“Rapid Release is frequently bandied about these days. Most frequently for writers who have dived into being Independent publishers. But many of us with backlists went Indie with reprints, so we already have a foothold in two places if we’re still pursuing traditional publication as well.

But traditional publication doesn’t promise “rapid release”, mostly because there are so many small companies picking up the slack the large traditional companies have left available, and editing, cover creation, formatting, as well as office overhead means each traditionally published title, even those not offered in paper editions, is high. Rapid Release isn’t something they can afford to do in the manner we might like. Which means, we need to do it ourselves.

In this 4-week workshop we’ll talk creating new shorter series to release independently to achieve the Rapid Release benefit – which is keeping our readers primed, reading, and eagerly hitting those Pre-Order buttons. We’ll also talk formatting of books, cover creation, and everything else that goes into getting these stories ready to load to Amazon as Shorts or Quick Reads or lined up with pre-order buttons. We’ll consider Vella, too. But FIRST, we’ll talk what to put into a rapid release system of our own.”
