Use Your Time Wisely. Write

Join the revolution

FicShelf is an online community for people who love reading and writing. We support nascent novelists, exacting editors and designers to make a living from their talent.

How it works


We're about evolution as well as revolution: we believe that every good book needs a good writer, editor, proofreader and cover designer.


We're using technology to optimise every aspect of the publishing process and offer the best reading and writing experience, digitally.

Social trends

From the shared economy to social publishing, we're leveraging the latest social trends. Why? To allow readers to discover great writing, and to support writers to do what they do best - write!

"I've always had a passion for reading, and a few years ago I was delighted to discover the incredible world of self-publishing. I derived huge amounts of pleasure from the authors I read online, and wanted to find a way of rewarding them for the enjoyment they gave me. That's why I created FicShelf. I want to help great writers to make a living from their talent."

– Monique, CEO @ FicShelf
