Serial storytelling by Facebook: two new novels

One Facebook-published ovel

Digital storytelling is sometimes a serial business.  Like soap operas or cliffhanger endings, these stories can be segmented out, joined together by time, emotional content, and clever narrative work.

Case in point: two novels are appearing in chunks, over time, on Facebook.  The University of Michigan is publishing Press Marjorie Cole’s Spell on the Water and Becky Thacker’s Faithful Unto Death in weekly installments.
