books.jpgI know most of the writers, possibly all of us, have various series or collections of stories that we have posted around the globe.  And I realize that most of the time they are listed as such, but it's darned confusing at times to try and track down stories and get them all read in the proper order.
So, here goes.
If you have a series of stories, or a collection, would you please round them up and post links to them here.  It would be nice to have a directory of sorts for everyone, in addition to the posts here on Section VII.
For instance, some of my own series on AO3 are these:
The ABC Affair
The House of Vanya
Once In Love With Amy
Pre-Series Illya

What I'm suggesting is that we have a directory of sorts, of stories that are tied together by a theme, events or a timeline, and post the links here as a permanent record of these collections.  Just do it under your own name as you would a story, list and provide links to the series and tag them with collections.  I'm adding the tag as I post this entry.
I hope you'll do this, and if you haven't already sorted stories into collections, perhaps this will help you begin the process of organizing your work.  It really does help the reader to find and enjoy your stories.

Great idea, though that may be a daunting task for me as I have so many series and not all are on AO3. Hmmm. I'll have to add this one to my to-do list.

The problem with using ff.net is that you can't set up the stories as a series which is the reason I moved things to AO3. I will do it.

The stories on ff.net are all over the place and not linked to each other, so it would really be sending people on a scavenger hunt. Eventually I want to move my series to AO3 so I can post them as a group and in order...but not right now. That's a big job.

I think I may have made this comment before, but mfuarchive.net has a very comprehensive indexing system, including an entry for series. You can easily upload a complete story or simply add a link. With the questions about LJ it might be good to have an additional site to store the directory.

Brilliant idea. I have a couple of series, but I made the switch to AO3 early on so that .although they are all on FF.net, they are all on AO3 as well...all sorted. I too will do as soon as I get the chance.
