bachRichard Bach, author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions, published a Kindle Single called Illusions II:  The Adventures of a Reluctant Student last week.

In an interview with Thin Reads,Bach explained why he went with this format. “Kindle Singles is publishing on skates,” he said. “It prints like lightning; our book meets readers in hours.  I’ve spent so many years waiting for publishers to consider whether they wanted to print a book of mine, making contracts, taking months to fit it into the Fall list or the Spring list, fitting it into an advertising plan.   I’ll take the fast lane, please.”

The work is a sequel to his 1977 bestseller. The new book focuses on Bach’s near-death experience in a plane crash in 2012.
