Frequently Asked Questions

Questions Regarding the Serials:

1. What is a serialized novel?

“In literature, a serial is a publishing format by which a single large work, most often a work of narrative fiction, is presented in contiguous (typically chronological) installments—also known as numbers, parts, or fascicles—either issued as separate publications or appearing in sequential issues of a single periodical publication. More generally, serial is applied in library and information science to materials ‘in any medium issued under the same title in a succession of discrete parts, usually numbered (or dated) and appearing at regular or irregular intervals with no predetermined conclusion.'” –Wikipedia

2. Why are you serializing this novel?

I’m a novelist. I don’t generally write short pieces without some kind of larger arc, so if I’m going to share any of my fiction, I’m going to need to serialize it so that I can post a manageable amount of the story that is accessible and easy to read.

3. How often do you update your serials?

I try to put something up every day when possible. Sometimes life will interfere with that, but for the most part, there should be a new part each day. Each part is one scene, and scenes range in length between 500 and 1000 words, sometimes over a 1000, but usually not by much. This is a range that I usually can fill in a day even if I don’t have it ready in advance.

4. Will the serials be released as ebooks?

Yes, we would like to release all the serials as ebooks at a later time. I cannot promise when those releases will happen, but as soon as they are complete, editing and other prep work begins on all of them, with a goal of turning them into ebooks and later print versions.

5. Will the ebooks of the serials be free?

No. I’ve already posted a free copy of the serial here on the site. The ebooks will have a cost.

6. The serial’s done, but I want more.

Sometimes I will write short pieces tied to the main story and place them in Kabobbles’ Choice. Other serials may have sequels in the works.
