Making Scary Decisions for the Right Reasons

If I said I wasn't nervous, I'd be lying.


Tomorrow the first paywalled instalment of I Am Allegra Bartlett goes live and it's a nerve-wracking experience. Putting something behind a paywall isn't something I contemplated doing until recently, but I do believe it's the best way of publishing Allegra and making sure I give her the attention she deserves over the time it takes to tell her story properly.


With most books, you write it and it's done. Even with books in a series, you move from one on to the next and the next and (eventually) it's done. There's usually time between releases and time to compartmentalise what you're working on. A serial like I Am Allegra Bartlett leaves no room for that.

Whether it's writing/rewriting/editing the main story or working on the supplementary material, there's always something to be doing and it's an ongoing commitment. As I've explained before, a project like this is susceptible to real-time feedback and there's a lot to be said for being able to react to what readers want in the same way a soap opera can offer some wish fulfilment for viewers. That's what I want I Am Allegra Bartlett to do.


But, I have to admit, it is still very scary as the sole author.


If you haven't read the first (free) instalment of I Am Allegra Bartlett, you can do so by clicking here. If you like it, consider signing up to my newsletter and get a discount link to get the first six months half price. That offer's only available to subscribers!


Hopefully I'll see you on the other side of the paywall.
