Nearly a week into the new design and I’ve put up a single post. Tch—typical.

I’ve decided once I’m done with the editing, I’ll post The Wanderer here on the website. There are a few good reasons for this. One, it’s a novella, which is a notoriously difficult genre to sell. Second, it’s a fairly straightforward zombie story, making it a niche market of a niche market of a niche market (novella–>horror–>zombie).

Finally, authors such as John Scalzi have found that putting some of their books online has helped increase their visibility among readers. Of course, having basically no readers at all, I suppose posting the story can only help, or at least, can’t hurt.

Here’s my question, though. Would people prefer getting the story in sections, or would you like to have just one long post? Any preferences?

    Hi Jasonian,

    I’d prefer it in sections as I find the long posts a bit daunting, but if it’s broken up there’s something to look forward to every day when I get into the office!

    I second Mollie’s opinion – installments, please!

  3. I also like the idea of installments, but with a twist. What if you make it a mini site of BBn, I guess like Snowmiser, so that it stands off on its own instead of looking like a regular old blog post. Maybe one of the artsy folks that peruse this place can bust out some artwork for it and I’ll help you put it together.

    Speaking of Snowmiser, dude… do you not update that on purpose. It’s like let’s do the timewarp again…

  4. Yes, I deliberately leave The Snow Miser’s Cooler all retro, for several reasons—not the least of which being that I’m a lazy, lazy man.

    The mini-blog idea is interesting. I’ll mull it over.
