The Plan

I've been doing some serious thinking on what I'm going to do with "All for Owen" when I am finished. The story is progressing nicely, and it will be ready in one form or another this fall.

Originally, "All for Owen" was outlined to become a serial novel. Somewhere in the process of writing, I bagged that idea. I fell in love with the story and thought to myself, "this is going to be big." I started thinking about publishing traditionally. Recently, I've taken a second look at my original idea of the serial novel, here's why.

Readers don't have as much patience as they used to.

I published "The Cause" in 2011. It was much more successful than I had anticipated. In fact, I actually have a small audience of genuine readers out there. But one book isn't enough to keep readers, well, reading.

The solution is to write more books. I'm working on it, bit it's hard to keep the attention of readers when there is a two-year lull between books. In today's world, that just doesn't cut it.

So what do I do?

"All for Owen" is returning to its roots as a serial novel. Expect part one to be published October 2013. Expect frequent updates. Expect to enjoy the story at the same pace that I'm enjoying writing it. Expect more stories, more frequently.
