I've been plagued with a 'what would happen if' question and finally decided to put it out to all of my friends as a possibilty. I'm lazy, not even sure I want to take on this task, and have no idea how to go about it.
Here's the question: If it's true books that sell the best are the ones with the most and highest ratings, then why can't we compile a book of Gather authors' short poems, prose and fiction stories that have a twist? I've read so many wonderful pieces on Gather, it seems a shame they aren't published.
Here's my idea. Compile a book of twisted shorties, publish an ebook on Amazon (publishing's free) and charge $0.00. Then ask your friends and their friends to write a review on Amazon. If we could get 500 good reviews, would our book become a best seller?
Right now I'm just putting the idea out to see what you guys think, perhaps hear your ideas and how you'd go about it.
