Serial Novel - The Why

Why am I writing a free serial novel?

Because I want to. That's really the only answer. I have a story idea, I like it, I've outlined it, and I'd like to present it to everyone. And I thought it would be fun to present the novel in much the same way as Dickens did in days long gone; as a serial.

Originally, I thought I'd release it as a daily thing, since I'm a few days ahead on the story, but I realized there's something about doing it daily that isn't conducive to the narrative flow of this story. So, I changed my mind to releasing larger quantities weekly. I think this will give for a more satisfying story flow, and will give the audience a chance to spend a little longer with the characters, should they so choose. Except this week, where you will get the Prologue and Chapter One today, and more on Friday. But after this first week, once a week!

The weekly release will also help me with the entire revision thing. That said, I'm sure I will make mistakes. I'm doing this without an editor, and I can only catch so much. Please, dear readers, feel free to point out oddities, errors, and all that fun stuff as you read. I would appreciate it.

At the end of all of this I will release it as a whole, still free, for everyone to download for their reading pleasure.

Now I am doing this for free, but, if you feel like supporting this and other creative endeavors of mine, I will have a donation button to the right side of the screen and one down below. It's not something I expect anyone to do, nor am I going to be upset if no one donates. I'll be writing this book no matter what. And it will be free no matter what. So please, enjoy it as it is released and I thank you all for taking a chance with it!
