An Interview with Hugh Howey

Postby ThomasKCarpenter » Mon Aug 19, 2013 9:32 am

Most of the information on self-publishing has been said in other locations, but he does add a few items about Kindle Worlds and his view on writing in general.

The misconception out there is that writing requires a mastery of language, but nothing could be further from the truth. We don't need perfect prose to launch a writing career; we need entertaining storytelling. Story is king and prose is pawn. Knock readers' socks off. Shock them. Wow them. Give away your work and wow them some more. Basically: Ninjas + Sex, and you can’t go wrong.
