Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Sean Platt and David Wright, Kings of the Serial, and the newest authors to Amazons 47North sic-fi/horror imprint at Amazon, are offering the pilot episode of their flagship series, Yesterdays Gone for FREE on Amazon.
Yesterdays Gone is the series that started it all for the serialized fictions writers. First published late last summer, with the full season available in early fall, the title was a game changer, not just for the writing duo, but for serialized fiction on Amazon.
The pair immediately started using alternative language to describe their series, never referring to their titles as books, but rather episodes or seasons, so readers had a shortcut to understanding that the authors were delivering a different sort of reading experience, more aligned with what they were used to with scripted television than anything else on Kindle.
Yesterdays Gone received immediate, rave reviews. Readers refer to the title as a mash up of LOST, 24 and maybe Die Hard, if written by Stephen King. Yesterdays Gone has three seasons and over 300 5-star reviews. In short, readers love them.
Were thrilled beyond belief, said Platt. Its been a year since the first season of Yesterdays Gone came out, and since then the climate of serialized fiction has definitely changed. With Amazon Serials now live, serialized fiction is cool.
Doing serials before they were cool has done wonders for the duo, landing them a publishing deal with 47North. An indie publisher to the bone, Platt has publicly stated that he wouldnt take a deal with any traditional publisher, but would accept one with Amazon.
Amazon gets it. They understand where things are going, and are helping authors get there. They helped make our dreams come true when other houses couldnt. Of course we would sign with them.
Platt and Wright have two serials in production with 47North, and a big improvement on their previous model which required a new ebook for every episode. Now, readers who purchase through Amazon Serials will pay once and receive subsequent episodes as they are released, making it a lot like TV for your Kindle.
Platt and Wright have already released their premier series, Z 2134, a zombie-thriller thats a mash up of 1984, Hunger Games, and The Walking Dead. Z 2134 is available now, at the introductory price of $1.99 for the entire season.
Platt and Wright hope that readers who enjoy Z 2134 will want to check out the series that started it all for them. The pilot episode is free, and as many fans have said, Impossible to put down.
Readers can download their FREE episode of Yesterdays Gone Season 1, Episode 1 now.
