I would like to publish my writings on line, similar to how Stephen King publishes some of his work. Read a part of the book, buy the rest of it if you like it. Does anyone know where I can go to get information on how to go about doing that?
Thanks in advance.

The first post on this page:

http://forums.indiegamer.com/showthread.php?17891-How-to-Sell-Your-Game-Boot-Camp

has a pdf that covers some of the basics for setting up a website and payment options. It is aimed at independent video game makers, but a lot of the same information applies to your goal.

On the other hand, I can't recommend your approach. Stephen King can get away with the ransom model because he already has a large group of fans. If you are an unknown, or a new writer, then this will not work for you.

A better choice would be to leverage existing publishing avenues in order to promote your name or find a particular audience. After you have several books published, then jump to the independent publishing model.

There's simply too much competition for the limited number of readers out there if you start from nothing. It takes roughly 1000 core fans who sing your praises to all of their friends in order to generate the sort of awareness that you'll need. Otherwise you spend as much time on marketing as you do on writing, and end up earning peanuts for the effort.

In any case, I wish you good luck on your endeavors.
