Earlier this month, I mentioned on Twitter, Facebook and MySpace that I’m planning to do a free serial. It is indeed true.
A Happily Ever After of Her Own
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Melinda Lightfoot, a preschool teacher with an unusual ability to flit in and out of fairy tales, never thought she would get into trouble…
…until the Fairy Tale Police arrest her while she is in Beauty and the Beast. They offer her a deal: Find Beauty, who left the story when Melinda trespassed into it, or be charged with the ultimate crime — Fairy Tale Killer. If that’s not bad enough the Beast tags along in search of his true love, and Melinda starts falling for the fairy tale prince. She must choose between doing the right thing and having her own happily ever after.
Warning: This title contains the following: Fairy Godmother, the Wicked Witch, dysfunctional fairy tale families, ax-wielding executioners and a happily ever after (or two).
But I want to conduct a small experiment, and I need your help. (It won’t cost you a penny. I promise. :) )
Here’s how it works:
On Monday October 5, I’m going to post the first chapter of A Happily Ever After of Her Own. One week later, on October 12, the second chapter goes up. All you have to do is show up and read them. (If you need a reminder, follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my blog via email or RSS.)
After that is when the experiment really kicks off. I’m starting a newsletter, and I’d like people to sign up for it. (You can subscribe here.) So I’m going to offer the rest of the chapters as an incentive. They’re going to be available to newsletter subscribers only. Again: it won’t cost anything to join, and you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on a link that will be included at the end of each newsletter.
Rest assured, I will never share or sell your contact information. The newsletter is strictly for big announcements (for example: a book coming out), to let you in on future serials, extra excerpts, book giveaways and so on.
Please feel free to forward this post to anyone you think might be interested. FYI — A Happily Ever After of Her Own is rated PG.
PSA: The first two chapters are free, but the rest are available to newsletter subscribers only. Sign up now.
