Soft Skull Buys Novel Off Twitter

frenchrevolution.jpgOn Bastille Day earlier this year, author Matt Stewart published his his 480,000-character debut novel “The French Revolution” entirely on Twitter–writing at the revolutionary rate of one tweet every 15 minutes.

For his troubles, Stewart earned a GalleyCat post and a book deal. According to Publishers Marketplace, his book sold to Denise Oswald at Soft Skull. The deal was negotiated by Lisa Grubka at Foundry Literary + Media.

Stewart explained his microblogging achievement to GalleyCat: “It’s tremendously rewarding to see that publishers are embracing a terrific story–and innovative (and dare I say Dickensian!) ways to connect with readers.”
