LADY SATAN To Be Serialized ONLINE Before Going To Print!
You heard it here first! 'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' is going to be serialized before being released as a graphic novel. However, serialization will be happening online through an official LADY SATAN WEBSITE!
In my opinion, this is a rather exciting move that I feel will be beneficial for the book and the readers. The decision to serialize online first was not an easy one to make. There has been much thought put into this and the plan moving forward is pretty damn sturdy (even if I do say so myself). Allow me to explain:
'LADY SATAN: AN ANGEL IN A KILLERS DRESS' is a ten chapter graphic novel. Each chapter consists of 8 pages. So each week for ten weeks, a new chapter will be published online as a PDF file.
As the reader, you will be able to choose the price you pay for each chapter. If you want to throw a buck in the pot, then you can do exactly that and enjoy the chapter of your choosing. However, if you don't want to part with any money, then you can do that as well and enjoy the chapter of your choosing. Every penny earned through those of you who are kind enough to throw a buck or two in the pot will go towards releasing the entire graphic novel (along with extras) in print (which will be released sometime after the online serialization has finished).
On top of this, it means that the book can possibly start being released earlier than originally anticipated (more on that in a moment). And each chapter will work as it's own stand-alone issue. However, because each chapter is only eight pages long it would be silly to add too much extra stuff in each issue. But I like the idea of a letters page and I'm sure that some of you will like that idea too.
So as a bonus, there will be a letters section. It just won't be in the form of the written word...It will be a limited run podcast. So you'll be able to write in with your thoughts and questions and I will answer them on this podcast that will be exclusive to the official LADY SATAN WEBSITE.
Now, on to the release date.
While an official release date is still to be decided, I can tell you with confidence that the serialization of the book will be every Monday for ten weeks at 7.30 pm BST. That is when you will be able to grab the newly released chapter and listen to the newest episode of the letters page podcast (still haven't got an official title for the podcast yet).
The official LADY SATAN website is still in the works but once it's ready it will be unleashed before serialization begins. Once launched, you will be able to head on over to the LADY SATAN website and sign up to the mailing list in order to receive updates direct to your inbox as well as receiving an e-mail notification to let you know exactly when new chapters of the book and new episodes of the podcast have been released.
Work on the interior pages of the book is already underway and going well. There are 80 pages to illustrate altogether and I can tell you I'm taking my time with each page to make each page the best that I can at present.
That's it for now and hopefully, it won't be too much longer before a release date is set. And once it has been set you can be damned sure to hear about it here.
Until next time: Take care of yourselves, take care of each other and stay awesome!
