It’s just great to have friends, isn’t it? Everything gets so much better when we have a friend to share with! And an author who writes about your favorite fandoms and OTPs is any reader’s best friend.

Right now you have a chance to get a great gift for your English-speaking friends who are into fanfiction writing.

Bring an English-speaking author to Fic.Fan and get 500 coins (to your Ficbook or Fic.Fan account, your choice), and the author you bring will get a Lifetime Premium account on Fic.Fan completely free!

You can help your favorite fandoms grow and flourish on Fic.Fan. And your favorite authors who write in English will get a cozy and comfortable place to express their creativity and hone their skills. Not to mention all the attention and praise they’ll receive!


How can I invite an author to join?

1. You should message the authors you follow on other English-language websites and invite them to Fic.Fan.

What should I ask the author to do for both of us to get a reward?

  1. The author should create an account on Fic.Fan
  2. They should publish at least 1 work on Fic.Fan
  3. They should place a link to their Fic.Fan account in the "About" section on the same fanfiction website they are currently using..

! You can write an invitation of your own, or you can use the text that we have already created for you.

    Dear author,

    I am your avid fan and I appreciate your fanfiction works. I want your works to get even more recognition because they are just wonderful!

    Recently a new website appeared that can offer everything to boost your creativity and promote your works. This website is called Fic.Fan. Right now Fic.Fan has a special offer: if you invite your favorite author to join the website and they do, then both of you will benefit from it. If you use my invitation to Fic.Fan, you will get a Lifetime Premium Account, which provides you with so many useful things! You can see statistics of views for your works, choose a cover for your work and much more! In return, I will get the website currency that I can use to reward authors like you for free.

    You need to follow these steps so that both of us can get rewards:

    1. 1. Create an account on https://fic.fan
    2. 2. Publish at least 1 of your works
    3. 3. Place a link to your new Fic.Fan account in your profile here.

    I really hope to see your works on Fic.Fan, they do deserve to get more appreciation! Please reply to this message if you’ll accept my invitation.


2. When you make sure that the author accepted your invitation to create an account, place a link in their profile and published at least 1 of their works on Fic.Fan, then you have to fill in this form.

The link to this form will always stay here, in this announcement. You can access the news you’ve already read by scrolling the page to the bottom. There you’ll see a button “Website news” in the lower left corner.

If several users invite the same author, the first user to make an arrangement with the author will get the coins. We will contact the author to make sure who was the first to invite them to Fic.Fan.


3. The only thing left to do is to get your reward and thank those authors whose works you like the most. You kind words inspire the authors to create.


PAY ATTENTION! Freshly created accounts on archiveofourown, fanfiction.net, or any other website for fanfiction writers that have no works published/no followers are not allowed to participate. The author you want to invite should have a real account, with works published, active. It should be created more than a month BEFORE the event.


You can invite as many authors as you want!

There is no “u” in “fanfiction” but there surely is a “u” in “community!”. The more like-minded friends you invite to join your fandom, the better and more active our community will become. Let’s put our joined efforts in creating a community where each and every one is included and respected!

Hope you’ll have a great time with this event!


If you have any questions, please, contact support.
