Serialization Project

The article I highlighted in "Oops, I lied" about how not to market mentioned how we should not tell people how good our writing and books are, but show them.

I decided to dive into serialization of my novella, A Reason to Hope. Not here though. I have another blog which I will use for that purpose.

Monday I will add chapter one, and continue through to the end (thirteen chapters total). You can read the back cover copy and the small incentive to encourage readers now at almarquardt.blogspot.com.

After all, readers read because they receive something in return. It doesn’t have to be tangible, but in this case it is.

I think it’ll be fun.

In the meantime, here I’ll talk about what I’m learning from Donald Maass’s book Writing the Breakout Novel.
