With space on the library shelves scarce, the characters of your most beloved genres are banding together into gangs to secure their books' places - and their lives.
The little town of Stonewood sits in the forested hills of East Tennessee. Like most towns, it has a public library, and like in most libraries, a strange and entirely invisible war rages.
Gangs centered around major book genres battle one another for space on the shelves. The more books in their area, the better the chance of their own novel being read. Readership determines life or death, so it's every genre for itself.
But if survival alone wasn't enough, genre rivalries and biases leave some gangs not only fighting for shelf space but pushing their own agendas as well - even within their own groups.
Welcome to Shelf Space. Let the war resume.
of the month
Jan. 1 Welcome to 2018! This month's newsletter is short and sweet, but don't let that stop you from reading it.
No special event this month, so let's really use this time to further our gang sub-plots!
" Nothing brings you together like a common enemy.”

New Member's Guide
The basic steps from finding the site to your first character's acceptance.
Before beginning, please check up on the site's rules, plot, FAQ, groups, dictionary, and other guides. If there are any questions, please ask in the cbox (for short questions) or in the help forum (for longer questions). Registered members can also PM a staff member.
Once you have read over the information, the next step is your character. Register the character's name - first and last unless given otherwise in the novel. We do NOT have OOC accounts here.
Submit an application. If you need time to work on your app, add "WIP" to the topic title or the topic description. Remove it when the application is ready to be reviewed.
Please be sure to link your book in the application. Staff and other members who read the app may not be familiar with the work you selected.
In as timely a manner as possible, a staff member will read your application. If the app is marked as "Pending", then you will need to make the changes staff list.
Don't forget to complete the mini profile.
When your character's application is accepted, staff will move it to the appropriate Published sub-forum. Your next task is to post your three claims. Use the Claiming Thread topic to make all your claims in one convenient location. Failure to make appropriate claims may result in the loss of a play-by or character despite an accepted application. Please post your claims as soon as possible after acceptance.
