Jayne Ann Krentz publishes her novel on Twitter

Tell Me a Story - comment.

Most writers get frustrated at not being able to publish their work. I've been incredibly lucky to have mine in print, but it wasn't always like that. If you're struggling, here's a novel way of getting your book out there..... If you find it useful or encouraging, please give me a thumbs up on Stumble, Digg or whatever Social Bookmark site you use....

Jayne Ann Krentz, a New York Times best selling novelist is transporting one of her popular characters, private investigator, Fallon Jones, to cell phones and laptops of readers everywhere.

Jayne Ann Krentz about to launch novel on Twitter.

Looking for ways of reaching new readers, Jayne Ann had already dismissed Twitter as a way to tell people what she is ‘doing right now’’ as being far too boring –I have to agree. I’ve only just started exploring Twitter, and as far as I can see most people tweet shit.

However, instead of writing about what she’s doing, Jayne is taking her tweets and publishing a micro-novel, 140 characters at a time.

Wow! Talk about a serialized novel…. This has to be the ultimate in bite sized reading….. I might consider doing it myself if I get sufficient followers on ajbarnett …
