Breakout Writers Swinging For Their Next Self Publishing Home Run With The Young Adult Paranormal Series ForNevermore (And Free Ebook!)


Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) April 17, 2012

Authors Sean Platt and David W. Wright have already proven that weekly serialization works to drive sales and please readers with their post-apocalyptic serial Yesterdays Gone, which has generated impressive sales and over 200 5-Star reviews. Now the duo is aiming for more self publishing success with their first entry into the young adult paranormal/dark fantasy genres.

Audiences who loved The Hunger Games and Twilight will love Platt and Wright’s recently released first season of their serial, ForNevermore.

Readers who want to sample the story can get the first episode of the series free at Amazon April 17-19 2012. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007EEF3TS/

We wanted to write something that captured the magic and misery of being young, trying to find your place, and not fitting in anywhere, said Platt, who described ForNevermore as a darkly romantic fantasy horror.

ForNevermore tells the story of Noella Snow, a 17 year old who lives in two worlds. The real world where her parents are dead and she lives with her aunt in upstate New York, then her dreamworld where her father is still alive, and shes watched over by Dante, a mysterious man with a deadly touch.

As her 17th birthday approaches, Noellas dream world begins to bleed into her real world, and she starts hearing voices and seeing monsters that cant possibly be real. As Death comes to claim her, Dante saves her, saying not only is he real, but he has watched over her for hundreds of years.

Is she losing her mind? Will he have to return to Kings Point Psychiatric Hospital?

Dont let the young adult tag fool you. This is a deep, dark story, said Wright. The only thing separating this story-wise from our other fiction is a lack of sex and the language is PG-13. But the scares, plot twists, and crazy cliffhanger endings our readers love are all there! We love how the first season turned out in its weekly form, and are thrilled to publish the full season.

Platt and Wright are looking to become Kings of the Serial this year with a publishing schedule of one book, short story, or episode per week in 2012. They treat their serials like TV shows, writing in six week blocks, with each episode ranging from 11,000 to 25,000 words in length. Each episode sells for .99 during its season. After all six episodes of a given season are out, they compile all six episodes into a Season Compilation, which sells in one low-priced book.

The duo says that offering readers a choice of either buying the serials in weekly doses or waiting for the whole season book has been one of the keys to their success.

Yesterdays Gone: Season Two returned in January for its second smash season, running six straight weeks into February. They followed with the debut of ForNevermore in February. Theyll be returning to adult horror with their newest series, WhiteSpace, a sci-fi horror serial, on May 1.

You know how HBO, Showtime, and AMC all have awesome must-see TV week after week? We want to be the HBO, Showtime, or AMC of the Kindle world, where no matter what, you know well have something awesome for you, every Tuesday, said Platt.

Bestselling Author Sean Platt Murders Wildly Successful Blog to Launch Self Publishing Startup, Sterling & Stone


Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) April 03, 2012

For the last three years Sean Platt has run the successful blog, Ghostwriter Dad, where he has delivered on the promise to help, “good writers make a great living.” Self-publishing has been good to Sean Platt, and he wants to be good to the writing community around him. Ghostwriter Dad is dead, long live The Digital Writer.

After spending three years as a ghostwriter, Sean Platt has written it all: memoirs, fiction, sales letters, info products, and everything in between. He co-founded the publishing imprint, Collective Inkwell in 2009, and finished out last year with the bestselling title, serialized fiction title, Yesterday’s Gone,.

Modeling their serialized fiction after superbly scripted television such as LOST, Breaking Bad, and the Soprano’s, and referring to their books as “episodes” and “seasons,” Sean and his creative partner, David Wright, had the format working better than it had since Dickens, or at least since Stephen King’s The Green Mile.

They have since gone on to publish Yesterday’s Gone Season II, the Twilight Zone inspired, Dark Crossings, the YA paranormal title, ForNevermore, and the upcoming alien abduction thriller, White Space.

After seeing the firsthand success of serialized fiction at Collective Inkwell, Sean co-founded Sterling & Stone with his partners, Lori Taylor and Matt Gartland taking the serialization concept and applying it to non-fiction, starting with production of three short, specific, high quality titles per week.

The Digital Writer isnt just the name of Sean’s new website, it’s also the title of the first set of books the company is publishing. Sean plans to give away a new Digital Writer title to his audience each week so he can help them “get smarter faster.”

Sean says he had to “murder Ghostwriter Dad” because the old site couldn’t help writers the way he wanted. The Digital Writer is built from the ground up for modern writers who are willing to work hard and smart so they can write themselves the best possible future.

Sean says that after years of struggle, he wanted more for modern writers who didn’t want to struggle like he has.

“Ive written keyword articles for $ 5 and sales letters for thousands. Ive run niche micro-blogs, and blogs for half-billion dollar companies. Ive ghostwritten books Ill never be able to claim, and been fortunate enough to see my name with a #1 beside it. I lost my house, nearly drowned in debt, and wrote until my fingers wouldnt work without my wife rubbing them back to life….

…But only so we could put our children in a school we could have only dreamed of a few years earlier, make enough money to buy my unlimited creative freedom, and use my fingers to write only what I truly want to write. But thats what being an entrepreneur is living a few years of your life like most people would never dare, so you can spend the rest of your life living like most people never will.”

Sean promises “EPIC” content once per week, and has added a free Member Area to the site where users can get exclusive access to free eCourses, video trainings, and special Q&A’s, along with printables and worksheets for each of The Digital Writer books.

In an Internet swimming in a sea of sameness, with millions of blogs that simply come and go, The Digital Writer promises to be something truly special.
