Micah has been homeless for a over year, by choice. Marketing herself as a temporary artist in residence has allowed her to travel to art galleries all over the state of Michigan and beyond. Being an artistic vagabond is interesting and lucrative, but her life is about to change whether she’s ready or not.

I have been working on several “top secret” writing projects lately and one of them has found a home. “Ready Or Not” is my first foray into serialized fiction and I am so happy to be a part of the JukePop roster of authors. If you aren’t familiar with serialized fiction, think of it as the literary equivalent of a television series. Instead of the entire book (season) being released at one time, serial fiction is published one chapter (episode) at a time.

The first chapter of “Ready Or Not” is now up at the site. It is part of my Bartonville series, so I will be posting some of the recipes mentioned in the story here on my website. Eventually, when the story is complete, I will release the entire thing as an ebook. Until then, you can read the chapters as I publish them. It is free to read my story, and many others, on JukePop, but you do have to register to read beyond first chapters, leave comments and vote for your favorite stories. The site pays bonuses to authors who have Top 30 stories, determined by votes, each month. So make sure you show your favorite authors some love by voting.

As a reader, your comments can help shape the story. If you like or dislike something, leave a comment to let me know. I will take everything in consideration as I’m writing the story. How often to you get a chance to change the destiny of a fictional character?

I am so excited about this new writing adventure! If you would like to help me get the word out, please share it with your friends. I would really appreciate the help. There are sharing buttons under the cover and at the bottom of the chapter.

Have you ever read serialized fiction? What do you think of it?
