GoodEReader’s upcoming interactive event with author Brian Donovan, whose #1 bestselling Amazon Kindle Single title Not A Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is available now, will take place Saturday, March 2nd, at 8:30pm ET via the Spreecast platform.
Donovan’s title grew out of his hilarious blog ItsNotAMatch.com, which chronicled his misadventures with trying online dating. He compiled about 100 of his worst experiences into the novella-length Single for readers’ amusement and quite frankly, reassurances.
“It actually started several years ago. I was writing for a website and I was supposed to be writing more news/comedy. I’ve always had crazy dating stories, and those stories became my website,” Donovan said in an interview with GoodEReader. “The thing that’s so different about writing digital books as opposed to conventional ones is the turnaround time is incredibly fast. We decided we wanted to create the book in November of last year, and it was to the publishers a few days before Christmas. We released it at the beginning of January. Thankfully, I had the website for so long that I had the stories that I knew people liked to read.”
The reason to go for a shorter Kindle Single versus growing this material into a full-length book was really based on the subject matter, in the author’s mind. A connective narrative is important in a longer work, but as a collection of humorous stories that are not all linked, the Single format seemed to be a better way to present consumable information.
The live Spreecast event with Donovan can be accessed at this LINK. Everyone is invited to attend, and in order to appear on camera with the author users will need a webcam and the latest version of Flash player.
