able to purchase chapters.
Fiction Express credits are purchased using Paypal. You can either pay through a Paypal account or by using a credit or debit card. The Paypal payment system uses cutting-edge data encryption, fraud detection tools and all kinds of other advanced techniques to ensure that payments are secure.

  1. It's an interesting concept but I wonder how satisfying it is for a writer to not write the story they have in them but to have someone tell them what to do. Sounds like it would be an interesting exercise in working with what you've got but true creativity, inspiration and knowing that the work is yours in every way goes out the window.
