It's been two weeks since the reveal of Last Eden, a serial novel that's been years in the making. Since the unveiling, I've received several questions about Last Eden. Today, I'd like to talk a little more about the serial format.
Last Eden isn't a traditional novel - it's serialised. A serial is a work of fiction that is released in several instalments across a period of time. Last Eden will work in a similar fashion to a TV show where the narrative is ongoing and story is revealed gradually.
The idea of serialising the story is an artistic choice. Last Eden is a thriller, and delivering it as a serial emphasises the suspense of the story. In today's world, where eReaders are ubiquitous and our lives are busier than ever, the serial format provides an immersive way to get involved in the story of Last Eden; you'll be able to read in digestible instalments wherever and whenever.
To get the chapters our there efficiently, the book will be digital. I'm also exploring the possibility of the print format.
After twelve years Leon returns to the city of Eden in the search for answers on his dark past and the mysteries surrounding his parent's death. When he meets a woman named Dawn who shares a parallel tragedy, he finds himself thrown into a fight for truth. They soon discover not all is as it seems and the corruption of the past runs deep within the times of today. (Synopsis not final.)
Last Eden will be released this Winter. Further details will be released over the coming months.
