Serial fiction has a long history in literature.  In fact, several works of classic 19th and 20th century literature was originally produced in a serial form, authors that include Charles Dickens and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and more recently, Alexander McCall Smith of The Ladies Detective Agency fame.

Serial fiction is written and published one chapter at a time.  This project will be a challenging experiment for me; I am a plotter, and I like to figure out a story and all of its twists and turns before I ever hit the first key.  In writing serial fiction, the writing process is full of unknowns and brimming with discoveries.   I’m excited by the possibility of feedback from readers, which can also be incorporated, something completed unheard of when writing a book for traditional publication.

Beginning Monday, May 31, 2010, I will begin a serialized work of fiction featuring the hero of my current work in progress, KAOS, Detective Micah Langston Hughes.  I write romantic suspense, so you can expect a character driven story, a handsome, charismatic, but flawed hero, an intelligent, sexy heroine and lots of steamy sex.  Since I’m not plotting this out in advance, what happens to these characters will be a surprise to me as well and I’m going to let the characters  (and hopefully my readers) guide the way.
