I just found out recently that there's an insane amount of Chinese internet novels out there. Basically, they're self-published novels online that are kind of similar to light novels. Here's a Time article on them, but I can't find too much about these novels in English:

Bu Bu Jing Xin (made into a popular drama a couple of years ago) is an example that I can think of off the top of my head.

Is anyone a fan of these? It would be cool to see these novels make an impact outside of China, but I'd imagine that it would be really difficult. Even Japanese light novels that are adapted into popular anime have trouble making it big in places like the U.S.

If you're a fan, feel free to recommend some novels!
