Cheyanne Asks Chris, Drew and Jim About Web Serials

1 year ago | Jim Zoetewey (Moderator)

I've deliberately avoided promoting the Pen and Cape Society podcast here because it's mostly about superhero stuff and directed towards readers (we hope). This particular episode is actually Cheyanne Young (an indie ebook author who's interested in starting a web serial) asking Christopher Wright (Ubersoft), Drew Hayes, and I about our experiences.

Thus, it might actually be something people here would find interesting.

    Well sure, it's a fun podcast with lots of neat points, but can you not shut that Drew guy up some of the time? Yeesh :-D

    Just so you know, I did find it interesting. Particularly the diverse viewpoints. If anyone out there was initially intimidated by the length, the web serial experience portion was in the first 45 minutes. And to Tintenteufel who was recently asking here about edits, that was one of the things they talked about.

    (Granted, I found some of the cliffhanger stuff at the end of the show interesting too, as it kind of resonated with me. I split my first season for T&T into two books, as a 46-parter felt a tad excessive, when all the parts are 3,000 words.)

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was fun to do, and so far it's been one of our best received episodes--at least in the sense of numbers visiting the podcast's page.

    That's a little bit of a surprise in that it's a more writer focused episode than I generally prefer. In my opinion, the podcast should generally be pointed toward potential readers. On the other hand, potential readers are probably interested in how things work behind the scenes. Plus, it might introduce somebody to the fact that web serials exist.
