So here’s an odd thought. I am working on this new novel and having fun with it and all and … I see people doing kickstarter and such and I wonder:
Should I finish the novel (I mean I am in the very early stages of it here) and:
A) Look for traditional publishing for it
B) Kickstarter the novel, now/soon and go from there
C) Release it for free on-line and hope for donations
There are plusses and minuses to each of these. And I’m not sure what to do, here. I am a big fan of trying new ways of getting stuff out there. But I also feel like most people don’t read fiction on-line. So C feels like the weakest idea. A is the safest, of course. And B? Well… B is unknown territory.
I don’t know. I really don’t. What are your thoughts on all of this, I’m curious…
Would you fund something like this / pay for it / spread the word / give a crap? What are your gut feelings about all of this?
