Hi everyone!  So I've just launched a new digital publishing company, Serial Box Publishing.  The idea is to be like HBO for readers--publishing great weekly serialized fiction organized into seasons like a TV show. Each serial will deliver a new episode every week which can be enjoyed on its own, or read with the others to give a full season arc. 

We'll be releasing six new serials over the next year, in all sorts of genres.  Our first serial, Bookburners, officially launches today with episodes 1 and 2.  It's an urban fantasy--think Supernatural meets the Da Vinci Code.  If you were a fan of Buffy or The X-Files, I think you'll get a kick out of it. We're releasing it simultaneously in text and audio You can read episode 1 for free, and episode 2 is just $1.99 ($2.99 for both text and audio). You can subscribe to future episodes for $1.59 for both text and audio.

Anyways, please check us out!
