How to use Booklly?

Booklly is very intuitive and user friendly platform. Strictly speaking one page follows the other as it goes with normal books. The only difference is when an author decides to take another turn in the story and starts writing a new branch – in that case you continue with reading/writing within that branch. But you can still skip between branches, of course, to stay on the same page :)

Cover - Every story has to start somewhere. Cover is the starting point, the very first page. Upload a beautiful background image to set the mood of your story.

Page - A page is a part of a story, a single piece of text author can contribute to any story. It has some limitations regarding the number of characters per page though – we have to give an equal opportunity to everybody.

Branch - If you decide to continue a story on a page that already has other pages, you will be starting your own/new branch. This is a great opportunity for you to turn a plot in the desired direction, and with some luck (and skill) the other writers will follow and continue. And so will the readers, of course!

Reading

Reading is a very fun part of BOOKLLY or better yet: reading mode is, to be more exact. Why? Because if the part of a story that you are reading has more than one branch, the next page will be provided based on the reading mode you have chosen. It's that simple – by selecting one of the available modes you are in control of your story experience!

Even more than that! All the recommendations on the site will also be generated based on your preferred reading experience.

Popular - This is the default reading mode (Even if you are not logged in) and will select only the most popular pages of the story.

New - This mode will display pages based on the date of their creation. Here you'll find fresh and new content display.

Discover - Feeling adventurous? This mode will pick a new page at random from all the existing branches at that point of the story..

Cover stats

The pretty cover image that gives you the basic idea or narrative of the story also contains some quite useful information about the story itself. Icons symbolize as follows:
