Over the weekend, I polled a few peeps on Facebook to see what they thought of this new trend of writing a serial stories. These are in essence a longer piece of work which is broken into installments, kind of just like Charles Dickens did when he wrote a Christmas Carol, but instead of each portion being published in the newspaper, serial stories are sold at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other vendors in an e-book format.
It got me to thinking. Several of my author friends have decided to do this. Kharisma Rhayne has a wildly popular serial entitled Highlander Mine, which is a highander time travel story and B. L. Morticia just released her own serial called Wretched, which is a metal erotica story. While I don't do metal erotica or heaven forbid highlander *shudders at research involved with that* I do do BDSM. In fact, I love it and my series.
So after getting a consensus from several readers of my popular Doms of Chicago series I've decided to explore this trend and write a serial story set in Nisey and Caelan's world. Analise in her tale, Analise's Journey, will enter their world and while my current characters won't be the focus of this serial, they will make cameo appearances as she explores, changes and hopefully learns to accept her own needs.
Below is a blurb for her tale and a super sexy cover which will grace her e-books. Not to mention you can click HERE to find out more about the release dates (February 14th for the first episode), along with descriptions and excerpts. But before I reveal all, I have a question for you readers out there.
What would you expect to pay for an episode? Take into mind these episodes would run about 5 - 7K or approximately 20 to 25 pages each?
Comment below with your suggestion and your email address, and I'll enter you in a raffle to win a free copy of the first episode when it comes out on February 14th.

Hmm, could add up over time. I have no clue waht to charge. $.99ReplyDelete
I think that .99 sounds reasonable, I have not read any serials, actually have just started reading Kharisma's and it sounds fascinating to me, the installments and waiting for them. Also, will you be releasing them close to each other?ReplyDelete
Thanks for the feedback ladies. Eva, it's great to know you've picked up Kharisma's serial. She's an awesome writer. Yes they will be coming out in a fairly quick succession. Once a week, on Thursdays with the first being on February 14th.ReplyDelete
