Self Publishing short stories
« on: March 12, 2017, 11:32:07 AM »
So, while working on my larger novel I realised that there were a lot of side characters that i wanted to explore further, but couldn't do so within the novel.

I figured, why not write each one their own little short story between 5-10000 words which i could then self-publish as e-books in a series that would (hopefully...oh so hopefully) create awareness/buzz around the future novel that i could then pitch to an agent (or self publish again)

Any thoughts on this? Pitfalls to watch out for etc?
If less is more, just think about how much more more would be!
