It's still up? Wow...
Oh, okay not for sale. Mark of shame...
Please tell me amazon pulled it out...
Good grief, this is the first I’m hearing of it. Passing off someone else’s webnovel as your own has been happening long enough that it’s damn near respectable, and it’s pretty easy to get away with if you’re at all careful. Plagiarizing a popular book and then selling it on the same damn site, on the other hand, is ridiculous. I mean, yeah, Amazon has a ton of books, but not really all that many litrpgs when you get right down to it.
And taking the time to actually rewrite the story and change identifying details is even more work. Putting up,a verbatim copy to make whatever money you can before disappearing is one thing, but I wonder how much money this thief made compared to how much effort they went to? Seems to me it’d’ve been easier just to actually write a suspiciously similar book instead of plagiarizing. There’s any number of those out there and they tend to get away with it.
Yeah, Amazon pulled the stolen webnovel one very fast, thankfully. It did pick up a decent review before it went away. It was this one:
Growth Cheat TOC was the original. Apparently, the translator notes were still included. Lazy ass thief.
To add to some of the books above:
KT hasn't mentioned it yet, but her book came out last week! Somnia Online
Blaise Corvin has a female lead in Mitigating Risk (Nora Hazard).
Kevin McLaughlin's series has one: Valhalla Online
(and now for the shameless plug )
My book has a female main character as well: Temple of Sorrow
I have some more to add but need to collect a little sunshine before the weekend is over.
Thanks, @Carrie Summers !
I have a female elf mage in Tower of Gates, but she's not the only MC.
Good to have you here with us.
Awwww Carrie I Heart you!
I read Temple of Sorrow about a week ago. I really enjoyed it!
Well, if you don't mind something less crunchy (no stats/stat tables), my ongoing project over on RR has a female MC.
Deck of Souls is a mix of GameLit, Portal Fantasy, and Romantic Fantasy. More focused on characters, their interactions, and growth.
I will be publishing it eventually, but for now it is in the alpha/beta stage and thus up on on RR. Haven't decided if I will also be posting on BB or Wattpad, yet.
If you need help with Book Brawl, I might know a guy that knows a guy that secretly is a guy. I mean, by definition there's guys. But that's not what I mean.
Freehaven Online: Dragonsbane was released within the last week. The MC is a woman who plays a half-elf tank.
I am totally following this thread!! If any more female MC books pop out~
I really enjoyed Temple of Sorrows, a smart character who solves her problems with intelligence and smarts, not brute force and dues ex sprinkles is rare in any genre. I'm looking forward to the next one. Also, not YA, which for me is a big bonus.
I now have a bunch to dive into and review on the ol' blog!!
I cannot wait to see more female MC works (and finish my own, instead of cruising in the forums all day)
Just finished Temple of Sorrows the other day. Loved it. Well written, well paced, and Greel is just a great supporting character.
Yeah, Temple Of Sorrows was a great read. Couple other female MCs:
Late Night At Lind’s By BethLyons on Royal Road. A mild mannered dental hygienist is pulled into a D&D world.
A Living Dungeon by Allan Joyal. Dungeon story where the dungeon spirit is a human(ish) girl.
Ancient Dreams series by Benjamin Medrano. Mostly standard fantasy, but several main characters are female and one is in charge of a dungeon that plays an important role in the plot.
Dungeon Masters by Mike Wild. No litrpg elements at all, but has a female MC trying to figure out and survive an immense dungeon in China. One of the only stories I’ve seen where a dungeon shows up in the modern world.
I'll check out the Dungeon Masters one, a dungeon in a modern world sounds like a fantastic blend of genres! Very different.
If I'm remembering it right, there was a handwave about modern technology not working inside the dungeon. So the modern aspects to it really fall by the wayside as the book goes on.
Speedrunner (the Tower of Babel series) is set in a modern(ish) society, but doesn't feature a female MC. Rather, it has quite a few strong female characters, but the primary MC is a guy.
Stork Tower series by Tony Corden is very good and has a female lead
on the webnovel side, there's Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? (I'm a Spider, So What?)
My book, Stormbane, has a very strong female lead. It also takes the odd potshot at gamer sexism.
I have two books out in the Accidental Champion trilogy with a strong female MC. I wrote it for my daughters.
Book one is here, Accidental Duelist. Book 2 just came out with book three to follow this fall. I hope you enjoy them.
