Got this last night.
Dear Jack Leaf Willetts,
Thank you again for submitting your serial start to JukePop Serials! Congratulations, your serial start, The Pages of Evan Vaughan, has been selected for publication on our site.
This sort of mail is like goldust amongst the rejections, so I’m pleased as hell to have this published on such an awesome site. JukePop Serials works on a vote system; you like the serial you vote for it and it gets ranked accordingly.
This is good, since one of the reasons I submitted this piece to JPS was to get a reader response. I’m not sure about this one, not that I don’t think it has something to say, it’s just different to my usual stuff. The pages of Evan Vaughan is a journal about a guy with a whole load of insecurities and problems. Sound familiar? Maybe that’s why I ain’t sure about him, to close for comfort, not enough distance. The guy pretty much is me, so, I can’t like him (yet), but I need to know if other folk do.
It is also a commitment of sorts, a way of completing a manuscript that has been half written for about three years now. The first chapter went live this morning, so it pushes me into shaping up the second, and with a head full of ideas and a draw full of unfinished books, I need that push. Cheers JPS!
Anyway, you like voting, liking, tweeting and such, so check it out and be sure to click that big black VOTE NOW sign when you’re done!
