Our guest, Tim Coe, is a Chicago-based accidental writer of interactive genre fiction. Interactive, in that his readers decide what happens next in the story. Today, he’s leveraging a Google+ community to power the overall experience, and is building a powerful connection with his audience.
Tim has learned some interesting things along the way, as it’s not easy to give the audience real and meaningful choices, yet keep the story from going off the rails. Tim is also still trying to figure out what’s next in his own adventure in getting these books published. We offered up a couple of ideas, and maybe you’ll have some of your own when you listen to this sixteen minute episode of The Books and Beer Hangout.
Of course, no show would be complete without some tasty craft beer. Tim enjoyed a Revolution Repo Man Rye Stout, Jeff returned to a BooBoo Squad Gut Shot Stout, and Evo found another Knee Deep Simtra Triple IPA. Cheers!
