I am planning to serialise my first Porfiry Petrovich novel on the social networking site twitter, starting tomorrow.
I'm not the first writer to use twitter to publish fiction. I've been very much enjoying Sarah Fox's unfolding story, Circus. Someone, I assume it's the author Laurie R. King, is tweeting quotes from the Mary Russell books, The Beekeeper's Apprentice and The Language of Bees.
And perhaps my favourite fictional twittering exercise is RealRaskolnikov, which purports to be tweets from Dostoevsky's double-axe-murderer. And very funny it is too.
As far as I know, I will be the first person to serialise (or twitterise, as I prefer to say) an already published novel. It will be an interesting exercise!
