Or — there’s many a slip. My plans for serializing Privilege Lives suffered a temporary hiccup before solidifying. I’d planned to finish editing The Warden and get it up on Smashwords in early January. The serialization of PL would go on for as long as it took, and then I would publish it. But I hadn’t counted on the darned thing getting so long. 37 chapters at a chapter a week? Oh boy. That would put off publishing until next Fall. So, I decided to try an experiment. I’ll start serializing, publish the book when it’s ready to go (April or May, I hope), and continue the serialization. That way, anyone who doesn’t want to buy the book can still read it in a slightly earlier draft. If they get impatient to know how it comes out, the book will be there to tempt them.
I’m also going to see if I can combine some of the shorter chapters, and set up a less-than-weekly schedule. Maybe every five days. However I decide to do it, look for the first two chapters to appear right here, the first week in January.
