As my last post indicates, I’m rather disappointed with television. Don’t get me wrong. I love being able to watch stories unfold in film and my preference for “epics” makes television more appealing than movies, but the necessity to gain a large audience is a downside.
But the efforts of fans of Fringe to keep it on the air long enough to wrap up the story (and similar acts of fandom) are an inspiration.
There are people who want stories that meet criteria not met by the mass-motivated medias. Books are a great way to meet that desire. And that’s an opportunity for writers who want to tell stories that challenge their audience.
So, how would you go about igniting that kind of passion in your readers?
