Would you let fans read your book as you write it?

UK authorĀ Silvia Hartmann will launch “The Naked Writer” project on September 12th, letting her readers follow along on Google Docs as she writes her next novel. Hartmann (pictured) will share the Google Docs link via her social networks. Whoever clicks on the link can offer feedback and watch her work.

Hartmann explained in the release: “This is an amazing opportunity for me as an author to push the boundaries of the author/reader relationship. It will be amazing to write knowing that people will be viewing each word, paragraph and chapter, each backspace as I go along! Some authors plan their manuscripts in advance, but my stories tend to have a life of their own and I look forward to seeing what unfolds with everybody else!”
