Open source publishing experiment
Ever wanted to write a novel but didn't know where to start?
"Frankenrabbits" was a novella that I wrote in 2008. People seemed to like it and it was published in print by the British Fantasy Society in 2009. I self-published it on Amazon in 2011.
Nevertheless, I meant it to be a novel, not a 9000 word novella. I'm just not really a novelist. I like taking words out more than putting them in.
So it's YOUR turn. Please take it over and do whatever you like with it. I moved the content onto GitHub a few months ago, but Penflip seems a better fit.
If I get any pull requests, we can probably all build up the story.
It would be fun to read about the new [SPOILER] rat-men. The hero also might have a pup--child out there somewhere, so there could be something about their relationship.
I was going to write a "Battle of Primrose Hill Warren" section that I never started -- you could give it a try.
Or you could introduce incongruous NEW plot elements like ROBOT DINOSAURs, NINJAs, UFOs and a visit from SHERLOCK HOLMES.
And if you've half-written a regency romance, drop it in the middle and see if it fits.
Aside from modifying the text itself, it's licenced it under the ultra-liberal WTFPL. This means you could try a FUN project like one of these:
- republish it under your own name without modifying the text
- turn it into a screenplay, send it to Hollywood and make MILLIONS
- write a Frankenrabbits-themed tower defence game and sell it in the App Store
- write a Frankenrabbits musical and perform it in a church hall.
