Self Publishing Discussion / Re: Short Stories for Marketing (and fun!)
« on: February 26, 2018, 02:07:57 PM »
I've written several novels. While a few of them have come close to attracting an agent for publication, none of them have quite made it across the finish line. More recently I switched to distributing a pair of serialized fiction projects digitally (website, Patreon page, mailing list, etc.). Growth is slow, but it's already gotten more reaction than any of the novels ever did.

Website: www.mcqueenserialfantasy.com

So I guess, in short, distributing shorter fiction has certainly served me well as a means to build a brand and keep the creative juices flowing day-to-day. My hope is to use the serial platform as a launchpad for larger and more mainstream publications.

Sadly, marketing will always be a pain. It's a process of slow, incremental steps forward. I don't think there's any way around that.

While I've written books, releasing original work incrementally has proven much more successful, though it is still a long-term, growth project, as others have pointed out. The only downside is it requires a huge amount of disciplined writing on a deadline schedule.


This really sounds like a lot of work!

It is, but I also happen to like serialized writing, so I'm biased :-P

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Re: Magically mutable worlds

Ian McDonald wrote a book called "Evolution's Shore" that really explores the concept of heroes getting involved in environmental change in a way that goes beyond causing or trying to stop it. The story really works because in the narrative, the heroes are faced with an environmental change that threatens to change, but not destroy, their way of life. It also can't be stopped. As a result, they're forced to move through the story trying to explore, understand, and cope with what's happening, rather than taking on a more classically decisive role. It's science fiction though.
