While it is our usual practice to save up news and announcements for our monthly editorials, we occasionally have such exciting news that it just can’t wait for the end of the month.
Today, it is our pleasure to announce that the website and subscription system for Lifting Up Veronica by K.C. Ball is now live and operational.
Lifting Up Veronica is the first title from Every Day Novels, our newest venture, created for our readers who already enjoy daily quick-read stories and who will likely also enjoy a novel delivered in that same bite-sized online-optimized format. Visit the Every Day Novels website to learn more about the concept and get answers to some frequently asked questions.
Over time, we hope to offer serialized novels from a variety of genres. Lifting Up Veronica can best be described as literary suspense, with prose and characterization to satisfy literary tastes, and enough action and tension to keep suspense-loving readers hooked:
Lifting Up Veronica follows Michael Kovac, a sociologist from Ohio State University, as he travels to rural West Virginia in the summer of 1960 to shoot footage for a documentary during a week-long tent meeting at a Signs Followers church — a Christian sect best known for their practice of handling venomous snakes and participating in other potentially deadly practices…
K.C. Ball lives in Seattle, Washington. She became an addict of the written word as a child in Ohio and began writing fiction full-time four years ago. Her short fiction has appeared in print and online; she has won the Writers of the Future award and graduated from Clarion West. Lifting Up Veronica is her first novel.
We hope you’ll subscribe and enjoy the global collective experience of reading Lifting Up Veronica in serialized form together with other subscribers from around the world. You’ll have the same commenting privileges on each chapter as you do here on each story at EDF, plus a private subscribers-only forum to get to know the other subscribers, and the subscription price includes a PDF or e-book version of the complete novel to keep at the end of serialization. There may also be other unannounced benefits such as prize draws, bonus material, and/or author chats, which you won’t even know about unless you’ve already subscribed. Another good thing to know is that subscribing to Lifting Up Veronica helps support Every Day Fiction, so everybody wins!
One last thing: to celebrate the launch of Lifting Up Veronica, there’s a special promotion — 20% off the regular subscription price of US$5: for a short time, you can get your subscription for only $4, less than the cost of a large eggnog latte for 15 whole weeks of entertainment! But don’t wait, as it won’t last long..
