Again in The Guardian, author Ray Connolly explains why he is publishing his latest novel chapter by chapter, online, and free:
With one digital bound, I've become an entrepreneur. There'll be an iPod version later, for those who want to listen to it being read, and of course there will be Facebook and Twitter links. Having begun this new career as an ePublisher, I feel empowered. As a one man band, I have nothing to lose.
Apart from the time spent writing The Sandman, the other costs have been relatively small. And for the first time in my writing career – and I've written movies, TV series, radio plays, short stories and several novels – I'm in total control. It's an experiment, obviously, but I'm enjoying it.
