 Publishing Innovations: New Serial Fiction Startup Called “Radish”

This is one of the most interesting things I’ve seen in publishing since Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad. Or since Kindle hit the reading scene. And I’m going to be part of it through Riverdale Ave Books in New York. I don’t totally understand it all yet, but it’s supposed to be like Netflix for reading books. And I couldn’t be more excited about it. 

Radish recently announced it has raised $63.2 million in funding. Here’s a basic description of what they do. 

Breaking up book-length stories into smaller chapters that are released over days or weeks is an idea that was popularized in the 19th century, and startups have been trying to revive it for at least the past decade. Still, this round represents a major step up in funding, not just for Radish (which only raised around $5 million previously), but also compared to other startups in a relatively nascent market. (Digital fiction startup Wattpad is the notable exception.)

Here’s more. I know there are a lot of old-timers still holding on, but I still believe digital content is our future. 

And here’s a link to the actual Radish website. At a glance, it’s attractive and easy to navigate.
