“Wool” has me and plenty of other self-pubbed writers itching to know if serialized stories are the way to go.
Four-minute clip on AOL:
Several fascinating things: first is his long-term success as a self-published author. Second was S & S’s concession on the digital rights. I know they’re going to push the print copy hard to get a return on their investment, but seeing as most of Mr. Howey’s money was made from e-copies, that’s A LOT of money they’re waving goodbye to.
Lastly, I picked up the Omnibus a couple months ago, and while the story is solid enough, it’s nothing brilliant or original. I’m happy for the guy, glad he’s rewarded for writing what he enjoys. I mean, at the end of the day, what do I know, right? I’m not fielding big money Big House offers.
I know the story and writing needs to be decent (or sometimes not) but this rags-to-riches tale has me wondering if serialized, uncomplicated thrillers are the way to go.
