AndrewStirlingMacDonald posted a topic in Entertainment DiscussionI published this post on my blog, and I wonder if people agree with my idea, or have other perspectives or ideas to offer. The TL;DR is basically that I wish fantasy series had special editions published that cut out all of the "recap" exposition in the sequels so that it doesn't drag the narrative down for people who are reading the whole series one-book-after-another. http://www.andrewstirlingmacdonald.com/2016/05/your-favorite-epic-fantasy-series-im.html
Hello everyone, In Episode 9.1 Brandon mentions that the most common path for writers to break into the market is by first publishing shorter works and garnering attention before publishing their first novel. I was wondering whether there was any episode where they talked in more detail about publishing short fiction. (Maybe in one of the Microcastings?) I have listened to the publishing episodes, but they focused on full novels and I imagine that you wouldn't try to contact publishers with just a couple of short stories. Added difficulty: I don't live in the US and I'm not familiar with any regular fiction publications. Thanks in advance for any help / pointers. Cheers, Helge
