You must have heard of novels being published on paper or as an e-book, but with the growing power and reach of social media, Rachel Hulin has done something which will excite you to the core.
With the increasing use of social media platforms, Rachel though of publishing her entire novel on Instagram, sounds cool right? This recent creative endeavor initiated by Rachel is a 9-month project, which will be published in the form of multiple Instagram posts. Just imagine that each post is a new page of the novel. She spent almost an year writing the novel which was initially planned to be published in the form of blog posts.
The so called ‘world’s first Instagram novel’ written by Rachel, who is a photographer and a writer, is titled ‘Hey Harry Hey Matilda’. The novel revolves around the two main characters Harry and Matilda Goodman, twins who are in their 30s. As the story proceeds, the twins share their daily lives in a series of emails exchanged between them as multiple Instagram post captions. Talking about the characters, Harry is an English professor and Matilda works as a wedding photographer.
