Forget Mainstream Publishing And Write What You Want

 

Forget Mainstream Publishing And Write What You Want
By
Neil Ostroff
 
My latest novel, PULP is a prime example of a book that would never see the light of day in commercial publishing yet still manages to capture a large indie audience with its strange, off-the-wall storyline. Originally rejected because of its “extremely bizarre content” by several major publishing houses who had requested partials, the book is now running strong in the online community.
Though it just went live a few days ago, hundreds of copies have already been sold due to an intense online marketing campaign. The internet allows the author to connect with like-minded readers from everywhere around the globe. Odds are, there are thousands, perhaps millions of people out there who think just like you. So write what you want.
The comments I’ve been getting over PULP fuels my passion to continue writing novels on the edge of the extreme. Here’s a short summary of PULP. You be the judge.
Struggling thriller writer Kevin Turner just received a panicked call from his ex-girlfriend Tina, a self-proclaimed clairvoyant prostitute. One of her clients, the mayor’s married son, died in her bed and she needs Kevin’s help to dispose of the body. As if Kevin doesn’t have enough problems. His current girlfriend is the spouse of the gay woman who signs his meager paycheck, his sixth credit card has hit its limit, he received word that his eight-month wait for his second advance check was being withheld by Gotham Publishing until he made the absurd changes in his manuscript that they wanted, and he just discovered his recently deceased father, who Tina claims she’s in contact with, owes ten grand from an internet gambling debt, which Kevin would now have to figure a way to pay. When Kevin discovers Tina’s psychotic brother has chopped up the body, and the police are finding the pieces spread across the suburbs, it sets off a chain of events more bizarre and horrifying than the plot of one of Kevin’s own novels.
