The History of Rock and Roll in 99 tweets

In 2011, after I’d completed the final draft of Sliding on the Snow Stone, it really felt like it was time to work on something completely different, so that’s what I did.

On the web, there are many exponents of twitter fiction – stories delivered in 140 characters or less. So, I decided to experiment with this form and tweeted away for a while, but something was missing. I needed a stronger focus, and so I came up with the idea of putting together a ‘twitter novel’.

The History of Rock and Roll in 99 tweets is a one-of-a-kind. It’s a  playful romp across six decades, from the fifties through to the noughties, that I designed as a quick read for Kindle or iPad users. It’s available on Kindle and Smashwords and more details are on its Facebook Page.

  1. The History of Rock and Roll in 99 Tweets is a clever meeting of twitter and rock and roll.

    Andy Szpuk has joined the growing Twitter Fiction movement to produce this very clever story in which each paragraph of 140 characters or less (the limit for a tweet) features the title or words from a rock and roll song.

    We follow Harry through a life of misdirected love and business failures and successes, all the while recognising tags to songs we’ve sung for generations.

    A very affordable piece of entertainment. Well done Mr. Szpuk.The History of Rock and Roll in 99 tweets

  2. What a brilliant idea. I hope to read this someday, and your short stories too (a form of writing that I hope to try on someday, when I’m brave enough). Thank you for stopping by my blog – appreciate the support!
