The serial as a feature, not a bug (The Kraken King FAQs)

By emails I’ve received and just general rumblings on the internet, I’ve picked up a sense that some readers feel they are being punished by the serial release in some way — that if they are buying the serial, the price and format is their punishment.

I’m always kind of astonished how quickly news spreads around romancelandia. This morning I got an email about this listing on Amazon — which I know wasn’t there yesterday, because I’ve been checking — asking me to confirm that, yes, the biographical info was correct.

The cover reveal for my first book is up at Dear Author. And I’ll be M. Brook now, because initials are cool. Like bow-ties. Wrecked is still(…)
