Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Friend of the blog, and everybody’s favorite KingMidget, Mark Paxson, has wrapped up his series on Fascination and #guerrillapublishing, which he graciously ran last week. We did an extensive interview together that he broke up into three parts. If you’d like to peruse, click: Part I, Part II, or Part III. His concluding post about it all is here.
Mark and I are definitely on the same page when it comes to the state of indie publishing and how writers of literary fiction are finding it hard to galvanize a following. As Mark says, indie is loaded with genre fiction, and to toss a nice literary novel about family dynamics or something like that into the mix is like throwing a dime into the Mariana Trench.
We both think that #guerrillapublishing — my off-the-wall approach to selling Fascination — is one possible way to swim against the current. There’s not much to lose in trying it, anyway, simply because continuing to do the same thing and expect different results is the definition of insanity. I’ll be publishing my next book the usual way, so call me insane, but in the meantime I’ll at least have taken a shot at this thing with #guerrillapublishing.
One more nod of thanks to Mark, and I hope everyone will think about hopping aboard the #guerrillapublishing experiment with us.
