As the weather turns colder, even here in the desert, I'm thinking of publishing a nice little short story for the holidays. I have loads of ideas, but wonder if it's worth doing. Oh not financially, just for exposure. So I decided I'll do a survey. Here, on my blog, and then on Twitter and possibly Facebook too. I really want to know.
Do you enjoy short holiday themed stories? Do you enjoy short stories at all? Would you pay for it? Or would you rather see it on the blog as a gift? Would you share it and help a poor writer out? Or would you just read it, enjoy it, and move on? So many questions about this.
Ultimately, I may or may not heed the advice of my readers and followers. Ultimately I'll probably write the story that's in my head and ignore the whole marketing angle entirely.
Writing for me isn't about the money, clearly. Though the ability to pay bills is always a bonus.
So here you go:
Would you like to see a short holiday story in this blog?
If I published one on Amazon would you pay 99¢ to read it?
Comment below or, as many of you do, just email me! I'd love to hear from you.
