I suppose most people would announce the release of an ebook on the day it actually came out, but I’ve never been one for following the crowd. Given that my marketing plan as an indie author involves writing a lot more before I focus on promoting my work, the release of my first story was really rather anti-climactic, anyway. More of a fun project for kicks than a serious attempt at world domination. Like sticking my toe into the giant pool of publishing.
That said, I felt like talking about my story today, so here I am.
So is it a book or what?
You may notice that I’ve been saying “story” and not “book” or “novel”. That’s because the story clocks in at about 17,000 words — just short of novella length and nowhere near the length of a full novel.
The Author Collector was a fun story to write. This story is more along the lines of Ray Bradbury’s or Arthur C. Clarke’s collections of shorter works. It’s long for a “short story” but just about right to read in one sitting if you have a couple of hours. It is only available in ebook format at the moment. It’s free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
