Who started totally novel anyway?


Hey everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself to anyone I haven't met yet. My name is Sam and I created Totally Novel. I am a writer, an avid reader, a lover of social media & above all a net-worker. I've been passing recommendations and connecting people for as long as I can remember. 

When I first started writing, there was this lovely community on G+. I learned so much about writing and met so many incredible people. I'm not sure what I would have done without it. Then, it got closed down and everyone scattered to obscure corners of the internet. We've all been mourning the loss. 

So, late last year I decided to do something about it. I took the two things I loved the most (writing & connecting people) and created this website! I am excited to work on new features, curating content that is helpful, and bringing together experts to help you on your writer's journey. My goal is to become the best platform for writers. I want a one-stop-shop kind of place that is easily searchable and provides undeniable value. If there are things you'd like to see or have on the site, reach out! I would love to hear your ideas and see what's possible. 

Enough about me, let's get to the good stuff! Become a member today to check out all the cool things Totally Novel is doing. I cannot wait to connect!
