To Part Publish Or Not To Part Publish.

So, I’ve finished part 1 of a series I plan on releasing to Amazon soon. It’s 1 of 9 story parts I plan to release all between 7 and 10 thousand words long. It will be a long novella or a short novel in its entirety.

But I’m wondering whether readers will appreciate having to buy the parts seperately. I know that if one of my favourite authors were releasing a new book 7,000 words at a time, I’d snatch it up in a heart beat. But then I can be pretty patient and I doubt I’m a good representative of the population of my possible readers.

I’d only sell each part for 4o cents each. That way people will get a taste of the entire 9 part series. Hopefully they’ll love it and snatch up the others.

Does anyone have any thoughts about this idea?

    Some Graphic Novels are sold this way, so I suppose it depends whether your story is episodic. ‘Part publishing’ is an interesting idea and one I have been toying with myself.
