The Sixth Seal

If I could do a backflip, I would. My serialized novel, The Sixth Seal, has gone live over at JukePop Serials, and I am absolutely ecstatic. In case you didn't read my previous post on this wonderful new serial fiction site (shame on you), it's a great place that hosts serialized works by new and established authors alike. The thing that sets it apart from similar sites is that they encourage interaction between the writer and reader. You can vote for your favorites, and even make suggestions to the authors.



The Sixth Seal is a novel that I wrote during last year's NaNoWriMo. However, anyone that has ever participated in this delightful event knows that despite how creatively liberating it is, one is often left with a very dismal and often incomplete first draft. Unfortunately that was the case with the Sixth Seal, so I was more than a little interested when I first heard about JukePop. What better way to allow some of this work to see the light of day. Of course I had to do some polishing to get the first chapter ready for submission, but I've become newly invigorated by the story line.

Yes, I do have quite a few rough scenes written and a fairly good idea of where the story is going, but I am also looking forward to going where the moment takes me and incorporating feedback from readers. That's not to say that I'll incorporate every suggestion into the story, but I'll certainly consider any feedback given.

My plan is to release one new 2,000 to 2,500 word chapter every Saturday. The editors of the site suggest adhering to a regular schedule as much as possible in order to build and keep a loyal following. I think this is going to work out pretty well for me because I do my best work under deadlines.

This is definitely going to be a great adventure and learning experience for me, and I'm excited to be sharing it with all of you. So stop by JukePop, and while you're there check out some of the other great works. There are quite a few wonderful stories encompassing an array of genres. By the way, if you write romances, JukePop is looking for you. I've seen a few posts saying they are actively seeking submissions in romance.
