So I plan to have the first three installments of my “Surveillance Pre-dystopia” series, about 60K words, available on October 1.
You’ll have the choice of individual novellas (about 20K words each) or the bundle of three, which will be at a discount to buying them individually.
I’m doing this for three reasons.
The first: I like writing this way (for now). The second: I want to give readers a choice between the shorter and longer reads. The third: I want to test the “Literary Bomb”, AKA the “Lilliana Nirvana Technique”, but I don’t want to hold off on 300K words to do it.
Let me ‘splain…no, there is too much…let me sum up.
If this technique is supposed to send your discoverability through the roof, the size of your work should have less to do with it than the function of carpet bombing the interwebs with said work.
So, I’m going to simultaneously release 4 items this month (#1, #2, #3 and 1-3 bundled). I’ll shoot for 5 simultaneously released titles in November (#4, #5, #6, 4-6 and 1-6 bundled), then do #7, #8, #9,and 7-9 in December. 1-9 might go up as well, but that’s gonna cost $15, so maybe not right away.
So that will be 4 products in October, 5 in November and 4 or 5 in December.
I’ll let you know what happens. December 2014 & January 2015 sales will tell me if this works. If it does, I might just keep doing it this way. If not, back to the drawing board.
I’ll show you the covers for the first four products next week.
Until then, be safe and be well.
