I haven't updated in a while so I thought I'd let everyone know what's been going on in the world of RC Woods.
I've started writing a screenplay for the story of 'The Brothers Series'. It's much more difficult than I imagined, and nothing at all like writing a book, but I've already committed myself so I will finish it! (Might be 2 years from now, but I WILL finish it!) I have it all pictured in my mind, but squeezing it out of that deep, dark hole into an acceptable format is a completely different story.
Meanwhile, I have started a new story delving into the circumstances of Jeremy's life resulting in his placement with Carol and Victor Mathews. (And ultimately, Shane) It's a bit of a tragic beginning, but I hope it will help explain some things about him. The book will be a stand-alone and will not require prior reading of 'The Brothers Series'. But, it would be a good history lesson for those who've already read the series to find out exactly how the relationship formed between the two men.
I've been thinking of doing something I've never done before..(Hmmmm..... sounds so serious, doesn't it?) When it is finished, I'm thinking of offering a chapter each week FREE on this website. Nothing to download, nothing to buy. I still get to write and you still get to read it....for free.
I'd like to know what you think. Is it a good idea? Is it a bad idea?
What say YOU?

Stephen King offered chapters as 'novellas' for purchase once a week. I think it was The Green Mile. I still have them...somewhere. I would finish the mini-book (chapter) the first night and had to wait a whole week for the next to become available! It created anticipation and the marketing of the book was a hot topic because it was unusual. I loved looking forward to getting my next fix. I think it's a great idea and the price per novella was certainly affordable. Sign me up for a copy of the book. I still prefer paper. Thanks, and keep it up!!
