Chapter 8 has arrived.

Howdy all!

As promised, chapter 8 of my serial, ‘Unbreakable,’ is now available for your reading pleasure at Jukepopserials.com. Take some time to read it and cast your vote for it if it meets with the approval of your sick and twisted mind.  Also, if you haven’t yet done so, read through chapter 7 which has been up for the past week. I realize that for many of you, Halloween didn’t exactly leave you with a lot of free time on your hands. That’s okay, but do read through that chapter too, especially if you’ve been keeping up with the serial. It may be one of the shorter chapters I’ve ever written for a project, but it packs quite the punch. It doesn’t need to be Halloween for MY twisted mind to come up with something horrifying. Don’t let that stop you from seeking the thrill of a good story.

I’m aware that I keep explaining things as I discover them about Jukepop’s website. I imagine that if I’m still discovering how things really work, that probably means that my readers are still figuring things out. That being said, I was e-mailed not too long ago by the editor and told that the site will be going international sometime soon. Why that is a surprise to me is because I thought that being on the world wide web sort of meant that it was international already. Nevertheless, this spells good things for me, especially since my blog already has international readers. Yay for me!

Another thing that I wanted to mention is the feature known as “book-shelving.” If I’m not mistaken, any of my readers can ‘book-shelve’ my serial once they’ve signed on and begun to read. The option to bookshelf is located in the dark grey bar at the bottom of the screen whenever you red a chapter. It is the third link to the right of the chapter arrows. Book shelving my serial would mean that you automatically receive an email whenever I post a new chapter. What could be more convenient for a reader? Do yourself the favor of book-shelving my serial if you like it so much. There are already eight chapters in total. There will be many more to come. Trust me. Check out the links above and read on.

On that note, I must be off. More writing awaits me like a lover with a bottle of wine. How intoxicating ..

Chapters 1-5

Howdy, readers.

It seems that the website for Jukepopserials.com has evolved. Either that, or I’ve discovered a feature that’s new to me.  Each of the serials on the site now reports the number of votes that each story has obtained. I was able to hover the point of my mouse over my serial, “Unbreakable,” and read the total number of votes I’ve gotten so far for my five chapters. That number is 22. I’m happy!

I am able to see where I rank literally by looking at where the cover for “Unbreakable” is in relation to the other covers to other serials. It would seem that this can be done by genre.

I’ll just say I aim to be the best.

I think in time, I will garner more votes. I prefer to allow my writing to speak for itself. But I know my kick-ass  new cover is going to get more and more attention. It seems that people need to get onto the site and create an account to cast their votes. I urge as many of you as possible to do this. I just KNOW you’ll like my story, so I’ve no need to worry that you’ll sign up and cast a vote my way, right? 😉

I no longer feel a need to project a false humility about my talent. It’s there. But pure talent is not enough. Practice makes perfect, and there is no way for me to hone my craft if there are no readers to appreciate it.  So go, read, enjoy! The moment you elect to read more of my chapters, I get a vote. I just hope to keep my readers’ interest in the long run with my crazy imagination.

Chapter 6 of ‘Unbreakable’ will be arriving this Thursday. It’s already underway. Let’s just say things are about to take a turn ..
