Of my September guests, I know J. D. Brown the least. One thing I know is she has a better grip on promoting her books on the internet than I do. If you don’t believe me, take a look at her Facebook Fan Page, where she has almost 900 likes. But I’ve been taking notes, and some of my notes have come from posts J. D. has made on the MuseItUp message board.
But enough about me. Let’s talk to J. D. about book serials, web series, and her newest project, Athena’s Oracle.
What is a book serial?
Serials are books published in episodes or small chunks such as a chapter. This format allows the reader the unique experience of enjoying the story as the author creates it.
What is a web series?
Web series are episodes that are released on the internet, usually free for readers to access and enjoy.
Book serials were extremely popular in the 1800s and, thanks to e-books, blogging, and the internet, the trend is now making a speedy comeback in the publishing industry!
I invite you to check out my online serial book, Athena’s Oracle. Every 1st of the month, a new chapter is added, completely free for your enjoyment, and will continue to do so until the story reaches its conclusion.
Leena’s ‘gift of sight’ secures her place as the next great oracle of Athena. Instead of being groomed for wifehood like other girls, Leena spends her days within the walls of the Acropolis, shuffled around by the clergy and doomed to be a virgin forever. Before her ascension, Leena decides to take matters into her own hands. With the help of her father’s book of alchemy, she casts an incantation calling forth her own personal hero. But when that hero turns out to be a rogue vampyre prince with a haunted past, Leena begins to question if her feelings for him are the work of divine intervention, or a love spell gone horribly wrong.
Athena’s Oracle is a prequel to the novels Dark Heirloom and Dark Liaison, also by J.D. Brown. Set in 4th century B.C.E., Athena’s Oracle chronicles the romance between Leena and Jalmari during the very early trials of their immortal lives.
