Description

If you've heard that authors are successfully publishing their fiction as serials, and are curious about how it's done, read on. Readers enjoy serial fiction today, as they've done for centuries. 

Firstly, let's consider why you might consider writing serial fiction.

Why write serial fiction?

Everyone's busy today. A serial is by its nature, faster to write, and publish, than a novel. 

It's a quicker read too, and many readers appreciate this. While a reader may hesitate before committing hours to a novel, he can read an episode of your serial in minutes.

If you're a new author, a serial serves to introduce you to readers. A reader may not be willing to commit to a novel by a new author, but be willing to read an episode of a serial.

Discover how to write serial fiction (a serial isn't a longish novel)

Authors publish serials with varying degrees of success. A less experienced author simply chops up a novel into parts, then publishes the parts. This exercise is rarely successful.

Savvy authors know that while their serial has an overarching plot, each episode also needs to be a satisfying read on its own, even if it does conclude with a cliffhanger.

Plan, Write, And Publish Serial Fiction In Four Weeks is a master class in writing serial fiction. It's structured as a four week program. Each week has exercises. 

You can take longer than four weeks to complete the program, or you can zoom through it. Either way, when you've completed the class you'll be well on the way to publishing and promoting your own serials.

Serial fiction sells… but could you write it?

Readers have enjoyed serials for centuries. Serials are common in television series, but are less common in novels.

If you're a fiction author, perhaps you've wondered about writing serial fiction. You may not be certain of the difference between a serial, and a series.


What's the difference between a serial and a series?

A serial is a long story, like a novel, but it's split into a part-work, and published serially. While similar to a novel, a serial is written differently from a novel. Although each episode is complete in itself, it also has an incentive for readers to look for the next episode, and the next.

A series on the other hand, is a collection of short stories or novels, which are complete in themselves, but are connected in some way. Often the connection is via main character, or it may be via a location, or a via family.


Writing a serial can be more rewarding than writing a novel

Here's why.

You get fast feedback from readers, because you can publish an episode of an serial more quickly than you can a complete novel. It's easier to stay motivated too, because of readers' feedback.
