    I second @Dawn Chapman Her books are fantastic!

    I also have a female MC. But my book won't be out until May.
    You can find an early draft of it on either Book Brawl or Royal Road if you're really hankering.

    Well it's on both, but I can't see why anyone would read it on both since it's the same book? Haha. Yeah I know all about WattPad. I had some... less than savory experiences there.

    A Novel World by Solopath on Royal Road has a female main character. I can’t get the link inserted to work so I’ll just paste the URL like a damn barbarian.

    A Novel World | Royal Road

    ETA: Huh! Can’t even be a barbarian right.

    It’s one of those “Apocalypse overlays a litrpg system onto the real world” stories, and the system is an interesting one based on the one in Randidly Ghosthound, where you raise your skills and receive points that allow you to pursue Paths such as “Magic Mastery” and “Path Of Patience.” The paths raise your stats and give other bonuses as you go along. I’ve seen several stories tha5nuse this idea, and I like it quite a bit.

    The Ghosthound connection, for those familiar with it, is strong in some ways but not in others. I liked GH for awhile but it got to be too much. A Novel World doesn’t have the same issues, and doesn’t seem to be headed the same way. The basic plot at the beginning is similar, though. The MC - an intern at the CERN supercollider who pushed the button to start the experiment that apparently resulted in the apocalypse - finds herself trapped in a vast, lightless cavern system. Thirty two chapters in and she’s still there, slowly exploring the environment and the magical powers she’s discovered. The development really is slow, but it’s a nice change of pace compared to some stories.

    There’s a male secondary character who gets one chapter in ten. He’s Mexican and was working in Washington state when everything changed, and he’s been traveling nonstop to get back to his family ever since. He gives us a look at what’s happening in the wider world before we go back to the MC. It’s a really clever idea and I think it works very well.

    I was making fun of myself for not realizing that you meant people could read on one or the other. Sorry!

    But...
    I'm there...

    I know what you mean though. Some people there are shameless when it comes to their exposure.

    Oh! Don't do that lol. I also sometimes phrase things weirdly. I'm fluent in both German and English (AU English), so sometimes, I just say things in an odd way haha.

    Slightly off topic, but does anyone remember that utterly plagiarized LitRPG that shamelessly lifted every single aspect of the blurb and plot from another story? I only remember it because of its female lead.

    It was Nemesis: Panguardia Online.

    I like reading up on disastrous books like this from time to time, especially to see what not to do or watch scam artists try to fleece people and then get found out. It makes me wonder if there are more like this that have slipped entirely under the radar. Considering how much of a money tree LitRPG is, though, I'm sure it would easily be discovered, but you never know and I'm almost tempted to just read through dozens of books a week to make sure like I'm some sort of thoughtpolice agent.

    There was a book recently that turned out to be a stolen copy & paste of a translated web novel. I can't remember its title or the title of the plagiarized story.

    Prolly won't be the last.
