SMS Novel - 2018

My name is Jomo K. Johnson and I am the proud creator of SMS Novel. Thank you so much for visiting. I started SMS (Short Message Service) in 2018 as a Live-Text Novel Library. During a missionary trip, I felt extremely isolated and wanted to connect with others via writing. I decided to experiment with live-text chat fictions stories as a way to connect with people in real-time. These stories developed into a library by which readers could select a story, connect with dozens of authors in realtime, and roleplay the story. 

Since our initial launch, we have published hundreds of live-text stories while also expanding to offer Zoom Novels & Movies, On-Demand Improv, Group Book Services, and more. It is our goal to connect the hearts of readers and writers together, all via the age-old art of storytelling. We hope you join our community of hundreds of authors, actors & readers. Let's connect.
