So, I’ve been looking for ways to increase my web presence as well as ways to keep me from getting too burnt out on any one project. With the rise of #TuesdaySerial, and after reading the serials of several of the authors I follow, I decided that I wanted to get in on the game as well. Out of that decision was born Nightfall.

The idea for this serial is one I actually had several years ago. It began as a humorous pre-apocalyptic story, which just didn’t work for me. (Firstly, I’m not good at comedic writing. Secondly, the characters really preferred to interact with each other on their own terms without the apocalypse looming over their heads all the time.) I revamped the idea about a year ago, and worked on it for a while before I realized that it still wasn’t working. As a novel, even though I adored the characters and they worked very well together, it was just too daunting.

I was left, then, with characters that I loved and loved to write about who had no place to go. And when I stumbled upon the fragments of their story that have been languishing on my hard drive, I knew that this was the perfect place for them. They have a story that they want to tell, and I am obliged to tell it. Enjoy.
