That’s right! In just four days I’ll start posting Persona as a serialized novel online for free. I have to admit, I’m excited. I’ve got a seven week buffer, which means I have seven chapters edited and prepped so that if life gets in the way, or if I just need a little break, I can take one and not miss the weekly deadline.
I’m considering an audio version but I’ve only got the one little microphone and, let’s be frank, the idea of anyone listening to my voice nonstop for twenty minutes makes me a little self-conscious. For now I’m only guaranteeing the story blog, which you can find here and the Wattpad version.
I can’t give the Wattpad link yet because it hasn’t been created, but early Tuesday morning it’ll be here.
The amazing Chris Howard has been hard at work on the cover art for Persona and here’s what we’ve got so far …
Honestly, I love it. It absolutely captures the tone and heart of the book. This guy is amazing. You should really check out his stuff.
And now I have to confess that I’ve decided this blog will be echoing the Fact vs. Fiction page on the story blog for the duration of Persona’s serialization. The reason I’ve decided this is because I am a single parent who works full-time and goes to school full-time.
Time is tight and while I have a seven chapter buffer, I don’t have a blog buffer. If I want to get the fact vs. fiction stuff up at all, I have to sacrifice something. And trust me, I can’t sacrifice lego playtime with my kid.
Besides, it’s still a blog post about writing so I’m not really cheating here.
So! Here we are with four days left to go. The story blog is already set up so if you want to sign up via email it’s ready to go. That just means you’ll get the story delivered directly to your email every Tuesday.
I’m still working on how to upload a PDF version that can be downloaded and delivered to your eReader of choice. (If anyone knows how to do that, please say so. I’m a little lost myself.)
See you all in four days!
