Story McStoryface

“Chapter Twenty-eight: “Occasionally, Not Eating Things Is the Better Choice” is live on Kindle Vella.

In fact, ALL of Hansel and Grendel is now available on Kindle Vella! You can access it here.

How does Kindle Vella work? Well, you can read either on the Amazon.com website or iOS Kindle app. Search for “Hansel and Grendel” or click the link above and you’ll see the story. The first three episodes of every story are free, and each following episode is unlocked using Tokens. The number of Tokens depends on the length of the episode, and roughly works out to 1 Token per 100 words. Tokens are pretty reasonable–a story like Hansel and Grendel will run between $8-10 in its entirety.

On Seizing Opportunities: Hansel and Grendel Moving to Kindle Vella

Story McStoryface

Well, this is awkward. As I was writing and publishing Hansel and Grendel, the fine folks at that big river namesake company were developing a platform dedicated to delivering serial fiction–JUST LIKE HANSEL AND GRENDEL. I wish they’d checked with me on the timing, but maybe they lost my e-mail address. Hahaha…they have my e-mail. All my other information, too.

The other GOOD news (for me, as a creator), is that after the first few episodes, people will use “tokens” to unlock further episodes–meaning there’s an easy way to make a little scratch from my work. The other…
