Updated: Oct 8
"Why do you keep pushing me away with your jealousy and anger?" (Jealousy and Flirtation, oil painting by Haynes King , 1831-1904)
Pirating Slavery, my novel about buccaneers liberating slave ships, will be published in 16 installments twice a week for four months. The third chapter appears here: https://cynthiaadinakirkwo.wixsite.com/pirating-slavery/post/jealousy
Books, published as installments, make the story more manageable while heightening the experience of reading. The book becomes a companion and a commentary on your day-to-day life as you read it over the course of a few months.
Between chapters, readers have the time to share , talk and speculate about the book. Try it! Book serials first appeared in 1836, when a French newspaper published Honore de Balzac. At the same time, in England, Charles Dickens published The Pickwick Papers and ignited a trend. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published in 1851 in 40 installments. Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina was published in Russia from 1873 to 1877.
