    @ Miz Erie
    It's one full story. I believe I have 15 chapter. When I published it on another site I just published them as parts. I've started a second one but that will indeed be another book. I won't post that until I have a few chapters done though. I would hate starting a story I really like only have to wait months for the next chapter.

    Hi again, Ryan! I accepted your friend request. If you are looking for proofreaders/betas, we have a thread here that can help with that. Unfortunately, that thread only works decently, instead of fabulously. We are currently brainstorming ideas for getting a better system in place to help writers find betas, but there is nothing concrete being put in place as of yet.

    I do have a question about your story. Is it a collection of oneshots? If so, you'd need to post each story separately and then add them all to a collection. The chaptered format is for linear stories (stories that progress from one chapter to the next, following the same plot line).

    Just as a helpful FYI, here is our Knowledge Base. There is always a link to it at the bottom of the Mibba page. It contains all of our rules, and some helpful tips for all sorts of subjects. It's a great area of the site to check out!

    If you have anymore questions, I'm always available! You can reply to me here, comment on my profile page, or, if you have a personal issue, swing over to my profile page and send me a PM!

    Hugs and loves!

    I'll check out your story. You can subscribe to a user by friending them. This means you get a newsfeed update whenever they post something, but not an alert. To get alerts about comments and updates, you need to subscribe individually to stories or blog posts.

    @ spacejunkie

    well I have one already. How do you subscribe to people's work? Do you have to do it for each solo item? Like a story and not a blog?

    Thank you so much Miz! Yeah I still want to be your friend. I am still trying to figure out this site and having you as a friend would make things a lot easier. A lot of my stories are done in chapters. If you've ever read Robin Hood, where each story is a chapter but could be read separately in any order, that is how I usually write my stuff. If you could help me find a person who would be interested in editing my stuff and giving feedback that would be great.

    Hi, Ryan. I'm Miz. First, let me say welcome to Mibba. I am on staff here as a Story Editor, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. If it doesn't pertain to the story area, I can either find you an answer or refer you to someone who can answer it for you. Mibba is generally a friendly community, and I truly hope you love it as much as I do!

    Secondly, I am more than happy to accept your friend invite if you still wish me to, but I do not do long term editing. I am happy to assist you if you have a short term need, such as you are having problems with a particular grammatical, formatting, or layout issue. Unfortunately, I am just very busy with my staff responsibilities, my responsibilities as a Planner for the Mibba Magazine, and with my own stories. I have been asked by several of my close friends to do beta work for them, and I have had to turn them down as well. I do apologize!

    Let me know if and how I can help you settle in here on Mibba, and please let me know if you'd still like to be friends on here!

    Hugs and loves!
    Miz
