Chapter Eleven Now Available. Plus, Starlette Now Available at DiscoverLit!

30 Nov

Chapter Eleven of Starlette is now available on Kindle and Nook. With only two chapters to go after this, things are reaching the boiling point for Starlette and her cast. If you think you know what will happen… well, you might know what will happen, but try to act surprised when you read it.

But wait, there’s more!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about a guest blog that I wrote for a site called DiscoverLit. The site, which is just now opening to the public, will be a must-know destination for anyone who has an interest in reading (or writing) serial novels or other short form fiction. I’ve been giving my input to them as the writer of a serial and I think that you will really like that they have to offer.

Before I start going into the details, I just want to make it clear that aside from posting my work on the site, as I do on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, I really have no stake in this company. I’ve sent them some input and ideas, but I have not taken any money from them. I’m simply excited by what they offer in terms of support for serials.

For starters, they will have the option to subscribe to a series! I’ve contacted Amazon about this possibility in the past, but they have not put any serial support in place yet. With the subscription, you can get a discount on the overall series, and each chapter/episode will be sent directly to your device upon release. You can purchase back-issues at their normal price. Starlette will be released on a separate schedule there. The material will be the same as on Kindle and Nook, but there will be time to benefit from the subscription option before the end of the series, rather than dumping the whole series out at once and not allowing readers to share those benefits.

The site will also allow authors to offer discounts and free chapters. I will be offering the first three chapters of Starlette for free, which is something that I can’t do on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

If you’re a reader of serialized fiction, this should appeal to you. Having something show up on your Kindle is a lot easier than having to remember to go back and seek out each chapter when they’re released.

If you’re a writer who has stayed away from writing a serial because of the limitations that some other sites have, check out DiscoverLit. Once they’re at full speed, I think they’ll be a great asset to the indie publishing community.

 

I might sound like an infomercial salesman here, but considering the less than friendly response I have gotten from certain sites who have no love for serials, I think this could be pretty awesome. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Chapter Ten is upon us! Check out “Media Blitz” and prepare yourselves for the final chapters of Starlette which comes to its shocking, mind blowing, overly-hyped conclusion on December 28th!

Also, while you’re checking things out, be sure to click on over to DiscoverLit, where I am guest blogging this week. DiscoverLit is a new site for ebook readers/authors, which has a focus on serial novels and short form fiction. They’re just starting out now, so be sure to look around the site while you’re reading my incredibly informative article, “How to Avoid Being a Serial Killer”
