Question

I'm new the on going of being an author, but I do have a question? How long does it usually take for a pending approval to be approved for a story submission? I'm sure this is covered somewhere but I seem to have missed it somewhere. Will someone answer this for me?

Welcome to the madhouse.

Usually a story posts in 3 days but, yes, there is always a butt.

Lately is is tending to five day because of the Holidays we presume. But, again with the butt, being a brand new shiny author, Laurel, the lady who checks all the stories will give you a closer look. so, figure on 6 at present.

Stories take a few days to be approved on this site, it can vary a bit. Other threads below do ask about this and one thing you have to be careful of is not to keep going and checking on your pending and pressing submit again, as this moves you to the back of the queue.

Welcome to the Hangout! I really like it here, it's lots of fun (although there are some stra-ange people. If anyone's answer seems a bit odd, check their other posts and you soon learn to see if there's a kind of pattern to them).

TXRad is really nice, (even if he really is a dirty old man), gives good advice and is secretly very supportive.
By the way, I have a blog about erotic writing with a post on it about e publishing if you are new to all of the different sites:

Hi and welcome.

There is a somewhat outdated FAQ located at this link.

For story submissions, it says:
Quote:
This depends on how many stories we're currently receiving. We try to balance it so that submissions are posted as quickly as possible without overloading the reader and possibly burying your story. A story submitted to Literotica through the procedure outlined above generally will be posted to Lit within 3-7 days.
It's been noted at other threads that it's been taking something like five days for stories to post. There is only one person, Laurel, who vets and posts the stories, and so during contests or holidays or any high-volume time, it may take longer.

Then stick around and learn. There are some very good people here, plus a troll or two. It won't take you long to sort them out.

Once your story posts, remember to stick a link in your signature so the lazy people can find it.

Thumbs up

Drop me a PM or email when it comes out! If it has safe sex, I will consider reviewing it on my Feminist Erotica blog.

Naoko, you should probably edit your post to remove the email. It's against forum rules to put that in, so a moderator may remove it anyway. Just FYI.

So he's kind of the AH's version of Viagra.

I stick to just trolling a couple of "good friends" and pointing out site foibles. I'm more like cialis so you can be ready when you need to be.

A huge backlog of stories seems to have come out the last couple of days. Mine had only been submitted for 4 days, and there were quite a lot of stories above it in EC (at least 13). Though I don't know if that means they were submitted later. Maybe they just get put on in random order, once they are approved.
