The place is called Book Island, and it’s located in the world of Second Life. There is a virtual cafe where authors and hopefuls congregate. There are regular readings, writer chats and informal schmoozing.
The entire area is dedicated to literature, from Orwell Avenue to Pulitzer Square. For a few dollars a month you can rent a little shop to display your book, all the information about it and links on where to buy it online. You can host readings in your shop whenever you work it out with your fans or have them at The Writer’s Block Cafe & Bar.
It’s all BYOB, and there’s no rules against kids, smoking and pets, and yet you will never be bothered by anyone else’s kids, smoking or pets. It’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no holidays. Editors, publishers, agents and writer of all levels of experience can explore and meet. Writers can now get a life, a Second Life. ;p
