Selecting the best Themes for your story

Using Themes increases your story’s visibility on our search engine. Users have the ability to browse by Theme on the app. The more Themes you use, the more chances readers will find your story.

 

Joining your readers on Radish LIVE

Use Radish LIVE as a way to interact one-on-one with your readers, create buzz on social media, and build your audience. You can do coin giveaways, share a teaser for the next episode, host a trivia game, or simply sit back and enjoy the conversation!

 

Engaging with your Radish readers on social media

As soon as you’ve published an episode, tell your readers about it!

Share your episode links on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram), your newsletter, or any of your other existing writer platforms every time an episode releases. If you’re part of a writing community, reach out and cross-promote each other’s work. You can find your episode links in Radish at the top of your story’s page and in Writer’s Web.  

Use our Author’s Notes to start conversations with your readers. Prompt discussions and generate excitement with your readers by sharing your social media handles. You can get feedback from your reader base instantly without having to wait.

Tweet us! Tag @Radish_Fiction when you share your episode link so we can like your post.

 

Organizing your own Author Coin Giveaways

Want to do something special for your readers? You can organize a coin giveaway with your reader base either on Radish LIVE or on your social media. Choose how many coins to award your readers and how you want to choose a winner, and then announce the giveaway on your social media account.

Get in touch with our Writer Success Team at writers@radishfiction.com if you have any questions before you get started.
