Sean Platt is co-founder of the Collective Inkwell imprint, speaker, and author, with breakout indie hits such as Yesterday’s Gone, WhiteSpace, ForNevermore, Available Darkness, and Dark Crossings, plus traditionally published titles such as Z 2134 and Monstrous, with Amazon’s sci-fi/horror arm, 47North.
Along with David Wright, the two authors have billed themselves as “Kings of the Serial,” and have developed five series in 15 months:
With Collective Inkwell
Yesterday’s Gone: Post Apocalyptic – LOST by way of The Stand
WhiteSpace: Paranoid thriller on fictitious Hamilton Island
ForNevermore: YA horror that doesn’t read like YA Horror
Available Darkness: A new breed of vampire thriller
Dark Crossings: Short stories, killer endings
Z 2134: The Walking Dead meets The Hunger Games
Monstrous: Beauty and the Beast meets The Punisher
Inspired as much by Stephen King’s serialized story, “The Green Mile,” as superbly scripted TV shows, such as LOST, Fringe, The Wire, Mad Men, The Killing, The Walking Dead, Carnivale, and the Battlestar Galactica reboot.
Their first series, Yesterday’s Gone has received over 300 5-Star reviews, and has spent time on Amazon’s list of the Top 100 Best Reviewed Fiction Books.
Platt and Wright have made Tuesdays “the new black,” releasing a new 15,000-24,000 word “episode” of their audience pleasing series each Tuesday. Six episodes make a “season,” which are then compiled into a compilation for readers who prefer to devour the season all at once (like watching your favorite series on DVD!).
With a weekly release schedule of high quality serialized titles, Collective Inkwell is the HBO, Showtime, or AMC for the Kindle generation.
Sean Platt is a well-respected voice within the writing community, with hundreds of posts on writing at several of the top writing websites on the web. When not writing thousands of words each day, Sean is one-third of The Self Publishing and Better Off Undead Podcasts, together with co-hosts Johnny B. Truant and David Wright.
He lives in Ohio with his wife, daughter, and son.
