'Amanuensis' Is Coming
My new short novel will reach your inbox on September 27
Here’s what you need to know…
If you’re a free subscriber, you’ll automatically receive Part One of Amanuensis in seven daily installments.
Each installment has a reading/listening time of 2-to-5 minutes. There are 36 installments in all. After the initial seven days, the installments will stop—unless you have a paid subscription.
If you’d like to continue reading the novella, just sign up for a paid subscription at $5 per month, or $30 per year. If you already have a paid subscription, you will continue to receive the daily installments without interruption.
No worries if a paid subscription is not for you.
There will always be plenty of free content in The Jazprose Diaries. This includes my essays, short stories, and reviews. Unsubscribe at any time. We’ll still be friends in the morning.
Times have changed
These days, most people spend 15 minutes a day reading a book and 3 hours streaming movies. Fortunately, the Substack platform, which hosts my work, provides a way to fit books into our new way of living. One installment of my novel takes less time to read than a scroll through your Instagram feed.
I’ve deliberately kept the novella’s chapters and voiceovers short so they’ll fit into your busy day. That’s why this series will be delivered daily. It’s easier to keep up with the story on a daily basis.
Publishing is changing to keep up with the times. Amazon and other publishing platforms have launched a similar daily feed. Is this the future? Does this format work for you? Would you like larger/longer chapters? Should I ditch the narration?
Let me hear from you
Email me directly or post your thoughts at the bottom of each chapter. And remember—when you hit the LIKE, COMMENT, or SHARE buttons that appear on my stories, you help connect me with other readers.
It’s an honor to be able to share Amanuensis with you. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Thanks so much for being here!
PS: Quite a bit of research went into the writing of this book. But if you’re a history buff and notice something that’s not quite right, please let me know so I can revise as necessary.
This should be a very convenient way to receive some excellent content. Thanks.
Looking forward to it!
