New Beginnings

I just read the opening of The One That Got Away on Amazon using the ‘look inside’ feature and realised that the tiny sample size there means that you can’t read much of the story in the ‘look inside’ sample; a story which doesn’t get to the point quickly isn’t going to sell well because readers need to be enticed by what is available.

Which isn’t so bad as stories should open with a bang and keep the reader’s interest. I’m going to try an experiment; I’ve rewritten the opening of The One That Got Away on Amazon to cut it down and enter the real story faster while leaving the original, slower, opening on Smashwords. Let’s see which of them sells better.
