I wondering if its a good idea to write flash novels on hub pages or publish them on eBook and whether that will impact, in a bad way, if I want to look for an agent later on to publish any story projects as I do write novels, teens, young adult books? Can anyone help?
Someone yesterday suggested writing a teaser like maybe a first chapter of a book see what interest there is in the story.
LOL!...You know, mentioning it on here is ironic in a away, but then again, I did say that I'm interested in writing flash novels, which, with your intellectual sugestion is in fact just a chapter of my actual novel. You can visit my hubs and check out the one that I put a synopsis of since its going to available this fall, hopefully. (John Tobio and the Blitzreig Empire). Hope you like it.
P.S. I will be posting the first chapter soon.
I have never heard of the terminology "flash novel." What exactly is it?
'Flash novel' is a bit of a contradiction in terms. But if you want an agent and traditional career I would suggest sending short stories to reputable markets with high editorial standards.

I want to do e-book publishing but was advised by other experienced authors that it also has a real disadvantage to it because you might have a hard time going back to traditional publishing. Agents who discover that you have done E-book work before mostly tend to reject your query letter which is...

Well, this has got to be a first. I signed into HubPages because I needed to prove to myself that I could attract readers. I needed to prove this to myself. I have a few that read my things, and it does humble me to know that. Thank you to those of you that have. But...
