E-EPILOGUES AND OTHER QUIRKS

Oops, almost forgot it’s Tuesday. Two days of gorgeous weather has obviously addled my gardener’s brain.  All that wonderful new landscaping outside my office window is just begging me to come play.

          Which means my mischief Muse is on the loose and my curiosity is roaming around, looking for trouble. The other Wenches are probably ducking for cover as they read these words.  I’ve already stirred up scandal by asking for fantasies, thumbed my nose at corsets, and sneered at all the intellectualizing with which the educated among us insist on sprinkling this blog.  (and I even used “with which” grammatically for the gurus among us, even though—despite editorial ignorance—ending a sentence with a preposition is perfectly legitimate unless one speaks Latin)

        I shall attempt to pretend at professionalism.  This is, after all, a promotional website of sorts, so I’m totally interested in promotion. On slow days, anyway.Smileydevil

I told my editor that I wanted to write epilogues for my Malcolms and Ives, little novellas showing how the children are growing up and what mischief their wyrdness might get them into. Sure, I can do it on my website, but that costs me money since I’m a techno-idiot and can’t speak html.  I could do it here, but that would be at the expense of my fellow Wenches, and they’re likely to throw plum puddings in my direction. Which would likely cause an unpleasant and messy war when I struck back with brickbats.

          So, strictly in the interest of professional curiosity, how many readers would be willing to pay money for an e-epilogue (short story) if a publisher produced one? And how much money, if any, would one be willing to pay for words that can only be read on a computer or printed from one? Given the cost of paper books these days, e-books may be our main alternative in the not-too-distant future, so don’t immediately cringe at the suggestion.  Think about it. Let me know.            

Pat, off to hide with the gnomes under the mushrooms

  1. I think e-books would be great if they made a standard version of an e-reader or I could figure out what benefits and drawbacks each has. It would certainly solve one of my biggest problems: what to do with the 1000s of books I have with no spot to put them. I’d certainly get rid of the “naggers” who are constantly telling me to “get rid of your books”.

  4. Pat,
    The question of e-epilogues is an interesting one. Has anyone heard how the Julia Quinn e-epilogues are doing? I suppose once one publisher takes the plunge, everyone will do it — but it certainly would be a cool way to “catch up” on the characters from past books.
    And, of course, I want to know if that flaming fireball with the wicked grimace and horns is your Muse, or your garden gnome.

  7. I’m an IT person… I sit for 8-10 hours a day staring at a computer. I don’t want to do it for R&R. I also read in bed to relax before sleeping, and it’s just not quite as cosy with the CPU and monitor in there with me. 🙂 I could print it out of course, but why wouldn’t I go and buy something that’s bound and the pages don’t go everywhere?
    Sorry, color me sour grapes on this one although I do understand the reasoning behind it….
    However, I will (and have) purchased audio books.

  10. SmartBitches had a big yack-fest about the JQ’s $2 epi-epilogues last week. Some people hated the idea, some felt gouged, others loved it. Reactions ran the full gamut. The idea doesn’t really appeal to me (as a reader), though I do like seeing prologues and epilogues that got cut when they’re posted to my favorite author’s websites. I can’t say I’d never buy an epi-epilogue, though. I’ve bought both of Bernard Cornwall’s Sharpe’s novellas, and those cost me $8 each (but they were chapbooks, not e-books).

  13. Not sure. I think I’d buy anything from my favorite authors. I’ve bought e-books, and thought of the usefulness of them IF I could have printed out HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE in the Milan airport before boarding an Alitalia flight where they wouldn’t let my children (11 and 15) play electronic games on a ten hour flight.
    I told my children to watch the movie… it was… BE COOL, rated R.
    Of course, HPATHBP was on sale in Milan–just out that day–but only in Italian. In retrospect, I should have bought it… and asked the flight attendants (the mean people who wouldn’t let my children play electronic games) to translate for them.
    Otherwise it was a wonderful holiday.

  16. Not a stocker, but…
    I’m trying to figure out where you live by the deciduous trees in your yard.
    Juniper on the ground. You have a fair amount of shade, which means a lot of water (lake, river or rain… or all of the above)
    One story house. Could be east coast, BUT, the basement (if there is one) is low, definitely fully underground. Or, is that a basement window cover to the left of the patio?
    Not a high-peaked roof, so lots of snow.
    East coast or mid-west is my best guess.

  19. From Pat Rice:
    can’t the devil be both my muse and my gnome? both me, of course.
    I’m not fond of the idea of books I have to read on a computer after sitting at one all day, but I think I could reconcile myself to a handheld if the screen was adjustable and could be seen outdoors.
    I’ll have to check JQ’s site and see what kind of e-book her publisher is talking about. The big question with any of these is what kind of equipment reads it and how do you prevent people from copying the material. Don’t know how her publisher solved these questions.
    Harry Potter on a handheld! Just imagine how much easier that would be to hold.
    but as to charging for epilogues…still haven’t decided on that. Maybe an anthology of epilogues in book format!
    No juniper. Japanese maples, coral bells (heuchera), creeping jenny, shrub roses,a few golden cypress, some boxwood, all just recently installed since the place had no landscaping, and I can’t live without gardens or privacy.
    And I think the chipmunks ate the gnome. pity the devil can’t scare them off. do they eat roots? (the critters, not devils) I’ve never had chipmunks before.
    If you’re into trees, Cathy, I’ll have to take a picture of the fascinating ash tree outside my office. no one ever trimmed it and it has mile long branches. gorgeous, but deadly.
    We just moved from the East Coast (sob) to St Louis, so you got it. But at least we get full basements here. Lots of room for storage.

  25. I just bought the JQ epilogues, after hearing about them when she guestblogged on Squawk Radio. I got them in PDF so I could open them on any computer. I like the idea of second epilogues in general, if they’re fairly short – JQ’s are 30 pages. It’s just… sweet to know how things go 10 or 20 years down the road.
    I tend to prefer to hold actual paper when I read things, but these are so short I won’t mind reading them on the computer. I don’t quite see how you could produce them in paperback format and make $$. I don’t think Stephen King’s The Green Mile was all that popular in its original serial format (the book was popular, the format not so much). I think it would be a profitable little sideline for writers AND publishers to have a “second epilogue e-story” page where all second epilogues for their current books in print could be posted.
    I would also be very happy with an audio version, but suspect that would cost more than the $1.59 I paid for JQ’s. I would probably max out at about $2 for an e-epilogue. Unlikely to go to $4 or $5. I’m already getting testy about the larger format paperbacks, especially the ones that are just taller versions of the traditional paperbacks. “Formatted for easier reading” ha. “Formatted taller so we can charge you more” is more accurate.
    Of course the Word Wenches’ books in any format are a gift to your readers :). I’m complaining about other authors’ suddenly tall books.

  31. All the Bridgerton novels are among my keepers, but I have not bought the epilogues. I had planned to do so because I thought, short as they are, I could print them for reading. But then I learned that Acrobat (the format I would use) limits printing to seven pages per week. I’ll just wait for the paperback that Julia has said will be availavle once she finishes all the epilogues.
    I love the idea of second epilogues, but I much prefer paper copies–even if the cost is higher. Readers younger than I may feel differently.

  40. I bought the JQ epilogues because I love her Bridgerton Series. I will keep downloading the epilogues, and will still buy them when they come out in a book (she said on her web site that she is hoping to put them all in a traditional book when they are all completed).
    I would not purchase a full online novel, because like a lot of other people, I spend enough time infront of a computer at work and at home. when it is time to relax, bring it on – I want a real book with pages that fits in my purse and can go anywhere.
    Now, before all the techies out there scream about hand held devices, I like the current ones made out of paper. I find the hand held devices hard to read, and I am still old fashioned enough to enjoy looking at my overflowing book shelves. Also going to the local library and trying out new author’s before I spend the money on the book.
    I guess my final verdict would be that online is good for short info, epilogues etc, but not for a complete novel or heaven help us a series!

    I assume we’ll all adjust to whatever new formats and technology lie ahead, although the kids will probably adjust faster. It’s interesting to hear the epilogues can be ordered in PDF format but not all at once. I understand the reasoning for that, but so few people have those handheld readers that I’m still wondering about the marketability of the venture. And continuing to watch what happens.
    And I will try to remember that ash tree! That Druid thing is there in my distant past as well.

    And I will try to remember that ash tree! That Druid thing is there in my distant past as well.
