I'd like to run something by you, lovely people.
I'm planning on blogging my ENTIRE third novel, Thaw.
The novel consists of Ruth's diary over three months as she decides whether or not she wants to carry on living.
Ruth's diary starts on March 1st, and the paperback of the book is out on February the 1st next year. I'd be blogging the book, one day per day, one month after the book comes out and over the next three months.
Here's how the blog will look.
So what do you think? Would you be interested in reading an entire novel in this fashion? Might you be tempted to buy the book rather than wait for the rest of the story to appear? Have you heard anything about authors that give away books 'for free'? Would it be better to just blog the first month or two? (that feels mean to me)
I'd be really interested in your feedback.
PS the photo is Maggi Hambling's Scallop (2003) in Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast, which is important to the climax of the novel...
PPS I have checked this out with my lovely publishers at Snowbooks. It would have been naughty not to.
PPPS many thanks to the lovely jem of - the sound of splinters - for making the little pictures for me - she's offered to make me three months worth - hurray for jem.
