Ciara Grey and Lee Masterson began Fiction Factor
together after noticing that there were no ezines
dedicated solely to the craft of writing fiction (at that
time). Almost all other writing ezines and magazines try
to cater to all writers across quite a broad specturm.
They simply wanted to cater for the fiction writing niche
and be able to help new writers to learn a little about
the publishing world and improve their writing at the
Since the original Fiction Factor ezine began, it has
grown immensely, attracting tens of thousands of visitors
every month and gaining the support and friendship of
many people along the way.
The original ezine has undergone some major changes, and
we have since expanded to become the Fiction Factor Group
- which includes 7 new sister sites aside from the
original Fiction Factor; Fantasy Factor, Sci-Fi Factor, Children's
FictionFactor, Romance Factor, Horror Factor, Christian Fiction
Factor and Erotica Factor.
More recently, the Fiction Factor Group launched a new
ezine, focused entirely on Freelance Writing. In keeping
with the "factor" theme, we appropriately named
the new ezine "Freelance Factor".
Both Tina and Lee have had work accepted and published in
many publications - both online and offline - all around
the world. This includes fiction and non-fiction writing.
Their non-fiction articles on writing can also be found
on many websites. You can read their individual author
bios here: Staff
Many of the ideas for articles come from emails we
receive from readers. We also have our own forum, where we also try
to address problems or questions from our readers. If a
reader asks a question about writing or publishing or
book promotion, we will do our best to research the
information and present it as quickly as possible as a
new article. The forum is also a great
place to meet other people who understand the life of a
writer - so come and join us on the forum today!
The four staff members of the Fiction Factor Group
proudly offer the ezines free to the public, but we gain
our funding by way of sales of writing-related products
shown throughout the sites and newsletters. (so don't
forget to help us keep Fiction Factor free to the public
by supporting our excellent sponsors!) The staff do what
they do for the love of writing - but most importantly,
for the amazingly helpful insights they also receive into
their own individual writing careers.

Fiction Factor has won many awards for its contributions
to the literary field - including being a Writer's Digest
Top 101 site (2001, 2003, 2004,2005,2006). The site has
also featured on many other writing sites, in one form or

One side-effect of running a popular website and ezine is
the added notoriety the four editors have received. Not
only do editors take their writing work more seriously
now, but other writers are keen to learn more about how
they did it, what they write and why they do it.

As the ladies publish electronic magazines,
it seemed silly to ignore the idea of electronic book
publishing. So Lee ventured into the world of electronic
publishing to test the waters. Those waters were more
than fine and now the ladies are happy advocates of
e-publishing. You can see Lee's and Tina's ebooks here: Ebooks
Aside from working on Fiction Factor, Tina
and Ciara write as a partnership - one they call Stygian
Writings. All work produced from their collaboration
comes under this banner. They have their own personal
space on the 'net, too, away from the pressures of
Fiction Factor. Check it out!
