Why A Serial?

One month before Kat and Mouse: Guns For Hire goes live and everything's pretty much ready to go.

Some of you may be asking,"Why self-publish online? Why not go with the traditional publishing routes? Don't you know you're jeopardizing your future in print publishing? Have you lost your freakin' mind?"

I guess I'm a bit of a limelight whore attention hound. Probably comes from the same bug that makes me voice act. And what led me to DM more than play.

I enjoy creating something, sharing that creation with folk, and getting the immediate feedback. It's much the same as being onstage in front of an audience and hearing and seeing their response to your words and actions. Anyone who's been there can tell you: it's a rush.

I'll continue to submit my other stories to print and online markets. No change there.

But I think Kat and Mouse lends itself nicely to the serial format.

As far as jeopardizing future publishing because it first appeared online?

David Wellington and Monster Island seems to have done fine in print...
