Queen, the Serial Novel –

Choosing (for now)

Serial Fiction in Kindle Unlimited vs Kindle Scout.

It’s specific to my creative point in time.

Right off, want to say I had hoped to have a book in Kindle Scout’s nominating program by now. And I’m already rough outlining the book I will submit (my followup thriller to Queen).

Both opportunities, Kindle Scout and doing a serial novel release, have been long term goals of mine.

What happened is simple.

Queen is intricate enough (for my writing capabilities) to still require tweaking.

Small changes in pacing here and there, typos, and character development kept becoming apparent. I couldn’t let the story go into Kindle Scout feeling it wasn’t to the best that I could see.

Thus, it was the need to insert a number of small but needed chapters, to clarify themes, character arcs, and maintain the right pulse of pacing, that finished off my decision.

Everything has its pros can cons, and a big plus of creating a true serial fiction work, is being able to have time to tweak.

Now chapter endings can be squeezed to the right point of departure.

Beginnings can allude to “before,” especially after a scene jump.

And I’m already discovering more pluses to doing a serial.

As per the section below, Some of  My Upcoming Posts re Queen, I’ll have much more say about this new process, serializing a novel.
