Novelist Chad Prevost Delays 'Happiness'

This is a story about writing--a story that involves bigger questions about the current e-book revolution and the future of publishing.  It's a story about the way that writing can go off in unexpected directions.

Chad Prevost's first novel, The Director Of Happiness, was supposed to be published online in installments starting this month.  At the last minute, Prevost and his publisher decided to delay publication and add new perspectives to his novel.  In this funny, sometimes poignant interview, Prevost explains why.
