Kings of The Serial Sean Platt and David Wright continue their unbroken string of weekly self publishing one book to Kindle each week with the eagerly awaited unveiling of their latest thriller, WhiteSpace.
The indie authors got their start with serialization self publishing last year’s smash-hit apocalyptic books, “Yesterday’s Gone,” and are now starting “WhiteSpace: Episode One” with a bang. Literally.
The first book opens with a school shooting in a quiet bedroom community on the fictional Hamilton Island in Washington State. The shooter is a teacher, rather than a student, and the shooting throws the island into shock. The Wire,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ and ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ so we really wanted to bring that type of weekly cliffhanger storytelling to books,” said Platt.
Unlike most book serials, which are oftentimes single books or concepts broken into serialized chunks, Platt and Wright plot their books from the beginning with serialization in mind. The books are written with a TV-show like flow, with action rising throughout the episode to a cliffhanger ending. The writers call their weekly books “episodes” ranging from 15,000 to 25,000 words each and then compile six episodes which comprise “seasons,” before moving on to the next serial.
The TV comparisons don’t end there, however.
“You know how HBO, Showtime, and AMC have pretty much redefined Sunday nights?,” said Platt. “You know there’s always going to be an awesome show or two every week?...After WhiteSpace, they’ll be getting to work on season three of “Yesterday’s Gone,” coming in June.
Platt and Wright are indie authors specializing in horror, sci-fi, paranormal, and dark fantasy, released via their indie publishing company Collective Inkwell. Learn more at http://collectiveinkwell.com
