Author Publishes Book as Facebook Photo Album

Author Alex Epstein is releasing his latest collection of short stories as a Facebook photo album. For My Next Illusion I Will Use Wings includes 88 pieces of ‘micro-fiction’ which have been saved as images in a Facebook  photo album to create what he is calling a Facebook book.

He explains the writing process in this blog post: “This project is still evolving when I write this; the thing that surprised me from the beginning was to witness (amazed and to be honest a little petrified) how hundreds of people, simultaneously, were reading the book “cover to cover” (by liking story after story), minutes after it was published, almost in real time.”

eBookNewser has more: “Electric Literature has published a sample from Epstein’s collection on their Facebook page, which will be translated from the original Hebrew into English.”
