How good or bad an idea is it to write a book chapter-by-chapter, continuing on only if enough copies sell to cover costs to continue on for another chapter of writing?
If the playgrounds book taught me anything it is that writing for love (and I did love writing that) will not cover costs, especially for niche topics.
How would you set up a “pay-as-it-goes” writing system and what would be some gotchas? What price point for what might end up as a very short book? Could it turn purchasers into co-marketers, so they’ll keep getting updates?
Thinking of course, of an Apple TV book here, which seems pretty niche at this time. I’ll be done with the Swift Developer’s Cookbook very soon and am trying to brainstorm what’s next.
Thanks for your advice.
