The first season of serialized fiction series "Yesterday's Gone" by Platt & Wright is available for download free from today, Tuesday, November 27 until November 28.
I don't know if that means end of day November 28 or start of day.
Collective Inkwell, the indie publishers, normally price this at $5.99.
The six episodes of Yesterday's Gone Season One, has an average review rating of 4.7 stars out of 5, and there are over 180 5-star reviews on it. From the PR:
' First launched in July 2011, with an episode released every week, Yesterday's Gone quickly grew a loyal readership who eagerly awaited each new episode.
“What can I say to the reception Yesterday's Gone has had from readers?” Platt said when asked about the success of the series. “One word: Wow! We always knew we had a great idea with Yesterday's Gone, but only in our wildest dreams did it blow up this big."
In a dramatic twist, Platt and Wright, the pioneers of serialized fiction for the Kindle, were recently signed by Amazon's publishing arm, 47North, to write two new serialized novels, Z 2134 and Monstrous.
"With Amazon Serials now live, serialized fiction is generating a lot of buzz.” Platt said. "It feels great to be right in the middle of it all."
Featuring a cliffhanger at the end of every episode, the novel is a tense and nerve-wracking read.
"I always loved watching TV shows with a cliffhanger ending as a kid," said David Wright, co-author. "Waiting a whole week to find out what happens to the hero is both painful and exciting - a bittersweet satisfaction. That's one of my favorite feelings"
Wright added: "Serialized fiction is nearly as old as the novel itself, but TV upped the game and added a modern twist. With Yesterday's Gone, we aimed to repackage the punch of TV cliffhangers back into fiction."
In the most recent review, published November 25, Anthony White wrote of Yesterday's Gone Season One: "I loved this story and had the 'could not put it down experience' that I have always heard people talk about."
Three seasons of Yesterday's Gone, totally 18 episodes, have launched so far. Fans of the series are eagerly awaiting the fourth season. Episode 19 will launch summer 2013. '
