Sigler and Harwood Serialize Success through Podcast Fiction
Scott Sigler and Seth Harwood write novels–only they serialize them through online podcasts. Their audience has grown now to the point that elite agents and publishing houses are climbing over one another to rep them.
The San Francisco Chronicle has the whole story, but good for these guys!
It’s also interesting to me that the Internet has had such an impact on the return of serialized fiction. Podcasting is a great throwback to the world of old radio drama, and online video offers a new twist on the classic cinematic serial format. Television has even re-embraced the format with shows like 24 and Lost telling a larger story in smaller installments, which is a nice change of pace from the self-contained sitcom or aimless narrative of a never ending soap opera.
