Attack of the Serial Novelist

One of the most common questions I get, once people discover I’m a writer, is the ever-popular, “What are you working on?”

Well, guess what? Today you’re finally getting an answer!

I’m actually working on a bunch of different projects, but the most exciting one is a serial I’m publishing with Jukepop.

First things first: what the heck is Jukepop?

Good question! Jukepop is a platform that helps writers publish their novels as serials. In case you’ve never read a novel this way, it’s basically portioning out the book to you one chapter at a time, whether that’s once a week, every two weeks, once a month, or whenever the hell the writer gets around to sitting their ass in a chair and typing up the next few scenes. Lovers of Charles Dickens probably already know that he’s the world’s foremost example of the serial novelist. So while I accidentally-on-purpose compare myself to the old man himself, I highly recommend reading novels in this manner, because it’s a cool way to see a story develop and it definitely heightens the suspense of reading a mystery.

Jukepop publishes all kinds of serials, including mysteries, which is why I decided to give the site a whirl and start publishing my novel, The Case of the Cunning Linguist, one chapter at a time.

You may remember The Case of the Cunning Linguist from my NaNoWriMo project this past November. If you’ve been wondering whatever became of that sexy murder-mystery, then guess what, Sherlock? The jig is up, and this mystery’s been solved! (Elementary, wasn’t it?)


If you’ve got a minute or two to take a look at the first chapter, I would really appreciate your feedback and your + votes (which are kind of like Facebook’s “Like” button), so head on over to Jukepop and tell me what you think.
