Lessons learned from my latest SF trilogy
Those of you interested in the art, craft and science of writing may find my latest article at Mad Genius Club interesting. It's titled "Lessons learned from a trilogy, Part 2: the impact on sales of rapid releases, and other factors", and is the second in a two-part series analyzing what I've learned from launching my "Cochrane's Company" trilogy at four-week intervals. (The first article, published a month ago, may be found here, if you missed it.)
When reading the article (and its predecessor), note the comments from other readers at Mad Genius Club. Many of them are also authors, or serious fans of the genres in which we all write. That whole blog is a collective exercise in learning to write better books. We all try to keep each other informed of what we're doing, how we're doing it, and what results we're obtaining. It's like an ongoing master class in writing. Recommended reading, if you're interested in the subject.
