An old form for a new format?
Here’s my question: Do the three elements of ebook format, people’s hectic lifestyles, and shorter attention spans combine to favor serialized stories? As a reader, do you have a preference, or have there been times in your life where one was more convenient? Do you find yourself curling up with a big trade paperback, (Name of the Wind. Thanks, K.) but devouring shorts on your Kindle or Nook?
I’m asking because my other current project, Drop City, has reached a suitable juncture in the overall story-arc. There are a couple more segments in the pipeline, but Part One is done.
I’m thinking of releasing this portion as a novella, then moving onto the next part with releases every 6-8 months until it’s finished. Any insight or suggestions on this?
