With us you'll get a Stunning, Professionally-Designed and Edited site to help you…

A Single Source for Editing, Presenting and Promoting your Stories!


The process of writing (although fulfilling) can be hard enough, without the extra worries of self-editing, self-promotion, web-design and maintenance.

We recognize that there are many options available when considering 'e-publishing' and hosting services; Writer's blogs, Content-submission sites, personal & professional web-hosting, cover-art creation, etc. With so much to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming, especially for new/un-published creators.

At a-Story.org you can do it all in one place! No need to pay a separate fee for domain-names or web-hosting services. No complicated or time-consuming web design hassles. Let us do it all for you!

* a Story.org: The Basics ~


So, how does it all work?

  • a Story.org is an online Literary Graphic Magazine, with a Monthly publication schedule. We exist to promote an exclusive cast of writers and published authors via our unique and visually engaging "Story-Pages".
  • Unlike other Lit/Mag sites who may charge (up to $20 and more) per submission, we won't charge anything to host your work in a visual and engaging "Story-Page" that you can link to and share, helping you to grow your brand and fan-base!
  • We host a finite amount of Authors on the site per 30-Day (rotational) periods.
  • All active Members will reside within the "queue" of Authors and have their work showcased accordingly.
  • At the start of August for example, a new batch of Members will rotate thru the front-pages of the site and be listed in the "Featured Authors" Section!
* If you are currently a FREE Member, or in a Trial-Membership period, click around the site and get a feel for how you will be presented as a PRO or ELITE!
