Peter Brett Writes 100,000-Word Novel on Cell Phone

amd_brett.jpgForsaking more traditional tools like notebooks and laptops, high-tech novelist Peter Brett typed out a 100,000-word novel on his cell phone while riding the train to work every day.

The NY Daily News reports the nimble-fingered novelist could churn out 400 words during his 45-minute commute–producing a draft of “The Warded Man” on his phone.

Here’s more from the article: “The 400-page novel, which centers on three characters’ struggles in a world where killer demons roam the Earth at night, is the first in a series of at least three books. The book has sold 2,500 copies since Del Rey Books released it in the U.S. five weeks ago.” (Via TeleRead)
