My GS got hooked on the Jack Sparrow as a teenager serial novels. He loved them. It's what started him reading.
I think serializing might make it an easier sell. The Sparrow books all had an end to the current story, but a continuing story ran through all of them.AndreSanThomas said:Rice Krispies, Frosted Flakes... oh, the other kind! (I crack myself up).
Well, I guess you could try it. It seems to me like you're mixing two tough sells there that would probably make sales harder, but maybe it is just off enough that it would really catch a devoted fan base.
hmm... is that a serial or a series?Gertie Kindle 'a/k/a Margaret Lake' said:I think serializing might make it an easier sell. The Sparrow books all had an end to the current story, but a continuing story ran through all of them.
some kids will have the patience to read a serialCEMartin2 said:Jack Sparrow sounds like a series.
Yes, I could serialize my pulp parody, breaking it into segments. Or I could do it as a novella/mg novel then write sequels in a series.
My question is, do kids have the patience to read a novel broken up in installments a week at a time?
Uh, yeah, I kinda guessed that. Was wondering if anyone had successfully serialized a book (breaking it into smaller, time released sections) for kids. I don't want to be the first to try.tipsy telstar said:no matter what you do, some people will be happy, some will not and some will just want the surprise at the bottom of the crackerjack box.
